Sindbad gave a very professional trip starting with flight and landing instructions, a very smooth ride, and a very gentle landing. They had plenty of ground staff to load the 20 passengers into the balloon as well as help them disembark at the end. Make absolutely sure that you will be taking the first balloon to take off just before sunrise. The pickup time in Luxor is about one hour prior to balloon liftoff, since you will need to be transported to the Nile, cross the Nile in a motor launch, and then be transferred to the balloon takeoff site. This will ensure that you will be in the air when the sun rises casting a rosy glow over the scenery below. I understand companies are limited in terms of the number of balloons they can launch at any one time. After touchdown, it will take about one hour to get back to your hotel in Luxor.
