What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

This is a very slick, professionally run operation, which is what you want when you go up in a balloon! The transportation was good and upon arrival we were served tea and coffee while we waited for the balloons to be prepared. Our pilot was excellent - experienced with a good sense of humor. We had a wonderful ride and enjoyed a lovely breakfast in a gorgeous tent at the end.

Absolutely unreal - if you're on the fence about booking, just do it. Pictures and videos however good don't do the real thing justice it's something you definitely have to see in person

It was a great experience! Amazing breakfast after the ride. Our guide was able to explain everything and made us feel super comfortable.

Just magic! Do not hesitate it is really worth the detour and just amazing scenery

Incredible sunrise flight with Pierre and his team. We had a great time!
