I was really excited about this balloon ride but because of an incident it left behind a bad taste and I could not enjoy the rest of my balloon ride.Since I was the first person in the balloon I went and stood in one of the four corners. One of the girls who was last to get on the balloon asked me to give her space so she could get on so I moved from my corner. Once she got on she took the corner without giving it back. I repeatedly asked her nicely to move from the corner but she kept stating that the company crew had allowed her to stand in the corner which is why she came on our side in the first place. This happened all while the staff watched us argue with each other for the corner. They never intervened or apologized. I don’t think the girl was necessarily wrong or the one to blame for this and I think the company should have first asked me if I was okay with giving up my corner to give it to the other girl before allowing her to come stand there. They knew I was already standing there yet they told the other girl it was okay to take it from me. I thought it was rude and unprofessional that they did this and just watched us argue it out. If I’m ever back in cappadocia in the future I will not be using them again and will not be recommending them to anyone I know. That being said we did have an experienced pilot named Umit who got us back safely on the ground.

I can only say it was the best decision made to select Royal Balloons to take the ride. The pilot of the balloon was Tugrul and it was amazing. I felt save since the beginning, the ride was smooth and the landing was perfect. He even landed the balloon basket in the platform attached to the van. It is a was incredible! Highly recommended, worth every cent!

We had the most INCREDIBLE morning with Royal balloon! They were so professional and amazing. We can’t thank Vu our pilot enough. He was fantastic, so lovely and funny but also kept any of us that had slight nerves at ease. He also managed to get us right down close to the valleys so we could see the most incredible sights up close. It was an experience me and my friends shall NEVER forget. If anyone is visiting Cappadocia then I can’t recommend this more highly! Make sure you ask for Vu 😉👍🏼

I’m scared of heights but I wasn’t scared of this at all! The experience was amazing and our pilot Tolga spoke perfect English and was really nice. Royal Balloon is a very professional company and I would highly recommend it.
