Hot Air Balloon Ride in Luxor

A hot air balloon ride over the West Bank in Luxor is an unforgettable experience. You take off at sunrise and begin by seeing the Hatshepsut temple carved into the cliff face. See the Ramesseum Temple, Medinat Habu temple and the Deir El Medina as you ascend further. Drift over the Nile, seeing small feluccas on their morning sailing. You usually are picked up at 03:00 to 04:00 depending on where you are staying. The flight lasts about 40 minutes and tea and coffee are served before you fly. Certainly a remarkable experience on your adventure to Egypt.
