This should be on your bucket list! I have always wanted to fly on a hot air balloon. This was an incredible experience! They pick you up at your hotel, take you to the site, fly you around in complete safety and take you home. Notables: this is the largest hot air balloon in the world! It has been used to set, and is itself a world record. The service is excellent and the staff extremely knowledgeable. My Hungarian pilot, Atilla was a riot and made me feel safe and informed. The views of the emirate desert from a hot air balloon is something you'll dine on for months. Go for it...now!
Captain Atttila is a Excellent Pilot , was very good. i will fly again.

I am so happy that we took this hot air balloon ride. For me, it was a once in a lifetime experience. Everything went as scheduled, we were picked up from our hotel right on time and we were contacted the evening before by the tour company to confirm. Please be aware that there is some degree of physical strength needed to climb into the basket using notches in the side of the basket which I wasn't aware of but could be problematic for some folks who are older or have physical limitations.
It was an excellent experience and I am so glad that my daughter and I shared it together. I highly recommend this trip.
Captain Mike was a great pilot and gave use all a wonderful flight remember to take a coat as a little cool in the morning .
The pilot was excellent very friendly. We saw a farm, few animals, the sunrise was gorgeous.
The pickup was on time
it was absolutely fun.
our tour guide was really friendly and informative.
desert safari is a must do in Dubai
I never sit in an Air Ballon before.
Nice to see how it works.
Felt save the whole time.
Wind situation at landing was tough, but we had a very experienced pilot.
So, no problem.
dunes, the impressive sunrise, camels, a small village, a green oasis, some desert critters, a farm, some farmers who cultivate land.
It was a great time.
You have to get up early for this one, 4:30 - 5:00am.... certainly worth it though ! Watching the sunrise from over a 1000 feet in the air is something special. The pilot was really charming and great at making everyone feel secure and in good spirits considering the early start ! Highly recommended.
Great Experiance, make sure you stay close to the center of the basket as on the sides you realy feel the heat when he used the hot air! But i guess that why its called Hot Air ballooning!!!! :)) Highly recommend it to anyone who goes to Dubai!
A dream come true!!
I loved every second of this trip. The pick up from the hotel was punctual and the captain was super friendly! I always wanted to go on a hot air balloon and Balloon Adventures turned a dream to reality!
At the end of the trip we were offered cold drinks and we bought a video of the tour. A camera was filming the whole trip and we were sent a link were we can download it from after a couple of days.
Everything was just perfect. Definitely recommend!!
