Royal Balloons was recommended by our hotel and we were NOT disappointed. We were picked up at 5:15 and taken to their Head Office for a buffet breakfast (basic, but satisfactory). We were then loaded into mini-vans and taken to the launch site which was only about 5 minutes away. We watched our balloon being filled and then we were up, up and away! It was a bit squishy with four of us in one of the four compartments (13 passengers and the pilot altogether). Our pilot/ guide, Suat, was fantastic! He was hilarious and felt comfortable bantering with the passengers (my husband, in particular) and offered lots of information on the sites we were seeing. We soared up into the sky as the sun was rising - it was absolutely spectacular. At least 100 other balloons were in various stages of flight as well, and it was a very mystical, magical feeling being up there. The scenery was amazing as we passed fairy chimneys, rock houses, the town of Goreme, and miles and miles of agricultural landscape. We were up in the air for about an hour and then had a very soft landing, where Suat managed to get the basket to land exactly on the trailer that was used to tow it. Impressive! We were treated to champagne, medals were passed out, and we were then driven back to our hotel. It was a fabulous, never-to-be-forgotten experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Cappadocia.

A hot air balloon ride is must when you are in Goreme. We used Royal Balloon for this fantastic experience. Our captain, David Stanley Parkes, was great. Very informative. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Breakfast was provided. We also celebrated the end of our balloon ride with champagne and cookies. The ride itself was magical. It was very peaceful. The landing was very smooth. I highly recommend this activity with Royal Balloon. Exceeded our expectations.

We went on the king flight with royal balloons and it was an incredible experience! Our pilot (David) was friendly and laid back, giving us alot of information about the surrounding valleys as we flew. Our flight cost 150 euro per person and we definitely felt it was worth it. We only had 8 people in our basket which gave you plenty of space to take photos. Would recommend royal balloons to everyone visiting Cappadocia!

If you are at Cappadocia region, you must go for balloon tour.
Then you start searching for a company, comparing prices... No need!!!
Book your flight with ROYAL BALLOON. They have own hotel - Royal Stone Houses. And will hell you all sort of tours.
Choosing them, you will get best service and quality in everything. and will find out prices are very reasonable!
As we were staying at Royal hotel. We had good rest at comfortable room. Went down. Had pre flight breakfast. Registered. Atmosphere was fantastic already. I think, as always at this place. Buses were ready outside. Short drive to take off point. And here we go!!!
Our pilot Nigel started tour right from hotel. Which is meeting point for everyone. Talking to all passengers. Explaining what are we doing and what is next. Some stories and for sure pointing at all significant sights.
Balloon was waiting for us. It was beautiful and very safe journey. With all Nigel's touring experience and style - twice more joyful! And hundred balloons around is impressive.
After landing we had ceremony. With drinks and medals )))
Then been dropped back to hotels.
Then you have all day ahead.
You may book more tours with Royal or repeat flight next day! :)
Have a nice flight with Royal Balloons!
