We selected Sultan Balloons via our hostel because it was the cheapest option given to us at EUR120. The bus pick up was at 3:50am and they were very punctual. Drove us to their office where we had a quick breakfast of coffee/tea and biscuits/cakes (more like an afternoon tea than a breakfast). There were about 20 of us in... More

Was in the company of couples, friends, and a family and all were happy. Pick up at 3:45 a.m., a breakfast spread at Sultan... More

Amazing morning. Early pick up, quick breakfast and you are in the balloon before you know it. Lift off & landing was very smooth and the balloon didn't go too high. Our pilot, Rodrigo, was extremely friendly and made us all feel extremely comfortable. Champagne to finish the morning off was also a nice touch.

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
