Marrakech by Air was a great way to break up our trip after we'd experienced the hustle and bustle of the square for a few days. We were picked up promptly by the friendly Mustafa and driven to watch the balloon being set up. A nice breakfast of croissants, pastries and coffee was ready upon our arrival and we tucked in as the sun started to come up. The balloon ride itself was very relaxing and a lot steadier than I expected! Hamid the pilot was as friendly as the other reviews suggest - he does a lot to make the flight fun and memorable. Unfortunately there was a fair bit of rain on the day, so the balloon couldn't go as high as Hamid wanted it too, meaning although the experience was fun...it could have been better.
After we had landed another group was ready to take the trip. Luckily for us the group were 2 short and we got selected at random (eenie meanie minie mo I believe was the strategy) to go up again for a free flight! The rain stopped and all turned out well :)
After the flight the berber breakfast is plentiful, the people really can't do enough for you. We finished off the tour with a camel ride through a nice little stretch of land and were then taken back to our hotel. Excellent service and a very professional team.
