Absolutely incredible experience, I genuinely couldn't fault a single thing! Our first booking was cancelled sadly due to high winds but the staff were amazing at getting us rebooked for a couple of days later and ensured we were still about to go, they even remembered our names when we went back 2 days later! Our pilot was amazing, chatting and making sure she took some great pictures of us throughout the flight. Watching the sunrise and seeing all the other balloons around us was absolutely magical.
The breakfast afterwards was great and we were given plenty of food and tea served in a beautiful tent. The camel ride at the end was also great fun and a good added extra compared to other hot air balloon tours we saw that didn't include this.

It may seem quite expensive compared to other excursions in Marrakech but honestly it was worth every penny. Everyone should experience this once in a lifetime trip whilst here!

This is not an experience I'm soon to forget. This is easily worth the price that I paid because it will be something that I will always remember. My pickup at the specified location was without any problems and we arrived to the location where we were given coffee/tea and a snack while we waiting in the tent for the balloons to be ready. It was very cold out, but they had to fires outside to keep you warm. The actual, balloon ride with the sun rising over the mountains was breathtaking and something hard to explain without having seen it yourself. After we had an excellent Berber breakfast before heading back. Our entire car opted out of the camel ride, since we all had done before and so I can't speak to this part. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Marrakech area.

This was the highlight of my trip to Morocco by a mile.
At first I did not make my first booking with this group however after a little discussion and paying an extra small fee, I was able to rebook on to a different day and I am so glad I did. There was around 25 people on the day using three different balloons. Marina was our pilot and she was really good at her job. She made us feel so welcome throughout the whole day. We had a young lad (20ish) in our ballon who was afraid of heights. however he did not have an issues up there and actually loved it just as much as everyone else. The ride itself was unbelievable. Such amazing views of the sunrise over the mountains and the weather couldn't have been any better either. One of the best experiences I have ever done. You will not regret it.

The entire trip ran very smoothly from pick up at 0640 to being back at our Riad before midday.

The balloon ride was amazing, our pilot was hilarious and had all 16 of us in our balloon entertained up in the sky. The views are spectacular so we have great photos of the other balloons floating around us with the Atlas mountains as a backdrop whilst we flew over the Berber villages.

The traditional breakfast afterwards was great and good to sit with others and chat, the hot donuts were a hit as it was very chilly early morning however it's a lot warmer up in the air with the heat from the balloon!

After a short drive to the camel park we lined up for the ride which was good fun and they are the most lovely gentle creatures so it was great to stroke them and give them some attention which I'm not sure they receive much of poor things.

Definitely recommend the trip, a fantastic experience and one never to be forgotten!

I was worried a hot air balloon would be scary but it wasn't at all! A very special occasion for our first wedding anniversary.

Pickup is very early but it has to be to enjoy sunrise. Croissants and coffee were provided upon arrival (40ish min drive from the Medina) as we watched the balloons be inflated then got in. Approx 18. people per balloon basket.

Our pilot (and WhatsApp POC) was a legend- Hamid. Funny and charismatic and landed like a feather on the back of a trailer! Very impressive. Not once did we feel anxious about the flight. It was magical!

Beautiful views, of course, even though it was cloudy on our morning. Followed by a bread/egg/cake berber breakfast in a cute tent and a trip to a camel ride. Bumpy road! Real 4x4 driving. The camels were all well behaved and sitting on them is atop thick cushions so it's comfortable. You can even stand up if you dare!

The whole time we felt entirely safe, happy and excited. Definitely the best part of our holiday!

One of the best experiences I've ever had. From start to finish was seamless. They sent us a message the day before telling us when to be outside our hotel, Picked us up on time explained what was going to happen and delivered. The breakfast was delicious and the hot air balloon experience itself was exceptional. Camel ride was pretty cool too. For any nervous travellers, you don't need to be with these guys. What a well oiled machine! Would 100% recommend

Thank you for once in a lifetime opportunity!

A definite highlight of our trip to Marrakech and worth the early start. Do check with the company what time they collect you as our booking confirmation said 6am but when we messaged them the day before to agree a drop off point, they said 5am! Could so easily have missed it!
Gentle take off and landing and a really peaceful float over the desert lead by our Brazilian pilot, Lais.
Disappointed to see on my smartwatch that we were over the desert next to some hills in Bourrous to the northeast of Marrakech, and not actually over the Atlas mountains to the south as advertised.

This 5 hour trip run by a very efficient team, offers an experience beyond expectation. Although very cold this time of year, soon after arriving we forgot about that! I had no idea there would be another 11 balloons setting off at the same time. This was absolutely amazing seeing them all around the sky set against the Atlas Mountains and the sunrise. Very well mannered staff and brilliant humor along the way....highlight of our vacation for sure! Well done and thank you!

My group of 9 and I had an amazing experience with Marrakech by Air when we visited the city early February. The views from the hot air balloon at sunrise were breathtaking. Everyone we interacted with in the company had amazing senses of humor and calming presences as we floated off over the Atlas Mountains. I can not recommend this trip enough!

Great experience, expensive but worth it . 5.30am pick up , drive to a better tent for coffee and croissants, then around 45 minute flight , you have to climb into the basket , there are foot holes so not too hard . About 20 people in each basket , sounds a lot but the basket is in 4 sections . Sadly we didn't see the sunrise as it was so cloudy but still amazing . Piglet was great and we landed on a trailer, then you have to climb out but the guys are there to hp you , I'm 66 with dodgy knees so if I can do it anyone can . Back to the tent for breakfast , pancakes , bread , honey , boiled eggs , olives and tea . Then they give you a certificate with your name in Arabic . A must do .
