People may think it is expensive, but after looking at all the efforts to raise up and to land the balloon, you will be pleased to know the money is well spent. My experience: the view was extraordinary, explanation by the pilot made us understand the place well.

First Hot Air Balloon Ride for me, not as frighten as some people says. The View is just overwhelming. You just got to experience it for yourself. Pictures are all good, but seeing it with your own eyes are just different.

We did our first hot air balloon ride ever, and it will be hard to top this experience anywhere else. After debating, we did the smaller group, longer flight, and would not hesitate to say it was money well-spent (~225 USD per person). Our pilot was fluent in english but our group was multinational; he had been a tour guide... More

From our arrival at their office, to the launch site, flight, landing & return to our Hotel,you'd have to stay that they are one class act!! We flew with the chief pilot, & every bit of his 8 years experience showed as he lifted, turned, dipped & maneuvered to give us the most amazing flight experience! Good on you all... More

Make sure you get the full hour! A lot of time is spent driving from hotel to hotel picking up other travellers and then you spend an inordinate amount of time drinking tea, coffee and eating biscuits, bread rolls etc before you actually set off. Perhaps this is on purpose to settle your nerves...dress warmly as you may be colder... More

As our friend called the Hot Air Ballon as best fligt ever. The view plus the sunrise was a wow and really amazing! It was like you have taken to other world, the rock formation and valley was unbelievably beautiful. It was an hour flight but it wasn't really enough if only we could stay longer in the air. And...

The first time I laid eyes on the photos of Cappadocia, I know I just have to be there... and try the hot air balloon experience. The ride was arranged by the hotel where I stayed in (Shoestring Cave House) so it was very quick, easy and convenient. They offer pick up from and drop off at the hotel. Call... More

I decided it would be crazy to be so close to all those wondrous balloons and not get on one!! Was I ever glad that I did :) The captain who took us up, Ercument, was professionalism personified! The ride was fantastic, smooth and delightful in every aspect. Catching the sunrise over the mountains and seeing the valley below bathed... More
