Full description
Start your experience with an early morning pick-up from your Cappadocia hotel and travel in an air-conditioned coach to the local tour operator office in Göreme. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea and snacks. After check-in, watch the balloons being prepared at the take-off area. The preparation will take 15 to 20 minutes. The flight begins with the sunrise and each basket holds up to 14-20 people. Climb until you are 3000 feet from ground level and marvel at the beauty of Cappadocia with experienced pilots. Hot-air balloons can fly 1 meter close to the rocks and also above to nice and unique panoramas safely. Discover the lunar-like Cappadocia region from above and feel a rush of adrenaline. Have your camera poised to record the fairy chimneys, volcanic spires, and houses and churches carved into the rocks made extra magical by the soft morning light. After roughly one hour, your pilot will give you the last instructions for a smooth landing. Then, back on the ground, enjoy a champagne celebration and receive a special personal flight certificate to make this Cappadocia tour experience unforgettable. Then enjoy a transfer back to your hotel.

Me and my wife had a really great experience, we had an amazing pilot, find out that, when they tell you to get on the balloon, be the last ones to get in, because you will get the best view. If you are planning to come to Cappadocia the balloon trip is definitely the best show of all, amazing !!. We find it expensive (paid around 280$, for 1 hour) but we heard that the trip also can cost up to 400$ which is extremely over price.

Most incredible experience, stunning views of mother nature's power.

It has been a long held wish of mine to visit the awe inspiring Cappadocia Region. I was certainly not disappointed it was mind blowing to see how mother nature had designed these wonderful sights. The balloon ride was the best experience ever, joined with hundreds of them in the sky, creating the most magical sunrise experience. The gentle landing of the balloon perfectly on the back of a trailer was amazing feat of pilot skill. We were very lucky that the weather was good that day, the following few days the wind was not favourable and all balloon rides were cancelled making the experience for us even more of a wonderful memory and blessing. It was the greatest buzz you could wish for. Highly recommend .

Once-in-a-lifetime experience

The pick-up time was confirmed by email in advance. I was worried because it was abroad, but I was able to participate with peace of mind because the response was returned immediately. I couldn't fly with the wind the day before the day of participation, so I was worried on the day, but it still seemed to be windy, so I waited once. We wait in the waiting room for about 30 minutes. I was giving up asking for safety, but after the rising sun, I was able to fly! I was really impressed to see so many balloons and amazing views from the air. Although the morning sun was rising, it was a very beautiful view of the sunrise. Some balloons were flying just across the valley, but this approached only a single growing tree or a little closer to the rock that was popping out, so I did not do anything dangerous, so it was cheap I was able to ride with my heart.
