This was a totally amazing experience, and my main reason for visiting Cappadocia, Ismail and his team made this a really special experience and I'm so glad to be able to say I did this. Sure you have to get up early - pickup is normally around 5.00am and it's pretty cold but it really is amazing. Comfortwise I would... More

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

If in Cappodocia or planning to go, organise a balloon trip. This one of the most breathtaking areas and the best way to see it is in a ballon. The pilots are competent and the support staff are very helpful and caring. There are lots of companies, we used Sultan Balloons- they were great.

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
