Great hot air balloon experience!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Great experience, saw a beautiful sunrise that was a romantic start to the day. We were a bit nervous/scared of heights but the whole production felt very safe. Incredible views over Atlas Mountains and Marrakech. Amine, our driver, was extremely friendly, conversational and spoke great English. Also speaks Arabic, German, and French. He picked us up from our hotel and brought us back in a comfortable 4-wheel drive. Highly recommend this company and especially Amine!

Beautiful Morning in the Sky
I enjoyed a beautiful morning floating high above Marrakech! Amine was lovely from the start, arriving promptly at my hotel (the hotel pickup is a great bonus), and he was was eager to assist with anything I needed - taking photos, making sure all was good with my breakfast, etc. He was able to switch easily between speaking English with me and French with the other couple in my car so I always felt like I knew what was going on. Thank you for helping to check this awesome experience off my bucket list!

Breathtakingly good. First class service.
Stunning experience. Fantastic service. From the minute we were picked up, to the time we arrived back at our Riad we were exceptionally well looked after. Our driver Amine was a true hospitality pro. He spoke perfect English with us and shared local tales! Such a nice guy. When we arrived at the launch site, we were given tea and coffee whilst we watched the balloons being readied for flight. The flight itself was breathtaking. We saw the sun rise over the mountains. Our pilot was a true pro. I can't reccomend flying with this company enough. I have done flights previously, but this was ace. Thanks again Amine for looking after us so well.

Beautiful amazing experience
From the start to the end the whole experience was nothing short of absolutely amazing. We were picked up at our hotel by Jeep and taken out of the city, the set up was lovely we were offered drinks and we all sat around in a beautiful tent. We were taken over to the balloons while they were being inflated and even that sight took my breath away because of the scale. The flight was 60 mins and watching the sunrise amazing just a few clouds in the sky but it didn’t diminish the experience. We landed and the jeeps had followed us to pick us up and take us back to the tent for breakfast and to collect your certificates. They have toilet facilities which looked clean and tidy. We were offered to have a short video for 300 mad by two young guys it was well worth the money the quality is brilliant and because they use a drone the images you get you could never get yourself. Even though my husband doesn’t like heights he loved it as well if in two minds just go for it you’ll honestly not regret it.

Professional Company, Pilot & Ground Support Crew ... And Incredible Experience
Mar 2020
Based on customer reviews AND comparisons with competitors in the Marrakech region, Ciel d'Afrique was our first choice, and what an EXCELLENT choice it was! Okay, the cost did NOT include a camel ride after the balloon ride as some competitors do, but having read all the negative reviews concerning the badly treated camels, who wants a camel ride anyway!!!

Ciel d'Afrique was everything my wife and I had hoped for PLUS much more besides. What a top professional company they are, providing an experience second-to-none, just 45 minutes drive from our hotel in the center of Marrakech. Considering it was 1st March perhaps we were lucky, but the weather was absolutely perfect for our 1-hour balloon ride. Thank you to the entire Ground Support Crew, but most of all thanks to our pilot Pierre Barre. What a professional and interesting guy, and if you have questions, technical or otherwise, ask him - he seems to derive much pleasure in providing answers ...

However ... Having gone through all the safety and landing procedures before the flight with Pierre, perhaps my (not sure about my wife) only disappointment was that our landing did not involve being dragged across the terrain on the side of the basket in a brace position ... whereas, somewhat disappointingly (for me), it was the softest touchdown you could have hoped for :-) You could have drank a glass of wine and not spilled a drop!

Thanks for such a nice feed-back and so humor included ! Only about 2% of our landings are ''sporty'' meaning the basket is going on the side (it is made for it) and possibly being a little bit dragged by the wind. You have to come back to try again ... Thanks for your post !

Feb 2020
Very fun experience. You'll have to wake up early, but the sun rise experience is like no other. The communication was excellent from pickup to travel destination and the transportation. The communication was clear and precise. The breakfast was simple, but special. The special part of the experience was meeting new people that were just excited to try this for the very first time. Highly recommended.

Jan 2020
This was my first time in a hot air balloon & it was absolutely amazing. It was so easy, the company WhatsApped and emailed me the day before with the pick-up time. They were on time to pick us up. The pilot was French and very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. The people I was with had done a hot air balloon ride before and said it was great value for money.

Did this yesterday and was not disappointed! What a fabulous experience to have and what great people running this business! Pick up in time and a little off road driving to get there 😊 hop up warm as it's cold at early morning! Watched the balloons being set up and had breakfast and then off for the ride.
Raphael was our pilot and was great and very informative
Highly recommend this tour and well worth the money
