My hot-air balloon experience
5 / 5
Sonia , 19 Apr 2023
Hot-air balloon tour in Luxor is truly an unforgettable experience. From start to finish, everything was perfectly organized and I felt completely safe and comfortable throughout the entire tour. We arrived at the launch site just before sunrise, and the sight of the balloons being inflated against the backdrop of the Valley of the Kings was absolutely breathtaking. Once we were up in the air, the view was even more spectacular - we could see the temples of Luxor and Karnak, the Colossi of Memnon, and the Nile River stretching out in all directions. The pilot was extremely skilled and knowledgeable, pointing out important landmarks and providing fascinating commentary on the history and significance of each site. The flight was smooth and peaceful, and we were able to float over the ancient ruins and temples for almost an hour. The experience was well worth the early wake-up call, and I felt extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to see Luxor from such a unique and breathtaking perspective.
