At 3:45 am we were picked by van to boat . Then went to other side of Nile and again get on another van to balloons. There are several companies for hot balloon air . The red ones were belong to magic horizon . It was great experience to see temples from the top. 16 persons in each balloon .... More

It was a great smooth experience and my wife and myself enjoyed every minute of it. Good value as we were one of the first balloons into the air but the last to finish having well over an hour in the air. The captain was very informative about what we could see and turned the balloon around regularly making sure... More

My husband and I have done the balloon ride before with our children but have never done it together so decided to treat ourselves. We booked through an agent with magic horizon and were not disappointed. Well worth the 4 am start. Excellent experience from start to finish. Would definitely recommend captain Bob and his crew. They all showed true... More

My wife and parents did this and we all loved it! It'll be an early start (depending on where your hotel is, 2-3 AM). We were on the east side of the Nile, so we had to take a car, to a boat (on which they provided food), and then drive to the launch site. You'll get there in time... More

Not as good as expected. It could be a lot better if going over Valley of the Kings which is right next to the site. Going over the slums and city is pointless and waste of money. $100 per person is not worth it.

For 4 years my wife wanted to do a hot air balloon ride in Luxor at dawn. Well it finally came true last month. We were traveling with our 4 month old son and weren't sure if we could go with him. My wife and I had decided if they said no I would stay on the ground with him... More

The hot air balloon ride itself was spectacular. We were picked up at our hotel in a van around 4AM and then took a boat over the Nile to join a caravan escorted by local police to the balloons. We were one of the few balloons to make it up before the sun rise. We enjoyed viewing all the sights... More

Dear Jayse, we thank you for your feedback... Ballooning is a great experience in itself and if you add the emotion of seeing thousand of years of history going by under your feet and that of seeing the first sunrays illuminating the dark, while flying, (the desert, the river...) it does become a unique experience. It was good of you... More

The 4am wake up call is hard but it's so worth it! Please do yourself a favor and experience this. It's the best $100 spent in Egypt.
