For $N6500 there are much better experiences. A ballon flight over the dunes might seem a special experience, but no flying over dunes, yet in some of their marketing states that they do. Great marketing and speeches to get you excited and keep you excited....More

We flew with Sancho for 1 hour15 minutes to dune no. 1 and we enjoyed every minute!! So quiet, stunning views from above, smooth landing and a very nice and funny breakfast in the desert afterwards. Highly recommended 👌🏻!!!

Our guide, one of the partners, was charming well, informed and made you feel safe. Gave help when needed. Offered wondered commentary on the sights. Did not protect a space at breakfast for his group so we were all split up. My only complaint.

Eat breakfast in the largest restaurant in the world! It is well worth it! The peaceful ride was over wildlife and was completely safe. No telephone wires to run into on this flight as there are none!

It really is worth getting up so early and paying the price. You will never forget the experience. I have vertigo and was worried I' d crouch on the floor of the basket, but no problem at all! Very safe impression.
