So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the centre 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 a one hour flight. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down, you will be transfered to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

I tried to make a booking for 2 pax on 22 Jan. The sales staff says the earliest date they have is 4 Feb for morning flight and ask me to book through their website. I tried multiple times (even show them my print screen for the payment error) but could not book online due to some payment error. They... More

I went solo as my husband and son were not too keen on the wee hours and height. During the booking process, queries were being responded to quickly. My pickup time was 5:35am from the Sheraton Grand Dubai - it was prompt and a safe drive to the take-off site. Beware though, the drive itself and the balloon ride is... More

We were never been fans of ballooning because of fear of safety and heights. When we decided to go ballooning we did some research and decided on this company, and it was a great decision . From start to finish, safety was priority. Peter , the captain , was strict with safety, funny with acid sense of humor . Communication... More
