fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I think every single person in our RY group signed up for this – and rightfully so!! It was one of my favorites, so much so that I’m planning to go back and do it again. I had been to these pyramids in the past, and in my opinion going over them in the hot air balloons was a much better way to see them. I was totally nervous to go up in the balloon & it was SO worth it (& the early morning wake up call to see the sunrise over the pyramids was also worth it). Do this experience!!
Hat air balloons were the highlight!! Would recommend. Depending on wind, you may or may not float over the pyramids. In May of ‘21, couldn’t climb pyramids due to COVID, but could walk around the grounds. Great hats to buy. 1.5 hour Gift shop stop after pyramids was unnecessary.
My friends, world travelers and adventurers: Do not miss this opportunity.
The views are stunning. The champagne is popping. The nervous titter that runs through your closest friends and co-adventurers as you literally TAKE FLIGHT is electric.
Go on.... fly... you can do it :)
