I was unsure about this given that we would be part of a big group of people, but having gone through with it, I would absolutely recommend this adventure to anyone headed to Dubai. The trip went perfectly and we had incredible desert views on a perfectly still day. As many have stated, Capt. Mike knows his business and is... More

I’ve had a hot air balloon ride on my bucket list as long as I can remember, and this experience definitively lived up to my expectations. Amazing view of the desert, camels and gazelles – and the sunrise was beautiful. Everything felt safe all the way, and Captain Mike was very professional as well as entertaining. If you want a...

Flying a hot air balloon is one of the most exclusive, fun and mind blowing thing you can do. Then think about doing it over the desert dunes while the sun rises, setting the amazing landscape on golden fire. This is real value for money. It's about an hour flight, first going high, then soaring over the sandunes. I gor... More

It was wonderful experience - my first time on a Hot Air Balloon. Balloon Adventures Emirates are very professional - pick up at the correct time at the hotel, smooth journey to the launch site, easy boarding and lifting off, breathtaking sights, enjoyable commentary along the way and a smooth (though bumpy) riding. No complaints at all. And to top... More

I was waiting in the lobby if the hotel for being picked up and the bus driver just left us there without taking the time to meet us. We were left and abandoned after making a long journey to Dubai for this terrible experience. When we noticed nobody was going to take us we called and they refused to take... More

We usually get praises for being on time and punctual, so this is extremely unusual for us. Difficult to say what has happened. Our drivers are very professional and they always keep to their times. They have to be exact and the pick up times have to be kept, they cannot wait otherwise there will be problems later on. We... More

Well what can I say? This was a totally out of the world experience in short! We booked balloon adventures for our 1st anniversary and I don't regret it a bit. We were advised to arrive in front of the open parking space at festival city and a bus would come to pick us up. We were picked up by... More
