Cappadocia has unreal amazing landscape which makes Balloon flights one of worlds the top 3. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.

A must, view of the rocks is spectacular and the experience of watching sunrise on a hot air balloon is recommended. Staff are good, you might need a jacket as it's a little cold in the morning

My wife and I took the balloon ride in May 2016. The weather was perfect. We were captivated by the magnificent scenery from the above, at all level of heights. The other balloons in our surroundings added the colors of the panorama. We were busy taking pictures and enjoying the moments all together. I don't remember many experiences as breathtaking...

We did the balloon ride in May 2015. Really glad we took the time to see the area by the quiet of a balloon. The pilot did a nice job taking off and landing and we got some fantastic photos. When we got home we discovered that this is one of the top areas to balloon. We did Bagan, Burma... More

We had a fantastic ballooning experience in Cappadocia, wakes up at 3:30am and moved from the hotel at 4:20 to had a quick break fast in the midway, after some 10 minutes we arrived to the place where balloons are getting ready to fly. We caught the inflation process which is started first by powerful fans (cold air) then when... More

when you are in Cappadocia you must definitely do it. this is perfect. just make sure you do it the first thing you arrive because if you miss you chance due to weather condition, you have missed the most exciting thing you can do in all turkey.

One of best experiences in my life. You get to see how they prepare the balloon before flying. We were lucky that the weather was very nice that day, it was amazing to see a stunning panoramic view of Cappadocia along with the sunrise. Indeed it is an activity that you shouldn't miss when you travel to Cappadocia!!

It's surreal and an awe inspiring scenic experience. Just get one hour though as opposed to two hours. That way you can save some cash. If hot air ballooning is on your bucket list then this would be the one place to do it. Did this roughly 2 years ago. No regrets.
