We had a brilliant trip with Sindbad we drifted along past Hatshepsut's temple and almost over the Ramesseum before a change in wind direction meant that we crossed the Nile and landed about three miles over on the eastern bank. What a great experience.

An early start beginning with a quick trip across the Nile and a short bus drive to the balloon launch site. Quick instructions on what to do during landing and then we're climbing into the basket ready to go. Khaled (our pilot) was great. He turned the basket many times so that everyone could see the different views over farms... More

We paid extra for a balloon with less people in it so that we could get good pictures. Unfortunately on the day we had to argue hard to get that and that is not a great start to the day at 4am. It might be a good experience if you have never been in a balloon before but I found... More

This is my first time on hot air balloon so I really dont have anything to compare it to so I'll just talk about my experience. We woke up pretty early to catch a ferry to the west bank (they serve Tea & coffee on the boat) then drive to the location of the balloons where there were several men... More

The views over Luxor at sunrise are spectacular. The balloons take off, pass over the agricultural fields and houses near the Nile, and there is a good view of the valleys of the kings and queens. The baloon ride was great, except for one disappointing aspect. We did the baloon ride on 2nd of May and the pilot did not... More

I was promised a trip of about 45 minutes. Instead, I got about 10 minutes. It was just like a big jump. They argued problems with the wind, but that is not true because the other companies did continue flying. Also, they did not return any part of the money. It was something like a convinient wind problem to the... More

I had a great experience with Sindbad in Luxor. Khaleb was the captain and I felt very safe with him flying the balloon. He is very funny too! I laughed the entire time. Unforgettable experience. Definitely one of the highlights from my trip to Egypt.

I loved the balloon ride. Before the ride I purchased a video form them thinking they would be on the balloon, not true, it was only ground shots, they did not go up. I paid extra to have the video put on a USB memory stick, since I do not have a CD player. The USB video I purchased from... More
