“Ballooning in Cappadocia”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This sunrise balloon trip in Turkey was the high point of a fabulous vacation in Turkey. The 20 passenger basket was a bit hard to get in and out of, but with help from the crew I was able to do it. The scenery was breathtaking and seeing 50 or so other balloons was beautiful. We couldn't help telling the people in our trip group who didn't choose to go that they had made a big mistake!

“Fantastic experience in a Hot Air Balloon!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The experience of soaring in a hot air balloon and feeling god like was really awesome! The fare is steep at INR 12000 (€140 or USD 200) per person for a 1 hour flight but I felt is an experience not to be missed after traveling all the way to Turkey. The balloon soars to almost 5000 feet and is absolutely safe. It is a great substitute for anyone afraid of heights but still having the hankering to soar up into the skies.

The sights of the Cappaodoccian landscape consisting of unique geological rock formations are something unforgettable! If one has a good DSLR camera and filters, it is indeed paradise!

There are many balloon companies and there are very minuscule differences between them. It is however better to book in advance over the internet at least a week in advance and provide at least 2 date options. The take off, travel and landing are very much dependent on the weather and providing date options helps in a greater chance to do the trip, if the weather is bad on a particular day. Booking in advance can provide you with some discount and also a surety of travel.

All packages come with pick up from hotel, a simple breakfast at the assembly point, travel to take off site, the balloon trip itself, a small celebration after the landing with some cakes and champagne / juice and a photograph alongwith the decorated basket.

Trips are between 5 in the morning to 7 and sometimes upto 8 am, which is a bit rare.

“.. An Experience of a Kind....”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Professionally managed balloon tour. Enjoyed thoroughly the morning flight. The picked up in hotel on time. The best part was safety briefing and care before, during and while landing. Hats off. The celebration time after landing with bubbly was lovely.
Suggestions: Snacks can be improved while resting.

“Goreme Balloons sun rise trip”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

A excellent trip by balloon over the Goreme valley and the Fairy Castle rocks. We were up for about an hour hovering over this incredible landscape. We rose to about 1800ft and saw the sun rise over an extinct volcano. On landing we were treated to a glass of buck's fizz.

A totally unforgettable experience and highly recommended.
