“Short vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Folks, it was mind boggling and fantastic ride which was organised by Capt.Hamid, very professional where the captain proved him self by landing the hot air baloon base at the trailer which is 2 x 4 Mtr (wow). I bet, no one in this world will dare to do such a safe and highly professional landing. And the whole flight was filled with full of funny jokes and mouthful of laughs by Capt.Hamid. and very reasonable rates which includes pick up and drop to the hotel by 4 x 4 car ,delicious berber breakfast along with berber hospitality in the middle of sahara (wow) and d courageous camel ride approximately one hour where you can experience the beautiful site seeings. My conclutions, just go for it and say thanks to me for my motivation for takeing such baloon ride. Ciaaoo. By Mohammed Gulshan from India / UAE.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Amazing staff and amazing experience. Our pilot was absolutely hysterical from the minute he picked us up in the early morning from our riads to the minute he landed us on the ground again. I really enjoyed my time with him and Mustafa, another person on the staff, as much as the actual balloon ride. Being able to see the sunrise was gorgeous and breathtaking and we had a very enjoyable flight. Afterwards we had a very nice breakfast at a Berber house and got a little tour of the surroundings. From there was a trip to ride camels, which was kind of short and unexciting after the balloon ride, but an added plus as most other companies didn't offer this yet still cost the same price. I would highly recommend using Marrakech by Air if you are planning a balloon ride while in Morocco.

“Ballooning In Marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This was a last minute find and we were so glad we did find it, what an experience! Everything was very carefully worked out for us, the staff were so friendly and very amusing! ballooning was a first for both myself and my daughter and we couldn't have picked a better place to try it. We were picked up quite early outside our hotel and taken on quite a hairey but amusing drive to the starting point where we were given delicious croissants while we watched the balloon being prepared. Then into the basket for an amazing journey through the air followed by a perfect landing. We all went back to the tent then for a full Moroccan breakfast before setting off to find our camels for a ride through the Palmeries. An experience we will never forget.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Superb experience from the moment we were picked up from our hotel. My wife had originally booked to follow in the support vehicle as she is afraid of flying but after watching part of the flight, she was persuaded by the extremely confident pilot to join the balloon. Amazing that she enjoyed it tremendously.
Probably the best place and the best pilot anywhere to try a balloon flight!

“Recommendable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We had a wonderful morning with Marrakech By Air. The activities were well-planned and even though external circumstances made us miss the sunrise, we had a great experience. The crew was great and entertaining, and they definitely know what they are doing, making the balloon flight feel very safe. The breakfast was outstanding. The dromedary ride was a bit corny but a fun way to end the morning.
