Full description
Enjoy a 50-minute hot air balloon over the Valley of the Kings, the world’s most important archaeological site, lit up by the changing colors of the sunrise. Watch as the balloon begins to stand up and board with the assistance of the ground crew. After a gentle takeoff, you’ll become one with the wind and lose the sensation of motion. Get lost in the tranquility of ballooning, disturbed only by the noise of the burners.  

Take in breathtaking views of Luxor and all its ancient temples and tombs. See the lives of farmers and other locals as you glide over fields where people irrigate their land, gather crops, and care for their animals. To ensure all passengers have an equal opportunity to see and snap some amazing photos, the pilot will be sure to rotate the balloon during the flight. Finally, your guide will teach you the proper landing position and land expertly in an empty field or desert.
