If you’re keen to do a hot air balloon ride over the Atlas Mountains while in Marrakech, it seems like a waste not to add the extra touches that will make it a super-memorable experience. With this tour, you get numerous perks, including snacks and coffee as you watch your balloon inflating, plus a post-flight camel ride and Berber-style breakfast that lets you relax and talk about your experience before returning to your hotel.
What to Expect
Begin early with a 4x4 pickup at your Marrakech hotel, and journey to the balloon launch location.
On arrival, refuel with tea, coffee, and pastries, and watch your expert team prepare and inflate your balloon. Then, settle into the sturdy basket for takeoff. Each basket carries up to eight passengers, and there’s ample space to relish the sights as you fly.
Gaze at the desert and admire the sunrise over the craggy valleys and mountains as you float over the Atlas foothills. Touch down and visit a tent to enjoy a Berber-style breakfast of delicacies such as flatbreads, pancakes, fresh fruit, and mint tea.
Receive a souvenir flight certificate, and then take a camel ride around the Palmeraie, the palm oasis skirting Marrakech. Your experience then finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Just as described. Outstanding. Early ride out. Good pastries, juice, coffee in pre-flight meeting area. Great ride by María, a young and very knowledgeable pilot. Great picture-taking ops. Very good breakfast in a Berber tent after landing. Camel ride was also fun.

Ok so the hot air balloon ride was ok... we missed the sunrise because it took too long to take off and was shoved in the basket with 20 other people which have you no room to move around. The views were nice and pilot...More

I pre booked before the vacation. However I did see this advertised in excursions shops in the main square. I booked the waterfall tour in the square and paid cash for that so I expect you can.
