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

Could not have asked for a better bucket list experience than that provided by Goreme Balloons. From their pick-up at the hotel to their pre-flight administration and safety briefings, the staff at Goreme Balloons showed thorough professionalism with a human touch to soothe the fears of first-time "ballooners". The launch, the flight and the landing were executed flawlessly - no... More

Having seen fairy chimneys by ground, we loaded on predawn balloon with 18 others to see the region from the air. A wonderful. It to be missed experience. After floating just above the ground, we soared to great heights seeing the unique geography of the region. Our pilot, mustafa fara did a great job dropping into valleys and rising out... More

This company has got balloon rides down to a science! Each basket holds 20 people. Those 20 people arrive in the same van and stay together for the entire ride. We arrive to the processing station and have time for coffee and a biscuit, then we are off to the balloon. The basket is chest high, so there is no... More

We took a balloon ride to view the famous,unique geological features called fairy chimneys. The large, cone-like formations were created over time by erosion of the relatively soft volcanic ash around them. Past cultures have dug into them to create dwellings, castles (like Uchisar) and even entire underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, used as hiding places by early Christians.... More

The predawn Balloon flight is a never to be missed activity in Goreme, Cappadocia. We have seen many hot air balloons flying over head at our cave motel during the previous mornings with their mesmerizing multi-colour and hissing sound when they fired up the burners as they flew overhead. We were picked from our hotel at about 6 a.m.and transported... More

Pigeons have a special place in the lives of the cave dwellers of the Urgup area. We joined them with a fantastic balloon flight over the rugged eroded hills. We joined 71 other colourful balloons on a crisp morning and felt completely safe all of the time . The flight was over picturesque landscape and vegetation was breathtaking and the... More
