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

Had a perfect morning yesterday with a Göreme Balloon excursion. The whole operation is run smoothly and professionally, from booking to hotel pick up to drop off. The balloon ride itself is both peaceful and spectacular. Our pilot Yasir and copilot Ibrahim were great! Ibrahim was particularly personable. Wish I could so this every morning!

Credit to Bekir Dursun for an incredible trip with Kapadoya/Goreme Balloons. He was funny and charasmatic and knows the air! If I'm ever back, I'll fly with him again! Thanks for the champagne and cherry juice! Chris

The hot air balloon ride was definitely the highlight of my two week tour of Turkey. The scenery of Cappadocia is spectacular. Our balloon pilot Muhammed was informative and entertaining and his ability to land the balloon on a trailer was mind blowing. It is definitely worth the price and the early pick-up time at the hotel and the wait.... More

A balloon flight over Cappadocia begins with a very early collection by minibus and delivery to the Goreme balloons headquarters, where they provide some breakfast. The take-off field is a wonderful sight with all the balloons in various states of inflation, with burners lighting the pre-dawn sky. The takeoff and initial climb left most of the passengers lost for words.... More
