What people are saying about Cappadocia

Fantastic experience! Evening before flight you receive more details. You will be picked up at your hotel 30-60 minutes before sunrise, in a van. You will sign a waiver contract. The van will bring you to the place where that day the balloons will take off. This place differs depending on weather conditions. The take-off location will have lots of balloons, probably 50-100. Most balloons have 24 places, divided in 8 areas of the basket. The balloons will take off when it is still a bit dark. Once the balloon has been inflated you can enter the balloon. Most balloons will stay low for a while, so you can watch the Göreme area from low altitude. After that the balloon will rise up to 1,000 meters, offering a wide view of Cappadocia and the sunrise. After that the balloon will land on the trailer. The balloon flight is already a great experience, but the beautiful environment and the presence of many other balloons make it a fantastic experience which you will remember for a long time.

Cappadocia: Hot-Air Balloon Tour Reviewed by Ron, 10/12/2020

Great time. Good support staff on the ride. Suggest taking a mask or something to cover your nose and face. The trail is dusty. Dress can be for the weather. Shorts are fine for the ride. We had last ride of the night and it was a bit cold at the end. Crew was very attentive to everyone. My cell phone strap broke and my phone dropped to the ground. They fetched it for me. Last time I will rely on cheap strap

War sehr gut organisiert und auch die Tour Guides waren gut. Am ersten Tag macht man die „grüne Tour“ und am zweiten Tag die „rote Tour“. Ist eine gute Kombination aber man könnte es auch separat buchen, wenn es zeitlich nicht passt. Die Flughafentransfers im Shuttlebus kosten ca 3 Euro wenn man sie separat bucht.

The tour was amazing! The ATVs are really easy to use and the guide was super nice. They picked us up at the hotel, we had some stops along the way to enjoy the views and at the end they even helped us clean from all the dust with this super cool machine that blows the dust away from your clothes!
