We bought the tickets in our hotel (Bob Marley Hotel) and cost 520 E.P for 2 people. They picked us up at 5 o'clock, drove us to the boat, served a little breakfast and we went to the balloon area. Is possible to buy a video service to film you, we didn't buy. The pilot was so nice and funny.... More

This is my second time of being in a hot air balloon in Luxor. I did this 10 years ago with my nephew, I had forgotten how wonderful it is, the views are amazing. The pickup was easy, and on time from the hotel at 4:30am. The balloon ride was smooth and exciting. The instructions were reassuring and the landing... More

Was afraid that I wouldn't be able to get into the ballon, because I am short and have way too many extra pounds. While I was sizing the situation up, before I knew it they lifted me up into the basket and I had no chance to change my mind. So glad I did that. When landing, they asked if... More

We paid to flight over 3 different temples and we also paid for a video CD of the whole experience. There were about 7 balloons, we were the first one to arrive and for some reason we were the last one to leave. Since all of the other balloons flight far away over all of the temples, we only flew... More

Our trip started before dawn with a boat ride to the West Bank. Coffee and tea were served on the boat. 8 balloons were flying that morning, the organization of people and balloons was excellent. The trip felt very safe, the pilot was confident and informative. A landing safety briefing was included. Our trip took us back to the east... More

Everything went all - I was picked up from the boat on time, joined the others in the van before proceeding to a boat to have coffee/tea and then arriving at the location by van. After the ride, the staff knew exactly where I should alight to meet my tour guide.

They arrange EVERYTHING for you in advance and you even get a boat ride and coffee if you have to cross the nile river.

Had an amazing trip with Sindbad tours in over Luxor. We booked via Nefertiti tours and they helped keep cost down and organization perfect. Super early morning, but worth the trip to see everything from above before you tour it all later in the day on foot. Breathtaking views and very cool to be up in a hot air balloon.
