“Very safe and organized operation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

They came to our hotel exactly at 4 am as agreed. The boat across the Nile was waiting for us. We got a professional safety briefing by the pilot and the balloons were ready to go when we got to the field. We were in the air by 5:30 and had a stunning flight and non-eventful landing. Back at the hotel for a 7:00 breakfast. These people are a first class organization, right down to the details. I highly recommend them. Fun, memorable, interesting. safe.

“Family friendly experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

We took our four children on the Sindbad hot air balloon ride. We loved the experience. We were well cared for from hotel to finish.

The safety briefing was very well explained and simple. Although our 7 and 9 year old girls were a bit scared of the noise, the trip itself was silky smooth.

I was most impressed by our pilot. He managed to take us directly to the valley of the kings and he knew we were most interested in flying over the monuments. There was another balloon from a different company in the distance, they didn't get as close to the valley/mountain areas.

The landing was soft and exciting, and the staff very professional. We would happily get up at 4am and do it again!

“Best time ballooining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

One of Egyptian trip highlight. The pilot and crew are extremely professional. The balloon and equipment felt super safe and welcoming. The pilot did his best to ensure our trip flew over the best sites and he delivered. We flew over the valley of kings, tombs and temples. Everything went smoothly as hoped. You will miss out if you don't book this trip.

“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Egypt. The ground crew was excellent, explained everything clearly. The pilot was professional and explained all of his actions during the flight. We flew up to 2000 meters and landed at the entrance to the "Valley of the Kings". Very comfortable ride and a very soft landing. I have a fear of heights, but this ride was incredible and I had no fear at all.
