I have wanted to do a balloon ride since 1973, when the first Balloon Fiesta was held in Albuquerque. For some reason, it never happened until today. This company does a wonderful job of showing you the experience of hot air ballooning. You get to help during inflation, and to pack it back up after your flight. We ascended five... More

Amazing experience for any age. Only drawback is you have to like getting up to before sunrise! Beautiful balloons and nice people. Delicious food

The Balloon Festival is very cool! Hundreds of balloons from all over the world. Very cute shapes like a cow. Neat stands to shop at. Little cold so early in the morning but a worthwhile outing.

Wow, what a wonderful way to celebrate our 32nd anniversary! Thank you #MurrayConrad and Jimmy at #WorldBalloon. Another company, Rainbow Ryders, canceled our previously scheduled reservation three different times while promising to take us on the next flight. Knowing that we were running out of days, I frantically phoned Leslie, after hours, and she saved our vacation. The next morning,... More

My family booked the champagne flight and had an amazing experience. The World Balloon crew was professional and welcoming. As expected, the view was amazing and the ride itself, peaceful. We paired our balloon ride with a jeep tour which allowed us to enjoy Albuquerque in two very different ways. I would highly recommend a tour with World Balloon.

From the time we walked up to Murray and the already laid out hot air balloon I knew that this experience would be special, not just because we were going to be flying at an height of 2,000 and because it was the first time my girlfriend and I had been to Alburquerque, but because from the first time we...

It's not just about the beautiful views, it's also about the friendliness of our team and the safety you feel when cruising along, and I'm pleased we did well in both regards.

It was absolutely amazing to ride the balloon up in the air. The staff was friendly. The pilot was very experienced and funny. It was surprisingly steady and peaceful once it gets up there. No motion sickness at all if you are worried about that.
