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

My family (wife & 13 year old daughter) had a great experience floating above the archeological sites at Luxor. Breathtaking & remarkable. In the capable hands of the balloon captain, we felt very safe and at ease - I hope to return and do it again! Kudos to all the team from Magic Horizons!!! This was the highlight of my... More

This is an excellent way to see the west bank ancient monuments and the village life at sunrise. Ahmed and his crew were brilliant. We felt very safe during the entire experience.

What a wonderful trip we had, great views of Luxor the Nile, and the antiquities, we felt totally safe and would recommend this company. It was the highlight of our Nile cruise. Our first Nile cruise, our first balloon trip and the whole experience was out of this world.

Our balloon flight in November 2012 was organised through the excursion people on our Nile Cruise boat, and as we had never done a hot air balloon flight before it seemed the perfect time and place to do one...and we were so glad we did, as it turned out to be the highlight of our holiday. OK, so it was... More

I took my husband on a hot air balloon ride with Magic Horizon as a surprise anniversary present and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Not only was the view beautiful but our pilot was lots of fun. We highly recommend them to everyone!

The recent downturn in tourism has badly affected all tour operators in Egypt. Especially hot air balloon operators because of the fatal incident a year or so ago. My tour operator in Australia would not handle my flight booking as there are still some insurance details to iron out before they can promote ballooning. I had to book direct with... More
