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

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.

Definitely another-worldy experience. Amazing float over stunning geography. This was my first ever balloon ride, but it will be my last. 12 people crammed in tightly, and if, like me, you are in the 'back' row of a section, you can't look down over the edge of the basket Once up in the air, our pilot explained what we needed...

A balloon ride in Cappadocia is a must do experience. An unforgettable day with amazing landscapes. We've booked a deluxe tour for just a few bucks more than the standard one and as it was low season we're the only ones who did it ...so we had practically a private ride! Our pilot Bekir Günes was an experienced and sympathetic... More

Wow...just do it. Amazing experience. When my husband and I were there it was rather chilly, but still so very worth it.
