Picked up at hotel @ 0545h arrived to Han restaurant and pottery factory for a quick and simple breakfast then getting back on the bus and travelled to the balloons. Depend upon season and company the amount of people in the balloon can vary. Our balloon was divided into 4 sections and a total of 16 adventurers.
Before we starts to ascend a quick safety briefing about the balloon. Then up we go, depend upon the pilot you can start below the Cappodocia valley or right in the mix of it. The tour is about 1 hr and cost 160€. At the end of the tour you get a certificate and if you want you can get badges or shirt for around 50TL and of course a glass of sparking wine.
The view if the valleys are amazing and if you lucky enough your pilot may fly you close to various "fairy chimneys". For me this was one of the highlight of the Turkey tour on the western side. We were lucky that the weather was excellent; no snow, clear sky and no wind.
Definitely deserve the tag of on of the top three destination for ballooning.
