          One from the bucket list
          Excellent trip - you are picked up (early), taken into the desert for an awesome experience watching the sun rise and the other balloons float around, taken back for a banquet of a breakfast and then back to your hotel. Good communication from the driver re pick up and smoothly operated. Expensive but very worth it!

          Must be done
          Awesome from start to finish, the journey in the bus to the desert was smooth and our driver was so lovely. Otman our pilot was excellent so calming and made everyone feel safe. The experience was surreal no noise only the firing of the balloon, it felt as though we were gliding. Then watching the sunrise over the atlas mountains was breathtaking. After landing we had a beautiful Moroccan breakfast and it was more special as it was my friend Sues special birthday, the staff fetched a cake and made a fuss of her. It's a definite to put on your bucket list, just do it get it booked. TJ till next time 👍

          Dream Come True
          Cannot recommend this experience enough. Excellently organised, with constant communication from organisers and our pick up driver in the run up to the event. Bad weather meant our first excursion had to be rearranged (though we still got given an absolute feast for breakfast before returning). We were given the option of a full refund had we not wanted to rearrange but as the weather looked more hopeful, we tried again. It could not have been a more perfect experience. The staff were wonderful, so much fun; just a genuinely happy bunch. Our pilot was great, very knowledgeable with an excellent flying playlist! And the breakfast afterwards was just as god the second time round. The whole experience was absolutely perfect.

          Drone Video Footage and Photo’s We decided to pay for the Drone Video and Photographs of our trip. It was such an amazing experience being up in the balloon that we had to capture the moment and what a great way to do it. We are delighted with the video and photographs, they have been done to a very high standard and we have captured wonderful memories. Highly recommend the team.

          Absolutely amazing, very professional in every way. Good communication, pick up on time as agreed, good driver and the balloon experience was incredible. We were all so amazed. A once in a lifetime experience. The pilot was also clearly very professional which was very reassuring. We all loved it and we have no hesitation in recommending that you book this!

          A Brilliant Experience
          We had a balloon ride for our 30th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were collected from our hotel on time and driven for about 30 minutes to the balloon site. The staff were very friendly and the pilot was very informative. The only downer for us was that we had a group of noisy Israeli-Moroccans on board who didn't seem to appreciate the peace and quiet. Be aware that the balloon carries 12 passengers plus the pilot, so if you want a more intimate experience you will pay a lot for it. Having flown for about 50 minutes we were driven back to the take off site nad treated to the most gorgeous breakfast of eggs, pastries and the most fresh and sweet fruits. The company were brilliant and I recommend them to future flyers.

          Vol en Montgolfière au dessus de Marrakech avec petit déjeuner traditionnel
          So from where do I begin??? An amazing experience. Starting by the pick up from the hotel which was on time to the sweet welcome on place with hot beverages and cake. We got offered blankets while waiting for the preparation of the balloon. Then we went over safety instructions before getting on board. The ride was phenomenal. It lasted 50-60 minutes. Thank you the pilots Mostapha and Khalid who were nice, explained every single detail and handled everything smoothly. The sunrise and landscapes were breathtaking and the landing was flawless. We were then welcomed with a traditionnal moroccan breakfast. We went back with beautiful memories, good energy and flight certificates. A big thank you to the whole team and a special mention to Rachid who was amazing from the beginning to the last minute of this experience.

          Fantastic experience
          What a way to celebrate my 50th birthday. Collected on time by Mostafa who kept us entertained on the journey to and from the balloon. Welcomed into the tent with mint tea, croissants and a blanket to keep us warm. A short briefing from Mahmud and then we watched as the balloon was blown up. Once safely in the basket we were up, up, up and away. So beautiful to watch the sun rise. Very peaceful and relaxing. We were able to join in the celebrations of a lovely French couple who got engaged on board! Afterwards we had a delicious Berber breakfast of tea, breads, eggs, honey and fruit. All those working today were lovely, friendly, professional and welcoming. Overall it was a wonderful experience which I fully recommend. Don't miss out. Book it 😀

          Fantastic experience
          What an amazing day! I would say this is a must when you visit Marrakech. We had never done a balloon ride before so was a bit nervous but there was no need to be. All the staff were wonderful. To see the sun rise over the Atlas mountains was beautiful. We felt safe throughout and was a very smooth ride. We climbed to 4,200 feet and watched several other balloons as well. After a very controlled landing we were treated to a wonderful Berber breakfast before we were transported back to our raid. Many thanks to all the staff for a wonderful day.

