Soar serenely above the ancient city of Luxor on a 45-minute hot-air balloon. Gaze down at the mysteries of Egypt’s great open-air museum, and look at the temples and ruins on the banks of the Nile from a uniquely elevated position.
What to Expect
Enjoy an early morning hot-air balloon ride in the skies above Luxor, and get an alternative view of the great open-air museum. Following a pick-up from your hotel, or Nile cruise ship, you will be taken to the start point, and refreshed with a welcoming soft drink.
Rise gently into the sky and enjoy the cool and tranquility of the early morning, far away from the crowds. As the sun begins to rise, and from your lofty position sweeping serenely above the city and Nile Valley, you will be able to look down on the Valley of the Kings and Queens, the Karnak Temple, and the great Colossi of Memnon.
Admire the views for approximately 45 minutes, before your descent back to ground, where you will be transferred back to your hotel or cruise ship. The tour runs every day and includes breakfast and a guide who will point out some of Luxor’s greatest treasures as you float like a feather above them.
