  • We were fortunate enough to catch one of the last Hotair Balloon rides for the season. They picked us up around 3:30 am. It took us around 40 minutes of travel time to get to the site. Glad we had Cap...  more »
  • Incredible experience from start to finish. The day before the Balloon Adventures team contacted us to confirm the time we should be at the hotel reception. The transfer was punctual and led us to the point of the tour. Upon arriving there, we were directed to our group and received explanations of how the tour would be, as well as safety instructions. The ride was amazing and seeing the sunrise in the middle of the desert is an indescribable experience. After the tour, we were taken to have breakfast in a campsite, delicious breakfast and then taken back to our hotel. The attention of the whole team was incredible, the captain who was with us then, nor speak. Explaining everything, both the technical part and the tour and landscapes. It's worth it!!!!

  • The best experience ever. The sunrise was awesome. Highly recommended. I booked through their website, but I heard you can get discounts from several travel agents.
  • An excellent experience from beginning till the end! From the minute we were picked up by crew member Nikki, it was 5 star all the way. Capt Hylke was our balloon captain. A stready, calm, reassuring man he made the experience for the passengers an unforgettable one. It was clear that safely and passenger enjoyment were a priority for this captain. What a fantastic asset Nikki and Capt Hylke are for Balloon Advebtures Emirates! The extra special vintage Land Rover ride to breakfast just sealed the deal on a perfect morning. Breakfast was one of the best I’ve ever had! Big selection of drinks and an an exotic assortment of food. Will definitely use this company again! Best experience in Dubai!
  • I visit first time ever really great Experiance
  • To float over the desert at sunrise in a hot air balloon with a Falcon demonstration whilst flying is a once in a lifetime experience, it was mind blowing. We left bright and early, picked up at the hotel and delivered to the desert to embark on our flight. The crew take care of everything and you just need to hop up into the basket and fly away! You basically feel you are in the middle of the desert (even through 40 mins from Dubai), you are surrounded by the sand dunes and the beautiful sunrise. The weather was perfect! As you float in the sky with a couple of other balloons the pictures you will capture will surprise you! Sometimes you need to pinch yourself. Part way through the flight, the baby Falcon takes off around the balloon, and lands back on the basket, I was lucky enough for him to land directly in front of me, it was amazing!! The landing is quite a surprise and I will leave this for you to experience, but definitely exhilarating! We then jumped in the bus for a desert drive of a lifetime, thank you to our bus driver who was an expert at handling the bus in the desert:-) The morning ended with a quick desert ride in a vintage Land Rover to experience breakfast with the crew in an authentic environment. A huge thank you to the team and especially to Richard (our pilot) and Marie (Falcon handler) for this opportunity, it was very well coordinated and no waiting around, definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to experience something unique in Dubai.
  • Bad customer service over the phone , need serios training !!
