Wake early and begin your hot-air balloon Dubai experience with a pickup from your Dubai hotel or central meeting point. Hop inside your air-conditioned minibus, and travel to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve outside the city. After a scenic drive, arrive at the launch site, and watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated for your flight. Listen to a safety briefing before climbing inside the basket with an experienced pilot at the controls. Each basket holds up to 24 passengers, and there’s plenty of space for you to sightsee as you fly. As you rise higher, take in views of the sunrise, and hear commentary from your pilot about the geology and wildlife of the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Then enjoy a unique opportunity to watch falcons fly up to 4,000 feet (1219 meters) above the Earth in a trained demonstration. After the flight, you'll be driven to a private desert conservation reserve where you'll have the chance to freshen up at clean, private bathrooms. A gourmet breakfast of delicacies, such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar will be served. Afterward, return to your minibus and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.
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.
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 loved it!!! An experience that I would recommend to anyone. Our balloon was for 10 people only so it didn't feel too cramped. I never experienced such silence like being up there and the breakfast was delightful. The whole ritual, riding with those cool cars through the desert was wow!!
What a great adventure! Our balloon captain, Mr. Sanjay, was experienced and entertaining. Seeing the sun rise over the desert at 4,000 feet, with falcons flying, was a thrill and a half! There were 5 balloons flying the morning of our adventure. Our balloon had an added treat we ended-up with 2 falcons when an additional one from another balloon finished the trip with us. It was so quiet and majestic in the air. And our adventure didn't stop there. Transportation to a location with breakfast was a treat, as well. Very professionally done!! Everyone, from the driver of the pick-up van, to the balloon pilot, to the ground crews, to the breakfast servers, was top-notch!
Pickup and return was smooth. The driver was friendly and punctual. The balloon ride was a lifetime experience by itself - amazing view of the vast desert. The balloon pilot and the falcon trainer were both in their own aspects. End it off with a sumptous desert dinner.
We enjoy the Hot Air Balloon as the weather was a bit chill. However, very disappointed with the breakfast since it was mentioned as the Gourmet breakfast but the breakfast was no where near a Gourmet. Consider pretty expensive.
