      The best experience ever!!
      We have just got back from our trip to Morocco and our highlight was the hot air balloon ride we had with Youssef, he went above and beyond for us literally!! We made the trip from Agadir to Marrakech and he met us when we arrived in Marrakech and took us to the site, he made sure we were the first people there so we could take off first and get above the cloud safely to see sunrise, we took off about 10 minutes before all the other balloons and it was so personal with it just being me, my partner and Youssef in the basket, he was very informative and couldn’t be more helpful, it was one of the best experience of our life’s! I couldn’t recommend this company anymore! Some of the other balloons had 20 plus people in and we just don’t think we would have had as good as time as we did with it just being us! I’m scared of heights and he reassured me all the way through and made me feel comfortable! 5* review from us for sure 👌🏻 he was also a really good photographer!

      A must-do if in Marrakech
      Wow! This was a 1st class fun family activity. Simo picked us up (family of 5) at 06:15 this morning (2 April 2024). He was very friendly with excellent English and great driver. It took about 25 minutes to get to where we taking off from…. Tea or coffee and cake before lift-off and then we were away. Even those of us scared of heights loved it. A fantastic experience which will live long in the memory. So majestic and peaceful with magnificent views of the beautiful Atlas Mountains. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Very well organised and we had a fantastic morning. The breakfast at the end back on terra firma was most welcome and delicious. We would definitely come back - but next time we will do the earlier flight to see the sunrise (which means getting up nearer to 04:00😱)

      Excellent
      Our trip was perfect from start to finish. Yuosef was very informative and communication was excellent. We were picked up from our hotel which made the early start so much easier. We choose the small crowd balloon flight and there was 5 of us , so it made the experience much more personal. Would highly recommend to anyone even if you are nervous of heights like me. I was reassured and the trip was rounded off by catching the sunrise

      An amazing experience with the best balloon company!!!
      Thanks so very much to Youssef and his crew for an amazing and unforgettable experience with his balloon flight! It was sooooooo worth getting up early for it! Youssef collected us from our riad in the medina and drove us (very carefully!) to the desert outside Marrakech, where we watched an incredible sunrise. We were able to watch the balloon being inflated and then… up, up and away! A truly magical experience, floating high above the desert, with views as far as the eye could see - gliding towards Marrakech city and the High Atlas Mountains covered in snow, with the Black Mountains behind us. Youssef was a really expert pilot, we flew really high and really far, there were other balloons but we were so glad we chose this company. When we landed, the car was ready and waiting to take us back to the launch site where we had a delicious breakfast, and then Youssef brought us back to our hotel. We were also really happy to hire the photography group he works with, looking forward to the drone photos and videos of our flight! All the guys were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommended

      Amazing views with a courteous and passionate balloon pilot
      Yousuf was incredibly kind and accommodating on our balloon ride and was capable of relaying instructions in multiple languages! The views were spectacular, and I would argue that one of the prettiest sunrises can be observed 2000ft above the ground in this companies balloon. Cheers guys

      Unforgettable Hot Air Balloon Ride in Marrakech - BallooningExperience.com
      Had an incredible hot air balloon ride in Marrakech with Youssef as our pilot. His expertise and friendly demeanor made the journey seamless and enjoyable. The small group setting added a personal touch, and the views of the Atlas Mountains were breathtaking. Youssef's commitment to safety and the post-flight Moroccan breakfast made it an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!

      Sunrise hot air ballon trip
      We went on a sunrise balloon trip with Youssef, it was magical. Youssef is very welcoming, punctual, and knowledgeable about the hot air balloon world. The views were absolutely magical, the weather was amazing, a bit sunny and with some chill. We went up to 1000m above sea level and felt completely safe! We also had an authentic Moroccan breakfast at the camp. Just wonderful!

      Balloon Ride in Marrakesh
      The organization of the event was really professional with pick up at the hotel, very kind drivers, the experience of seeing the balloons inflation in the dark was impressive. Now! The ballon ride was fantastic! The pilot of the balloon was very experienced and provide us a smooth flight, searching for points of interest. At the end with the breakfast of local food. Very good experience for all of us!

      Wonderful Experience of Lifetime!!!
      We were picked up from our Riad by Yusuf at 6:00am. There were 5 adults who went on the Hot Air Balloon ride on October 18th in Marrakech. It was a small 8 person basket, which means not as crowded, so better photos!! This was our first time experience. Some of us had some reservations. But Yusuf made our sunrise balloon ride very comfortable and fearless. He took his sweet time. We were in the air almost for an hour. He was a wonderful and humorous guy. I highly recommend his service.

      Experience of a lifetime!
      This was the best experience we have had while in Marrakech. Our guide and driver Youssef was outstanding, so informative and a lovely person. Would 100% recommend this if you are in Marrakesh, they pick you up from your hotel and take you on the trip then have breakfast with your group. This tour has smaller baskets which means it’s not as crowded so better photos!! Traditional Moroccan breakfast was brilliant.

      BEST BALLOON RIDE IN MERRAKESH
      Where do I start it was amazing start to finish. My sister and I were picked up right outside the door of our riad by youseff. We were drove by 4x4 to our balloon ,where we were giving tea/coffee to start. They do smaller baskets making the experience even better and getting to see everything at a very comfortable angle, other company's baskets looked over crowded.youseef was so informative and was a great photographer,lol He did not rush our ride and we spent so much time in the air,over an hr. After we landed ,we were taking for a beautiful traditional moroccan breakfast and then after returned back to our riad. I recommend ballooning experience 100% ,youseff made it feel so personal and was the best trip and guide we have had in merrakesh. Worth every cent. Going home with very happy experiences

      Hospitality and personel experience with Youssef
      One of the most rewarding highlights of this year for my family. Youssef is a very dedicated kind guide and balloon captain. He picked us up from the main square on time. And he is very clear in his communication. His understanding off safety hospitality and service is shown in all the details. And has been made this from beginning to end a lovely comfortable experience. We lift off in our balloon in a group of 7 ( max 10) instead off the 25/30 cattledrive in one baskett other operaters prefer. And yes that makes it a big difference. Other balloons fly around 30 to 40 minutes while we where one of the first to leave the ground and gently landed again 58 minutes later. My son and daughter felt nervous in advange but Youssef really reassure them. The costs are a bit higher compared to other operaters but it is such a different more exclusive experience. Youssef even surpassed expectations with a birthday cake for my daughter

    A well organized excursion, I am so happy I decided to book this sunrise balloon ride with this group. Seamless planning as we received communication through emails, WhatsApp messages on the exact time of our pick up and delivery back to our hotel. The view from above was breathtaking and our ride ..smooth. Our tour guides displayed a well coordinated effort with teams on the ground to ensure our safe landing. Once safely on the ground, we were surprised with a meal fit for royalty.

    A definite do-over for me should I ever visit the region again.

    An extraordinary experience thanks to Youssef who took great care of us throughout this activity and who allowed us to see a magnificent sunrise over the Moroccan mountains.
    Everything was perfect, small basket which allows everyone to enjoy the landscape. We leave with memories in our eyes!!
