Hot Air Balloon, Luxor

See the Luxor Guide ›
Egypt's insider take:

It's worth the $125 charge and pre-dawn wake-up call to float above the west bank and experience a bird's eye view of the famous temples and sugarcane fields stretching toward the River Nile. About a dozen balloons take off each morning, their pilots in radio contact with each other and the Luxor International Airport control tower. Safety briefings are conducted before you depart. The liftoff is exhilarating, as is the landing in the desert south of Hatshepsut's Temple. The flight lasts about an hour, depending on wind conditions. Book through your hotel.
