        Amazing family hosting the cooking
        The homecooking class that we took was very nice. The people were very welcoming and friendly. They make you feel like you're a part of their household as well, which is very unique to them. To add, the food was amazing and the explanation was on point. Thank you from Lale and Davut

        Memories for ever…Cappadocia at its best.
        Very skilled pilot and crew. Amazing views…we were sometimes so close to the canyon walls it appeared we could touch them but pilot was always in control. We were a bit apprehensive as it was our first balloon flight ever but quickly we forgot about that and were mesmerized by the views. Highly recommended.

        We have a great time. The driver was very kind and he took photos for us. Initially we went to see the balloons took off and then we drove to a viewpoint to see the balloons in the air

        Must do Cappadocia Home Cooking
        The Cappadocia Home Cooking was the best part of our three country tour!!! The family was truly amazing and welcoming! You absolutely must do this if you travel to Cappadocia. Shirin was so helpful!

        Good agency for Cappadocia hot air balloon
        We booked Cappadocia hour air balloon ride with this agency. Their prices were very reasonable (esp being winter), and the process very easy and simple. The day before (around 12 hours before the booking time), they confirmed the hotel pickup time.

        Crews were really friendly and gave us guidance all the time in the flight. They took our photos during the flight so if you don’t have a camera, no problem! After the landing they provide us certificates and non alcohol champagne! It was such an amazing experience with them!

        5 Star Service with a smile ⭐
        I highly recommend them! ⭐ Me and my husband are traveling with my 5 year old and my 2 elder parents I booked this trip through a 3rd party app as they had a discount and they accepted 5 year olds. I informed them about my mother having limited mobility and wouldn't be able to climb up. They said that they will add stairs (to my horror we found a ladder) however, they were super nice and just lifted my mum (who btw weighs around 100kg) in the basket without thinking twice (they just lifted her without us asking). At the end the basket lands on a trolley, hence it's higher (we started to question how she was going to get down) - However, they had no problem lifting her out of the basket and landing her safely on the ground without her getting hurt. They all gave us a sterling service with a smile and humour too! They didn't complain about having to lift my mum. These guys deserve a 5 star review for their excellent handling of our situation! She wouldn't have had her wish come true if they didn't. Thank you guys 🙏

      This was one of the worst balloon rides. The management was absolutely pathetic!!!! When the bus driver came to pick us up he was on time. After that it all went downhill. The bus driver then picked up a few more people and we were on our way to the flight area. While on our way we were already seeing many of the hot air balloons take off. The bus driver stopped the bus before and looked like he had to pickup one more group. However while we were waiting in the bus he was smoking outside. We did not pickup anyone and were now on our way. After almost reaching the end, the bus driver found that one of the groups he picked up was a wrong one so we went all the way back to pick the right group. He dropped the wrong folks, picked the right ones and then took us to the fly spot. By the time we reached there almost 70% of the balloons were coming down already. The pilot then did not start the flight immediately. Apparently we were still waiting for another group to join us. They came after 10 more minutes and it turns out they were the same 2 people whom we had gone to drop. All in all, the flight that was supposed to start before sunrise around 6 AM, started at 6:45 completely ruining our experience. Absolutely pathetic management. After paying over 450$ for 2 people for a once in a lifetime thing, I think this is absolutely a bad experience. We were supposed to see over a 100 balloons in the air and by the time we were up in the air there were a mere 10-12. Also, there is a reason that they pick us up at 4-5am in the morning and tour happens at 6 am. The heat from the sun is unbearable after 7 AM which added to our bad experience. I have added a picture from our tour for reference with barely any balloons in the air. As you can see most of the balloons were grounded by the time we were in the air.

