What people are saying about Ürgüp
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.
Due to covid I opted for private tour. It’s totally worth it instead of going in a group much cheaper and we could finish all within time. Visiting carpets making shop and pottery shops are worth to know how they are doing but as they handmade very expensive not affordable. So if not interested just say upfront to the guide to avoid. Overall trip was very good I totally received who does not like to travel with group or who has plan to visit only certain places.
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.
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.
