I HIGHLY recommend this experience! We weren’t sure what to expect since it was our first time in a hot air balloon and it was in DECEMBER. We thought it would be very cold in the balloon since mornings in Marrakesh are very chilly. We also thought it would be very bumpy and windy with our hair flying everywhere. Quite the contrary! It was incredibly calm and smooth during all phases of the flight - like drifting on a cloud. And, it was not windy at all because we were floating with the wind current, not against it (we traveled over 15km!). As for the temp issue, although it was very cold when we left, but the heat of the gas burners kept us warm and comfortable! Finally, we weren't sure how many other balloons would be in the sky when we went up, but seeing 20-30 or more balloons around us was AWESOME! Our pilot - a Swiss gentleman with 30 years of experience and speaks 5 languages was excellent! Totally putting us at ease! A highlight of our trip to Morocco!

This was a great experience! We were picked up at 6:40 and made it in time to watch the sunrise as we took off. Gorgeous views, and a smooth experience all around

Was absolutely amazing. Everything was planned out perfectly, and is definitely a must do when in Marrakech. Our pilot was very informative.

What a magical experience, everything from the pick up to the actual air balloon was something out of a fairytale!

beautiful sunrise and pictures the pictures don't do it justice
