Absolutely stunning, magic experience. The landscape is beautiful, the sight of other dozens of balloons in the air is also fantastic! Our balloon pilot, Sezer Irem, was a really nice guy and had amazing maneuvering skills! Make sure you settle the price before you get to the take off site. We paid 120EUR for the ride, but were asked for... More

The actual ride was amazing and was able to get some amazing shots. The whole area is just stunning. My main disappointment was being told we would be in the air for sunrise, we were picked up at 5.30 and the sun was already on it's way up. We stood around for quite a while before we finally took off... More

We booked the balloon through our hotel (Tip: don't prebook online! It's 100 euro in town but 250 online). They gave us a 4:10AM pickup but didn't arrive until about 4:40, and since we were one of the first in the shuttle I don't think it was the fault of other passengers. When we got to the site it was... More

After having some reservation but deciding to give it a go we got up at 2.30 to leave and be on site by 3.45. There were about 60 baloons all in the process of getting ready to fly. Ours took about 20 people and it felt very safe. We took off in time to see the sunrise over the hills... More

We booked our balloon ride (a must if you are in Cappadocia!) with Goreme based on TA reviews and we loved it! They will call your hotel the night before to confirm your morning pickup time (ours was 4:15). Once you arrive on the site it's a little chaotic (especially if there are bigger groups there too) but just give... More

You have to be awaked very early ( 3 A.M) BUT...It's really fantastic to fly and be in the sky and see the sun at its sunrise.

Our experience was awesome. We were staying in goreme balloons so we had breakfast there with the oer people and then they drive us to the ballons. Everything was really organized and well planned. We saw how they prepared the balloons and then we began our trip. Our pilot was awesome (Sezer) he made the experience even better he was... More
