An experience not to be missed. To float silently over the desert and see the sun rise through the mists sourounding the mountains is a memory for life. The event was well organized and the pilot was safe but entertaining. Equipment was in excellent condition. The pilot told me the company never buys second hand equipment. Be ready for an early start with an hotel pickup around 5am. On landing at you will be treated to a light breakfast in a traditional tent. It's not particularly cheap but do it if you can afford it, you won't regret the experience. Ian

We LOVED it! Just don’t look directly down from the edge of the balloon if you’re scared of heights, Look at the sky! The whole team was amazing that day. 10/10.

I really enjoyed the overall experience. We got to see the magnificent sunrise from up there. The driver Mr.Hamada was very professional and kept time.
