Fun but pricey experience compared to many others in the city. Prepare to be confused right up to take off time when experienced well trained pilots take over for drivers and ground crew. Pick up was jumbled but we and the others ultimately got to...More

Just thought I'd write that we took off before the other company and landed well after the other company. This tour also includes camel riding. I had a good time. It's pretty expensive though!

Compared to similar experiences in other countries Marrakech by Air is hugely overpriced with very basic breakfast. I was back in the hotel at 11am and paid 200 euros, was at least expecting a day trip. Driver and staff are friendly but I still wouldn’t...More

Basically, this amounts to a predawn pickup at your hotel, a comfortable ride to a compound where you have coffee or tea, board a balloon, land, get driven back to the compound, eat in a tent, ride to a place to ride camels, and go...More

I booked mine online & just presented the voucher. You can pay your driver on site in cash, though (another couple in our group did it this way). No card machine available so cash only for that option. Personally, I think... More

I don't think it'll be a problem but as the person below wrote, I'd let them know in advance. They help you in and out of the balloon as needed; it may actually be the pothole road that causes you more discomfort. Bear in... More
