We were very disappointed to have our flight cancelled one day due to very strictly enforced rules regarding balloon flights which we recognise. However next day, conditions perfect which also describes how Istanbul balloons conducted proceedings. From 4:30am pickup to return the experience was fantastic. Our pilot Yasar Acan is very skilled and did things with our balloon that I didn't know could be done. He was informative as much as he was skilled. The thrill of ballooning with 70+ other balloons was unforgettable. Brilliant!
