What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

We are very happy with our experience and our driver Hamada who picked us up from our hotel. He was very helpful and answered all questions we had. I went there with my mum and grandparents. The men who worked with he balloon helped my grandparents get in and out of the balloon basket by lifting them up. I truly recommend it!

Wonderful hospitality. Excellent experience over the desert to watch the sunrise from behind the Atlas mountains. Only complaint I have is that I wish we had been informed of the size of our party so that we could have been in a balloon with a smaller basket so that we could have risen to a higher altitude than ours.

Sooooo cool!!! Our driver was so nice and punctual! Spoke good enlish. First we got breakfast and then the flight. Flight was smooth and our pilot was super professional! Breakfast in base aftetwards! Worth every penny and more!

The balloon ride was great even though it was cloudy. The pilot was very good and we had an extra long flight. We had others on our flight but it wasn’t overcrowded- just nice. Would highly recommend.

Super incredible moment everything was top from A to Z with the driver Amada and all the other employees who made us live a magical moment. I recommend 100%
