Our balloon ride experience was supurb. There were only 16 in the basket and Rodrigo, the pilot, gave us stunning views with interesting comments along the way. We felt very comfortable and definitely got our money worth on this trip.

Our pilot was very professional and had lots of experience. We always felt safe. He was very knowledgeable and constantly gave comment as we flew over the landscape of Cappadocia. We had a Spanish couple in our group and he also commented in Spanish.

My fiance and I went on the Sultan Balloon ride this morning at sunrise and it was an amazing experience. Our bus was a bit late, they didn't have enough 'breakfast' for all of us. Breakfast was just a bread roll and tea. But the experience was amazing. It cost 120 euro for the balloon ride and our airport transfer... More

The balloon ride in Cappadocia is iconic. Beautiful. Magical. As was ours. We were picked up on time. But there was no greeting. No introduction. Business's only. The "breakfast" was packed cookies, tea, and a bread with cheese in it. The pilot, capable perhaps, was virtually not understandable. Even during the safety part. He rarely pointed out the features of... More

We recommend this company for a balloon ride in Goreme; picked us up right on time (0440), coffee, tea, and small bites to eat available when we got there (tho coffee was cold) 16 people max in balloon which allowed for more room, solid hour of flying time, mix of flying high and low to ground, we were confident in...

We booked our balloon tour with Sultan balloons. We were picked up at 4:30 and got to the site at around 6am. We were served cheese bread, cookies, wafers, and tea or coffee. The ride was 1hour long and we were able to see such awesome views. Afterwards, we were served non-alcoholic champagne. It's a shame but apparently it is... More

A great safe Journey with a good experienced Pilot, Rodrigo. we enjoyed every second of our flight. the Pilot and Co-pilot were very good at what they are doing. After a smooth landing, they gathered us for celebrating the safe flight by popping Champagne bottles. Would highly recommend.
