Full description
Your balloon adventure starts out with an early morning pick-up at your hotel. Then, head out before sunrise to the desert to begin a 4-hour adventure! You’ll float above the Arabian Desert for about an hour in the rising morning sun. In addition to seeing giant red sand dunes you’ll be on the lookout for camels, wild gazelles, vivid green oases, date farms, and the ever-changing shadows on the desert landscape. Keep an eye out for the mighty Arabian oryx in their natural habitat. Once you have landed, drive to a private desert conservation reserve and freshen up in the clean, private bathrooms. Get the opportunity to take a photo with a Peregrine falcon and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon, a fruit platter, and more.  After the end of this magical ride you’ll be transferred back to the city and dropped off at your hotel.

Despite corona and Ramadan everything went smoothly - from booking to the end. Especially, for the first time it is a must see, flying over the desert with beautiful view of the sunrise. Pickup on time in air conditioning bus. Also the drop on the way back went good. Balkon Ride as expected last for one hour. Afterwards nice ride with a safari jeep to the camp. Camp made delicious buffet, with opportunities to take Picture with falcons and riding camels. However the time at the camp were too short: only one hour. All in all nice experience especially for the first time. Thus 5 stars

Unfortunately, the start was a bit bumpy because the pick-up time was not clear at the beginning. The message comes here late, we were informed at the reception, because everything has to be coordinated first. We then received the email at 6:30 p.m. the previous evening. As uncertain as it initially seemed to us, it became more professional afterwards. We were looked after very well. The guides were all very open and friendly. Everything was explained to us in peace and we felt very well cared for. The balloon ride was unique. Especially in combination with the falcon show. Really great and recommendable.

We did this tour on 3 hours sleep and would not have missed it for the world. The peace and quite of the desert was fantastic. The pilot and the falconer were very professional and added to the experience. Breakfeast at the camp was a nice surprise and the food was terrific. The camel ride although sort was a treat and something completely different.
