Hot air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings

This is one of the most highly recommended travel experiences while you are in Egypt. Sure, you have to get up at an unearthly hour of 4am, make your way in pitch darkness to another harbour, catch a boat, cross the Nile, take a car to a field, brave the cold, then the heat of the fire. But, at the crack of dawn, the moment you float up from the ground and the valley comes into view - everything just becomes worth it! Don't miss it when you're there.
