Float above the landscape and enjoy watching the sunrise. This was a breathtaking experience and well worth every penny paid. They crew was very safe and pointed out spots below as we floated by them. I could highly recommend seeing Egypt from a balloon. It was our first time ballooning and we loved every second!

What a way to start the day. As you watch the sun rise over the Nile and the Valley of the Kings you get an idea just how large an area the Valley of the Kings is. The view at 1500 feet is just amazing. The balloon basket had several compartments for passengers and fit four people in a compartment... More

The ride was very enjoyable and safe with a soft landing. The pilot-was very experience- has explained everything in details to feel safe, before the ride and what are we looking at while we were up there . The crew was very helpful specially that I'm travelling with my mother (60 years) and two kids (5,2 years)

Breathtaking view from above & lovely way to see people and their way of life in the morning...friendly villagers waving, saying 'hello' with big smile as we floated just above the ground....it's just...

This was an unreal hot air ballon ride. The ride was incredibly smooth with a soft landing. Everything was explained before takeoff in clear detail and the pilot was very experienced (had commercial and private flights licenses from the U.S. and UK). For the actual ride we were higher than all the other balloons in the sky which gave us... More

Been dying to check this off my bucket list for YEARS and can say that doing it in Egypt was better than anywhere else imagined. We left our hotel VERY early in the morning. Since we were on the East Bank, we had to take a boat to go across. The captain of the hot air balloon was awesome! He... More

In 2008 after a Nile cruise, I thought I would take a hot air balloon ride. We left the hotel at 5am on a bus to the river where we caught a boat to go across, then bused to the hot air balloons location. I was feeling very nervous in what to expect but the Captain and the Navigator reassured... More