        I booked the balloon flight to celebrate my 50th birthday, and I am so glad I did. It was very well organised, from the early morning pick up, to the welcome with mint tea and croissants, the extraordinary flight, and traditional breakfast afterwards. All the staff involved were friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed chatting with the Captain after the flight and hearing all about the other countries he'd flown in. As for the flight itself, I am not a fan of planes, but this was completely different and I had no fear. We were hardly aware we were taking off, and were soon calmly rising up above the fields and villages, with panoramic views of the sun rising over the mountains. We saw other balloons flying at different heights and this made for some beautiful photos. I never expected any birthday fuss, but when the Captain found out, cakes and candles were produced and the group sang happy birthday, which made it all even more special for me.

        This is a remarkable experience and one I will never forget. Thank you Captain Mahmoud and good luck with your next country!

        Moustapha was an exceptional tour guide. He sent messages to confirm tour and pick up time, was very informative, and funny! Muhammed was the best pilot too. His serious demeanor in the beginning emphasized his importance of safety that then transitioned into a very personable pilot. The breakfast spread was amazing!

        Early morning hotel pick up was prompt and the ride to pick up other travelers was entertaining. Our guide Mufasa (real name Mostafa) kept the mood light, joyful, and humorous. Upon arrival at the launch site travelers were served a light meal of cake and tea. Waiting around was minimum as balloons were inflated and groups escorted and loaded. Once off the ground, the sun begin to rise and we could see several balloons in the horizon. The flight was smooth and a great experience. After landing we were brought back to launch site for traditional breakfast then returned to our hotels. Later the same day, all travelers received pics and videos taken by staff and sent via WhatsApp. Mostafa was a great guide and suggested great places to eat and shop in Marrakech. From start to finish this experience was awesome and I highly recommend.

        I booked the hot air balloon for my friend’s birthday. Upon my first enquiry Ben (the manager) communicated through whatsapp which made everything extremely easy.

        From the morning of pick up I knew I was going to be in for a treat. When our driver Mostafa introduced himself, I knew we would get on famously. His wonderful sense of humour kept everyone on their toes, and everyone was laughing until the point we were dropped off to the site.

        When we arrived, we were treated to tea and cake and were able to use the toilets (extremely clean) From here we were loaded into the balloon basket. This is where the fun really began as for me to get in was extremely undignified but again we all laughed.

        Soon we were up in the sky and its like no other experience I have ever encountered. Its so peaceful and quiet up in the air. It all felt very surreal and very calming. The weather wasn’t in our favour entirely as was a little windy, so we were unable to go above the clouds or see the sunset. This didn’t dampen our experience any and everyone on board had a wonderful time.

        Before we knew it, we landed, and our taxi man was there waiting for us. We then disembarked a couple at a time so the next lot of people could get on. This was all handled extremely professionally as they have to keep the weight at a certain level, so it doesn’t overturn etc.

        Once we were all out safely and back in the taxi we went back to base where a delicious Moroccan breakfast was served. From here we were presented with a certificate then driven back to our hotels.

        The entire process from booking up until we were safely delivered back to our hotel was seamless. This is a wonderful experience that I feel everyone would love. I seriously couldn’t recommend this company enough.

        @Ben: if you read this THANKS for making such wonderful memories for myself and my friend. You have some wonderful staff working for you who were all extremely friendly and professional. Special thanks definitely goes out to our driver Mostafa. This man literally made our entire experience, and I haven’t laughed so much in ages. He is a massive asset to your company, and I will treasure these memories forever.
        Many thanks again,

        We had a fantastic time on this flight. Details for our pickup were sent by WhatsApp the previous evening. Our driver Rachid picked us up from our hotel and took us around a half an hour drive to the village where our balloon would take off from. After a croissant and coffee we were given a safety briefing. The pilot was reassuringly serious and from take off to landing we felt safe at all times. Our flight had only 8 passengers so was not at all crowded. We had fantastic views over the Atlas mountains and surrounding countryside. After landing we sat down for a delicious and very generous traditional Moroccan breakfast. Mostafa and Rachid also sent us photos and videos of the take off from ground level which were excellent to add to our own of the day. Highly recommended.

