Ismail and his team were amazing all the time, from booking to flying! I strongly recommend the balloon flight with Sultan Balloons!

Tye ballon ride is a magicak experience. The money is totally worth it! Sultan Balloons provided a great service: pick up and drop off on time, some tea / coffee and biscuits, safety briefing, commemorative pin and flight certificate, champagne toast upon landing and amazing pilot! Ibrahim the pilot was very experienced, grazing the valleys so close you could almost... More

We booked for a hot air balloon trip in the first week of Oct2014 with them. They had no balloons...and the whole group was chasing balloons the whole of morning.. It was so frustrating. In the end we got our money refunded. Would never recommend this company to any one. Totally unprofessional

Marketed as a "boutique" balloon company, it offered a slightly lower price but without compromising its service. The food was minimal, some biscuits and tea/coffee, which was good enough for us since we had an amazing breakfast waiting for us at our hotel. The pilot was an experience Portuguese who has flown for 14 years across the world, co-pilot was... More

Fantastic experience, we were picked up from our hotel on time, driven in very sonfortable mini bus to departure location. Very smooth 'sailing' through the air, the view was just incredible. If you're tossing up whether or not to splash out, just do it, you won't regret it. Very professional pilot, ground crew and all round service.

Sultan Balloons was very professional and our pilot Rodrigo was great (Portuguese fellow who'd been ballooning for 17 years). They chose a better spot to start than many other companies, and piloted us skillfully through the valleys, skimming tree tops and rock formations, and up above everything for the most amazing views and pictures. Price is expensive, but so are... More

The balloon flight started at 6.00 approximately 20 minutes before sunrise. In this time the view of Capoddochia was great. Flight organisation was in high level, with a very soft landing :)

If you go to Goreme, you MUST do a sultan air balloon ride. Driver was exceptional, we felt completely safe. Book it through Trouble Free Tours with the 2 day tour and you'll get a good deal.

if you go to Cappadocia don't miss a balloon flight. There are many companies offering flights. We choose Sultan and it turn out it was a good choice. Ismail, the pilot offered us a very nice and beautiful flight over the Rose and Pigeons Valleys.

Our balloon trip was a fabulous experience and I would highly recommend it. Beautiful views and the landscape is incredible! Get your camera ready. It is an early start, but worth every minute. I was nervous about the trip, but our pilot was a real pro. The conditions were questionable the morning we went and so they would not take... More
