What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

Amazing experience. Arrived just as balloons being inflated. Just time for a coffee and off we went. Pierre put us at ease. All but one of our group had flown before but we were talked through everything that was about to happen. No rush getting in and out of balloon basket - the ground crew were also amazing. It was a new experience for me to fly amongst other balloons and views were lovely. No actual sunrise on our flight but the calmness was very relaxing. Nice gentle landing followed by a generous breakfast of tea, juice, bread, eggs, pancakes and yoghurt. All in all a lovely way to start the day. X

What an amazing experience! Everything was so organized and professional. The ride itself was beautiful and breakfast was great too. Our driver, Ashaf, was also amazing - super friendly, knowledgeable, and helped ease any nerves before the flight. We had the best time thanks to Ashaf, our pilot, and the rest of the crew. Can’t think of a better way to see Marrakech and the surrounding desert and mountains!

There was a little delay and confusion at the pick up, but everything else was fantastic. We felt safe, the staff was super friendly, and the view was like a dream. That was the perfect closure for our trip to Morocco.
