Our group of 14 did a sunrise balloon ride over the temples of Hatchepsout, Ramses II and the colosses of Memnon. As the sun rose, the fog over the Nile lifted and the views were magnificent. We could even hear workers in sugar cane fields. The service included pick-up at the dock and the drive back. No champagne glass at the end, but the views made the ride the experience of a lifetime.


Amazing experience with Hatem … our amazing tour guy gave us amazing information throughout the tours . The balloon experience was amazing … amazing views .


I booked this tour without checking my distance from the hotel I was staying Cairo and found out I was 10 hours away driving, imposible for me to get to this great experience. I contacted Heba and the customer service I received I can give them a 10 star. replied quickly, and helped me get my refund back quick even that I booked for the activity in les than 24hrs. I really appreciate all the help, recommend since I can tell they are responsible and honest people. Hopefully I can return one day and I’ll make sure I visit Luxor to take this tour. Blessings!!


I was in Cairo for 2 days and i booked a last minute craziness for this journey by going on hot air balloon… til i realized with talking with Heba, the person for the company Egypt Gift Tours that i was 10 HOURS away by train from Luxor or one hour by flight. I had not enough time so i had to cancel and Viator was very long to refund me until Heba got involved and i was refunded right away. DEFINITELY a company and a person to reach out to if ever you are in the area! Amazing service, amazing communication, if i come back i will definitely use this company to book a expedition! Just this overview of the customer service tells me how great their expeditions must be!


A MUST DO while in Egypt! Beautiful hot air balloon, well coordinated, very safe, and views that your eyes won’t believe. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Pilot was amazing, very well educated. Highly recommend this tour specifically if you visit Luxor!


Excellent trip early in the morning. Witness the sunrise in the skies with a guide always punctual on every meeting point.


The most wonderful experience ! A very capable captain of the hot air ballon, the ride was very smooth with a beautiful view


I travel with my wife and 7 y/o daughter and the grandparents it's our third time to luxor together and our first ride in balloon (not last) they are very professional and committed with good timing the view of the west Bank and Hatschebsut temple from the sky and the sunrise from the sky is above magical and they made sure everything went fine and everyone was very happy. thanks a lot will surely do it again (with them) in my next visit and specially thanks for Mrs. Heba for her follow up and professionalism


It was an unforgettable experience!!! The takeoff at dawn with the "fired up" colorful balloons was a dream and the Valley of the Kings from above in the first rays of sun - indescribable! The organization was perfect from the booking to the balloon ride. Thank you very much.
