This was the best experience of my life! The company picked us up right from the hotel door. My friend was able to come along for the ride even though she didn't pay. They fed her breakfast and took her around to see the sights! Best company ever!!

The highlight of my trip to Turkey was the balloon ride with Urgup Balloons. The ride was professionally organized and was very safe. Our pilot was Levent Kocabas. He was a really good pilot and made us feel comfortable and safe. The most important aspect of a balloon company is the safety they provide to the passengers and Urgup Balloons... More

We were picked up at 0400 as scheduled. Coffee and snacks were provided as promised when we arrived at the office for registration. After registration, we were taken to the take off site and after a brief safety induction we were flying. Our pilot was Levent Kocabas who was professional, confident and ensured an amazing experience. The entire Urgup team... More

I have experienced balloon rides before but Urgup Hot Air Balloons in Cappadocia is a whole new level all together. The balloon pilot Halan Hamabi expertly pilots the balloon between the cone-shaped rock formations for a very different vantage point having hike thru a few of them the previous day. After this portion where you can really see the formations... More

This was my first hot air ballooning experience. It was amazing and a must do for anyone visiting the area. My only dissatisfaction was that it didn't last longer. Ours was one of the last up and the first down, not sure why, perhaps something to do with the wind. FYI, if the weather is bad they will not fly... More

There are multiple balloon tour companies in Goreme and the surrounding areas. We stumbled upon this one thanks to our hotel (Miras Hotel). They arranged all transport. The pilot was friendly and safe and it was an altogether organized experience. The views are absolutely insane. As someone who is afraid of heights, it was a little unnerving, but altogether one...

If you are in Cappadocia please ensure you book the hot air balloon experience with Urgup Hot Air Balloons. Excellent service, beautiful ride, and superb landing! The pilots are friendly and are happy to give you an overview of the area you are covering whilst in the air. Complete you trip with a toast of champagne and you are even... More
