A good experience
Enjoyed trip but not to expectations but there's a lot of man power to get the balloon airborn, so they have to be paid so I wouldn't grumble about overall package . Balloon ride was an experience, a bit scarey touching down and wear a hat. Camel ride could be longer and felt sorry for it as some big passengers
Experience of a lifetime
This is a must do in Dubai!
The staff at Sinbad Ballooning were friendly and very professional. We felt safe and in good hands the whole time.
Our driver Zakria was great with us and our 2 children. He took videos and photos for us and even provided an exciting 4wd dune driving experience with music to match.
Our balloon captain was highly skilled and even had us in the air for an extra 30mins to ensure we had a safe place to land.
The manager ensured everyone was happy and things ran smoothly. Even my email contact Helen was super helpful and replied to my emails quickly.
Would highly recommend!

You have to feel it

My memories will live on for ever

Excellent experience hot air balloon
Great experience well organised picked up and dropped off at our hotel
Was as described great driver all the people involved very helpful
Would definitely recommend
A once in a lifetime experience you can’t miss!
Our experience started off with fantastic customer service from the Sinbad Balloon company. My partner and I were unfortunate enough to experience a medical emergency upon arrival in Dubai. Although the cancellation time had elapsed and it was late notice, they were extremely understanding of our situation and let us delay the Balloon Flight experience 24 hours to accommodate our needs - I’m extremely grateful for this flexibility!
On to the experience…. I was cautious to pay such a large amount of money on such an expensive experience. In hindsight, I feel like the experience was great value for money. Not only is it a once in a lifetime experience watching sunrise over the desert in a balloon, but there’s a large amount of manpower and resources that go in to the operation - from the crew of 6-8 ground crew for each balloon (there were 3 balloons), to the pilots, chefs, camel and falconry experts and drivers…. It’s no small operation!
The Pilots seemed super experienced. My Captain - Captain Careem was knowledgeable and a true gentleman with vast experience and airmanship, having flown in Dubai since 2006! The safety briefing was thorough, with all passengers reaffirmed of the actions and responsibility on landing.
The food at breakfast was pleasant with options to cater for most dietary preferences. We had the option of a short Camel ride and falconry experience at our leisure.
All pickups were completed in good time and the driver was pleasant.
Thank you Sinbad Balloons for a fantastic experience!
Bucket list ticked!
Always wanted to try Hotair Balloon as my bucket list. The team was fantastic, though it took us a while to be in the air due to strong wind & no fault of theirs, absolutely enjoy the ride! Camel riding was another experience you should try. Overall very happy and satisfied with the experience! Should give them a try!
Best Ballooning Experience in Dubai
This is must do if visiting Dubai! Ibrahim and his team of pilots and staff are exceptional. It’s well organised with safety briefing before commencing, all served over a hot cup of tea early in the morning. The views are incredible, passing over the dunes, spotting camels and other desert wildlife, all against a backdrop of the moon and sunrise over a a stunning Oman mountain range. The journey completes with a Bedouin style breakfast, complete with camels and falcons. A great way to start the day, you won’t regret the early morning start. Special thanks to Pilot Bashir for his professionalism and his kindness to our youngest child - who was a little scared before the journey, to now, a ballooning convert!
Great experience. Sunrise from the sky is beautiful. Just little less people in the baloon would be for sure more comfortable
A very nice activity to enjoy while you're in Dubai
The people at Sindbad are really nice and helpful. We really enjoy the hot air balloon. They managed really well and they really pay attention into the safety details. After the hot air balloon, they also prepared breakfast, camel ride and taking pictures with the falcon. So its a complete activities to do with your family
must-do in Dubai
a must-do experience in Dubai. The staff is very kind and they take care of everything. The view on from the baloon is really amazing and worth to wake up so early
I am totally amazed by this tour!!! Let me start with the fact that they pick you up in a luxury car super clean, beautiful music abroad and a fantastic, professional and polite driver!!!
Once we arrived to the camp, we were briefed about the safety rules.
Our Capitan was Mr. Smiley from Egypt, he is the best pilot ever, he took us to see the sunrise and mesmerizing views of the infinite desert, he took well care of all of us and made us laugh during the flight.
The breakfast is delicious
The team deserves 5 stars!!
This tour is a MUST while in Dubai.

A must do while in Dubai. The view is absolutely beautiful from above and it’s such a peaceful and relaxing experience. Mehdi is very kind and reliable. I highly recommend.

Wonderful staff! Amir is very friendly and kind. Most importantly they’re knowledgeable and go above and beyond to welcome you and make you feel comfortable. Thanks
Great experience! Mehdi, our driver, was friendly and explained how the experience would happen very well. The balloon ride was breathtaking and so relaxing. The other activities were fun and it gave our group a chance to know one another. Highly recommend!
Great driver and ballin experience
Amir picked us up in our build fully on time and was a kind driver along the journey. The balloon experience was incredible and the pilots landing was smooth and enjoyable.

This was an amazing experience. The team were very safety conscious , from
signing a form to how to get in and out the basket etc . The pilot was professional at all times and has a lot of knowledge.
The place where we had breakfast was nice, good to eat outside and the food was very good and plenty of it.
Re the camel ride I did expect a ride out to the desert, it was only around the paddock a few times .
Falconry, again in my mind I thought we were going to see the bird fly and in action , rather than just having the bird sit on your arm and have photos taken .
Excellent Hot air balloon,beautiful view and the trip was smooth, Only one thing the breakfast was very poor food.
What a lovely morning and breathtaking ballooning experience we had! The ground staff were all very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The captain ensured that everyone in the basket had equal opportunity for 360 degree views and photos. I highly recommend the ballooning.
The breakfast, camel tide and falconry was not what we expected, but the photos we took here was worth while.
Camel ride not real, but otherwise great!
The hot air balloon ride was great, really beautiful! I felt super safe and the staff was awesome and fun. I will say though that the camel ride was not an actual camel ride. You get on a camel and walk in circles around a fenced in enclosure for like 2 minutes.
