Great team that provides a fun, informative, safe ballooning experience. Fly in Santa Fe over the desert (not over the city in Albuquerque)! Top-notch service and flying -- we loved our trip. Highly recommended.

DON'T GO TO ALBUQUERQUE! This is far better and not over housing. Out over the desert and ravines. Beautiful as the sun rises in the morning. Johnny and Jeanne will take you for a wonderful experience.
