Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

It's just amazing, very beautiful. A ride during the sun rise may be more recommendable than during sunset, becayse of the heat. But either way, it is a must-see and do.

“Underwelming is an Understatement”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Was very excited about seeing the amazing scenery of Cappadocia but ended up seeing a field.
We got up to leave and it was very foggy, after waiting an hour at the take off point for the weather to clear they decided to take to another location where they said there wasn't any fog.
After driving for twenty mins we arrive at the spot which rock formations and impressive views are conspicuously absent.
So basically we spend an hour flying over almost featureless fields, how disappointing.
If you are driven out to this location you should pull out of the trip and go another day.
complete waste of time and money.

“Highlight of an amazing trip to Cappadocia.”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I was initially a bit hesitant about making this trip as some accidents had been reported in UK press. I am so glad I decided to go ahead. We arrived to see the ballon being inflated as we had coffee and cookies. The experience itself was outstanding. We watched the sunrise and other balloons floating above us then it was our turn to board. This was the most difficult part of the trip as I needed help to clamber aboard.Once we took off it was just lovely to float up and look down on the strangest and most beautiful landscape I have ever seen.Lava formations seemed like fairytale castles and the cave dwellings could be clearly seen from the air.There was a stillness up there that was truly special and the descent after an hour was very smooth and we disembarked to champagne cocktails and a memory that will stay forever.I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

“Must do in Cap”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Cappadocia is a must if you go to Turkey, and in Capp the number one thing to do is hot air ballooning. Not sure which company we went with .. it doesnt matter they all seem to offer the same thing,
Lots of fun, great site.
If you want to do hot air ballooning then Cap is the place to do it
