Magic! A memorable flight that leaves very beautiful memories. Special mention to Mr Ibrahim for the organization and his good humor! Only small "flat" for GetYourGuide, on the activity page (web page), it is noted in the highlights "Admire the skyscrapers and the roofs of the city of Dubai"; so, a few roofs in the desert ok, but nothing to do with the skyscrapers or the city, which we don't even see a little.

it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our driver explained everything on the way and it really enhanced our experience. I would definitely be recommending this to any visitors who are coming to Dubai. While up on the balcony the pilot was very comforting to all passengers and made sure everyone was at ease. Top class from start to finish

This experiencing was AMAZING! A hot air balloon ride is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. What better place to do it than Dubai, watching the sun rise. The team ensured we were versed on the landing technique & provided confidence in a safe trip. I love the ocean & this provided the same type of peacefulness. Would definitely recommend!

Forget all camel safaris and other such tourist amusements. This silence and the floating with the balloon over the desert and the sunrise, this atmosphere when the balloons inflate in the dark is indescribable.

This was amazing!! Highly recommend. From an easy pickup to a smooth to and unforgettable flight, this is a tour you shouldn’t miss! Thank you to the whole team who made this magical.
