Afterward, return to your minibus and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

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.

A dope experience. Really enjoyed the balloon and the breakfast was awesome. Guides were fun and entertaining. Coming back for this one again!!!

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.

FAN TAS TIC. Yes it really was that good. A must do experience with a very professional company running the trip.

If you are afraid of heights, you don't get a sense of height in the balloon. It is calm and serene and you will love the experience. We saw camels racing across the desert, as well as gazelles. Would do it again in a heart beat.
