What You Can Expect

Atlas Mountains Hot Air Balloon Ride from Marrakech with Berber Breakfast and Desert Camel Experience

Experience a camel ride after breakfast to end your tour

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.

After around 40 to 50 minutes, (depending on weather conditions), 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 corn bread, 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.

This experience is definitely worth every cent! Marrakech By Air did a fabulous job making sure everyone had an awesome time from pick up to drop off. The balloon ride was like a comedy show in the sky and breakfast and the camel ride were delightful as well. I loved every second of it!

This tour was amazing! Fantastic service, very knowledgeable pilot and team. Unfortunately the sky was cloudy but even then we were able to see the Atlas Mountains and have a great experience.

They pick up at my hotel at 5.45 it was not in the centre, but close take a a 30 minutes ride into the desert. Its quiet cold, so take a jacket and a hat! They waited for us with some croissaint and hot tea and coffee. After they blow up the balloon, we were flying for about 45 minutes. After we ate a breakfast jam, honey, olives, breads, eggs and went to the camel ride place. thi sis really touristic and I felt sorry for the animals We arrived back to the hotel around 11.00 a.m.

Fantastic experience. Do not expect much instruction starting with the pick up. The driver never spoke to us but to try a make a joke about being held up for our money. In general the Pilot was good, landed on the gondalia on the trailer, but offered only bad jokes, nothing about what we were seeing. All in all though I would recommend as the overall experience is memorable.

This was was first balloon ride. Pickup from hotel was on time arrived at departure point just before dawn. What an experience. Tea, coffee and croissants next to bonfires as balloon was inflated. Amazing views and very humerous pilot. Landed to breakfast in tent. Well worth it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

This experience was amazing! We were collected from our Riad at the correct time and taken to a lovely setting to await departure. The drivers were friendly and our hot air balloon pilot/guide was absolutely hilarious but also informative making the ride so much more enjoyable. The views were lovely and there were plenty of photo opportunities. I think it was a good length of time not too long or short. The breakfast was nice served in a stunning Moroccan style outdoor tent followed by camel rides closer to the medina. The camel ride staff were friendly and funny, offering to take photos and cracking lots of jokes. We were back at our riad by 11am so plenty of time for more activities in the afternoon. Highly recommend!

Excellent trip. All of the guides and assistants were great fun. My mother struggled to climb in and out of the balloon basket and they simply carried her out! The breakfast was great and even the camels were friendly!

I went with my mother to the Hot Air Ballon Ride, and it was one of the best moments in Marrakesh for both of us, our guide was a blast, really funny guy, telling jokes each five minutes and completing the awesome experience of riding a balloon during the sunrise in the outer part of Marrakesh. The breakfast was a plus, and the camel ride was ok, not great but ok.

I really recommend anyone there to try the trip if you have the time and the money, it is definitely a must!.
