Such an amazing experience provided by the team. Great communication throughout by the lead contact Shorouk. And the team on the ground were true professionals as well. Prepare for a wonderful sunrise experience.

Great experience to get to know the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon. I recommend taking the annex of the tour with a guided tour in Spanish to the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of the Queen.

Great experience - the atmosphere during the balloon flight is very special! Great organization and very competent tour guide. Had very good knowledge of German.

Amazing. You have to do the balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings. It was definitely the highlight of our Egypt trip.