      Dear Guest, First of all, The management issue you called is not an issue dear. If there would be an issue you should have missed the flight or the timing shouldn’t be enough. But as we planned all those and consider the delays I can not see any problems with the operation. All those Balloons you see in the air were those taken off on the first flight. There are 2 flights every morning. The first one is earlier than the second. And there are take-off slots for every company (27 Balloon Companies) which are changing each morning by Civil Aviation. It is easy to misunderstand the whole process if you are only a passenger or a tourist and might seem pretty easy to operate. But Hot Air Balloon Flight Operation is very complex and depends on many parameters which tend to change at any minute. When you say you were hoping to see 100 Balloons in the air would be possible if there would be a full of 100 basket passengers and we would take off and operate with full capacity. When there are not enough passengers to fill other baskets we do not open more slots and we avoid the waste of resources. I am not sure where you would have this idea that 100 Balloons will be on the air each day. Again no one can guarantee that flight must start before sunrise or must catch the sunrise in the air, what if the direction of the wind changes for 20-30 mins? When you see 10-12 balloons in the air on the second flight that means there are only 10-12 basket people after the first flight. And can not even understand blaming us for the sun and heat in the summertime.

      Honestly a 2 is generous. I feel the business was very unprofessional. We decided to book with this company specifically because of the age range. We are traveling with a 5/6 year old and this company allows that age for the flight. We were given a pick up time of 515a. Everything was smooth, on time and then after arriving to the location we were told our flight was cancelled due to weather. We were told that we could reschedule at no charge (email from trip advisor). When trying to reschedule with an agent online they explained that the business actually change prices due to it being 9/1 (bs our original flight being 8/31)… doubling the price. Total for 4 flyers was $596.64 and new price was $1100+ USD. They tried reaching out to the business but the business would not honor the reschedule and our price.

      Very disappointed in the way the business handled this situation. I also tried reaching out via WhatsApp multiple times, with no response. Personally I feel like the business cancelled our booking to be able to charge at the higher rate. Winds were at 6 mph, max of 10mph according to the weather app, however they still cancelled due to weather.

      There are many other businesses that are rated just as high but with more reviews and better customer service.

      Overall, this was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend Skyway travel for your tour. After booking through Tripadvisor/Viator, we got a WhatsApp message from the company a few days later and they were able to give us updates closer to our trip regarding the pick up time, the weather conditions etc. For the flight itself, they had a hotel pickup and the whole ride was amazing! It was extremely smooth (especially for the landing which we've heard can be bumpy), and the pilot did a great job of maneuvering through the fairy chimneys, rising/decreasing the height at times so we get different views, and offering us beautiful views over Goreme and Cappadocia. The whole flight lasts around 1 hour at the end of which we got some sparkling juice, a flight certificate and a ride back to our hotel. We really enjoyed the whole experience and it is definitely worth the price.

      One small note is that when they give you the pickup time, that's when the general Goreme pick ups are beginning so yours may be upto 15-20 minute after that. This is not an issue but if you're flying in January like we were, make sure to wear many layers so you don't freeze in the cold

      We started our tour at 5:00 am in the hotel lobby where we were told to meet. The guide was 25 minutes late with no updates as to where he was. Worried there was something wrong with out tour we asked the receptionist at our hotel to call the company. The receptionist had to call three times to finally get a vague answer of “he is on his way”. We understand delays happen. However, we should have been kept updated with the status of our pickup rather then be kept worrying the driver was not coming.
      Once picked up the driver took us to the balloon. We were informed that due to wind there was a delay and we would have to see if they could fly. Eventually the flight was cancelled all together due to wind (we are not upset about the cancellation at all, as it was out of the tour company’s hands and we were told there is always a chance of this happening). However as we went to leave the balloon site. A customer asked if we could get out to take a photo. The driver refused to let us stop. Finally, once back at the hotel we attempted to reschedule the flight for the following day. As per policy it states “a refund or rescheduling of your flight due to cancellations”. When we went to reschedule the flight the balloon company was trying to charge an additional 90 euros more then what we had paid for our initial flight. I reached out to the company asking if we could just be moved to this flight and they refused. They wanted us to pay an additional 90 euros for the following days flight on top of the 240 we each had already paid for the first flight. After some research, we have found that some companies due this as soon as flights are cancelled they jack up the prices for the following days flight. Surprise surprise the flight when down to €240 by the end of the day. The lack of customer service in this situation was amazing. We have since booked with a different company for tomorrows flight. Please be warned they show up late and will not work with you when unexpected things happen such as cancellations due to wind, rather they attempt to squeeze more money out of you.

