So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the centre of Dubai! (Burj Khalifa) We collect you from your hotel within the urban area of Dubai or a specified meeting point and transfer you to the desert, where you'll enjoy a one hour flight. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down, you will be transfered to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

wOw! What an amazing adventure my husband and I had! We met our team at the Dubai Outlet Mall at 5:30 a.m. and were at the takeoff site by 6:00. After a brief safety session, we were able to see the balloons get fired up to be set afloat. Our captain who was from New Zealand (I forgot his name.)... More

I went solo as my husband and son were not too keen on the wee hours and height. During the booking process, queries were being responded to quickly. My pickup time was 5:35am from the Sheraton Grand Dubai - it was prompt and a safe drive to the take-off site. Beware though, the drive itself and the balloon ride is... More
