We had an amazing time! An absolute must do for those visiting Marrakech. The whole trip was managed perfectly and we were so well looked after. The pilot is fantastic and has a great sense of humour! We loved the berber breakfast and camel ride too. Worth every penny :)

Although it was a late decision by us to do a balloon flight, Marrakesh by Air did a great job: a driver was organized to pick us up very early and bring us to the campsite where the balloons would start. It was pitch dark at arrival but the scenery of burning torches and a Berber tent where we were greeted with fresh coffee and a very tasty fresh croissant made our day. The staff was very professional and although very busy at launching 4 balloons they informed us what was going to happen and introduced us to the captain Wafia, a very skilled and certified , multi lingual (English, Dutch, French, Arabic) pilot who flew us at a flight level of 1500 meters. We felt extremely safe by all measures taken and needless to say that the landing was one of the smoothest ever. Within half an hour after landing we were brought back to the campsite were we hade a great breakfast after which we were brought back to Marrakesh. In short compliments to Hamid and his team for providing such a great experience.

Great way to see Moroccon from the air and is worth the early start. The closer you stand to the burner the warmer you will be in the basket. The camel ride is in a seperate place and was more comfortable than I anticipated. Wear sensible foot attire like hiking boots or trainers and layer up although I was not cold.

Perfect from start to finish.
We received phone call day before to confirm pick up time. Driver was on time, very polite, well mannered, funny and professional (would recommend for other trips as well)
When we get to the balloon start point we had amazing coffee with cardamom and chocolate croissant.
Hot air balloon flight was breath taking. Totally worth the money, take a minute put your phone down and enjoy the view, it’s so peaceful and relaxing, music was matching the filling for sure. Our pilot was so nice, answered every question, he just knew what he is doing.
Breakfast was simple with tasty Moroccan mint tea.
Camel ride was so funny,
This camels know what they are doing ;)
All trip was just great
Truly recommended ❤️

The experience in the balloon was amazing and very well organized. Very professional. It’s just not over the mountains but far away with the mountains at the horizon.
Camel ride can be skipped, because it’s not worth to do it in this region.

One of the best experience I’ve had! It was amazing breathtaking! It’s a bit pricey but definitely worth it. Went up 1,400 feet. The view was breathtaking and to watch the sunrise! Our pilot Wafia she was an absolute gem thank you so much

I won't lie - it was ***early*** but definitely worth it. Had never done this before so I was apprehensive about the whole "up in a balloon" situation but the captain made the whole trip brilliant, literally (as the sun came up over the Atlas) and figuratively (as she started playing "here comes the sun" just as the sun crested the mountains. She also made for a very smooth ride and a very smooth landing, and yes, *she* which made it even more awesome and i think made my daughter really take notice. Way to go Captain Wafia!! <3 The coffee and pastries before was a bit chaotic (but it might have been just the ridiculously early morning) and the breakfast after seemed rushed, but it didn't detract. Transport to and from the ride was smooth and comfortable and the guys at Marrakesh by Air were on organizing the pickup and drop off.

My only quibble was that we were supposed to go into one balloon (one with a smaller basket) only to be pulled out and moved to one with more people at the very last minute and with no explanation which was somewhat annoying. The camel ride was... it was a camel ride in what amounted to a suburban field of palm trees pretty much in a circle on the side of the road. On the other hand, we paid for the balloon ride, the "camel ride" was mostly a very cheap addon and if you don't have another chance to get close to camels, this is as good an opportunity as any.

We did very much enjoy our experience and would do it again in a second.

First time on a hot air balloon but everything was so amazing. From the pick up to the drop off all
Members of the staff were amazing. The breakfast was great and did its job yummy. It was a bit cold but the great staff and amazing views was worth it. The pilot was great and funny plus played great music. The breakfast when we returned with the amazing Moroccan tea was so great. Next was the camel ride and same great hospitality from the staff. One added bonus is all the staff always offers to take your photos and lots of them so you can choose the best. It was such a surreal experience and I will
Never forget it.
