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.

Based on brilliant reviews on this site, I booked myself on Mustafa's basket for 1h flight and all the good things I read were so true. He is so funny yet highly professional. Heard from someone that they paid much less to other operator but they were with more than 20 people in the basket and couldn't stand in the front line to enjoy full view. This was not the case for my Butterfuly experience. Payment and waiting were very smooth and efficient.

Chances are if you're coming this way..you're going to go ballooning, it's one of the major draws and the reason a lot of the people come. No matter who you go with, it's a major chunk of change so most important thing is you have no regrets at the end..."I wish it was....or I was expecting...." Everything was executed flawlessly, professionally and made for a memorable trip. It wasn't over crowded, they fed us before and after and scenery and trip was memorable.

We really pleased that we chose Butterfly Balloons for our first ever balloon trip. Mike, our pilot was very professional and gave a wonderful commentary during our flight. It was an incredible experience ballooning over such an amazing landscape which we had explored on foot a few days before.

Considering the recent Ballooning accident in Egypt, we were a little nervous about putting our lives into the hands of a hot air balloon pilot. Butterfly Balloons was totally professional, organized and efficient from the pick up at our hotel through to the champagne after landing.

My husband and two friends delighted in their adventure with Butterfly balloons, but I stayed behind due to fear of heights. As I watched the 70 balloons rise above me from the terrace at my hotel, I couldn't figure out what balloon was theirs. Soon, they were all drifting away and over another valley. Out of the corner of my eye, a balloon came over a ridge and floated down into the valley in front of me. Ecstatic, I realized it was a butterfly balloon, and it was coming straight for me. It floated within a stones throw from the terrace at my cave hotel, and I could see my husband and talk to him. This moment was incredible, as all of the other balloons were long gone, and few came down so close to the fairy chimneys. My husband and friends said their pilot was so funny and entertaining while very experienced. We would highly recommend this leader in the region. Professional, experienced, and all the other companies seemed to fly if Butterfly balloons was flying, depending on their wisdom and experience.
