Cappadocia has unreal amazing landscape which makes Balloon flights one of worlds the top 3. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.

when you are in Cappadocia you must definitely do it. this is perfect. just make sure you do it the first thing you arrive because if you miss you chance due to weather condition, you have missed the most exciting thing you can do in all turkey.

One of best experiences in my life. You get to see how they prepare the balloon before flying. We were lucky that the weather was very nice that day, it was amazing to see a stunning panoramic view of Cappadocia along with the sunrise. Indeed it is an activity that you shouldn't miss when you travel to Cappadocia!!

It's surreal and an awe inspiring scenic experience. Just get one hour though as opposed to two hours. That way you can save some cash. If hot air ballooning is on your bucket list then this would be the one place to do it. Did this roughly 2 years ago. No regrets.

Hot air ballooning makes it most people's bucket list for a once in a lifetime experience. It surely made it to mine and I'm glad I chose cappadocia to do it. Intimidating at first, but ended up being a sedate flight over the rugged terrain of the city. The experience lasts for about an hour in which you glide at... More

An amazing experience on that I'll never forget, watching the sun rise over the hills and gliding through the valleys. A great time

There are some places where doing a hot air ballon ride is not worth the considerable expense, this is not one of them. The landscape of Cappodocia is akin to a Salvador Dali painting or something dreamed up for a futuristic fantasy film. Some places where hot air ballooning is offered are, to be honest, are complete waste of time... More

An experience in a lifetime! We did not have much time in Cappadocia and therefore tossed a coin for this experience. I am só happy heads was up and we hopped on one of these hot air balloons! The experience was incredible, hundreds of balloons surrounding you during sunrise.

We did a hot air balloon ride on our trip. It's gorgeous but make sure you ask for the first take off. There are two take off times and the second one will mean you will miss the sunrise. We made that mistake although the ride was still amazing it would have been nice to see the sunrise from the... More
