Expect last minute updates.

The advertisement, itinerary and confirmation email all clearly state that this experience is at 4am and to be in your hotel lobby for pick up 10minutes prior to this. We followed these instructions and at 4.30am no one had arrived. The hotel receptionist kindly contacted the provider for us who said they'd changed the pick up time to 3.20am and we'd missed it. They said they'd called me but I received no missed calls whilst there and if they were struggling to contact me regarding my booking they made no attempt to contact me through the hotel in which they knew I was staying, or through the email address attached to my booking. This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip which we'd saved for the last day of our holiday, but instead we were left disappointed. We did receive a full refund and told the provider they must update their page so the information advertised is accurate so other people are not also left disappointed.

The wind made us miss the sunset.. our pilot was very knowledgeable and experienced. The only reason I gave a 4 is because when we landed in a sugar cane field we were attacked by village boys being a group of women it was really scary until the crew and police came to get us out… thank God we were safe and our pilot got us down safely..

What an experience. Our guide pick us from the cruise ship, on time, offered us a tea coffee and cakes. The pilot was nice, explaining us and giving us details. First time after 5 days in Egypt that I see people fight for the tip, and not just requesting it which we much appreciated. Highly recommended

Trip well organized and on schedule
Junxiang_Z

The tour was confirmed via Whatsapp a day before with pick up time. Pickup was originally scheduled at 3:30am. It was postponed to 3:50am but I didn't get the message because it was sent close to midnight. we were first taken to the port for ferry to the west bank and then transferred to the balloon launch site. The balloon trip itself was smooth and enjoyable. It lasted about 40 minutes. Quite happy with the ride. We arrived back at hotel before 7:00am.

Beautiful but a complete disaster
Violetta_J

The balloon ride itself was a great experience. With a beautiful view and nice crew. However, the organisation was a disaster. We didn’t know the name of the cruise we were staying at till a couple of days before, so when we noticed the balloon company about the name, it took them ages to answer and wouldn’t let me know the timing they were picking me up till 2h before the flight (2 am). The day before it was stressing , as it looked as they would have disappeared and wouldn’t give any explanation or proper answer. If I would know, I’d try another company. Pd. Landing was rough compared to other balloon rides I’ve done before

Use another vendor

Vendor was not able to accommodate the original 4am time. The vendor indicated that we could do a sunset air balling ride. When I was picked up, my group was scheduled for sailing instead without my consent.

Great Tour and Beautiful Views.

What a beautiful way to see Luxor. Our group enjoyed the entire experience, and our guides were extremely helpful. Although out of all of the tours in Egypt this one felt the least organized. We never received any contact from the tour company before pick-up so we were slightly concerned leading up to our tour date. Everything went off without a hitch and we felt very safe the entire time, this is definitely a must-do during your stay in Luxor. Tips felt pushed a little more forcefully on the tour, but this is common throughout Egypt.

Great value for the price
DeAnn_B

The early wake up was more than worth it! We loved seeing the ancient Egyptian sites from above as well as enjoying the peacefulness of being up in the air in the hot air balloon. Our balloon pilot, Mohammed, was attentive to those that were afraid of heights or being in the ballon and took time gaining altitude to allow them to adjust to the experience. We were up in the air for nearly 50 minutes which was adequate for our first ballooning experience. We knew it would be a larger basket with at least 20 riders. It was a great value for the price. Next time, we may go for a more “personal” experience so as to enjoy the quiet of being in the sky a bit more.

Our pick up from our luxor hotel was about 20min late, when i messaged the company about it, they communicated fast that pick up is running behind coz they waited for other clients in previous hotel. We took a boat ride to the site, while in boat, they gave us coffee/tea and wafer snacks. All the staff were nice & helpful. At the site, there were lots of Hot air balloons (i guess from different companies also), each hot air balloon has a big basket with 8sections, each section can accomodate 4 people -so total passenger for each hot air balloon was 32 passengers. Lots of staff were on hand at the site to help is get into the basket, & assisted with the balloon take off. Our captain explained to us the landing position then off we went up in the air. Lots of balloon were up in the air together, so it was a great site with the sunrise colors, the balloons & luxor archeological sites down below. We saw the two giant statues of Memnon, valley of the kings & Hatshepsut temple. The flight was smooth & the landing was surprisingly smooth too. There were lots of staff waiting for us at the landing site too, to help steady the basket we were in & to help us get off. They have a tipping basket which they share to all the crews that helped. They were selling the video link for $10 & USB video for $15. Pretty good deal. All in all, it was a great memorable experience.

We were lucky to have great weather and clear skies. Definitely wear a light jacket and prepare to be blown away. One of the highlights of my Egypt trip for sure!

What an incredible experience! Highly recommend this, especially if you’re American. A balloon ride like this would cost many hundreds in America, but it was only $42 out here.

After booking I contacted the company by WhatsApp and received the confirmation in one hour. The pickup time was not confirmed until the night before the ride, they were organazing the transfers (this aspect can be improved). At the pick up time they were punctual, we moved in a minivan to the motorboat to cross the river and we seat in another minivan until reaching the landing zone of the balloons. They explained the rules and some safety instructions. After that comes the experience of riding the balloon, it was amazing, feels totally safe, the location and views were good. We were in the air around one hour, the landing was light but we missed a couple of landing spots due to the unpredictable wind. After that some 10 men came to dismount the balloon. And we were moved back to minivan/port/hotel. By the way there is a cameraman making a video and selling it at 25$. TIP: the video is the same for everyone and it is sent by email. So if one 1 buys the video he can resent to everyone. So you can agree with him (50/50). The Egyptians try to trick you everywhere so why not to do the same to them?) About what everyone doesn't like in Egypt, nobody is begging for tips in this experience, in the end they put some bag for optional tips and it is not forced, what I really appreciate. In conclusion very good experience by very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

This was the best thing i have done in a long time and i travel all the time. It was amazing, spectacular and jaw dropping. Very professional and safe. If there is anything you do here DO NOT MISS THIS. I actually wanted to go back the next day and do it again. Also my daughter became ill right before the trip and they brought her to a pharmacy and helped her. Thank you so much for a great experience.
