We can only recommend the balloon ride as it was an unforgettable experience for us. Pick up was seamless, our driver was super friendly and we learned a lot about Dubai on the round trip. It didn't look good at the beginning, as dense fog had formed over Dubai and also at the originally planned launch site. But the situation was professionally informed, the starting point was relocated and our tour was able to start as planned. In our case, the fog even turned out to be a blessing, because of the thermals, our balloon ride lasted over 70 minutes. The balloon pilot was extremely competent and told/explained just as much. Can only recommend the seller.

Amazing experience! A must do when visiting Dubai. Once is a lifetime experience you won’t be disappointed it’s worth every dollar. Highly recommend this company they were very well organised and everything flowed really well. Very friendly and big thanks to Leo who looked after us and made sure we had the best experience

Employees very courteous. Pick up was exactly in the scheduled time. There was a very nice drone show during the wait for the balloon flight. Our balloon pilot, Altaras, was very funny and he did perfect flight and landing. The breakfast was delicious with so many options.

From pick up at 4am to drop off. Amazing experience. Highly recommend. Dune bashing wasn’t my favourite but it was fun. The hot air balloon was the highlight of my trip. They also ensure to catch sunrise unlike other companies who were late to fly. Best one hands down

Amazing experience ! Everything was just perfect from the start until the end. Highly recommend
