This was a wonderful experience flying over the valley of the kings. However I wish some tourists would not spoil it for others using their selfie stick. The views were spectacular and I felt very safe with this company. Nice to do in winter.

It was a great smooth experience and my wife and myself enjoyed every minute of it. Good value as we were one of the first balloons into the air but the last to finish having well over an hour in the air. The captain was very informative about what we could see and turned the balloon around regularly making sure... More

My husband and I have done the balloon ride before with our children but have never done it together so decided to treat ourselves. We booked through an agent with magic horizon and were not disappointed. Well worth the 4 am start. Excellent experience from start to finish. Would definitely recommend captain Bob and his crew. They all showed true... More

My wife and parents did this and we all loved it! It'll be an early start (depending on where your hotel is, 2-3 AM). We were on the east side of the Nile, so we had to take a car, to a boat (on which they provided food), and then drive to the launch site. You'll get there in time... More

Not as good as expected. It could be a lot better if going over Valley of the Kings which is right next to the site. Going over the slums and city is pointless and waste of money. $100 per person is not worth it.
