Hot-Air Balloon Ride in Luxor
Experience the majestic beauty of some of Ancient Egypt's most popular sights from a unique view point - the air! Gently float over the valley of the kings in Luxor with your professional and very experienced hot-air balloon pilot.
Our hot air balloon tour of Luxor starts by picking you up from your Luxor hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned min-bus and take you to our highly-vetted air ballooning partners who have a long-standing fantastic safety record. You'll board your hot-air balloon with fellow passengers and a very experienced pilot as you prepare to take to the skies!
As your pilot ignites the burners, great flames will heat the air inside the large balloon above you and you'll start to gently lift, floating higher and higher into the sky. The views from the skies are unmissable and definietly worth reaching for your camera - maybe even warranting a cheeky selfie to gloat or just capture the romantic experience.
You'll float over the valley of the kings and Luxor's most beautiful sights including farmland and the Nile.
For a period of nearly 500 years from the 11th century to the 16th, the Valley of the Kings lied hidden in the West Bank of Luxor with a very special purpose - to bury the Pharohs and ruling class of Egypt in magnifient tombs dug into the desert bedrock.
Great lengths were taken to hide the exhistance of these beautifully decorated tombs - laden with treasure and sometime sacrafices, everything the occupant would need in the after-life - however throughout the thousands of years that passed, eventually they were almost always found and plundered.
After approximately 45 minutes in the skies you'll safely descend, landing in the remote farmlands nearby, where a team of experts will assist your landing and disembarking There's also usually a crowd of local children waiting below to see the spectacle.
Our hot-air ballooning experience in Luxor is a must do, the views are unmissable and it's a very romantic experience.
