Great view!

Great view with safe riding. Riding over Rio Grande with view of sunrise is great. It's not too cold in the balloon. Great experience. And kind staffs!

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

We booked a sunrise flight for the morning of our wedding anniversary. I was a bit nervous but once we got there and met the crew we felt very comfortable. All of the crew members were nice and polite and the captain was great! Kept us laughing and made sure we all got to see every view we could. Including... More

We started our tour of New Mexico by attending the International Balloon Festival in Albuquerque on Oct 1, 2016. Our bus left our hotel at 5am and we had boxed breakfast in the bus. It was quite a distance between Hyatt Tamaya Resort to the balloon site . While on the highway we saw hundreds/thousands of cars going to the... More

We're a hot air balloon service that has rides at the festival, but it sounds like you might've meant to review the festival itself. Either way, we're happy you had a great time. If you'd ever like to go up in one of those balloons please give us a call! Thanks, Keith More

Our party of 3 flew with World Balloon during the Balloon Fiesta. My husband Ned brother in law helped get the balloon inflated and we took off only to be told we were going the wrong way...straight into a temporary flight restricted zone. Kris our pilot was on his radio trying to find some west winds but couldn't find anything.... More

I'm really sorry your flight with us wasn't more fun, and I understand how frustrating that can be. I hope you understand that sometimes unfavorable winds can happen, and I know that's no consolation for a short trip. This is certainly not the experience we plan for any of our guests. I hope you give us another shot in the... More

A hot air balloon ride has been on my bucket list since the childhood days of Wizard of Oz. Whenever I visit Albuquerque, I can't help but admire the majestic balloons floating overhead like they are part of the scenery. This trip to see family, I booked a sunrise ride. The entire experience from watching the crew bring the balloon... More

We were in Albuquerque during the Balloon Festival in October 2016 and took a balloon ride with World Balloon a second time. (We had previously rode with them in 2014). We had the same pilot and the same excellent experience. Our original ride was re-scheduled to the following day due to wind conditions. We saw many other balloon vendors choose... More
