A different experience

This is one of a life time experience. You will see different rock formation. See the city from above, the valley. Very nice view.

We chose Cihangiroglu for a special occasion. And we got the best experience we could have asked for. The company even arranged for a very friendly colleague of theirs to accompany us and help with taking our photographs. Drinking champagne while watching the sunrise and the beautiful Capadoccia landscape was a surreal experience. The flight itself was very smooth and... More

We booked our flight through this company, not cheap at 150 Euro each.. we were told pick up would be at 5am... we were still waiting at 6:10am... no one turned up to pick us up. All balloon flights had been cancelled that morning so no one was flying, but we were left waiting with no contact, phone, email, direct... More

I can understand that you were disappointed that you could not fly with us, but you must realise that Cihangiroglu Balloons will never cancel a confirmed booking unless absolutely necessary. This may happen if we find that the weather conditions are incompatible with passenger safety, which is always our priority. Since you had booked via your hotel and we had... More

My friends and I had taken a hot air balloon ride in Uchisar, Turkey in September 2014. We had not made any arrangements till we reached Cappadocia but with the help of our local guide, we booked for a ride with Cehangir Balloons. It would, probably, have been cheaper if we had booked online, but no complaints as we had... More

約好當天清晨5:55會到我們民宿外面接送,我們5:50就走到門口等,因為民宿沒有大廳,只能站在門外等。結果等了40幾分鐘,等到6:30車子才來!!! 司機什麼也沒說就火速把我們送到熱氣球出發地,早餐就在熱氣球旁邊擺個桌子隨便擺幾樣東西,讓我們在戶外站著吃(在-13度的清晨!!!) 我跟我男朋友也沒有心情吃,一到現場就找負責人問,希望得到補償與誠意的道歉,結果得到的回應是一張臭臉和非常差的態度:「不會有任何補償,你們要搭就在這張紙上簽名,不搭就回去!!!」 從頭到尾甚至沒有一句為了他們誇張的遲到而道歉。 當然我們選擇不搭就回民宿了,隔天找了Urgup balloon 公司,體驗到真正好的熱氣球飛行。 1.They told us that they will come to our hotel to pick us up at 5:55am, but we wait until 6:30!! And because there's no lobby in our hotel, we have to wait outside for 40 minutes, in the freezing winter morning. 2.After we were drop off at the destination, we went to... More

First of all I would like to say I am sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at your hotel but I would suggest you take this up directly with the hotel. Most hotels in Cappadocia let you stay in the lobby or reception area while waiting for your transfer. I would like to correct some aspects of... More

We had a fantastic flight with Cihangiroglu Balloons. Our highlight was that we were in a balloon with only 6 people total! The company had two balloons, one with ~ 20 people, and another for 10-- we were quite lucky and placed in the smaller balloon, with just us and another small group. The flight was a full hour and...

We flew just this morning (26/07/13) and I can tell you the it was well worth the experience, if only once in a lifetime. Our pilot was Alparslan and he was very skilled; even landing on the back of the truck. The entire time we felt we were in safe hands. Light breakfast consisted of some muffins, bread rolls, coffee,... More

We flew with a group of four people in the summer of 2012, I felt safe and took some of the most amazing pictures! We negotiated the price down and found that Cihangir Balloons was the cheapest option at $140 per person.
