What people are saying about Göreme

Such an incredible experience. Worth every penny. I thought I would have been nervous or a little scared, but it was so smooth and stable under your feet. We were in the sky for about an hour and this was during the winter months. Breakfast was a bag of snacks and a juice box. Super basic. Because it was winter, I have to mention, it was freezing. Almost unbearable and I was dressed for it. Wear your warmest clothes if it’s the winter time

10/10 experience! Ail Polat our pilot was fantastic and very talented at flying! I will take this experience away with me forever as one of the best

Enjoyed. Great staff and safe route. Was worried since I had a 11 year old but it was very safe
