Owner description: 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.

“Memories for a lifetime.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Wonderful experience! Very professional, experienced team. Safety came first with good briefings before and during the flight.
We had a great flight with amazing, stunning views of the desert landscape.
Sights you will only see from the sky, we flew between 1000m and even down to 2m above the sand dunes.

Will do it again on a next visit to Dubai.

Very well organized and on point! Cap Atila and crew have it figured out. If you want to see a different Dubai from up and above, this is a must on your to-do list.

We agree, if you are looking for something different to do, then come and try ballooning. It really is a different way to see the gorgeous desert landscape. So happy to hear you loved your flight.
Thanks for the recommendation!

“Professional, well organized, the best adventure I had in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

What a fantastic experience! I am a little scared of heights but felt totally safe in Captain Mikes basket. The tour was well organized, we were picked on time and once we arrived at the site it was all systems go...no standing around waiting which was great. The weather was perfect! I had done a desert safari and dhow tour, but this was by far the best. What an exhilarating, fun, scenic way to spend your morning. We ordered the video and we received it promptly, it is worth getting. This is a must do for any tourist...you won't be disappointed!

Good on you for giving ballooning a go! Lots of our passengers are uncomfortable with heights, but going up in the balloon is a great way to lessen it, a bit like therapy. Probably because it's such a smooth and gentle experience when we ascend.
Everything sounds as if it went smoothly in the morning which is what we aim for.
Thanks for the recommendation!
