The Balloon ride was amazing,what a way to see Cappadocia and its unique landscape.We had perfect conditions for our flight.Picked up from hotel at 5.30.The balloon holds approx 28 people but they put in about 20. Booked it through our Tour Guide.Its expensive but it is probably a once in a lifetime experience.

We booked a balloon ride through the local correspondent travel agency in Turkey named Honest Travel. It was promised we would ride for one hour and will watch the sun rise! We were excited with the attraction! It started with a late pick up at the hotel and when we arrived at the place we saw several balloons already in... More

Our experienced Pilot, Ibrahim compromised the safety conditions and was sincere to share that we were not able to view certain locations due to the weather forecast. He even shared tips of taking quality selfie pictures. Be prepared for the price and it is definitely a rewarding full hour experience that no one can take it away. The pick up... More

I was in Capadocia for two days and was very excited to go for one of the hot air balloon rides. We were scheduled to ride on the first day, but due to high winds, no hot air balloons were available. However, on the day of leaving, we had the pleasure of experiencing sunrise while standing in one of the... More

Our pilot, Nebi, was fantastic. He was funny and kept us all entertained throughout the flight. Goreme Balloons is a good company.

i had never been on a hot air balloon ride. This was wonderful and the crew was great. You are up early and it was a bit chilly when I went, but with a jacket you are fine. You go up and down and near other balloons. This was great!

High rating due to the fact that we actually got to fly! Fantastic views of the wondrous canyons and chimney formations of Cappadocia...a truly unique and unforgettable experience. Goreme team was very professional and experienced. Impressive logistics to make everything run smoothly. Full story: At this time of year, wind activities are unpredictable so there is no guarantee that the... More

Unfortunately our balloon flight was cancelled for safety reasons which is fully understandable. However we were nonetheless woken at 4.30am, driven around for half an hour collecting others from hotels and then delivered to their office where we were told the flight was cancelled. We then enjoyed driving around to drop everyone back at their hotels. Clearly the decision to... More

What can one say about flying through thee air as the sun comes up on some of the most amazing terrain amid a hundred other balloons. It's something that I will never forget. If you're nervous about the experience you should know that the pilots are highly trained and all the companies are government regulated. In fact, we left our... More
