Egypt: Hot air balloon ride in Luxor

I would like some information on taking a balloon ride in Luxor. I have been in hot air balloons before and think they are terrific, however, I wonder if it is worth the early morning wake-up to experience one in Luxor. Did you get to go over interesting areas? Sometimes, balloons are not allowed over sites and I have a hunch that this area might be very restricted. Any comments would be appreciated.

I can't remember there being any site restrictions on balloon rides there. There is a problem with weather. There is heavy haze in the air most mornings in Luxor; at least, every time I've been there there has been. I was going to take one until another tourist showed me his pictures which were mostly of sites covered by thick dark haze and smoke. He enjoyed the trip but it didn't look worthwhile to me to get up at four am.

Thank you RFB for your feedback. The haze could definitely be a major problem... I didn't think of that.
