“Must be there!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Royal Balloon is extremely professional and gave us the chance to live an unforgettable experience. The ride is a bit expensive but worth every minute of flying over Gorëme, in Cappadocia. The view will be in your memories forever. A must!

“Hot Air Ballon- Cappadocia”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Flying with Royal Ballon was amazing. I was there with my family during the month of may and we all felt we got the royal treatment! We had a very high degree of confidence in the company and in our pilot who did a good job at describing the terrain. witch by the way, was really worth seeing by air. We have the most memorable photos of our entire trip. Cappadocia's landscape is probably best seen by ballon. Great value for the experience. When we landed we enjoyed champaign and the friendliness of the entire staff. A must!

“Safe flight take-off and landing”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

I've been looking forward to a hot-air balloon ride since this Turkey trip was planned. My sister and I went with Royal Balloons in a small hot air balloon, captained by Göksel Öner. We arrived at the office where we had breakfast and was driven to the take-off site sometime around sunrise. There, we observed the inflating of the balloon, and was helped onto the balloon.

The ride itself took about an hour. The gorgeous landscape was accompanied by some narration about the local sights and the process of getting the balloon into the air, so on and so forth. What makes this the best experience are the safety measures taken and taught to us. The captain took care to explain what he was doing and what was happening, and the safe take off and landing helped to ease my sister's nerves. We even got medals and a ceremony at the end, a perfect way to cap off the experience!

“Must do it!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Royal balloon gave us an incredible experience. From the punctual pick up in a luxury van, to the buffet breakfast and the impeccable organization. But mostly by putting us in a balloon with one of the best pilots in the world, which gave us an
incredible flight and historic tour. It is pricy but it is worth it!

“Don't miss this memorable experience!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Air ballooning in Cappadocia was probably one of the best activities I've done on all my holidays. The feeling of looking at to such a nice view from high up in the sky on a gentle ballon flight is just impossible to describe.

We were recommended this ballon agency by our hotel (Argos) and we were very satisfied. After picking you up at your hotel, you are taken to a small cottage to have breakfast. When you arrive there is already a list of all the people flying that day, and you are assigned a certain table number for having breakfast which coincides with the bus number which will take you to the departure area (nice touch since you might be very sleepy after waking up at 5:30 am and things are hard to memorise). They help you entering and exiting the balloon and while flying the pilot explains how the balloon works and what villages are on the landscape.

After landing, a quick cocktail is prepared: everyone receives a medal and drinks champagne! :)
It was a wonderful morning!

Tip: you can fly either for 1 hour or 1.5 hours. We took the 1 hour flight and I think it was enough!
