We had an amazing trip form beginning to end. The pick up was smooth even though it was very early. :) from Dubai Marina it was around 45 mins drive to the place where we started with the balloon. We were greeted with tea and dates and a short briefing about the safety. Then we actually started and we were lucky to have Abraham from Catalonia as our pilot :) He made our trip fun and exciting and told us about his career as a balloon pilot. The landing was smooth like Creme de Catalana :) the total ride was approx 1 hour and had beautiful views. After we went to the desert camp with a very nice breakfast, not crowded and very relaxing. We also had a short drive with the Oldtimer. Overall I can really recommend the tour, with Abraham as pilot and the overall experience was great!
