Brilliant experience from start till end. Saber, our driver, arrived right on time to pick us up from our hotel. Most importantly, we contacted 5 different hot air balloon companies and ciel d'afrique was the only one willing to take on wheelchair users. It is not directly accessible to wheelchair but the entire staff of Ciel d'afrique is extremely helpful & friendly. They immediately agreed to take a wheelchair user at the same price as everyone else. Saber and other staff members got together and lifted me in and out of the vehicle as well as the balloon. Our pilot Pierre was also very friendly and jovial, making us laugh and making the ride even better with his humour. Views are majestic of course. And good breakfast.
Saber was so sweet and exceptionally helpful. Me & my daughter are very grateful to him, with his help we could do this bucket list activity! Till dropping us back to the hotel reception he was helping. During the balloon ride also they had one staff member specially to keep check of my safety.
Of course I recommend this to everyone, definitely try at least once. But I specially want to recommend ciel d'afrique and Saber to everyone with disabilities who want to experience hot air ballooning!

This was the best thing we did in Morocco, a tremendous few hours i would recommend to anyone. We were collected at 6:30am from our Riad by Abdel Fatah and driven to the take off area, Abdel was excellent!! The balloon ride began just before sunrise and was amazing , Pierre the pilot was entertaining as well as informative. The views were incredible at low and higher levels. Do not hesitate to book this trip it will be a true highlight of your vacation.

The sunrise hot air balloon flight was incredible! On the morning of the experience we were picked up by Saber. He was on time, very polite and drove safely. On arrival to the site, we signed in and were offered tea, coffee and a small croissant. When the balloons were ready, Saber escorted us over and took pictures for us. From the moment we were in the balloon, we knew we were in good hands and safe. Antonio, our pilot explained how everything worked, had a great sense of humour but also very diligent about everyone’s safety. The flight was absolutely breath taking. We had a very smooth landing and were greeted by Saber who took us back to the tents for a small breakfast. He also surprised us with a video of our balloon take off and photos which was unexpected and very much appreciated. After we finished breakfast, Saber drove us back to our pickup point.
We had a wonderful experience, we knew we were in good hands with both Saber & Antonio and have already recommended Ciel d Afrique to others.

Anyone interested in a hot air balloon trip, we highly recommend Ciel d Afrique they are extremely professional and trustworthy.

The whole experience was superbly organised with no hanging around. From the driver who picked us up from the hotel and return, to the pilot of the balloon and the welcoming party/breakfast back at their base (40 mins drive outside of Marrakesh). We felt safe throughout although a little more time should perhaps have been spent on explaining the landing process and what would happen. But overall the whole flight / landing was very smooth, lasted a full hour and the views of the sunrise and all the other balloons around was amazing.
We landed about 6-7 kms from take off point (as you have to go with the wind direction of course), but the communication to get us picked up (and the next flight party to arrive and new propane cylinders delivered) was swift and accurate.
An incredible experience not to be missed. Well worth the money.

They accept payment and tell you they are fully booked for the time you booked, but they are keeping the money....

I recently booked this experience at sunrise as a birthday present. It was late in the day but they accepted by booking Raja messaged me to let me know "Please note that we don't have availability for tomorrow, I suggest you the 11th October for the sunrise flight.". As it was booked for my last day in Marrakesh this is not an option. They still refused to give me a refund and Raja then tried to lie and say "we are selling the hot air ballon not the sunrise" to which I returned a screenshot of the listing which obviously had the sunrise and obviously his earlier message letting me know the sunrise is no longer available. They simply stole money

Dear Guest, You booked at 10.00pm and duty manager of reservation called you to inform you 1st flight was not available for the next day and offered to place you the day after. You insisted for the next morning and we told you only 2nd flight would be available. Yes, we confirmed you as anywhere in the world that Sunrise is never ever what we sell as even for 1st flight, we can experience delays (wind, technical issue for example). You pretended that you will cancel but you did not and you had a no-show at your booking. Please read carefully Viator policy, any cancellation less than 24h00 hours or no-show is not refundable.

Booked my wife and I on a trip while on holiday in Marrakech. Picked up from the hotel by our driver Saber at 7am. Driven to take off site. Had a breakfast, then inflated the balloon, up up and away. Flew for approximately an hour and got up to 3,000 feet. Our pilot was Mr Danials who had featured on a channel 5 programme called “Billionaire Resorts, on holiday with the super rich.” Mr Danials was a delight and extremely knowledgeable and fascinating to listen to. Once the flight finished bump free and very well executed, we were met by Saber in a company land cruiser and driven home to our hotel.
Having previously done a trip in Kenya this was as good as it gets and we could not recommend this company highly enough. It’s a must to do in Marrakech. Hope to return with our grown up children to do again.

This is a must do activity whilst in Marrakech! We got picked up from our hotel at about 5:30am then had about a half hour drive into the desert. We were greeted with croissants and Moroccan tea and given a safety briefing.
The hot air balloon ride was phenomenal, we would really recommend trying to get onto the first flight of the day so you get to see the sunrise
The staff were absolutely amazing, and we felt safe at every single point.
Once we’d landed, we went back to the base for a tradition Berber breakfast which was amazing.
We would do it again in a heartbeat, it was fantastic

It was absolutely amazing. All of the staff were so friendly, especially our driver Saber who took lots of photos for me as I was by myself. Everything from the camp, to the experience itself to the Berber breakfast afterwards was unreal. Do yourself a favour and get them to do the photos and videos for you too for 200 Dirhams (€20), you won't regret it. I can't even begin to describe the magic of watching the sun rise from over 1600m in the air. It is a memory I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Thank you Ciel d'Afrique

What a great experience.

We organised this trip through our hotel and it is one we will not forget.

Saber our guide calmed our nerves and explained and showed us where to go at every point.

Once we climb into the basket ( flat shoes and trouser recommended) and on board our pilot Pierre again explained what was happening and he also relaxed the nervous passengers with information and reassurance. the baskets which where sectioned off so 4 people in each section which helped so no one was crowed and each had the same views. The sunrise was out of this world and one which we will never forget
Once safely on the ground a buffet
breakfast within tents was laid out which
gaves us time to reflex on our experience.
A certificate was also given out for you to keep.
Saber had also taken photos videos from the ground which he sent to us that same day which was fab.
I would highly recommend this trip for anyone.

From beginning to end this was a great experience. We opted for the early pick-up which came promptly and our guide Saber was friendly and polite. We were driven to the launch site and given a briefing before getting to our balloon. Saber took some pictures as we took off. The experience lasted about 1 hour and the only disappointment was the cloudy sky - which was obviously nobody’s fault. Despite that the experience of floating up into the clouds was amazing and the pilot was very entertaining. Saber met us on the ground for more pictures and then took us for a very generous Berber breakfast. I can’t fault the experience and the guide made it all the more better. Highly recommended.
