Really enjoyed the balloon ride, wished it went up higher but the winds weren't in our favour it seemed. It was really cold though. We went in January, and it was like 11 degrees in the morning. The higher we went, the colder it was. Shivering! We were very fortunate to be in Captain Peter's balloon coz he is really the most experienced pilot and also the former owner of the company! We enjoyed the falcon show on board. Breakfast was also amazing! The spread was great - eggs benedict, baked eggs... it was a treat! Thanks for an unforgettable experience. And also, just a note - toilet is only available at the breakfast place, so don't forget to use the toilet befoore the hotel pick up. There's no toilet when you reach the hot air balloon...

Lovely experience. Great pilot and crew. Breakfast was good and could have been better and overall experience of seeing sunrise while taking off was amazing.

The crew were amazing, the whole hit air balloon experience was amazing. We were able to see some of the best views from above. Sunrise above the mountains and the desert was a perfect combo. Food was decent and camping location was clean.

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Not only do you get a hotel pick-up so you can sleep on your way to the dessert, but you get to watch the balloons being blown up before jumping in and taking off. The sunrise is less amazing than just the views over the dessert and getting to watch the falcon in flight while you're in flight was fairly spectacular. The wind currents played in our favor so we couldn't touch down in the first place we intended, so we were in the air for over an hour. Our pilot was an eccentric character that made the flight as entertaining as the views were spectacular. Would highly recommend if you're even thinking about it.

We went on 3/2/20 and it was wonderful! We were picked up at 430am at our hotel and rode in a van with with other passengers to the site. It was dark when we arrived and soon it became light. We watched the balloon being readied and soon it was time to climb in the basket! We had a falconer with us and a falcon called Ivan. It was quiet and we saw the sun rise over the desert and other balloons in the air. Ivan flew around the balloon and came back and he given a treat! The breakfast was wonderful and we rode a camel! I would have given it the maximum stars but we paid cash for the video and they didn’t send it to my email address.

So glad we booked this excursion! The balloon ride was amazing! We also enjoyed our balloon pilot and falcon and falcon trainer. We have some amazing pictures for the balloon and with the 1950s Land Rovers!

Our captain Richard was amazing and kept us enthralled the entire flight. All safety measures were properly explained time and again. Falcon exprience was ok. Take off was smooth and landing bumpy as explained but was fun. Over all a must try at least once.

I was in Dubai around 2 y. ago. I was up much higher than this time and the ride was a longer one while looking at the sky and the sun rise. Very disappointed with this one because I had friends with me and had told them about the hot air balloon 2 yrs ago. . The price was the same as 2 years ago but the ride was disappointing for the reasons that I stated above. .
