We had a brilliant trip with Sindbad we drifted along past Hatshepsut's temple and almost over the Ramesseum before a change in wind direction meant that we crossed the Nile and landed about three miles over on the eastern bank. What a great experience.

I had a great experience with Sindbad in Luxor. Khaleb was the captain and I felt very safe with him flying the balloon. He is very funny too! I laughed the entire time. Unforgettable experience. Definitely one of the highlights from my trip to Egypt.
