From lift off to landing, there’s no experience that quite rivals that of a hot air balloon journey over Luxor as the sun rises across the desert. Soak in the sounds and sights of the city as you slowly ascend to enjoy inspiring views of the Valley of the Kings, the majestic Nile River and many of Egypt’s most famous ancient structures. Essentially, this once-in-a-lifetime experience is a visit to the world’s largest air museum. Those taking this optional tour will be picked up by an air-conditioned van to the marina and embark a motorboat to cross the Nile, where guests will be transported to the balloon launch site. After landing, you’ll be driven to reconnect with the group to continue the day’s itinerary.
