First time to do this activity! Staff was very professional and at no time did we feel our safety was compromised. Pick up was at specified time and our driver friendly but courteous and informative. We did only the sunrise balloon ride and the experience was did not disappoint. A few things: we waited quite some time to board which was not comfortable so perhaps shorter wait time. We also had a very full basket - maybe 20 people - and felt it was a bit cramped, no room to move. The pilot did however do a nice job of adjusting the flight to allow for varied views. Besides the sunrise, we did see mountains, dunes, camels, greenery and an antelope so it was overall a pleasant adventure.

Floating at 4000 feet on a hot air balloon and witnessing sunrise is must on bucket list for adventure seekers nature lovers. Sindbad LLC ensures you have a marvelous experience. Very courteous staff Ibrahim took care of us right from camp to the balloon and back to ground. Not to forget the humorous pilot Basheer, he is one fantastic person.
We reached the take-off at 6:00 am, served with coffee, water & tea and then we had a safety briefing. We were all set for our maiden flight, as the balloon lifted from ground we started experiencing the man’s creation vs nature’s marvel - balloons lifting in the backdrop of beautiful sand dunes. As we started cruising at 4000 ft, our supremo “the sun” popped up from the clouds, what an amazing sight it was! After a 40 mins of awe we started our descend, the landed with 3 bump smooth landing. As we drove back home no one was speaking as we were just reliving that experience.

Thank you Ibrahim, Basheer and Sindbad LLC

The communication over WhatsApp as to time and driver was clear and car to take us out to the desert where we would take our balloon trip arrived at the exact appointment time (04.20). The briefing was very professional with trained pilots and the takeoff made easy once we had watched our balloon inflated. The experience was beautiful…. Floating above the desert with only the occasional sound of the air being pumped into the balloon by our pilot was magical. Silent, serene and calming. After about 40 mins we floated toward the ground and the landing ( clearly dangerous based on the briefing) was smooth with barely a bump.
Breakfast is basic (but many people clearly hungry after the early start so appreciated). My niece held the falcon and I rode on the camel ( a bird ride)… nice to do but the balloon trip was all that we really needed.
The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout.
Thank you to all for a special morning to all at Sinbad and to our driver, Wasaq, and also for the pics Mr Ibrahim.

Don’t trust this company Liars their web site says “fly with us” that means they have their own Baloons and they don’t they put us on Sinbad Baloons ( we only find this out 10 minutes before the balloon flight because the waiver does not have their name on it the waiver says Sinbad ) without telling us total misrepresentation . We did not want to fly Sinbad we had read in advance not such great reviews with the. but we did anyway ( what do you do when you book 8 months in advance and you get up at 4am 1 hour drive and 10 minutes before you discover this) and had a not so great experience in the end ( I feel they flew when they knew conditions were not “ideal “ putting out family at risk and in the end our balloon had a very hard and traumatic landing. After our flight I spent 3 hours in what’s app messages I’m with cappadocia trying to understand why I was put on Sinbad. Baloons I still don’t completely understand why and they were just wasting my time. DONT book cappadocia. they are totally misrepresent that they own and fly Baloons of their own but my experience they put me on Sinbad Baloons.

The best part of the whole tour and activities was as a customer we received what we had asked for and then some. These are a bunch of great people, from the manager Ibrahim, to Mamdiuh in office, to Captain Mohammed or our driver, who did a thoroug hly professional job while maintaining minimal stress and retaining humor in the environment. Watching the sunrise was simplymiraculous. There is no doubt that we are going back with Ibrahim and Co. the very first opportunity we get!

The morning trip with hot air ballooning and breakfast with camel riding was fantastic. It was easy to contact the company for pickup time. We all met in a location in the dessert via multiple SUVs and had tea. The pilots gave us information about the hot air ballooning and were extremely professional and made us feel safe. We watched the balloons get blown up and then off we went. It was an out of this world experience up there watching sunrise. After came down we went for breakfast, camel riding and holding a falcon. These were fun experiences as well but not very long. Overall I would highly recommend this experience.

It has been a pleasant experience flying with Sinbad Balloons. Great service from all ground staffs and sky team.

I’d like to mention a few good points:

•Take off was on schedule and smooth
•Briefing on safety pre and post landing
•3 pilots on board working hand in hand

Check them out once you’re in Dubai! Thank me later! 😊

We had a great experience with Sindbad! The company reached out in advance to collect all the necessary info and arrange a pickup. Mr Ibrahim picked us up on time and drove safely to the location. We had some refreshments and the pilots explained all about the flight. The flight itself was beautiful and the pilot kindly answered all our questions. As we landed, the car was already waiting for us and drove us home. Thank you very much, I definitely recommend!
