Let the sunrise unveil the magical city of Luxor and all of its splendor with this unforgettable hot air balloon ride.
Imagine floating through crisp Egyptian blue skies as dawn rises over the city of Luxor. A hot air balloon ride is by far the most magical way to see the world's largest open air museum. This activity is all about beauty and comfort.
Your friendly local guide will pick you up from your hotel in the early morning. You will drive to the balloon area in the West Bank where a light breakfast and comforting tea awaits. After a safety briefing and introduction to your ground crew and pilot, you will climb into the balloon's basket and prepare for lift off. Gently rising into the sky, the scale and grandeur of Luxor's monuments will be revealed. The sunrise over the ancient city of Thebes- its River Nile, Karnak Temple, and Hatshepsut Temple- is a once in a lifetime sight. Breathe in the unique quiet moment away from the crowds and desert heat as you drift peacefully over the West Bank.
The early morning sun rising over the East Bank will illuminate the entire city and surrounding mountains. This private tour is perfect for a romantic occasion or meaningful moment with friends and family. As you softly land back onto the ground you will feel rejuvenated and at peace.
This tour begins at 4:00 AM in the summer and 5:00 AM in the winter
