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. Thansk for choosing us for your first balloon ride! Until... More

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.

Took a ride this morning. First got an early morning start, and got to help a bit to inflate the huge balloon. Flight was great, nice and easy take off and flight. Got to see a lot of beauty that is Albuquerque. Loved our guides too. Definitely doing this again!!

First balloon ride for my family (two adults and a teenager) and we loved it! - thanks to the terrific crew: Randy, Jarod, and the office staff that answered our questions beforehand. The balloon held just the three of us and Randy. We traveled about 6 miles, about 2000 feet up, and could see for 70 miles. Spectacular, and even... More
