We came to Albuquerque to assist to a Summit for a AIHP Knowledge Sharing Summit and Marketplace, and we stayed one more night to enjoy this beautiful city. But we saw the brochure with this attraction and decided to stay one more night only to ride on a balloon. Something that

If you are looking for a memorable experience while visiting Albuquerque, this is the perfect activity! Soaring the skies with Dean at sunset provided beautiful views of the city and mountains. No better way to see Albuquerque.

First time riding a hot air balloon. Have always been a bit scared to, and admittedly was feeling a little nervous watching the balloon get filled with flaming hot air. However, those fears did not last long. Dean was our pilot and his relaxed, confident manner made us feel

My 13 year old daughter and I rode with Dean and the Rainbow Ryders this afternoon. Had a great time. Trip was amazing and Dean and his crew were top notch. If you are considering a balloon ride, give these guys a call. You won't be disappointed.

We came to the Fiesta with reservations to ride early on Thursday morning. Alas, the wind was too high to fly. Got on standby for the next morning. Got there at 3am, still didn't get to ride. Was really bummed out. Decided to take one of the afternoon flights on Friday. Got

Patrick is an excellent pilot and his crew members are great as well! We expect nothing less than for you to have an amazing time with them. The safety of our pilots and passengers is always our main concern, so as we are truly sorry for your cancelled flight, it was better to keep everyone grounded and safe and not take the risk of going up in ill-suited weather conditions. Thank you so much for choosing to fly with us!
