Overall a fantastic expereince that I highly recommend to amyone visiting Dubai. The hotel pick up and drive to the desert was wonderful and made even better with the driver, Kundal, a real pro...who also took some pictures and videos for me of the hot air ballon taking off. And speaking of the take off, the pilot was a real pro and eveyone felt safe throughout the trip.

We can only recommend the balloon ride as it was an unforgettable experience for us. Pick up was seamless, our driver was super friendly and we learned a lot about Dubai on the round trip. It didn't look good at the beginning, as dense fog had formed over Dubai and also at the originally planned launch site. But the situation was professionally informed, the starting point was relocated and our tour was able to start as planned. In our case, the fog even turned out to be a blessing, because of the thermals, our balloon ride lasted over 70 minutes. The balloon pilot was extremely competent and told/explained just as much. Can only recommend the seller.

Easy booking, easy arrangements. Only slightly negative part is the changing early pick-up which was because of other passengers from not so nearby areas. Welcome at the departure site, instructions, flight itself, landing, everything just perfect! Can only recommend the balloon ride as such, and Sindbad as the provider of the tour!
