    Thanks for the great trip and the wonderful services! The staff was very kind and friendly people. They explained to us before the start of the ride about the landing position, and the safety of the balloon. The ride itself was memorable and unforgettable. The sunrise view was just At the top 🌅!

    I have made a dream
    Arnaud_P, Mar 2023
    Sheba tour was very efficient We have done a 30 mn flight Amazing over 30 centuries of history ! It’s worth waking up at 4AM It’s a must do experience .
    Book with another agency than VIATOR!
    Joan_G, Mar 2023
    What a deception! We booked a sunrise experience with hot air balloon. What a surprise to be informed the day before that the sunrise ride will be switch to a morning ride. The messy organization is a real problem for this experience : the bus collected us really late, we waited more than 1 hour before riding, then the way back to our hotel lasted 1 hour for only 5 km… However, the experience is incredible. What amazing views on plenty of temples and Nile valley. Yet we highly recommend booking the experience through another company than Viator. PS: we wrote back to the agency after the experience, without any answers. Really poor service offered by viator regarding this experience.
    Cheap tours - Amazing !
    Mohit_P, Mar 2023
    The experience was great in everyway. The pick up was at the exact time and the balloon took off right on time to catch the sunset. We paid for the video additional but yet to see how they have shot it. The views are great and we were also skeptical about the programme as it was quite cheap but "cheap tours" rock!
    Great Balloon Ride

    Balloon ride disappointment
    Paul_H, Jan 2023
    Balloon ride was cancelled and we only found out when we rang up to check on the pick up time, they would have let us get up at 3am to wait for a car that was not going to come. Dreadful communication. Massive disappointment

    Madison_B, Dec 2022
    Amazing views of the temple complex and Luxor overall. Our group leader was helpful and easy to coordinate pick-up/drop-off times with. They provided tea and snacks, and even played the drums during our initial send-off into the air. Incredible experience for sure!
    Great Hot Air Balloon Experience...
    shin_w, Nov 2022
    Thanks for the great trip and the wonderful services! I booked a day before the ride, they confirmed with me right after the booking, picked up from the hotel next morning 330am, everything went smooth and the ride was life time memory...
    Garazi_M, Oct 2022
    We wrote the contact number the day before but didn't receive a response. At 3.30am, with the help of the receptionist, we got ahold of the organiser. He told us that he didn't see the booking, although it was done 3 weeks before, and the balloon was already fully booked. He didn't give us a solution and we missed it. If you are booking a balloon ride, I recommend you do it once in Egypt with local guides or your hotel.

    Fun Experience.
    Kiancee_S, Oct 2022
    Fun experience. Driver picked us up in a timely manner. Boat Ride to Westbank was nice. Tour guides and Instructors were nice When we were given the clear to Fly, our captain did a great job in maneuvering the balloon and showing us the sites in the area. Definitely an experience I would do again with this company specifically. Worth the money and the experience is thrilling, yet amazing.
    Please do not book with this agency, terrible experience and poor customer service
    Luis_G, Oct 2022
    It was very difficult to contact this service provider. I've tried to call them, send them whatsapp, get my hotel to call them, and they only reply back with very little information. They were very demanding in asking for passport photos but did not answer any of the logistic questions we had. Such a terrible experience and will recommend Trip Advisor & Viator to remove this from their recommended service providers. Also the duration of the hot air balloon was very short, and at the end all the staff is very pushy trying to get a tip from all their customers

    James_S, Jul 2022
    What an excellent experience! My and my friends had a very amazing time. We got more than expected, the service was just perfect and the ride was well organized, We got picked up on time from our hotel, Caught the sunrise from the beginning and saw some temples from the sky. Also, the price was Impressive, the other companies tried to charge us more for the same ride. Highly recommend! Nothing to complain about!!!
    Alpha_G, Jul 2022
    Everything was superb. The pick up was on the exact scheduled time, Crew were friendly and polite and the Pilot Amr was EXCELLENT he explained to us the sites from the sky. Also, it was super safe, they explained to us the safety measures before the ride Including how the landing will be and etc.... The views from the sky is worth the early morning wake up. We saw such Incredible sites from the sky like Valley of the kings and Colossi of Memnnon. Definitely would recommend and would do it again without a doubt! It deserves 100 Stars!! Thanks again!
    Great experience driver...
    Angel_B, May 2022
    Great experience driver came on time. Met us in the lobby. The air ballon experience was one for the bucket list. Would highly recommend.
    JustKool_L, May 2022
    Horrible ! This is a scam! We booked, paid for and was confiemed and got tickets for this ride. We waited at 4am the morning of the ride to be picked up at our hotel at the scheduled time of 4:15 am but noone showed up! We called the phone number listed for the operator and the phone was off!! Never got the ride we paid for. It's a Scam! Do not book anything with this agent! We are still trying to get our money back.
