Hot air balloon trip over Luxor Our hot air balloon trip over Luxor, Egypt was fantastic! Sunrise was glorious just before liftoff. We made friends with some of the other riders, taking lots of photos of each other with the valley of the kings, the valley of the queens, or one of several temples in the background. We cruised over fields of grain and sugar cane and got a very good photo of a fox! We went up and down a little a few times, but my son would like to have gone higher and varied more, of course. The pilot was great and we landed safely and smoothly. The weather was very cooperative, so the ride was about an hour and we crossed the whole west side of the Nile, landing a little ways into the desert.

Amazing, safe and not-to-be-missed in Luxor You might be hesitating whether to do the hot air balloon in Luxor as we did before we came to Luxor. I am so pleased that we finally did it. The entire trip was well organized. The balloon is in good condition and our pilot is very experienced. We felt 100% safe all the time. Moreover, the price is a bargain comparing to ballon rides you can get in elsewhere in the world. We paid only Eur35/person. Some tips: 1. Make sure you choose a flight on which you can see the sunrise. I think taking off 20 minute before the sunrise is about the right time; 2. Ask your hotel to prepare breakfast box for you so that you can have breakfast after the balloon ride; 3. You can combine the balloon ride with your day tour in Luxor west bank so that you don't have to come to west bank twice. You can ask your driver/guide to meet you at Colossi of Memnon after the balloon ride.

Good for the price. With hot air balloon rides all around the world averaging 200usd nowadays, Luxor is an excellent deal, especially if you book direct from the balloon companies. But even if you end up paying the full price of about 90usd, it's still a lot cheaper than anywhere else. Also, the weather conditions in Luxor is extremely calm so it's good for those who are nervous about going up in the air in a basket. The caveat is that ballooning in Luxor starts earlier when the sky is still dark, so there's not enough light to take photos, and if the flight is short, then you may only get a couple minutes of light after sunrise. Also, the terrain in Luxor simply doesn't have that much to see, but at least until the tourists numbers go back to normal you won't have to pay much for it. They are starving for business. As for the balloon company itself, I don't have much to say about them except they were no-frills and efficient. However, the one annoying thing is that they hand you comment cards while you're still in the basket after landing and won't let you off until you fill it out. Then they proceed to read the cards right away and if they see anything that they deem to be negative, they will seek you out right away and ask why you're not completely satisfied with them, right in full view of everyone else. Also, they can't seem to differentiate between a suggestion and a complaint. Suggestions are taken as complaints, and they are over sensitive to everything you write down. I've noticed this behavior in restaurants also, where you're handed comment cards and if you fill it out they will read it on the spot and talk to you about it in full view of everyone. I think it may be a common practice in Egypt. They need to learn some subtlety and stop reacting so dramatically to everything.

Wonderful flight The flight and ground crew were very professional and friendly. This was my first hot air balloon ride and I would definitely recommend Sindbad Balloons to everyone. The views were beautiful and breath taking. Thank you so much for making my first ride such a wonderful experience!

Excellent experience! We had a really good time with Sindbad. It was our first hot air balloon ride and we're ready to go again! Our pilot, Khaled, picked us up at our hotel and gave us a bit of special treatment (the other group on the balloon was a group of 9). Although we were given the safety briefing for rough landings, it definitely wasn't needed, as we touched down very softly. We stayed low for the first part of the flight, gliding a hundred feet or so above the farms of the West Bank, Colussus of Memnon, and Medinet Habu. While that was nice, I was relieved that Khaled then took us up to around 2,000 feet for some amazing views. Pick-up and drop-off service was easy enough, my only gripe was that the company called the hotel a few times the day before to remind me to pay online. While I should've done that earlier, one reminder would have been sufficient. Also, thank you to Hany for the recommendation to go to Om Hashem for lunch. Really, really good!

