Must do we excursion in Dubai!
Today's adventure was nothing short of perfection. Thank you to our guide Abbas who made this experience so enjoyable. We were picked up from a very close location to our accommodation and taken to the desert where we had Arabian coffee and dates before our safety briefing. Captain Yosh and the rest of his crew was absolutely excellent and made this the most enjoyable experience. Everyone was so nice, knowledgeable and welcoming. Thank you! This excursion is highly recommended as a must do while you are visiting Dubai!

Amazing Morning! A Once in a Lifetime Adventure
This was an amazing morning. Not a single thing wasn't just perfection. We were picked up from our hotel in Dubai by a very nice driver very early in the morning. We had a little drive to get out of the city and into the desert. When we arrived, it was still dark. Our hosts sat us on a rug with pillows and served us very strong coffee. While we waited for the balloons to get ready, we watched a drone show. Next, we got in our balloon and slowly ascended into the sky. It was absolutely perfect watching the sunrise from the balloon. As we were descending, we saw some camels running across the desert from a local farm. After the balloon ride, they loaded us up in our same shuttles and we made our way to the breakfast site. Once we got to a certain point, we exchanged the shuttles to the vintage land rovers. These were such cool vehicles and great for photos. Breakfast was lovely and the locale was very neat. Enjoyed visiting with families from other countries while having breakfast. After breakfast, we had a short camel ride which gave some great photo ops. Cannot recommend this adventure enough. All of the people hosting this event were fabulous from hotel pick-up to drop-off.
An amazing experience
Abbas was my guide and Yosh was our balloon captain, and together they put together a fantastic experience. Abbas made things effortless and lighthearted throughout the adventure, and Yosh is clearly skilled at what he does and made the balloon ride an unforgettable experience. The Land Rover and camel ride were great as well and it was a lot of fun to get outside of the city and experience something different. I'd absolutely recommend Abbas, Yosh, and D
One of the best excursions in Dubai!
This was one of the best experiences, and I highly recommend Balloon Adventures Dubai. They really went above and beyond to offer an incredible balloon ride, the pilot was excellent and the views were beautiful. The whole experience was magical. On top of that Saif was the best guide, and all of the staff were wonderful. I learned so much about Dubai and the UAE from Saif, and he did a great job with our Land Rover ride, and experience at the camp where we had breakfast and rode the camels. I loved the excursion so much, I will do it again the next time I am in Dubai. Thanks, Saif and the Balloon Adventures Dubai team, you were awesome!
Hot air ballooning in Dubai
It was a wonderful experience. The pilot, his ground crew and our guide were all amazing. I have back issues (and actually wasn't supposed to do this activity) but the landing was perfectly smooth - no issues at all.
Perfection from start to finish
Amazing experience with a great crew and spot on customer service. We had the best morning, from the pick up at our hotel to the balloon ride, breakfasts and dropped off it was all perfect.
Thank you to the team, the pilot and Naeem for an excellent service. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and families
This was an amazing morning. Great communication, super friendly staff and a memorable experience. Our pilot Arthur was fantastic. Platinum heritage went above all of my expectations with the Land Rover ride to the desert camp for breakfast, the camels and eagle that were present. Thank you to All!
Unforgettable Moments and Special Treat
It was unforgettable experience!
From the amazing organization ( thanks to Niel from Platinum Heritage ) also captain Serhan and all Hero team took a really good care of us!
We love the breakfast at the camp - super fresh and delicious with a lot of options.
Finally my wish came true and I tried the hot air balloon, thank you one more time PH Team for these moments... Cheers guys, you doing perfect job and you are real HEROES

Awesome. We’d done several hot air balloon trips before - all good. This one was better by some margin. Captain Andrew, balloonist, calm and completely professional. Abbas, guide & transport, great fun and with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the Emirates; it’s history and culture. Awesome is an overused word. But that’s what it was.
An experience of a lifetime
The balloon ride was truly amazing and an item ticked off the bucket list. The land rover experience and breakfast was equally good.
Unforgettable Dubai Sunrise
Waking up at 4am is never easy but for this experience it was totally worth it. Everything from the pick up to drop off went extremely smoothly. Arturos, our balloon guide, was friendly and helpful and helped make the experience unforgettable. I will definitely recommend Balloon Adventures Emirates to any of my friends/family traveling to Dubai.
Outstanding and seamless experience
AkashKush P, 06-01-2023
From start to finish the experience was very well organised. Woke up early for a 5am pick up and our driver Ibrahim provided us with a thrilling experience in the car between the activities. At the dessert we were given a mesmerising drone show before we went up in the air with Jackie as our photographer and Caroline our pilot. It was all magical to go in the air where I proposed going up to 40,000 ft seeing the mountains of Omar in the far reaching vieew. We then sailed through the desert before we were greeted with bubbly and strawberries. The desert drive with Ibrahim was also an experience in its own right before we saw our desert oasis riding on camels and having an amazing fresh breakfast.
Surreal morning with Balloon Adventures, Dubai
The entire experience from start to end was surreal and mesmerizing. We had been looking forward to the hot air balloon ride for a long time, but the care and precision with which the entire experience was curated was mind blowing. The sunrise while we were in air was stunning. And the dunes looked shimmery. The lavish breakfast spread gave a royal feel. The team was very warm, cheerful and more than happy to go out of the way and make us feel special. A special mention for Abbas and Captain Josh is a must. Overall, brilliance! One must go for it to feel the vibe. Words don't do justice.
Best things in life
The transition from the ground to the sky was amazing riding in the clouds or sailing through the clouds will be a feeling that you will never forget God is great
This was an experience I will never forget! Everything was perfect, starting from the morning when our driver picked us up from the hotel. Nikki was very friendly, professional as well as the entire team, captain Andrew, the staff responsible for the balloon, for the breakfast, as well as for the camels. Flying with the balloon was a dream come true and the landing was very smooth. Breakfast was delicious especially the traditional dishes. Being driven in the vintage cars was in the desert was wonderful too.
Definitely an experience I would recommend for people of all ages. My mom enjoyed it a lot!