      As the owner of the business, I want to address the comment made by this customer. Firstly, I want to clarify that the customer's experience did not happen as they have stated in their comment. Our company always strives to provide the best service possible to our customers and we take pride in our punctuality and communication with our customers. The reason for the delay was due to the requirement for civil aviation approval for the flight, which can sometimes take longer than expected. In addition, the cancellation of the flight was due to unforeseen weather conditions, which is beyond our control. We always try our best to keep our customers informed about any changes to their itinerary, and we apologize if this was not the case for this particular customer. Regarding the customer's claim that we were overcharging for the rescheduled flight, I want to clarify that we do not have the authority to rebook flights for our customers. If there was any discrepancy in pricing, it could have been due to availability or other factors beyond our control. We value our customers' feedback and strive to provide the best service possible. However, in this case, we believe that the customer has misunderstood some of our policies and procedures. We hope to continue serving our customers with the same level of professionalism and dedication that we have always maintained.

      Excellent tour. We lucked out in that we heard the previous few days before our tour the hot air balloons were cancelled due to weather. We had great weather so we were able to go. We were mostly impressed with the soft landing. This was my third hot air balloon in different parts of the world and I’ve never seen a smoother landing. The guide was so precise in how he landed the basket right on the platform. No bending down, none of that was necessary. Very nicely done!

      We had an amazing experiences from the pick up till drop off. We arrived at the take off place around 5am and watched how they put the ballon up. The pilot was very experienced and skillful and we had an amazing flight including flying though the chimneys that was quite close to the ground and watching the sunrise at about 700m high. The whole flight was smooth, slow and calming. Magical and beyond what we expected. Highly recommended

      We took a hot air balloon ride on May 4th after our original tour was cancelled the day before due to bad weather. All tours had booked out, but they were incredibly accommodating and managed to make it work! Helpful throughout the day and very well organised. The tour itself was incredible - the driver was fantastic, even almost touching the hills at one point for bystanders who were taking photos! It was truly breathtaking with lovely people, could not recommend more

      Enjoyed our first hot sir balloon ride. The pickup was on time and our pilot was very skilled. The views of the chimney rock formations was amazing and watching the sunrise from the balloon was awesome. The pilot took the ballon up and down so well was terrific experience - flying high and then flying a couple of feet from the rocks and then landing right on the tractor trailer.

      The negative was being packed with too many people in the basket. In a small chamber there were 3-4 people. Also, the operators seem to favor their “own people” and placing them in the corner chambers which had better views.

      The staff were very nice and professional so nothing wrong with that. But when I was booking this it doesn’t specify that the take off is in a slightly different area than all the other balloons (it’s not drastically far but not in the groups of balloons). Another thing was the late take off. The other balloons started to rise a little before sunrise but we didn’t take off until maybe 15-20 mins after sunrise which isn’t terrible but might be a downside for some. Finally, I thought we would be mixing with the other balloons and getting close to flying over göreme city but we stayed over the fairy chimneys and didn’t mix with the other balloons much, just the outskirts. It didn’t feel like the full experience but still very enjoyable and beautiful. Again, the staff and pilot were excellent. Just wish I knew these little things beforehand.

      Really enjoyed this, once in a life time experience with my family .Able to see the beauty of the natural wonder of Cappadocia mountains and valleys 360 degrees up in the air . If ever you’re planning to visit this place , this is a must ..

      Skyways staff that operated the hot air ballon flights are so knowledgeable they make you feel safe specially at the air . Though the price is bit expensive but the experience is the best and worthy ….highly recommend the flight .
