It's a really awesome experience to have a view like this of the dubai desert during the sunrise. The tea and the coffee are really needed at that early hours. I will definitely do it again!!
Spectacular sunrise over the Dubai desert

We had a great balloon ride today with a spectacular sunrise over the Dubai desert.

Our driver Salman Haider was reliable and very attentive. We felt very safe! He picked us up from the hotel on time and needed us back quickly after the balloon ride.

We can absolutely recommend the balloon ride at SINDBAD Gulf Balloons and even say that a balloon ride is part of every visit to Dubai.

Everyone takes this nature experience home with them and will still be talking about it years later.
Amazing experience with amazing staff

We had an amazing morning watching the sunrise over the desert. Everything was explained so well and went so smoothly. Our captain kept everyone at ease throughout and was not only very funny but so confident at what he was doing there wasn’t a worry in anyone’s mind. Our landing was so smooth and it couldn’t have any better. The crew looking after the balloon were also so friendly and funny it was all around an enjoyable experience. My partner did however feel a little sick once we got back into the car and our driver Amir was so nice pulling over and waiting until he felt better and even texting after to make sure he felt better. Thanks so much, we’ll definitely recommend it as a must so visiting Dubai.
Best sunrise experience

A very well organized experience. The hot air balloon ride was amazing and the pilot was very funny and professional; lamding was the hardest part but he prepared us well. Breakfast was great with fresh food.
A must to do experience - Hot Air Balloon!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our once in a lifetime experience of Hot Air Balloon with Sindbad in association with Platinumlist. Thanks to the entire team especially Ms. Helen, Mr. Ibrahim, Mr. Nasir, Captain of our Balloon and all others who supported on ground and ensured our safety.
Awesome experience and great customer service

The best of this tour is to see the sunrise in the desert... the landing was a little complicated, the tour was nice. They cancelled my tour twice because the weather, affortunately for me I had enough time to change the date.

Wow Factor at Sunrise
JAHayward, 11-12-2022
What a wow factor to the trip, early morning for the start of a thrilling time, from watching the drone show after the safety formalities, to watching the balloon inflate and then to experience lift off and watching the sunrise over the desert, my teenage sons thoroughly enjoyed the experience although I was a little nervous as not great with heights but was glad to have experienced the morning with my sons
Once in a lifetime amazing ride to watch the sunset over the Dubai desert. Would recommend to everyone visiting Dubai.

It was my first time to be in a hot air balloon and the experience was remarkable. Mr. Ibrahim was very professional and friendly to all of us and he ensured that the ride will be memorable, amazing and safe. The rest of the crew was also very wonderful, including Mr. Saqib who picked us up and dropped after the ride. Overall, the experience is truly memorable. Highly recommended!

Bucket list ticking experience
rowlands1893, 15-01-2023
Early morning but most deffinetly worth it!
Got picked up by our driver and he was very nice and professional.
Had a safety briefing that put everyone to ease with what we needed to do and when along with what not to do.
Then we got up in the air and had an excellent bucket list ticking experience with plenty of selfie opportunity's and breathtaking views for roughly an hour before coming down for a "Funny English Landing" you will understand if you go...
100% would recommend
