Words simply cannot describe that feeling of floating over the fields, ancient ruins and green fields! You have to experience it yourself. The views of the green fields in contrast to the mountains and ancient ruins are very beautiful! The Nile on the horizon in the fog is simply indescribable. I was very pleased with the ground security system and the team that provides the flight safety itself. And watching how the balloons are inflated, and then you have just 5 minutes to jump into the basket before they take off, it's worth a lot.
