Define life by the moments that take your breath away. This is definitely one of them. You are at the hands of the best hot air ballooning team in the world. To be above the golden desert of Dubai catching the sunrise, looking at wild camels running free is fulfilling a childhood fantasy, and a MUST on your bucket list.... More

I booked this around 6 months ago and the week before my flight they sent me a reminder email. They also called our hotel and told us the exact time of pick up which was 4:35am so a very early start! We drove an hour out of Dubai and sadly our experience was cancelled as it was too windy! Obviously... More

It is a very nice experience to be able to see the sunrise up in the desert area of Dubai. The feel of the wind on my face while the balloon is moving over the sand dunes and power lines is exhilarating. The pilot is very professional and we feel very safe.

It's a good activity to do in Dubai but expensive. You'll be treated with wonderful view of the desert and sunrise. You will have to wake up early though because the ride is started before the sunrise. Nice view of the desert and animals.

It was a truly an amazing experience! You do have to get up very early, which I didn't mind at all...how often does one get to see a sunrise from a hot air balloon in the Dubai Desert? Very organized, and the pilot was fun! He was able to point out all sorts of interesting things, from gazelle tracks in... More

It was an excellent flight. The pick up was ban on time. The pilot was very experienced and gave a thorough briefing including safety aspects. He kept giving good anecdotes throughout the flight.
