Nothing like soaring over the unique volcanic formations in a hot air balloon. On the morning I went up, there were over 120 balloons in the air at the same time.. What a sight!

Went this morning. Fantastic. Mustafa, our pilot was an excellent host with good English and we felt very safe in his obviously experienced hands. We were the first in the air. Definitely recommend mavi ay.

which ever co use choose to use you definitely have to balloon at sunrise. Its awesome experience and seeing at least a 100 balloons in the sky together is mind blowing

Our pilot was really entertaining and we felt very safe. We were the first in the air and our pilot gave us great commentary which was great given this was our second day in the region.

But scary at the same time. But the worse about it was the very cold weather early in the morning.! GOSH! freezing!

You get up way too early, take the company bus to the Balloons, settle into a large basket which holds 16 tourists and 2 crew. The flight is great - Champagne and certificates after. Around $200 at this time - Worth it!
