It was my first hot air ballon ride, and I choose the perfect package and service provider for it. Communication was easy and prompt. Transport was punctual and in a nice vehicle. We always felt safe and taken care of. We travelled with our 7 yrs old daughter and she loved the falcon experience, camel and horse back ride, and there was even free henna tattoos, which made her so happy. The breakfast buffet was nice. Seating area had a lot of ambience of a Bedouin tent. Really enjoyed it. I can only recommend it.

That was an amazing experience from the beginnig to the end! The views were breathtaking, it was absolutely worth all the money. Everything was well organized, shortly after I booked the tour, Ms. Pinal Chauhan reached out to us and helped us with everything. We were picked up on time by an excellent driver, Zaman. Our flight was accompanied by a falcon - his owner told us a lot about this fascinating bird. We loved every minute of the baloon flight. Thank you so much!

It is really a beautiful experience to view the sunrise from this event. Good hospitality and a humorous captain adds to the charm. You get to a height higher than Burj Khalifa and you get about an hour and a half in the sky. After that a pleasant breakfast along with Camel and Horse ride.
