Tolga, the balloon pilot was fantastic, friendly and certainly skilful. At the conclusion of a fabulous hour of sailing across the amazing Cappadocia landscape he managed to land the basket back in its trailer.

In June 2013 my husband and I travel to Cappadocia and of course decided to try the great experience of flying in a balloon. Our receptionist recommended us this company and we made our minds and flew with them. We flew in a small basket and there were only 10 of us, our pilot Seyit, who spoke really good English was really funny, he made us laugh all the time. The flight was fantastic, Seyit explained to us where we were flying above and all the things we could see the sights were really amazing, spectacular!!! The landing was a little bit rough because of the unexpected wind but the experienced staff finally managed the situation and everything went ok... in fact this experience made the flight even funnier and we all were in perfect condition and joked a lot about it. All the staff was very nice and as I mentioned before really experienced. If we could made it again, we would choose the same company without any doubt.

Our hotel, Local Cave House, selected Urgup Balloons for us. Thanks again! Pick up, breakfast, transfer to the site were all handled very professionally. Umit, our captain, provided us with a smooth take off, beautiful views and a very soft landing (he even landed on the trailer). If you ever consider making a balloon ride, Cappadocia is the place to do it. There are so many balloon companies that professionalsm and good organisation is a must.

Beautiful trip! The staff is very friendly and funny, without being pushy. They took extra caution for safety. The winds were a bit high in the early morning. They waited until later even though other companies had left. The trip was very pleasant, and the pilot was friendly. Scenery is fantastic, recommended for all visitors!

Champagne at the end, however, was a little gimicky, but A for effort.

Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia at sunrise is absolutely spectacular and I will never forget this experience! Urgup balloons picked us up from our hotel, provided us with a light breakfast, then transported us to the balloon and back to our hotel afterwards. They also gave us a champagne toast right after we landed.

The views from the balloon were absolutely amazing and our pilot was very professional and also comical at the same time. I think that it was definitely well worth the money and it was my favorite thing that I did during my trip through Turkey!