Luxor hot air balloon experience We had a brilliant flight , our captain Ahmed was excellent .We never felt in any danger and the ride was very smoothy ....with Amed landing perfectly . We left at 4 15 am and were driven to the take off point . We were even able to see our balloon inflated and 'fired' up ready for take off .The views over the west bank .....and Howard Carters'a residence were spectacular . The early flight enabled us to see the sun rise over the Valley of the Kings and the river Nile. Cost at this time was £75 per person and worth every penny ! Sindad Hot Air Balloon rides are also going to be located in Dubai ....again a sight that should not be missed.

Excellent Trip We did the Hot Air Balloon ride as part of a 2 day trip to Cairo and then Luxor through Sharm Tours Club and it was absolutely amazing. The staff were very professional and we felt safe and secure throughout the tour. The captain was very knowledgeable of the area and very professional. Would definitely recommend this Company!

Totally AWESOME!!! I made an impromptu decision to go on the Sindbad Hot Air Balloon ride, and I am so glad that I did! The whole thing was very well organised, and was perfect in terms of timing and arrangement of transportation from the Nile cruise to the site where we were to depart on the hot air balloon from (very close to the Valley of the Kings) etc. Although I had some concerns in terms of safety, our Captain Mahmoud Badawy gave clear instructions on safety (do's and dont's, and landing position etc) before we entered the basket which gave me some assurance. There was also a video recorder on site, who recorded our whole journey for those who wanted to purchase a DVD of the experience. On the ride, Captain Mahmoud pointed out the various sites that we were passing over and our altitude whilst he was still controlling the balloon, which helped so that we knew what we were looking at rather than just trying to guess what we were looking at amongst each other, and also informed us when we should look out for the sunrise (we started our ride at dusk). Mahmoud also gladly answered questions from all the passengers (including one very inquisitive guy, who was quickly becoming the guy whose mouth I wanted to tape shut). The whole ride took approximately 45 mins from take off to landing (which was very smooth), which gave me just enough time to take tonnes of photos of the breathtaking views of the Valley of the Kings on one side and the Nile on the other. As we were approaching the ground, all the ground personnel (some 15 men or so) were already waiting to help weigh the balloon down as soon as we touched down (to avoid drag). The whole experience (from the Nile cruise to the ride and back to the cruise) took approximately 2 hours and 40 mins, which was convenient, as I had an early start at 8:30 am to visit the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut Temple with my tour company. All in all, would recommend it, and would definitely do it again. Thank you Sindbad Hot Air Balloons!!!

Amazing, but so quick! We went on a Sindbad hot air balloon ride on the West Bank, while visiting Luxor in August 2014. A Sindbad bus picked us up from our hotel at 5am and took us to the banks of the Nile, where we crossed over in a small boat and were picked up by another bus on the West Bank that drove us to the launching site. We went up smoothly, and the views with the sun coming up were absolutely breathtaking. We hovered over/around Hatshepsut temple and the Ramesseum and got some beautiful photos. You can also see the division of the green from the nile and the desert really well from so high up. My only two complaints - it was very quick, and it wasn't really a 'ride over the valley of the kings' as advertised, we just hovered around the same place. I thought we'd tmove a bit and see different things. I would recommend contacting Sindbad directly and getting a good price - we booked through our tour guide and got massively ripped off. We paid 700LE each when other people on the same balloon told us they had paid 400LE each.

Beautiful Experience Went on my first Hot Air Balloon ride at sunrise with Sinbads in Luxor. The team at Sinbads are incredible. They explained all of the safety information to us clearly and answered all the questions that were being asked of them. The ride itself was incredible, they picked us up early enough so that we would actually see the sunrise. the view from up there is incredible. we were also lucky enough to have the wind change and take us past the valley of the kings over the village and right over the Nile River. The sun rising over the Nile is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

Amazing experience!! The pilot was really good and kept us entertained. Special thanks to our driver Adnan! He was on time for the pick up and really fun throughout the experience. The safari was great and he really made it fun and in control. Also, he showed patience and very helpful when he found out I have back to back activities. I will definitely do it again and I highly recommend Hot Air Ballone Dubai. Many thanks

Amazing experience highly recommended. Only one slight unhappiness, The driver who picked us up from the hotel, spent much of the journey texting on his phone which felt very unsafe. This was the only fault in the whole experience.
