Despite the early morning wakeup call, the ride was well worth it. The basket was very large, 16 tourists plus crew. We were crowded in a bit, so it was difficult to see in all directions, but the captain did a good job of turning the balloon so we all had a view in each direction on a regular basis.... More

A great service, very professional and Captain Bob does a fine job of explaining things. I've gone twice and both were different experiences, due to wind etc...both were good trips. He is safety conscious and his brother went above and beyond for my sister and I. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone.

Was able to enjoy the trip and relax once I got over my initial fears. The scenery was amazing. It's a brilliant trip and an amazing way to see Luxor. A... More

Where to even begin? (This was so good that it's only my 2nd Trip Advisor review ever). We arrived in Luxor and contacted Magic Horizon and they were able to get us into the First Flight the following day. We met the owner of the company - Aladin/Mr. Alla that night for payment and who went out of his way... More

We booked a balloon trip through the Nile Cruise company, Radamis Travel and were overcharged. They charged full price for children (8 & 10 yrs) and we even had a quotation in advance but they charged us more on the day. Awesome experience. Seeing Luxor from above was a superb experience before taking the ground excursions but book directly with... More
