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!

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

We paid about 100 Euros each for the hot air balloon ride, try to bargain as much as you can to get a better price if you are in a bigger group. We had to get up at the crack of dawn, 4am to be exact and were picked up in a van. We had a food reception first, which... More

This activity is a must. Goreme Balloons is a must. Enough said. This is an amazing experience! Had Mohamed as our pilot and he is very informative and makes the entire ride pleasant! Ground crew was excellent as well. Highly recommended.
