Tour Description

Join this inclusive tour to historic Old Town Albuquerque and the world-renowned premier ballooning event.  Each year, the first week of October brings the magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing through the air. Hear the thrilling roar of hundreds of burners simultaneously igniting, turning the Balloon Fiesta Park into a remarkable site with hundreds of thousands of smiling, upturned faces, awestruck by the spectacular beauty of hot air balloons filling the big blue New Mexico sky. Enjoy hotel accommodations at the newly opened Hotel Chao and spend free time in Old Town Albuquerque, exploring museums, shops, and galleries. Sit front and center at the Chasers’ Club hospitality patio for two morning and evening sessions featuring Dawn Patrol and Evening Glow. This tour sold out in a week in 2017, so sign up early!

The Balloon Fiesta was featured on CBS's Sunday Morning show. See the article regarding the feature at
