Full description
Travel via air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel to the West Bank of Luxor where your trip begins. After listening to the safety instructions, hop into the hot air balloon’s basket and get ready for lift off. Rise up into the sky and enjoy a bird’s eye view of Luxor at sunrise. See the city from an entirely different perspective. If you have selected the option for just the hot air balloon and transfer, once your ride is finished, you will be dropped back off in Luxor. If you selected the option with the semi-private West Bank visit, you'll begin your lovely half-day tour in Luxor, covering Hatshepsut and the Valley of the Kings. Listen to the history behind some of the hotspots from your Egyptologist tour guide after floating back down to earth. Visit the Valley of the Kings, home to some of Egypt’s most enchanting pharaonic temples and royal tombs. Behold the spectacular tombs of Kings Ramesses III, Ramesses VI, and Merneptah. Here you will also have the option to explore the tomb of King Tutankhamun.  Visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only known Egyptian female ruler who reigned for 20 years. Next, make your way to the Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III and marvel at the gates Colossi of Memnon. Finally, enjoy a delicious lunch from a local restaurant before being transferred back to your accommodation. Extra attraction tickets are necessary and are not included in the price; you can add them from the add-on list at booking.

Nice activity! The flight is going great! The view is beautiful! Then the visit of the sites before the arrival of all the tourists is really very good! Too bad our guide, who seemed very nice to us at first, was a tourist hunter! We thought we'd make a visit out of the kindness of luxor but we found ourselves going from luxury shops to luxury shops of perfumes, papyrus, jewellery! And it was absolutely necessary to buy to be freed from it! So beware of too nice guides who offer you extras

This was a bucket list experience: absolutely breathtaking!! The hot air balloon pilot was very skilled and the landing was perfect. Our Egyptologist Mahmoud was very competent, polite and friendly! The best tour we had so far in Egypt!

Amazing. You have to do the balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings. It was definitely the highlight of our Egypt trip.
