Brilliant fun and fantastic views. Confidence building standards of kit and quality of piloting. One of the very best things we did in Turkey.

We brought 30 VIP clients on tour of Turkey and several of them wanted to experience ballooning in the Cappadocia region. We used Mavi Ay Ballooning company and many of us were nevervous and had never done it before but the Mavi Ay employees made us feel at ease and before we knew it we were soaring above the rock formations and couldn't have felt more comfortable. It was awe inspiring and an experience that we all will never forget. Our landing was very smooth and well organized. We even celebrated with a champagne toast and a certificate to remember the experience.

Ballooning is not a cheap experience, and it is not always a safe one in a less developed country like Turkey.
For the safety aspect, you want a company that trains its pilots without taking shortcuts and has experienced people. Our pilot was brilliant, and turned ballooning into an almost thrill seeking experience, with his ability to take us to within almost arms reach of the fairy chimneys and close enough to pick the fruit off the trees (but it was winter, so no luck there). Then, when we'd had enough of that, we'd soar up high for some perspective on it all.
On the making the most of the money front, the best way to ensure value is not to go up on one of the cattle truck style baskets with 20 or more people in them. Mavi Ay have baskets of a size to accommodate as few as 4 tourists, or you can get a large one if you like. I'd really recommend the smaller size. Ours had 8 tourists in it, just our family and one other.
Mavi Ay is operated by Turks, which I like, but they are trained to international safety standards. A beautiful place to do it, and this is a great company to trust.
