About Balloon Adventures Emirates
So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the center of Dubai! (Burj Khalifa) We collect you from your hotel within the urban area of Dubai or a specified meeting point and transfer you to the desert, where you'll enjoy an approximately 1 hour flight. Fly with falcons as you watch a world-first demonstration from the balloon 3000ft in the air and watch these magnificent creatures soar around the balloon. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down, you will be transferred to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

Our 4 grandchildren and their grandparents had a mind-blowing experience at sunrise over the desert, with Capt. Vytautas as our pilot. The extreme professionalism, attention to detail, well-oiled organization of all was amazing. 5 stars are not enough for such magic. We know we will all remember and cherish those moments for the rest of our lives. I would be at a loss to find a way to improve that fantastic experience. Many, many thanks to the staff for being so kind, so dedicated to the well-being of their guests.

This was a world class trip with every detail taken care of. We were picked up in luxury SUV on time by a very friendly and knowledgeable driver who took us to the take off site. After some coffee we had a drone show which may sound a bit lane but it was mesmerising. This followed by a thorough safety briefing and then watching the balloons inflate. It was very clear these guys knew what they were doing and instilled total confidence. The kit looked new and well maintained. We had an hour on the air which was stunning and not scary at all. Following a memorable landing we were transported in old school land rovers to a Bedouin camp where we had a fantastic breakfast and could also ride a camel and learn about the conservation park. The old adage is you pay for what you get . This was not cheap but tremendous value for money given the day and experience. Above all these guys took care of us and ensured we all had a safe trip.

Had a wonderful time, our driver Ronald was super friendly and fun a great guy. The drone show before sunrise was a surprise bonus as it wasn’t mentioned on the trip’s description. The balloon ride was amazing though wished it was a little longer (30 mnts maybe), had a little issue with the balloon’s ropes before take off but our pilot sort it out and we eventually took off safely. The rover ride was fun and bumpy and the breakfast was good. It was a fun great experience overall.
