I would have given 5 stars because it was wonderful however when I got home and wanted to review the $15. video that was offered, it was 12 sec of some strangers...very disappointed in that.

Absolutely loved this ride! We opted for the sunrise. It's such a great way to start your day. Something calming about floating in the air and watching the world below. Only criticism is that they do pack you in so it does become crowded.

One of the highlights of my time in Luxor. My first time in a hot air balloon and it was fantastic! Very professional pilot and staff, we were in the air for 70 minutes after being told it was only 40 minutes - loved having the extra time!

My wife and I had a good experience on the trip itself. The pickup was on time and the flight was without incident. The pilot was nice and did a good job on our flight. Total time in the air was as advertised around 40 minutes. The reason I cannot rate higher is the prices paid by the customers is... More
