Well worth the early morning rise for this trip, well organised, from pick up to drop off. Watching the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in a balloon is some what an experience, not to be missed in Marrakesh ! From breakfast to refreshments a 5 star experience.

Great staff, funny pilot, delicious breakfast. The balloons are only a 30' drive away from Marrakech.

Short but great and helpful feed-back. Yes, Airfield is about 30 minutes drive from Marrakech downtown, less is you are South (i.e. Palmeraie) and more if you are north (Ourika Valley or Amizmiz Road). More

I mean who wouldnt love a pink and purple sky radiating from the atlas as the sun comes up. This is a must do, but The ONLY reason i marked this down was because you just have to be prepared fir sharing the basket with annoyingly loud people. Unless you have enough to splash on a romantic basket for two,... More

Collected near our hotel at 6 am and transported in 4x4´s to the balloon site about an hour away. Superb organisation, absolutely brilliant morning and as the balloons were prepared we watched in awe. As the sun rose behind the Atlas mountains we rose steadily into the air on this spectacular flight. Drifting effortlessly across the permitted areas we could... More

What a experience, it was what I expected and much much more. The sunrise was unreal and was breathtaking. Not the cheapest trip to do but boy was it worth it, my fiancé had always wanted to do it and the smile it brought to her face was as breathtaking as the views !!!!!!

Booked from the UK for Sunday and was picked up at 5:30am by driver to take us out the launch site. No idea where we were as it was dark. Sadly there was too much wind for a safe take off today so after a breakfast we were taken back to our Riad. We changed the date to the following... More

We'd booked through expedia who use here as was cheaper than direct website with them, but the service and experience was fantastic. We were picked up on time, and early around 5:30 and did have a ride out of Marrakech. We got to see the balloon unpacked and set up which in itself is impressive, we went in a 16person... More
