“Experience of a lifetime”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

What an experience. From the early morning pick up to the champagne everything was perfect. We loved watching the balloons being inflated and slowly rising. Our pilot, Tolga Tekgul made sure that we had a variety of views and was very competent and informative - thank you for a wonderful time.

“wedding anniversary”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Last week my husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary flying Urgup Ballon over Capadokia - what a wonderful experience! I do warmly recommend and we had the best pilot ever - Joao Rodrigues, who to our surprise turned out to be Portuguese! was so funny and entertaining and made us feel safe and relaxed at the same time. Thanks a million!

“Dont miss this pleasure!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Great organisation, great pilot (Rodrigues - pure Turk!), everything was very funny and without any kind of feer. Starting was amasing, very smooth and exciting! Than the flying...like buble.. Moving up and down - sunrising and sunset in just few minutes! Amazing to see so many hot air baloons up at one time, and also amazing scenary of rose valley and Cappadocia! If you want to do that anytime in your life, do it in Cappadocia!

“Awesome ride”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Everyone was polite and helpful. The pilot knew what he was doing and made me feel very comfortable. The sky was filled with many other balloons as we drifted upwards. The scenery was breathtaking on the ground and in the air. This is a must do if you visit Cappadocia.

“Unmissable experience in Kapadokya!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We hired Urgup Balloons services through another company (Peerless Travel, that arranged other travel services for us as well) and were really pleased with the experience. There were around 13 people in our balloon (including the pilot), so everybody could have a great place to spot. The views are just incredible and magic. We felt really safe due to the expertise of our pilot, Seyit Unsal (besides, he was really gentle and funny). I understand that it is not a cheap attraction, but if you are in Kapadokya, it is definitely worthwhile!
