The balloon ride and our pilot, Brad, were fantastic, but coming back to a broken car window and stolen backpack ruined the memory - especially when we learned that the day before several cars were also broken into, yet they did not warn us.

Experience: The experience was really wonderful. I especially loved seeing the sun rise over the city of Albuquerque. I would highly recommend the hot air balloon ride excursion. Company: The balloon operator/pilot (Brad) was informative, friendly and clearly loved what he does. We had to reschedule because winds were over 10 mph and Rainbow Ryders was really easy to work with.

UNFORGETTABLE experience. a MUST-DO for any age

Our pilot, Chris, and his team were absolute perfection. The views we had of the area were superb; seeing the Rio Grande river was amazing (our reflection in the water); the take-off and landing were smooth; Chris answered every question we had during the flight and he knew every landmark that we asked about and he pointed out many in addition. This experience was top-notch and is worth 100x the cost. It was not bright and sunny on our trip, but it did not take away from the total awesomeness one bit.

Chris was so fabulous. He was energetic, fun, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He was helpful with people who needed extra help and/or time. The whole crew worked together like a fine oiled machine from start to finish. The actual ride itself was just a perfect, beautiful experience. Chris gave us landmarks we were looking at and answered every question . He truly loves ballooning and it shows. He even gave us a map of the exact flight path we took, complete with statistics!! I would recommend this for any person, any age and any ability!!!
