We flew very close to the Rio Grande, and our landing was relatively easy. Afterward, Murray gave us a lesson on the history of ballooning while the crew served mimosas and... More

We really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone was great including our pilot, Glo, and the chase crew. We had the chance to help with set up and break down. Don't hesitate to book a ride, it is worth every single penny.

Very memorable and exciting trip! From the staff who greeted us to Murray our pilot made this "todo" list trip an all time favorite. I will talk about this for years to come. I was ecstatic about being a volunteer to help the balloon get blown up, to the tree tops tickling our feet, and almost a touchdown in the... More
