We tried the ballon ride with Sindbad Hot Air balloons. the Captan was professional and we were lucky to have a ride above nile as well. it's highly recommended ( but not for families with babies or very young kids, as landing of balloon can be difficult for them)

Yousef,our team leader started with careful instructions on how to land. Our balloon was divided into 4 compartments with 4 people per compartment. He also told us that the... More

Hot air ballooning in luxor was an incredible experience! We got picked up from our hotel and taken to the site where we took off in the balloon, we were lucky and got to balloon over the nile! Once we landed in the dessert the ground crew were there to drive us back to meet the rest of our tour.

We bought the tickets in our hotel (Bob Marley Hotel) and cost 520 E.P for 2 people. They picked us up at 5 o'clock, drove us to the boat, served a little breakfast and we went to the balloon area. Is possible to buy a video service to film you, we didn't buy. The pilot was so nice and funny.... More

The pickup was easy, and on time from the hotel at 4:30am. The balloon ride was smooth and exciting. The instructions were reassuring and the landing... More
