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.
We flew with Kaya balloons. The pilot was great. Brought us really deep and close to the valley. We were the first couple balloons to be up in the air and we were able to see sunrise. Highly recommend bringing sunglasses. Champagne service returned but no breakfast yet due to covid 19. One hiccup was they had no idea we paid via getyourguide and asked us to pay multiple times. They did let us on after I pulled out receipts and bank statements showing I paid for the activity.
The team was fantastic. Asked specific information quickly for their requirements...names n passports, etc Informed process n said further instructions are forthcoming ....n they were with weather canceling the next morning. They kept in constant touch n offered an afternoon which was not possible n we continued to the next morning Very professional n competitive price....least expensive. Pilots did great...bi lingual explanations. Overall just a magnificent experience
amazing experience overall to see the area from above; however there were too many people packed in the balloon, and would have liked the instructor to give us some information/background of anything we were flying over.
Everything was perfect! The driver was so helpful and pleasant, the whole journey went smooth, would definitely recommend!