        To keep it short: it was an amazing experiece for us!

        Ahmed, our super friendly driver picked us up on time and drove us to the spot where the balloon took of. As soon as we arrived we got tea, coffee and croissants and blankets to keep us warm.
        After short and funny safty instructions of our pilot we could watch the guys getting the balloon ready. The take-off which was supposed to be a bit scary, was calm and from one moment to the other we were flying over Morocco. We saw the sunrise over the Atlas mountains and had a great view over the area. The landing was surprisingly smooth, and as soon as we touched the ground the staff welcomed us again.
        After we got our flight certificates from out pilot we drove back to where we started and had a wonderful morrokan breakfast with a friendly host.
        We got a ride back to the hotel we stayed in and memories we wont forget.

        The whole organization was perfect, the pick-up wss on time, switching the day of the trip (some days in advance) was no problem.

        I really can recommend this trip with Marrakech Dream Balloning

        Loved this trip. It was an amazing experience & watching the sunset was a special sight to see. The pick up from hotel was great - my son loved the drive in a defender. We were collected at 4.30 am which is early and even as someone who is not a morning person, I’d still recommend the 6am trip for the sunrise. The early pick up was worth it. Our driver was great & talked through a lot of history, sites & facts about the areas we drove through. The balloon ride itself was so good. I was worried my son who’s 8 would be scared of the height but he was absolutely fine & enjoyed it. Our pilot Mustafa was brilliant. Very calm & professional which gave confidence to any nervous passengers. Answered a lot of questions & knowledgeable. The flight itself was very smooth & our pilot made sure we could all see the sunrise which was a humbling thing to see. Breakfast was really nice also. Overall the trip from beginning to end was very well managed & professional. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering it.

        As it was our first visit to Morocco coupled with our first time ballooning, we did have our concerns not knowing what to expect. However from the moment Ahmed picked us up from our hotel our concerns gradually vanished.
        The hospitality was amazing and was probably the best we had experienced in our 11 days in Morocco. We felt safe in the hands of Mahmoud, the experienced pilot, who ensured a smooth ride. The balloon ride itself at dawn was just breathtaking, floating in the air watching the sunrise, the Atlas Mountains and the terrain below. When we reached terra firma we were offered a traditional breakfast fit for a king. It was a great start to the day!
        A truly professional operation with genuine hospitality. We highly recommend Marrakesh Dream Ballooning!

        We had an amazing time with the staff at Marrakech Dream Ballooning. We went for a sunrise hot air balloon trip and were all a little nervous, as it was our first flight in a hot air balloon. However, our pilot Mustafa quickly lightened our mood with some funny jokes and masterfully and smoothly gave us a once in a lifetime ride. Not only that, but after the softest landing, we were treated to a delicious traditional breakfast of fruits and breads. A breathtaking view, paired with an awesome sunrise, and a delicious Moroccan breakfast made this trip worth every penny.

        Such a beautiful way to start the day! An amazing experience that I would definitely recommend.
        Was collected promptly from outside our hotel at 6:15 in the morning and went to collect some other guests. It took around 40 minutes to get to our destination.
        We were greeted with mint tea/coffee and cake and enjoyed them inside a tent whilst we waited for the balloons to be ready.
        It was pretty cold at this time of the morning and especially at this time of year so definitely recommend wearing some warm clothing. Once the balloons were ready we hopped in, our balloon held 16 people whilst the others held 22 and a private balloon for 2.
        Our pilot was amazing! So funny and friendly, he ascended to 1000m and turned the balloon around so everyone could get a good view/ pictures of the sun rising which was around 8:15.
        We spent 45 mins in the air and then descended slowly. It was such a relaxing experience even though I’m not a fan of heights.
        After landing, transportation drove us back to the tent where we then ate a delicious breakfast which consisted of various pancakes, bread, fresh fruits, olives, tomatoes boiled eggs and more tea and water.
        You can purchase a video of the experience once there for £32, we had no MAD on us but they accepted GBP and Euro and offered to drive us to the cashpoint too.
        It was an early start but watching the sun rise that high up was magical.
