Overall it was great and neat to see Luxor from high up, but I would recommend booking this yourself rather than through your guide. Our guide initially quoted the price at $100USD/person but then dropped it down to $70USD/person. Since we were booking this last minute, we didn't really have a chance to check the price ourselves. Come to find... More

What an amazing experience! As the other reviewers have stated, it is an early pick up (0430 hrs) but everything was right on time and we didn't wait anywhere. The boat trip was lovely and the tea appreciated! So surreal to walk with our children over to our balloon which was lit inside with fire. Stunning! Tourism is still down,... More

I will always remember hovering above an Egyptian village and watching while the village awakened. First the roosters crowed, then the donkeys brayed, and finally the parents and children awoke to do their chores. Silently we watched, mesmerized, while Ahmed expertly piloted the balloon. A once in a lifetime experience in Luxor that you should not miss.

Highly reccommend doing a baloon flight whilst in Luxor. So much cheaper than doing it elsewhere and hardly ever cancelled due to weather. Whole experience was extremely well organised and refreshingly baksheesh free. Booked direct with them. For the best deals make sure you say you are an independent traveller not on a tour.

Just got back from our Egyptian holiday and wanted to say we enjoyed our Alaska Hot Air Balloon flight Captained by Ahmed Mahmohd. He guided us over the west bank of the nile near the valley of the kings, hatshepsut, valley of queens and a few other temples. Although I would tell you I do not like heights the ride... More

We were picked up at 6 am from our cruiseboat. On the way across the Nile the "paperwork" was done while we had coffee and tea. As we arrived the "airport" our balloon was ready to get filled with hot air, so we could watch that process We were 16 people in the big basket, which I would say was... More

We went up with Alaska last week. One of many companies now operating dawn balloons over the West Bank sites. We paid 260LE each which seems a fair price for the experience. The down side is that you are picked up very early (4.50 am) and taken to a boat where we sat for over a hour getting quite cold... More
