Owner description: Discover Cappadocia! Here in Cappadocia we can fly within the valleys and around the fairy chimneys, very close to the ground and up to2.000 ft altitute. The flights are so perfect, one would think that the balloon actually had steering facilities.

“A Bucket List Experience”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Discovery Balloons made the Cappadocia sunrise balloon experience perfect. From an on-time pick-up at the hotel, smooth organization to a perfect lift-off and the culmination with a champagne toast, the experience was breath taking. Our pilot, Durmas, was exceptional, skimming tree tops, following canyons and then popping up just as the sun was rising over the hills. He seemed to time every movement for maximum enjoyment. The perfect landing was without a bump. Truly a lifetime memory.

What a beautiful way to see the sunrise. I easily would have done this 10 days in a row if I had stayed longer. An absolutely must do!

“that was amazing...”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

That was a amazing experience. Our pilot "Eray" professionally did his job. We got so excited when he get close to the erosion column. Eray is so sympathetic and easy going person. He answered all our questions with patience. His landing was so smoothly as well. I definitely will fly with him again in the future.
He deserve 5 star...
