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.

I went solo as my husband and son were not too keen on the wee hours and height. During the booking process, queries were being responded to quickly. My pickup time was 5:35am from the Sheraton Grand Dubai - it was prompt and a safe drive to the take-off site. Beware though, the drive itself and the balloon ride is... More

This was the best experience I have ever had. I am so happy I did this. I was a little nervous this being my first time in an hot air balloon but it's actually calming and peaceful when you get up. It was a very smooth ride. I had an amazing time. Captain Mike was great!!! He was funny, talkative,... More

What a great day. Balloon flight at 4000ft. Vintage Landrover, and a good breakfast. Bucket list item ticked. Our guests were blown away. The Dutch pilot we had was great.

We were never been fans of ballooning because of fear of safety and heights. When we decided to go ballooning we did some research and decided on this company, and it was a great decision . From start to finish, safety was priority. Peter , the captain , was strict with safety, funny with acid sense of humor . Communication... More

Experience that was well put together - from first contact to subsequent emails, to the pick-up at the hotel, the actual flight with a falcon, the smooth landing, the short dune ride, breakfast, land-rover drive, and then drop-off back at the hotel. We left our hotel at 5.30am and were back by about 11.30am - all in good time to... More

Fabulous throughout and the falcon show made it even better. Everything was on time, the pick up, take off, landing and the fantastic breakfast camp. Staff was friendly throughout the trip and had a great sense of humor. Mike, our captain, was an absolute delight. Highly recommended. Again, fantastic!!

Obviously the view from the hot air balloon was amazing. Our pilot did a great job of explaining what was below us, we even got to see a couple of wild gazelles playing in the desert! They told us that they would be leaving the meeting point at 6:05am sharp and that they do not wait. They generously waited until... More
