Amazing!

I would recommend trying a hot air balloon to everyone traveling to Marrakech. It was the highlight of my trip! This company was very professional and well-organized. The breakfast was simple but tasty. Enjoyed the tea before and after the ride.

Great balloon ride, but was not at sunrise!

The balloon ride was lovely, but the breakfast felt a little rushed and because we were in the "second" set of rides for that morning (which was not communicated previously), we missed the actual sunrise by a fair amount of time. After the ride, we were driven straight back to our meeting point.

Thanks for sharing your experience ! Yes, we have 2nd flight and 3rd flights somme days. Sunrise is never a promise ... even for 1st morning flight, we may experience de delay for the take off waiting for suitable weather conditions. Rare, but possible. For 2nd flight passengers, it is always confirmed ''2nd morning flight after sunrise''. Please check your messages from Ciel d'Afrique, it is always communicated previous to the flight. For 2nd flight, if conditions are normal, passengers arriving at the camp are having breakfast until moment pursuit cars of the balloons are starting to follow them and be there with passengers at moment of landing, in front of you. Easy to take picture at this moment as it is nice daylight (not during the take off on 1st flight when it is still dark). Then we refuel, change passengers and take off for a second flight. All photo shooting and cinema teams only take 2nd flight for light they need for their professional job. Hope this details help to understand future balloon enthusiasts !

A memorable sunrise

It was a great experience and very well organized. All went very smoothly, communication, pick up from the hotel, breakfast at the camp in a berbere tent. A special mention to our driver Daniel, a very calm, nice and noticeably experienced pilot that left us very confortable on our first ballon flight and made this trip memorable.

Many thanks for your feed-back ! I loved driving together in Marrakech Sky with your family. Was good to have you flying with Ciel d'Afrique (African Sky). Sincerely Daniel

Thank you to Daniel and team for what was truly one of the highlights of my life, not just my trip to Morocco. Wonderful early pick up, with about a 40 minute drive out to the site. Welcoming coffee/tea for the early morning and an incredibly sleekly run operation to make sure we all go off in our balloons on time. No matter how many times in your life you see an African sunrise, to see it over mountains, 1km above the earth..... truly flawed me and brought tears to my eyes. An extraordinarily calming experience is ballooning over rural Morocco whilst watching other balloons go up in the distance.... and you’ll experience a landing like no other..... wonderfully smooth and an all around brilliant morning (the Berber breakfast was also excellent!) Don’t hesitate in booking this with Ciel De Afrique, it’s an experience you will never forget and are unlikely to regret.♥️

Best Hot Air Balloon Ride
Gokul U
, May 2019
I would definitely recommend anyone who visits Marrakech to try the Hot Air Balloon Ride and use viator to book this particular Adventure run by Ciel d'Afrique. Ciel d'Afrique are the best for Hot Air Balloon Ride and the company itself is on the field for 29 years. I wouldn't recommend any other company because they are either scary or risky. Use Viator to book for Ciel d'Afrique Balloon Ride. The breakfast even though was cold it was filling. The pilots and other staffs are well behaved and trained well. The pick up driver was on time and helped us in many ways answering all our questions and he made our travel to the spot was safe. Overall I would definitely recommend the Ciel D'Afrique Hot Air Balloon Ride. Don't miss it.

A fantastic trip, I loved it! Our first attempt didn't happen as there was bad weather i could see the lightning! but they gave us breakfast and blankets to sit in the huts while they decided if it was safe to go or not. I wasn't at all annoyed that we didn't get to go that day as safety is paramount. I was offered the next morning and went then instead. This is a well organised trip and definitely worth it. The views are breathtaking. Our pilot was brilliant. The landing was a light touch on the ground and that was it. No bumpy landing, nothing to be scared of at all. If you've never been in a hot air balloon then definitely go. This was my first time and I'm so glad I did it.

Highlights the views, simply stunning! The impressive Mountains, rural farm land and local village houses could all be seen on our sunrise balloon experience! location perfect, low wind and clear blue Moroccan skies very very professional set up, made you feel very safe and assured flying insight into local life, tent breakfast with mint tea, pancakes, hard boiled eggs and fruit door to door pick up drop off language wasnt an issue, perfect English spoken great communication to arrange pick up time I was picked up at 6am and made it back just after 9, no problem for a second breakfast at my hotel!

Disappointing as there was barely anything to see from up in the balloon. We were in the middle of nowhere and there was nothing to see. The breakfast afterwards was also disappointing and cold. Not worth the price at all.

Magical trip - just do it! The gang of lads organising the flight were great fun, and the breakfast in a fantastic Berber desert tent was lovely. Our guide Abdullah was a diamond, funny, interesting, informative, and a little bit crazy as he said himself! To see the Atlas Mountains from the balloon was a truly special experience. B
