The balloon ride with Sindbad was great fun in itself. The ride provided great views of the west bank sites and of village life in action. The personalised service provided to and from the hotel was first class and also the attention to safety requirements. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Luxor.

I had a great time flying with Sindbad hot air balloon rides, the pilot was a polished professional who handled the balloon safely. It's an early start, 4:30 in the morning pick-up. That's isn't a problem, the call to prayer sounds throughout the whole city at 4:00 AM and it that doesn't wake you up then its because you had a few to many the night before. The ride and the price for the ride was top notch, everything went smooth and was enjoyable throughout the whole journey.
On another note, Egypt is completely a safe destination to visit, I've been here for 2 weeks, even spent 3 days in Cairo. During my entire visit there wasn't a moment that I felt concern for my safety, I think the new media is making a mountain out of a mole pile, again Egypt is safe.

Had a wonderful time flying with Sindbad in Luxor. We were picked up/dropped back to our hotel; staff were very friendly & helpful; and flight was awesome. Don't think you'd get a trip like this much cheaper anywhere else in the world. Looking forward to watching the DVD when we get home :) Thanks guys!
