“Great flight!”

We had a fantastic flight with Cihangiroglu Balloons. Our highlight was that we were in a balloon with only 6 people total! The company had two balloons, one with ~ 20 people, and another for 10-- we were quite lucky and placed in the smaller balloon, with just us and another small group. The flight was a full hour and absolutely fantastic. Our pilot was relatively new (1 year experience, but already licensed), but we also had the flight instructor in the balloon to supervise. Our flight went flawlessly and we felt completely safe the entire time. The staff were all quite nice and friendly. Breakfast was basic and not fancy, but did the trick. Overall a great experience, and I would definitely recommend the company.

We flew just this morning (26/07/13) and I can tell you the it was well worth the experience, if only once in a lifetime.
Our pilot was Alparslan and he was very skilled; even landing on the back of the truck.
The entire time we felt we were in safe hands.
Light breakfast consisted of some muffins, bread rolls, coffee, tea and some juice.
At the end we all got a certificate and a champagne celebration.
A little bit disorganised with the booking process we never really got our full discount as advertised on the website. 7 of us booked however we never got the full discounts advertised on the website as we had to split the card bookings. We paid 120 Euros which was still roughly a 30-40 Euro saving compared to other flights. All up it should have been 110 each (we'll let them keep the rest as a tip...). Probably best to call rather than email (we called to confirm everything in the end).
There were a few things I do need to mention as it clearly states on their website, "Unlike many balloon companies, we never fly at maximum capacity, usually between 10 and 20 people, with a maximum of 5 people in each compartment of the basket, even with the biggest balloon". However this was not the case. We had seven in the compartment with us, six in the one next to us and definitely more than 20 people in the balloon.
Apart from that at the budgeted price it was well worth it. I would fly with this company again if I so chose to do hot air ballooning in Cappadocia again.

We flew with a group of four people in the summer of 2012, I felt safe and took some of the most amazing pictures! We negotiated the price down and found that Cihangir Balloons was the cheapest option at $140 per person.

We flew with Cihangiroglu balloons on March 16th and had a wonderful experience. We were with a tour but I booked it separately on line.The weather was doubtful at first, but we were able to go up. The price was reasonable, pick up was right on time from our hotel. There were only 8 people on our flight so my husband and I had a space to ourselves. Our pilot, Mehmet did a marvelous job and pointed out highlights. Others who went up, with another balloon company, from our tour group experienced a hard landing but ours was perfect. The crew really was very efficient. Our thanks to them for such a unique experience. The fairy chimneys and houses in the rock were fascinating.
