We had an amazing time! An absolute must do for those visiting Marrakech. The whole trip was managed perfectly and we were so well looked after. The pilot is fantastic and has a great sense of humour! We loved the berber breakfast and camel ride too. Worth every penny :)

I travelled to Marrakech together with two friends, and the hot air balloon ride with Marrakech By Air was definitely the best experience we had. We were picked up at our Riad on schedule, taken to the desert to have a quick cup of coffee before the fligth. The pilot was fun and knowledgeable, the views of the desert, the... More

We took the balloon two days ago with my partner and 5 years old. They picked us up on time in a 4x4 and took us on a 30 minutes drive outside of Marrakech. After watching the inflation process and grabbing a croissant and a cup of coffee, we hit the air! The captain was very friendly and has a... More

What a wonderful professional organisation. We were picked up at our hotel promptly and taken to a pit stop for refreshment and croissants before embarking on our ride. We had the pleasure of watching the balloon fill before taking us to dizzy heights. The captain was fantastic at his job and put everyone at ease by telling jokes and generally... More

I was very unsure about taking a hot air balloon ride, but it was fantastic. We got as high as apx 2,500 feet and it was so quiet, so smooth and we felt no wind. At certain elevations, there was no wind and it was like we parked in mid air. I had no trepidation about leaning over the edge... More

As others have said it's a wonderful trip. We were picked up on time from our hotel, our journey time out to the Berber village was around an hour as we were the first people collected. The driver was friendly and a very courteous and safe driver. When we arrived in the Berber village we were given pastries, coffee, tea,... More

Flying in a hot air balloon has been one of my wishes, when I attempted one in Aswan, Egypt, I wasn't eligible coz I had a young son then. So I stayed with him on land and watched my family in the air in a very nice view. So this was another opportunity for ME to actually FLY, not just... More

The review before mine sums it up. My only disappointment was, that I thought we were going to get a bit closer to the Atlas Mountains as suggested. Obviously, its Morocco, so there is nothing to see, but the whole experience of the hot air balloon met my expectations. I am glad we booked with Viator. I now have the... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Marrakech and was for a friends birthday treat. We were picked up at our Riad at 5am and driven in a Land Rover down bumpy roads in the dark to a little tented camp where we were offered coffee/tea and croissants. We then moved to the launch site, the balloon was set... More

The pick up was right on time - lovely small breakfast on arrival before we set up in the air with a brilliant pilot - I was scared and he made me feel at ease! Then, a lovely lunch followed by a camel ride - really lovely morning and the staff were amazing - a Marrakech must!
