Hot air balloon ride, Luxor, Egypt

What to Expect
Hot air ballooning is an activity not to be missed with us! Enjoy watching the largest open air museum (Luxor) from above. You will gently drift over spectacular temples, fields and  the valleys scattered with houses.

You will be picked up early morning from your Hotel/Nile cruise in Luxor by the hot air balloon representative to be transferred to the west bank of Luxor where your flight will begin and last for almost 45 minutes (the whole tour will take in between 2.5 to 3hrs since you are picked up till you are done)

Balloon flights over Luxor require good weather and can only be made when the forecast wind direction will enable the balloon to stay out of restricted air space and with sufficient wind speed but unlike any other company, if your balloon didn't fly due to weather condition you will be fully refunded all of your money and you won't pay for your transfer to the flying spot and be driven back to your hotel/cruise for fee as well
