They advised at once that I could not fly in July...TOO HOT...so July and August are not good times to fly....I have done 15 balloon flights and was so looking forward to this..but was NOT in the cards...so it means I must return in Oct Nov or Dec....very good excuse to return to this beautiful country

Best part of my trip to Marrakech! Our pilot and his staff members were very skilled and knowledgable. We had a terrific ride over the desert and then a wonderful breakfast in a Berber village. The camel ride topped it off. All of these were new experiences for us and it was just a great way to explore a different... More

A+ hot air ballooning experience. Hamid picked us up in his Land Rover Defender and made short work out of the road into the dessert for the early morning launch. I'm still rocking out to the souvenir CD he gave us en route. He is a great pilot and we felt safe all along. I only wish we had opted... More

Imagine seeing the sun rise over the Atlas Mountains to one side, and a full moon over the Marrakech skyline to the other!! A truly magical experience! Enjoyable from start to finish.....picked up on time from our riad in a comfortable 4 wheel drive. Laughing out loud at 5 o'clock in the morning is a rarity - but the staff... More

This was our first Hot Air Balloon experience and we absolutely loved it, we never wanted it to end. In short we highly recommend it!!! Our day started early and was picked up at our Hotel in Marrakesh right on time. Our driver Mustafa was very entertaining. We arrived at the take off site early. As they do two trips,... More

Nothing to dislike, Great balloon flight with Hamid (Pilot\Comedian). Hamid will keep you entertained and point out things of interest but the amazing views will last with me forever. Hamid even managed to land the balloon in the back of the trailer. We started off with coffee and croissant before the flight, Then off for a Berber breakfast after the... More

This visit has made our holiday. The attentive, friendly and humorous staff made this activity a "must do" trip. They showed us many sights, answered many questions an more importantly provided us with many laughs along the way. The views of the Atlas Mountains were simply spectacular with us able to watch the sun rise over Marrakech, a sight many... More

If you can you really must see the sunrise over the Atlas mountains from the peace and tranquillity of a hot air balloon. Hamid, the pilot, is very charismatic and good-humoured and absolutely makes the experience what it is. To say any more would be to give too much away...! Also included is pre-flight coffee and croissant and a fantastic... More
