I plan to spend 2 days in Cappadocia keeping Goreme as my base. I definitely want to go on a hot air balloon ride on one of the days but I am not sure how much time I should allot for that (including wait time). Does it need to be reserved in advance? Where are the best places to book a ride? At what time of the day should this be done?
Either walk and take dolmush or rent a scooter
Head out to Zelve Open Air museum
Visit Cavusin, Uchisar, Pasabag
Visit Goreme open air museum
Hike around Pigeon, Rose/Red Imagination, Love (any one)
Hot air balloon ride
Does the above itinerary do justice to the important sights? Also, is renting a scooter going to make a big difference when exploring all these areas? If the dolmush and buses are going to be running frequently, would they suffice for inter-location commute?
