Was worried about doing this trip as have vertigo and afraid of heights. Was very much put at ease by the professionalism and competence of the pilot, Captain "Bob". 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

This was one of the highlights of my time in Egypt. Having visited cairo, luxor, aswan and Alexandria. I'd highly recommend this company they're the original and the best. You get an awesome view and it's an unforgettable experience 😊.

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

Magic Horizon Balloons exceeded my expectations. Captain Memo was an amazing captain and very professional. He provided very detailed explanations regarding flight safety and what to expect while taking off and landing. The entire crew and owner welcomed us with such hospitality and warmth. I was picked up from my hotel and dropped off at the Nile to take a... 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

Floating in a glorious red balloon while watching the sunrise above ancient Egyptian temples, the Nile River, and the Luxor countryside is nothing short of ah-mazing! I think I smiled the entire time. I traveled Egypt for three weeks, and this balloon ride above Luxor was one of the top activities of the entire journey. The pilot of Magic Horizon... More

As a travel marketer by profession in Canada, my expectations are very high. This was my first (definitely not my last) visit to Luxor and to Egypt. My sister and I booked our Hot Air Balloon trip with Horizon on the fly the night we arrived to Luxor for the next morning! It was worth the 3:45 AM wake up... More

They came to pick us up early early in the morning. I want to say at 5:15 AM. We were running late (as our lost luggage had just arrived minutes before that morning) and missed our pickup. They mean 5:15, not 5:20. Luckily, our guide service was there to give us a ride to the boat. At the boat, we... More

This trip offered fantastic views of Luxors sights and the Nile. We were picked up as expected, taken to a boat where tea and biscuits were served to cross the Nile. Unlike other balloon trips I have done, these had a huge baskets, taking up to 32 people in pods of 4. Ours was nearly full. Although this did make... More
