Floating effortlessly just an arms stretch away from the tops of the fairy-chimneys, fruit trees and then ascending high above the ice cream coloured ravines, this is simply the best way to travel above the valleys of Cappadocia.

Butterfly Balloons in Capadocia, Turkey was the highlight of our trip. The company is very professional and the flight was out of sight! We flew for 1 hour and 15 minutes with spectacular views both high and low. It felt very safe and pleasant. Butterfly is #1 for a reason. Everything went off without a hitch. Our pilot, Eftal Ourak... More

This is an experience not to miss experience in Cappadocia. The staff is very professional and make the experience memorable. Our pilot Mike was very friendly, and at all times he explained to us the details of flying a balloon, air currents, Valley weather patterns, etc. The views are breathtaking and the sensation of flying with no sound other than...

Mike took us on the deluxe ride that has a small cosy basket with 4 cabins that can take 3 persons each. This is better than the large 24 seater baskets. Also he manoeuvred the balloon all over the place while most other balloons nearby just went up and down. As the cost of balloon ride is same with all... More

After being cancelled on our first morning, we were accomodated for another flight the next day. They pick you up from the hotel and bring you to have breakfast at their head office. They put 3 people in a basket compartment with 4 total compartments in the balloon. The pilot was experienced and flew over breath taking landscape. This was... More

Just a fantastic experience. My first time in a balloon and our pilot, Halil, was superb. He would slowly rotate the balloon so everyone could see the surreal landscape, and still come near the chimneys for great photos. When we landed,he set the balloon down right on the trailer. My wife and I just thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A highlight... More

Wel organized and conducted very professionally. Pricey but safety was prioritized. Amazing piloting skills, and the balloon ride itself was just beautiful. Sets off just before sunrise so you see sun-up from mid air. We found a 1-hour flight sufficient. The pilot landed the balloon on the back of a standing truck - amazing skills. Friendly company and we felt... More

Our experience with Butterfly Balloons was flawless! Try and book online before your trip, so that you can also book a back up date. Our original date was cancelled due to weather, thankfully we were on their list for the following day also. It is an early morning, the company picks you up from your hotel and brings you to...

Great food. Orderly and on time. Staff were absolutely delightful and cheerful. They decorated the basket with flowers thereafter which was so sweet. Highly recommended ++. Thanks Halil and friends!!

I have never been in a hot air balloon and it was one of the coolest things I have ever done. The staff was really welcoming and very professional. At no time during any part of the activity did I not feel 100% safe. Our pilot was Temar and we really enjoyed him. The very was amazing and hard to... More

I had a wonderful flight with Butterfly Balloons. This was my first time taking a hot air balloon flight and it was incredible. The flight was very smooth and its very quiet. The flight crew was friendly and professional. The flight lasted for 90 minutes. After flight you get a champagne toast with desert and a certificate. I would strongly... More
