Full description

Marvel at views of the Arabian Desert from above with a thrilling hot air balloon flight tour from Dubai. Transfer from your hotel to the landing site and catch the sunrise over the sand. Meet a Peregrine falcon and enjoy a gourmet breakfast. 

Begin your balloon adventure with an early morning pick-up at your hotel. Then, head out before sunrise to the desert to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to begin the adventure. You’ll float above the Arabian Desert for about an hour in the rising morning sun. In addition to seeing giant red sand dunes you’ll be on the lookout for camels, wild gazelles, vivid green oases, date farms, and the ever-changing shadows on the desert landscape. Keep an eye out for the mighty Arabian oryx in their natural habitat. Once you have landed, drive to a private desert conservation reserve and freshen up in the clean, private bathrooms. Get the opportunity to take a photo with a Peregrine falcon and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon, a fruit platter, and more.  After the end of this magical ride you’ll be transferred back to the city and dropped off at your hotel.

It was an amazing adventure and a great experience. Our guide was Nikki who took very good care of us. The organization of the day was very good and especially the balloon ride, but the subsequent relaxed phase in the desert camp was also convincing. The take-off and especially the landing of the balloon are a feat of strength, so that rather frail people could have problems with it. At first we thought that the price of the tour was a bit too high. After the tour we can say it's worth every penny. A clear recommendation!

Hot air ballon captain Donatas together with our driver/ guide Ben were absolute splendid. However, whoever is doing a planning, did a very poor job scheduling 11 people into a 10 people capacity car. I was thrown from a car to car back and forth and it really ruined my experience. I understand that everyone wants to make more money, but don’t ruin your product and customer experience with poor planning practices.

Amazing experience. Would highly recommend. Staff are amazing and very welcoming. Our captain of the balloon ride was informative but also added humour to the experience. Breakfast was beyond what we expected with camel rides and photos with the Falcon all included. Great company to book with. Would do this again
