We were privileged to float over the "fairy chimneys" of Cappadocia with Royal Ballon on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. Our pilot, David Stanley Parks, made the experience one to remember. Every minute was well organized including a pre-dawn breakfast. I wish we had been in the air to watch the sunrise but it was spectacular despite that. Upon our successful and SMOOTH landing we celebrated our successful journey with a champagne toast (a tradition) and pistachio cookies. David gave some narration about the area but let us enjoy the serenity of the ride also. Loved his Aussie accent. All in all it was a once in a lifetime experience and we certainly got the Royal treatment.

Was directed to Royal Balloon by our tour guide. The trip was awesome. Very professional crew on hand. Our pilot was Seniz and she could speak very good English and Japanese! The ride was smooth and not as scary as one might think. The view of 50+ balloons in the sky at the same time was awe inspiring. The price might burn a hole in your pocket but it is totally worth the trip.

What a wonderful experience getting up early and drifting lazily over the wondrous landscape of Cappadocia. Our pilot Goksel Oner was great - he was happy, enthusiastic and engaging with the children - naming my youngest son "the co-pilot" and giving a present of a balloon made from the cork of the champagne bottle as a prize

Can't compare to other balloon experiences as this was our first but we enjoyed it enormously.

We loved Turkey generally and Cappadocia in particular so I wrote up our holiday experiences at http://my-family-adventure-holiday-reviews.com/turkey/ but you can also read my other trip advisor reviews.

Best day ever. This is a must do and the whole trip was fantastic. No complaints at all. Wanted to do again as soon as we landed.

Maybe one of the more expensive but I felt very safe and it was not overcrowded in tha balloon at all

Not much to say that hasn't already been said. A really amazing experience.

Suat - our pilot, was knowledgeable and entertaining. The scenery was amazing. An hour of peaceful floating above an indescribable landscape.

Wish I could have done it again!
