This had been on my bucket list for quite sometime. My husband and I just returned from New Mexico for our 50th wedding anniversary and did this for our anniversary. It was AMAZING! I researched balloon companies in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Gallop for safety...More

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning experience with Johnny and his crew. They were extremely careful in checking out weather conditions. The ride to the location was made interesting by the opportunity to hear Johnny's stories and history. Would highly recommend this activity.

The hardest working man in the balloon business and one of its pioneers. He's got a dedicated team around him, and he clearly loves doing what he does. If you can wake up in time for a 5:45am pickup, this is a must-do.

Johnny and Jeannie were the best. They picked us up at our hotel, gave us great background about their business and made the entire experience one to remember. The Balloon ride was excellent. Highly recommended.

We started early in the morning before sunrise and traveled to the take off location about 45 minutes away. The crew and owner were all great people - professional & safety conscious. The balloon ride was smooth, magical and a lot of fun!

The balloon operator tries very hard to make his landing as smooth as possible. Our balloon was filled to capacity - 8 people - and we were all told to lean back and brace ourselves. This was not necessary, just a... More

I agree with Bart. Bring a light jacket. You also may want to bring a hat or ball cap. The burner going off above your head can be a little hot and the hat deflects that intensity.
