We can't imagine a better way to start off our first trip to Morocco. Mustafa picked us up bright and early, but it was totally worth it! We all gathered for some pre-flight coffee and croissants, while watching Hamid and his crew set up our balloon. Soon we all hopped into the basket and we were off! Hamid was the utmost professional but could easily be a stand-up comedian. In between the in-flight entertainment, we had a great time learning about the local Berber communities and the city of Marrakech, the technical details of how hot air ballooning works, and all the while enjoying the gorgeous sunrise over the Atlas mountains. After a fabulous breakfast we stopped off for a quick camel ride and were back to our hotel before lunch. We highly recommend Marrakech by Air as a great way to see the beautiful country of Morocco.
