We had a simply amazing and memorable experience, on our Hot Air Balloon trip over the Valley of the Kings in Luxor. This is a must do, if visiting this wonderful region of Egypt.

Balloon ride by Kings Valley and by the Nile. Very comfortable ride and safe. The pilot spoke English fluently and was friendly. They pick up from the hotels. Due to military installations nearby, the only cameras allowed are cell phone cameras.
