The day begins with an early morning rise. A driver will pick you up at the reception of your hotel. Then, we take you to the place of embarkation in the West Bank (by boat and / or minibus) depending on the location of your hotel (East or West Bank). Then, instructions are given, especially on the positions to have during the landing. Shortly before sunrise, officers inflated the balloon. Then, you get into the basket. Finally after landing, the teams deflate the sail and bring you to your hotel. Duration: approximately 2 hours between leaving the hotel and returning to the hotel, including 45 min of flight
A mystical experience! To rise up. Soaring over the Valley of the Kings and feeling in the silence of eternity what it must have meant to live here millennia ago. All the excavations in view. And to see a bird's eye view of all the "holy" cities that have not yet been excavated. Identifiable by the outline in the sand.
The view is obviously fabulous with both the Nile and the surrounding mountains. On the other hand, a lot of people in convoy and we don't really appreciate the mass tourism side. The inflation of the balloons is impressive but the landing was a bit violent.
The balloon ride is beautiful, it is very quiet and relaxing and you can enjoy incredible views. Highly recommended. My lady is afraid of heights however she was able to fully enjoy the trip
Very good, punctual balloon ride with a spectacular view!
