The flight was wonderful but very pricy honestly. Each balloon carried around 24 people so I feel overcharged. Really stunning views from the air after all.
Absolutely fantastic. A must see to view the Valley of the nobles from the air. Awesome
It is a lovely thing to do...
Subleme! Must do.
The representative was good but need to change the Hot Air Balloon company - they were a 2bit show, not professional. We were kept standing in the basket for 20mins after landing in some poor farmers ploughed field then another 30min as the pilot decided to throw a tantrum and stormed off into the cane/corn? field. Had to be called back to give out certificates. Have done Hot Air Ballooning in Turkey and know how a professional company acts.
The flight was great but after being picked up at 5am, we waited on the boat to cross the Nile for almost a hour while numerous other boats left and we could seen balloons taking off. So we missed the sunrise. The flight itself was great.
Fun but not as good as I thought it would be. I got the worst position, I was standing near the pilot and the heat from the gas was unbearable and a bit worrying. I felt like a chicken in an oven, if I had been I would have bee well done by the time we landed. Also even though there was a photographer following us we were not offered a photo of this flight which usually happens on balloon flights. Also did not appreciate being left with the dozen of children begging for money or the shirts given to us I had one child practicallly grab this shirt put of my hands. n .
Great hot air balloon - amazing to see Egypt from the air. Really liked how guests were picked up from their hotel and taken directly to the balloon and back. Confirming time of pick up was a nightmare though.
my trip was very good. the pilot was excellent, he told us all about the surrounding countryside and the points of interest.. we were picked up on time.the only disappointment was that i expected to see the sunrise from the balloon but we were too late getting arbourne and so it rose whilst the balloon was being inflated. apart from that, it was an excellent trip
This was my first Balloon flight. Looked forward to it. Was Ok. A good opportunity for photo's. But to many people in the basket for comfort and good visibility. The trip could of covered more distance too.
The Hot Air Balloon ride was one of the best things I did on my trip to Egypt. Viator made if very easy to reserve a spot before leaving the US. If you are going in the off seasonsummer you can save yourself some money and make this reservation with your hotel or a private company and save a lot of money.
The flight itself was perfect and the pilot seemed to be very profesional. BUT - in Viator website, it is written that the flight is 1.5-2 hours, while the flight duration was actualy 40 minutes. Second, after the flight, the crew perform one-minute-chicken-dance in order to ask for tips. It is not neccesary, and it just perpetuates the feeling that everything in Egypt is done in order to ask for additional money.
From pickup to return, it was excellent and good value - very much enjoyed by both of us elderly travellers.
A great experience with an excellent crew.
It is a lovely thing to do, and was well organised.
