What To Expect

Rise early and leave your Marrakech hotel by 4x4 with your guide. Relax inside the air-conditioned vehicle as you travel to the launch site in time for your balloon ride.

On arrival, boost your energy with pastries, tea, and coffee and look on as your experienced crew prepares your balloon. Climb into the spacious basket for takeoff. Each basket accommodates up to 16 people, and there’s ample room for you to sightsee comfortably as you fly.

Thrill as your balloon rises into the skies and ogle the aerial views of the desert as you float through the air. Take photos of the rocky valleys and peaks as your pilot steers your balloon over the foothills of the Atlas Mountains.

Touch down safely back to ground then, take a seat in a tent overlooking the mountains and savor a delicious breakfast of Berber staples such as cornbread, pancakes, olives, fresh fruit, and mint tea.

Having enjoyed breakfast, take a camel ride around the sandy lanes of the Palmeraie desert complex next to the camp.

Receive a commemorative flight certificate to mark your balloon ride, and return to your Marrakech hotel by 4x4 to end your trip.

Just double check that your driver is with the correct company when they pick you up at the hotel, as there are other companies that do similar activities that won’t check names.
Be prepared to get up early, but was definitely worth it.

So worth it minus the camel ride.
Arianna_M, Nov 2021
Everything was fun and high quality. Tour guides were very kind. Definitely worth it. However, the camel ride was a little disappointing. It was more an empty parking lot than a 'desert oasis'... If I'd known, I would have booked everything else and saved my money on the camel ride.
Breaktaking experience

Have to start off by saying the tour guide was absolutely hilarious and made the experience all the more special. The ambiance is something that will live long in my mind. The best time to do the tour is the 6am pick up even if you're feeling sluggish. Being hoisted hundreds of feet into air will cure any lethargy. Some of the best picture opportunities of the trip.

Breathtaking views, super comfortable ride
Ronald_G, Nov 2021
The ride itself, our pilot, the driver that picked us up, all were memorable experiences that my wife and myself will cherish forever. The ride was smooth, the views were amazing and breathtaking. The crew took special care of the passengers on take off, and when we landed, they were experts in their craft making sure we were safely secured on top of the platform. We never felt unsafe once. I would recommend this to people who are slightly afraid of heights and want to push the boundaries. This is the safe and comfortable entry to participating in a activity that requires you to be high in the air. Amazing and worth the price of admission
Feeling High!

This was one for the bucket list. Obviously the experience of watching the sun rise over the Atlas mountains from a birds eye view is incredible in its own right. But the organizers of the team knew that it was my partners birthday (there was someone else's birthday as well) and they went far and beyond to make it a special experience for her. The balloon pilots had a phenomenal sense of humour, joked and sang and interacted with the passengers (I believe up to 12 people fit in the quite large and relatively spacious basket). They originally had to reschedule the experience due to a weather storm but managed to communicate the next best availability and made sure we were happy with any of the changes. The balloon ride was truly truly magical and now that I am back in rainy London it still brightens up my day. Can't suggest it enough. There was also a Camel ride included, depending on the booking. The camels were well fed and happy but the ride itself was quite short and the landscape you travel through not particularly worth seeing. If you are not a fan of these kind of tourist activities, it might be worth skipping out on the camel ride.
Surreal

Amazing and surreal experience. Beautiful views of the sunrise. The captain had good communication and took great care. My only issue is with the driver who initially picked us up from the hotel as he was driving quite fast and breaking red lights even though there was no rush.
Great experience

Wonderful Experince- a Must!
Shaukat_R, Sep 2021
Such an amazing, once in a lifetime experince. Our pilot was absolutely hilarious the whole time and full of jokes (unfortunately we didn’t catch his name but really appreciated the joke he made about losing his hair from the balloon flame!) Loved every single part. Even saw the stars and constellations in the night when we arrived. Would highly recommend this experince. Very friendly, professional and helpful staff. We even got two breakfasts (a special mention to the delicious croissants we got before the ride, we especially loved them!) Was definitely worth the very early start. Overall, one of the best experiences we had on the trip.
AMAZING
