We did a hot air balloon ride with Urgup last year and looked forward to another wonderful experience. Umit our pilot was excellent. My wife has leg problems and they had a step stool to help her climb in the basket. The ride was almost exactly one hour. We had spectacular views going down into canyons and flying near scenic...

We took the ride on 20 March 2014. I am afraid of heights and was a bit concerned about taking the ride. Also was a bit concerned on safety for my 6 year old. However, the experience of the flight was excellent due to the expertise of our flight pilot Mr. Tolga who had manoured the ballon very well. Would... More

The alarm is set for 04:30 for a 05:15 pickup at the hotel. One is efficiently whisked away to Urgup Hot Air Balloons' base in Goreme where a wonderful hot cup of tea or coffee awaits you. The temperature outside is 0 degrees! It is, after all, the end of the winter season. But the cold soon disappears as one... More

Being a bit scared of heights and flying I was a bit nervous and even tried to back out of going but the ground team and our pilot Umit made it so smooth and enjoyable. I am so glad I went. It really is the highlight of the trip and well worth the early morning wake up. I would fly... More

We took the balloon trip on Sunday 23rd of February. The experience was wonderful already from the start: we were picked up on time and taken to Ürgüp Balloons' "guest house" where a light breakfast (tea and coffee plus some snacks) was waiting for us. Also, during our small breakfast break we could watch a slideshow about the previous flights,... More

the hot air balloon ride was smooth, the crew were great, the morning snacks were adequate, but i did not like that we were packed like sardines in the balloon. I felt suffocated and cramped. It says they fly for an hour but its actually only 40 minutes, i timed it, plus another 10 mins for take off and landing.... More

Dear Guest, Firstly thank you for your taking care of us.The shorter flight time is a rare situaiton and it requires sometimes weather condition. And the subject of champagne now is the general offical process. Also most of our guest prefer the champagne whitout alcohol because of due to the early morning hours. We hope you will be our guest... More

We chose this balloon company because a friend recommended and the balloons had no ads and were colorful (so the pictures looked nicer). You have to wake up at 4 in the morning, but that's the only con you have there and you will have with every balloon trip. The crew showed confidence and I felt completely safe. Escolhemos essa...

The manager of the company picked me up bright and early at 5:45 am for a 6:30 start time. There were snacks, coffee and tea waiting in a warm room with a slideshow of previous flights. We drove off to the starting area and waited and watched as the balloon was inflated. There was a photographer taking group shots that... More
