Was initially booked elsewhere but our agent convinced us after giving us a good deal. The pilot Dern I think was good and funny. He knew what he was doing even though he seemed otherwise. Especially after seeing our first choice of air balloon crash landing.. Phew! Luckily we shifted to urgup balloons. Thanks guys for a wonderful morning view... More

We were a group of 6 friends and took the Air Cappadocia Balloons. Amazing experience. Totally worth the waking up at 4 AM. The view was mesmerizing. The sight of sunrise with so many balloons in the air was just wow. And the champagne after landing successfully was a perfect end to the flight.

Our agent booked us on Urgup Balloons and we had a truly wonderful time, the best way to see the beauties of this lunar landscape, well worth the cost. We were picked up at 4am and taken to their office where coffee, tea and Danish awaited us, then a short drive to the take-off point. The views from the balloon... More

Our hotel booked us with this company and I'm so glad that they did. They are so organized and very nice. Our "captain" was very knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing and hot air ballooning itself. We felt very safe the entire time and I would love to do this again. It's completely worth the 3:30am wake up call... More

We booked the VIP tour, which was limited to 16 passengers and was supposed to include champagne. We were picked up on time and were taken to their office along with about 50 passengers where we waited quite a while because of the weather hold. They offered instant coffee, tea or apple juice. Too bad they didn't have comfortable seating.... More

Not only was this an awesome experience, the Urgup crew is wonderful. Our 4AM pick-up was on-time and the surprise breakfast in the waiting room was a treat. I don't know our pilot's name but he was very skilled and a great sense of humor too. It is a surreal experience to be floating in air over the interesting Cappadocia... More

We had excellent service and a fun, personable, and assuring pilot for our fist hot air balloon flight ever! This is a long-time, reliable, and great company! I do not hesitate to recommend them! My wife and I had a fantastic trip with them!

Initially we were likely going to book with Butterfly or Royal Ballons, but because we trusted Ilker Sen from Hotel Nazar (you can see my review), we went with Urgup Balloons. Not only was it more reasonably priced, but we had a fantastic experience! It is true that you cannot chose a balloon company purely based on number of passengers... More

My husband and I loved this when we visited. We booked our flight the night before and nothing was a problem. We were picked up at 4.10am from our airport (not great for lovers of sleep ins like me) But loved every minute of it. Back at hotel by 7 to have a little nap before the days tour. DO... More
