Operation was well organized. Unlike another balloon ride taken over Cappadocia in Turkey, the wait time post arrival at launch site was very minimal for balloon to be ready for take off. The ride provided a good view over key monuments and was close enough...More

It might be expensive, but totally worth it! You may get better prices booking on the spot e.g. through your hotel. Moreover, even for people with vertigo (at least for me), it should not pose any problems.

Hi, it can be a bit cool in the morning as you will be picked up around 5am. By the time you take off and during flight and for landing the sun will be up and it warms up very quick. So best bring a light jacket or jumper.
