What people are saying about Aswan Governorate

Beautiful experience, impeccable organization. I booked this activity with some fear, worried that the organization and/or the conditions of the balloons were not good enough. Instead, an experience not to be missed, I would say a MUST in Luxor. There were about 800 people (I swear), they come to pick you up at the hotel at 4.30 mini cruise with coffee/tea to cross the Nile, super impeccable organization with the transfers moving simultaneously to the place of departure, within 2 hours see the Valley of the Kings from above, hot air balloons flying over it simultaneously (at least 30). Super modern balloons, equipped with tablets with a special program to coordinate and communicate between the pilots and the driver who acts as a guide while driving the balloon. In short, an experience not to be missed, one of the most beautiful to do in Luxor. The only flaw, the children who attack the tourists for the tip upon landing (the organizers recommend ignoring it).

We had an amazing experience.. from hotel pick up to the baloon site was so smooth and right on time .. Gabriel is just an amazing guard .. very transparent and gave all the informations we needed for the adventure … A worthwhile adventure and will definitely highly recommended’.. Kudo’s to Gabriel he did his job with so much passion ..

Great experience! Transfer was on time, we got to the boat that transferred us to the west side and from there with a bus again again until balloon field. Take off point is near to Hatshepsut temple. Amazing sunrise and very friendly pilot. Totally can recommend it!
