What people are saying about Cappadocia

It was a wonderful experience, and it is well visited even during Corona times, we had a beautiful view of many other balloons during sunrise. Make sure to go on a sunny day, with clear weather you can see the snowy tops of some of the highest mountains in Turkey. Due to government regulations related to Corona breakfast and champaigne were not included. We were brought back to our hotel by 8:30, so even in winter you would be on time to take the Red or Green tour around Cappadocia right after the balloons.

AMAZING. I am so happy I took this 8 hours tour. We went to place where most tourist do not go because they are far away from Cappadocia area. It was really nice to see all this hidden places, and be surrounded by nature. The lunch was amazing: the best meal I had while in Turkey. So delicious and fresh. Nice choice. We did 1 hour hiking that was nice, to see the valley from a different perspective. The driver was very profesional.

from booking to flight, the experience was amazing and smooth. the tour coordinator mesut was ensuring i was kept up to date with flight details on whatsapp and told me about any changes. the balloon didn’t fly on the first day and he easily transferred reservations to the next day. the pick up was efficient and the flight itself was EXTREMELY smooth. loved it, 10/10. would definitely go again.

I booked the tour here because I found this cost effective compared with other ballon tours. The staff are helpful, communicating with me through WhatsApp about updates of the tour and it was a good weather day. The driver is also punctual, easy to communicate. I would highly recommend this tour. By the way, remember to bring warm clothes, it’s really cold when in the sky.
