    Luxor
    Stop: 3 hours
    Your stay in Luxor would not quite be the same without a bird’s eye view of the city from one a hot air balloons. Departing from your Luxor hotel or cruise ship just before dawn, cross the River Nile to the West Bank – where your hot air balloon awaits. After a safety briefing and introduction to your ground crew and pilot, you will climb into the balloon's basket and get ready for lift off. It is then time for the gentle rise into the dawn sky. Away from the daytime crowds, you will drift peacefully over the west Bank of Luxor and sights such as the monuments of Thebes. The early morning sun rising over the East Bank will illuminate the city and the surrounding mountains.

We reserved with Expedia a balloon trip for the 25 and paid it in advance.
We were in contact with them on Whatsapp until the day before the ride we were told to wait at 4 am for a pick up which we did and nobody came !!!! we called and called the person, sent message which were listed as "read" nobody Answered !!!!
we waited 1.30H in the cold morning for nothing !

As the person was not responding we contacted Expedia who was also unable to contact the person...
They have a policy of no refund so they literally STOLE our money and run with it !!!
Expedia keep on telling us that they can do nothing because Sheba have its non refund policy !!!
DO NOT TAKE THIS DEAL OR DEAL WITH SHEBA THEY ARE JUST THIEVES !!!!!

Hi, there Unfortunately, We are really disappointed to see your review, your review full of lies and Untrusted, here are the facts: Our agent Tried to contact you on WhatsApp, Your email, phoning, through Expedia, and even Sms and there's no response from your end. Time was passing and we should cancel the booking because we didn't receive any response from you but we decided to book the seats, Who knows, you maybe were busy or you have another tour and you will finish late so we waited for your response Until 4:45 am (We even tried to contact you via hotel reception but you didn't also reply!) then our agent received a call from you at 5:35 am that you are "Sorry for not responding" and you want the driver to back again to pick up you but this definitely was Impossible because the time is too late then you requested a refund and we told you that's impossible because there's no mistake from our end. The problem is you are unreachable!!!! So you told our agent you want a refund or you will make a bad review about us so we told you to do whatever you want but we can't issue a refund to you. So now guess what? A rude customer called "Nicolas Touron" deny our attempts to contact him and made a bad review containing a lot of unreasonable words, Like who will wait 1h and 30 minutes!!? The Sunrise is already over and you still have hope that we will change our mind and pick up you !!? It's clearly visible to anyone that your review is not even reasonable, No one gonna believe this review! . You definitely didn't expect that we will reply to your review? Look now at yourself, You embarrassed yourself too much. I really recommend you Do not embarrass yourself more than that and delete your unreasonable review! We as a Company "Sheba Tours" handle hundreds of bookings each day (300 Bookings per day on the average day) we are the Number #1 in the Sunrise hot air balloon rides. I can say proudly, we are the BEST. RUDE customers like you won't stop our success

If you are considering another travel agency for your hot air balloon ride...stop! Sheba tours is definitely the best choice. I bought my tour a month before and since then until the moment I returned to the tour hotel I received full support from the Refka sales representative. Starting by solving a little problem with my reservation that was wrong, with the entire secure process when confirming the data and also informing the time they would spend at the hotel with extreme punctuality. On the way back from the Refka tour he still sent me more messages to see if everything had gone well. About the tour, after leaving the hotel, we crossed the Nile by boat, which I thought was much nicer than going by car to the balloon. On the way, we were given all the necessary safety instructions. Our guide was exactly professional and spoke perfect English. He cared about every person in our group. When we got to where the balloons were, we were able to accompany the entire ground crew in the preparation of the balloon, which was extremely efficient. The balloon pilot also gave us a lot of security and control of what he was doing. On the air, he took care to make sure everyone had the right angles for photos, and we also show below all the points of interest that we passed. On landing the ground crew was extremely professional and quick. We earned our flight certificate and headed back to the hotel for sure happier than we left. They also sell footage of the tour, which is made by a cameraman who accompanies us from the beginning of the journey. The price of filming is quite cheap. I recommend you buy, the images are great.

We booked the tour and was expecting to be picked up at 4am. After waiting 15 minutes we tried to call Sheba tours but they did not pick up. After 40 minutes at 4:40 they finally picked up and we were told someone would come pick us up. We took a car to a boat that took us across the river in darkness. At the other side of the river we took another car where we were rushed to hop into the balloon. The ride was wonderful and was run by Galaxy Balloon rides. On our way back we were informed that Sheba had cancelled our tickets on TripAdvisor so we ended up paying in cash directly to Galaxy. We’re grateful for the experience and that we got to do it but I would not trust Sheba tours and I would not book this agency again.

I was notified around 5pm the evening before my pickup in the morning that Sheba Tours cancelled my booking even though I had already paid and it was confirmed. They have limited seats and oversold the sunrise tour so told me it wasn’t safe.

Amazing Experience, worth the trip to Luxor just for this!
The tour company was excellent in organising the balloon ride for us in the preferred time slot. Pick up time was very punctual.
I would highly recommend Refka from ShebaTours to help you book this unbelievable experience!!
