There is no better way to see the pyramids, honestly. We had a private balloon over sunrise and it couldn't have been any more perfect.

I took this flight, as I had in Turkey, in 2012. It was not the same experience. You must remember that flights in a balloon are determined by the direction of the wind. This is why the flights are early in the morning when, probably, the only influence on the flight is the earth’s rotation. Thus, the balloons leave an... More
