My loving daughter surprised me with this balloon ride and I had an excellent experience with this flight. I have never been on a balloon flight before and the pilot explained several operations of the balloon including the history of ballooning. We enjoyed helping with the setup and packing of the balloon. I highly recommend this company to experience a... More

Not only did they make it an enjoyable experience, but they helped make it a priceless memory! We were able to learn how to unpack and repack the balloon as well as the history of ballooning. The amazing views and commentary made possible by our exceptionally professional pilot were spectacular!

Enjoyed our whole ballooning experiencing from start to finish. We assisted in airing-up the balloon and helped pack-up at the end. The views were wonderful and amazingly quiet as we floated towards the Rio Grande. We took the ride on a weekday and only a few other balloons were up and about. Al, our pilot, has a great attitude and... More

I'd recommend a balloon flight if you are not afraid of heights. It was fun to arrive before sun up and watch the assembly of the balloon and gondola. We had a beautiful sunrise flight and the view of the desert and mountains is memorable. Our flight ended on a vacant lot near a neighborhood. We helped walk the still... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the experience on our flight in a hot air balloon. The story told by the pilot and the champagne after the flight was very entertaining. Also enjoyed the privilege of backing up the ballon and basket after the flight.

Had an amazing time with Private Balloon Flights. We scheduled a sunrise flight and we were the first balloon in all of Albuquerque to get up into the air - and actually see the sunrise. Everyone working there were awesome and really sweet. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

First off I am not a paying customer and never will be after how I was treated. My fiancé had booked a couples flight with the company and the first day due to high winds the flight was cancelled, which is completely understandable. My finace was than asked if he wanted another date such as the following day. He was... More

Thank you for your review. We are still sorry (as we told you on the phone) that a cold front came through causing every company in town to have to cancel their flights on the morning you were scheduled. As much as we’d like to, we can not control the weather. Safety is our first concern, and this is why... More

Who doesn't have a hot air balloon ride on their bucket list? My daughter and 2 teenage grandsons went with me. Enjoyed it very much. Crew was knowledgeable and experienced. We felt safe with them. They told us just what to expect. Would have loved to be up longer.

Me and my wife were driving Route 66. Managed to get a last minute booking for sunrise flight and it was amazing! Our pilot was Charles and he ensured that experience is both safe and fun. Im a fixed wing pilot myself and it was fun to see how ballooning works :-) We enjoyed helping to launch the balloon, and... More
