Must do experience
I hate flying, I am the biggest baby ever when it comes to heights. I must say though I am so very glad my family persuaded me to take this amazing trip over the valley of the Kings and old Thebes. It is so gentle, so wonderful to see the views from the balloon, and nothing like the experience I imagined it would be. It started very early in the morning, but we were well used to the early starts by the time we went on this trip. We had a cup of tea and biccies on a ferry to take us over to West Bank then a short journey to the balloons. By then my knees were knocking, I felt sick, and was wondering how my family managed to get me this far! It was all very quick getting in the balloon, then take off. I closed my eyes for a few mins, then opened them. we were up and it was stunning. We watched the sun come up over Luxor, saw the ancient sights from the air that we'd visited earlier in the week, and watched the locals wake up in their beds- yes you can see into their houses! Our Pilot was so funny, played 'come fly with me' on his mobile phone, and made us laugh with his 'one off'lines. The vertigo completely dissapeared. I honestly can say I really didn't want to come down, it was so lovely.Anyone who ever gets the chance to experience this- do so, it's amazing, expensive, but worth every penny (or Egyptian Pound!!) Ours was organised by our travel company, but you can book direct I think. Do it,if you can, it's brilliant!Highlight of our holiday. I'm surprised no one else has written a review!
