Owner description: Floating effortlessly just an arms stretch away from the tops of the fairy-chimneys, fruit trees and then ascending high above the ice cream coloured ravines, this is simply the best way to travel above the valleys of Cappadocia.

“Fantastic experience,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

I concur with all the great reviews already posted. We had a total of 4 kids on our flight (2 were ours ages 5&9) and another family had a 3&6 yr old. Khan was our excellent pilot, very funny with perfect English. We launched in a different spot than the other companies which was much farther out of town and thus allowed us better views and more valley coverage. We flee for over an hour and the flight was absolutely magical. Khan was able to land the balloon on the back of the truckbed, amazing! And we enjoyed champagne, juices and cake. The kids were all treated extra special and participated in the roll upon the balloon and a fun game afterwards. We all enjoyed photos, certificates and first class service. This is a must do when in Goreme and Butterfly Balloons is highly recommended. It is a very early morning (5am pickup) but the processitzelfis very smooth. This was the highlights of our trip to Turkey!

“Butterfly was a great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

There are so many rave reviews about Butterfly that I can't really add anything new. Everything about our experience was 5 star with all the logistics managed seamlessly which is amazing on a day when the pilots changed the take off site twice because of changes in the wind. Kaan was our pilot and he is certainly very experienced, but what made it really special is that he genuinely seems to enjoy his job - making jokes and pointing out things along our flight. With only 12 people in a max 16 person balloon, we all got excellent views for 65 minutes flight. Thanks Kaan and Butterfly - our flight was a highlight in Turkey.

“Safe and fun experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

It was most talked about in travel books and so I decided to take a ride up with my hubby.
The experience is great and we saw a landscape that looked like from a fairy book. It did look different from the top....more dream-like.

“Breath Taking!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Don´t even think about booking with another company!!
This is by far, the best, most organized and safe company. We had the best experience ever, with the nicest crew from the pilot to the guys that were waiting for us at the landing site where they contributed to have an awesome post flight time.
