Cappadocia: Hot Air Balloon Flight
- Transportation included
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 2 hours
This tour was absolutely exceptional! I went with my parents. Our guide, Jan, was amazing and very descriptive. The tour was a perfect combination of beauty and history. Plenty of time for photo ops and enough time for souvenir shopping. We saw everything that was already listed, but the service, company, and sites exceeded our expectations. The COVID-19 measures were great. We wore masks and sanitized frequently. In Goreme Open Museum, Jan also took us through a great route to avoid stressful walking, while making sure we saw everything. The guide was tremendously friendly and knowledgeable. I normally have ample questions and he explained everything in great detail! The guide’s friendliness and exceptional delivery of knowledge exceeded our expectations. If you go on this tour however, make sure to ask everything possible! There are so many unique stories for instance how places are named, details of the civilizations, etc. Overall, fantastic tour and would 100% recommend.
It’s totally worth the early morning start. Are getting picked up from the hotel at 6:30am, we were driven to an open lot where other balloons were getting prepped as well. Wait time is about 20-30 minutes. Once the balloons are inflated with hot air and steady, everyone climbs up into the basket (which is divided into sections so you and your +1 have your little space) and then the pilot takes off. The scenery in Capadoccia is very beautiful. I was able to propose to my fiancée when we were at the highest point. Honestly, there isn’t anything I would change. Everything was perfect
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.
This is a tour to never forget. Especially when you get to drink their mulled wine up on the mountains looking at the valley and the caves churches and houses in the back. The scenery here is unreal!! We are amused by all Capadoccia in general. But again doing it on a horse ride makes it more enjoyable.
We enjoyed the tour a lot. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable and with outstanding English, he gave us a lot of information during the tour and made it more interesting. The tour itself is amazing as well, we enjoyed the breathtaking views as well as a lunch in a very authentic floating restaurant.
