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

This is a MUST when you visit Luxor. This will give you the Ultimate Egypt Experience I promise. By the way, don't think about the price it is all worth the Egyptian Pounds you will pay because the experience is definitely FANTASTIC. Sindbad picked us on our hotel at 4:30am and we crossed the Nile Very early in the morning... More

The hot air balloon ride here is one big attraction. A must have in your bucket list. The hotel you stay will make the arrangements for it if you ask them. However, beware of the cold in the morning, especially if you are visiting in the winter months.

A van picked me up and we made two other stops for more passengers. We were driven to a dock on the... More
