Our guide, one of the partners, was charming well, informed and made you feel safe. Gave help when needed. Offered wondered commentary on the sights. Did not protect a space at breakfast for his group so we were all split up. My only complaint.

Eat breakfast in the largest restaurant in the world! It is well worth it! The peaceful ride was over wildlife and was completely safe. No telephone wires to run into on this flight as there are none!

It really is worth getting up so early and paying the price. You will never forget the experience. I have vertigo and was worried I' d crouch on the floor of the basket, but no problem at all! Very safe impression.

It was an amazing hot air balloon experience. A peaceful trip, informative and great breakfast included. I was a bit disappointed that we did not go over the dunes. If you do want to experience the dunes I recommend the aeroplane trip with Desert Air....More

Our balloon trip was the last activity before we had to return to reality. The father and son team provided a memorable experience over the spectacular dunes. To cap it off, they provide a big communal breakfast!
