They came to pick us up early early in the morning. I want to say at 5:15 AM. We were running late (as our lost luggage had just arrived minutes before that morning) and missed our pickup. They mean 5:15, not 5:20. Luckily, our guide service was there to give us a ride to the boat. At the boat, we... More

This trip offered fantastic views of Luxors sights and the Nile. We were picked up as expected, taken to a boat where tea and biscuits were served to cross the Nile. Unlike other balloon trips I have done, these had a huge baskets, taking up to 32 people in pods of 4. Ours was nearly full. Although this did make... More

Have done this balloon trip a couple of times - a fantastic experience not to be missed. This is the only way to fully appreciate the size of the valley and the number of tombs. Outstanding view of Hatshepsut temple.

We confirmed several times yesterday and this morning, woke up at the crack of dawn and they blew us off. We waited for the guide to come pick us up. He did come but he took a... More

We took a hot air balloon ride with this outfit on the west bank of the Nile in Luxor. The calm quiet one hour ride gave us fantastic views of the antiquities of the area, including Hatshepsut's Temple, Valleys of Kings and Queens and Merdinet Habu.

This was a wonderful experience flying over the valley of the kings. However I wish some tourists would not spoil it for others using their selfie stick. The views were spectacular and I felt very safe with this company. Nice to do in winter.
