Amazing experience above the valley of the kings! Super spot for hot air balloon! And saw the crepuscule over the beautiful city of Luxor!

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.

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...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.
