Getting up so early might seem like a chore, but it is totally worth it to get into a hot air balloon and watch the sun rise and peek through the clouds in such a unique, alien (to us Canadians) landscape.
If you want to have a good little breakfast though, I recommend eating it before they bring you to their main office area for a 'breakfast layout' for while they collect everyone's names for the certificates they print up for everyone to keep at the end of the ride.
It was an awful spread and there wasn't even a proper tea-maker (which became standard after seeing how çay was served everywhere) available to the customers.
After asking me to write my name twice on a piece of paper, they still spelled my name wrong on my certificate.
But man, that balloon ride was fun. I never felt at risk - even when our basket totally smoked the top portion of a medium sized tree a bit during the ride
Our pilot Hakkan Yildiz, was quite funny and made informative comments about the surroundings and hot air balloons in general.
The champagne at the end of the ride was nice, but a little out of place for 6:30 in the morning in an Islamic country.

No doubt, if you wanna to do a balloon flight once in your life, you have to do it in capadocia. It s an amazing experience , you are in the sky with no wind, no sound , totally quiet discovering a magical point of view about this beautiful mountain, and you could enjoy an amazing sunset...
I do some flight before in other countries, but this one was my best.
If you wanna live this experience you have to choose this company. They have the best balloon pilots, they are able to go very close from the landscape and the mountain. The experience is greater like that and you will feel totally safe. No-confirmed pilost are not able to go so low ... and the experience is not the same.
This company is very professional and organized, and the safety is obviously their priority (i am an aircraft pilot so i can confirm it). You can book at tour everywhere in town the day just before, they will pick you up very early (i did the flight in july, pick up was at 4.30 AM to take off at 5.30...)

This company works like a well oiled machine.
The pilot and staff know exactly what to do, when to do it, including making sure everyone on the balloon gets a turn at taking great photos, explaining what we weere seeing but not talking the whole time so we could enjoy the serenity of the experience.
Had champagne and a certificate at the end of the experience included which was a nice touch. Would do again.

You get what you pay for. If you do no other activity in Turkey, splash out on a sunrise balloon ride with Voyager. Highly professional, experienced pilots and exceptional standard, I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. They provide hotel pickup, breakfast, uncrowded balloons, champagne landing and certificate. Stunning, breathtaking views that you will remember forever.

other than the getting up early - this is fantastic. We went on a very good day - no weather issues or clouds, so it was perfect. The breakfast is nothing to speak of, but this is not why you do this excursion....Do this for the amazing sunrise, the breathtaking views and the joy of seeing all the other balloons in the air with you...There was never a thought for our safety as our "pilot" spoke good English, was funny, instructive and confident.
