Fantastic experience. Brilliantly organised. Staff couldn’t do enough for us for the trip from pick up to drop off. Bucket list worthy to see sunrise etc from the balloon.You don’t have to do Camel ride if not your thing. The price is worth it just...More

The experience was amazing! I would do it again! The only clarification I would add is that this is not an Atlas Mts Balloon ride as the description says. You will ride about 10-15k out of Marrakech and launch from there back towards the city....More

This was truly a great experience. I had never been on a hot air balloon before and was a tad nervous, but the pilot Maria was very professional (and funny) and it felt like a very safe flight. The Berber breakfast was lovely as well,...More
