Following a safety briefing and introduction to your ground crew and pilot, you will rise gently into the still-dark sky. The tranquillity and beauty of the early-morning sun rising over the East Bank, illuminating the city of Luxor and surrounding mountains, is something you will never forget.
To the east you can see Karnak Temple greeting the morning sun, while adjacent in the west there’s the magnificent Hatshepsut Temple. You’ll see the Colossi of Memnon rise from the crop fields and, winds permitting; fly over the Ramesseum for an unrivalled aerial view of the complex. In the distance, the hidden Valley of the Queens rests peacefully in the mountains.
A support van and your landing crew will follow the flight and will be there to meet your landing and assist with disembarkation. Your hot-air balloon flight will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes, and you’ll be back at your hotel or cruise ship in time for breakfast and morning tour departures.

The flight was great but after being picked up at 5am, we waited on the boat to cross the Nile for almost a hour while numerous other boats left and we could seen balloons taking off. So we missed the sunrise. The flight itself was great.
