Overview

So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the center of Dubai! (Burj Khalifa) We collect you from your hotel within the urban area of Dubai or a specified meeting point and transfer you to the desert, where you'll enjoy a one hour flight. Fly with falcons as you watch a world-first demonstration from the balloon 3000ft in the air and watch these magnificent creatures soar around the balloon. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down, you will be transferred to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

Our trip this morning with Balloon Adventures Dubai was a joint birthday present celebrating a total of 136 years. It certainly was the trip of two lifetimes! The excitement of seeing the sunrise over the Arabian Desert more than compensated for getting up at 04.00....More

Hi Jm, There is an age restriction of 5 years old. The main reason is that children under this age are too small for the basket and cannot see over along with the safety reasons.
