We start your balloon experience by picking you up from your hotels within the urban areas of Luxor, flights taking off around sunrise. The exciting and charming aspect of ballooning is that you always know where you take off, but you never know where we will land. The direction and speed depends on the wind; the pilot can fly higher and lower by means of the burners. Upon landing, Pilot will distribute a memorable certificate.
