Many thanks to you for your kind review. We did not concentrate enough in the last 27 years operating alone here ... focused on the operation process, maintenance, security being our priority. And quality of our flights, 1 hour in the moroccan sky over Jbilet mountains, flying as high altitude as possible (max 1000 meters), with Top quality balloons we... More

I really enjoyed the lead pilot, Hicham Zrikem, he was so friendly and professional, he had a great deal logistically to deal with as he had us up soaring over the rocky desert. I really enjoyed this, but think next time I will do it over France where there is more to see below.

The balloon ride was supposed to be for roughly an hour but only lasted about 25-30 minutes. I know weather and air quality is a factor for these things, but it was seemingly a great day, I think the problem was that the crew got off to a late start and so we had to finish early because the air...

After question that we will fully publish below, it seems that the evaluation of the time of flight is very approximative from you : you announced 25 to 30 mins, and then 36 to 37 minutes in your direct message answer, and finally it was 46 minutes up to registration books of this day, March 9th where we had 3...

Our hot air balloon ride from beginning to end was memorable, breathtaking and definitely unique. The Ciel d'Afrique team was amazing and extremely gracious throughout the entire process. All of the logistics were smooth and well-planned, from the pick-up at our hotel to the post ride breakfast under a beautiful Moroccan tent. Compared to other hot air balloon companies in... More

A delightful experience, from email enquiry to the return at my hotel some hours later. The driver was informative, polite and genial. Arriving at the launch site we were greeted with mint tea and blankets to keep us warm. There was very little waiting before we were airborne, enjoying the vast expanse of the plains as they butted into the... More

We had an amazing vip flight with Maurice and the team from Ciel d'Afrique in Marrakech. The whole team was really friendly and welcoming. We woke up to a rare cloudy day but instead of being worried about not getting a great clear view of the city, our pilot took us above the clouds so we could watch the sunrise... More

Maurice is the Founder of Ciel d'Afrique and always happy to care about private flights (TOP VIP and ROYAL with stunning gourmet sky breakfast served in the air, unique service available at Ciel d'Afrique). You had unique flight going through the clouds to see the sunrise, not so many days with clouds in Marrakech ... Warm regards from sunny Morocco More

Well worth the early morning rise for this trip, well organised, from pick up to drop off. Watching the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in a balloon is some what an experience, not to be missed in Marrakesh ! From breakfast to refreshments a 5 star experience.
