What You Can Expect

Cappadocia Balloon Ride and Champagne Breakfast

Cappadocia Hot-Air Balloon Ride

Your unforgettable Cappadocia hot-air balloon experience begins with a convenient pick-up by air-conditioned minivan from your central hotel. Thanks to mother nature, Cappadocia possesses one of the most otherworldly landscapes on earth. Compacted volcanic ash has been eroded over millions of years to reveal multi-colored layers,  spires and the so-called “fairy chimneys.” The best way to see it? By air, of course. 

But first, a pre-flight breakfast buffet. Enjoy a selection of pastries, fruits, meats, salad and coffee or tea to gear up for your journey. Then, go to the launch point, where you’ll meet your expert pilot and board your colorful 100-foot tall (30-meter) hot-air balloon.

Then, lift off into the atmosphere as the ground shrinks beneath you. As you fly over Cappadocia at approximately 1,000 feet (300 meters), you’ll see canyons, spires, plateaus, and, in the distance, the old volcano that helped create this beautiful landscape.

Listen to your pilot illuminate the geologic history of the region, and don’t forget to snap a few photos of this memorable event. After your smooth and safe landing, toast to your journey with a glass of Champagne provided at the end. Relax on your drive back to your central Cappadocia hotel. 

The 1-hour flight holds up to 20 people; for a more intimate experience, take the 1.5-hour ride, which guarantees a maximum of 12 people.

This was the highlight of our Cappadocia trip. Suat piloted for us, and he was very personable, funny and knowledgable about the area. I couldn and #39;t recommend this experience more, especially if you haven and #39;t been on a hot air balloon before, and cross your fingers that Suat will be your pilot!

One of the best attractions in Turkey.. a MUST TRY. The tour company was not the cheapest @ SGD300 but it definitely did not disappoint us. Live up to their No.! rating in Cappadocia.

Extraordinarily well run, highly professional, and -- most importantly -- an amazing experience. We couldn't recommend it highly enough. It's worth noting that we had our flight canceled on the first day due to inclement weather, but the company was able to fit us in on the second day. If you do decide to go, make sure you reserve a spot on the first day possible in case you run into the same situation!

Lovely experience, a must do when in Turkey!
My wife and I went for this ride on 26/08. We had our hotel pick at 4.30 am, but our flight was delayed and we reached Keyseri airport at 4 am. As we were short on time, we called up the Royal Balloon Chief Pilot Mr. Suat Ulusoy who advised us to come directly to their office/hotel. At 5 am we were served a hearty breakfast there, then divided into groups and taken to the launch field. The sight of the balloons being filled with gas was splendid. We were up in the air for about an hour, during which time we soaked in the magnificent sights of the landscape the early morning rays of the sun touching our faces is something that'll be forever in our memory, we forgot all about our exhaustion and tensions from the flight. Chief Suat kept us entertained with his jokes and by answering our queries on the intricacies of the gas balloon he also guided us about the landscape. When we landed, we were treated to customary champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate by the staff. It concluded with each one of us being felicitated with a medal as a memento of our flight. We were then dropped off at our hotel. Super happy and content with this tour.

Fantastic Tour! Seeing the sunrise was an incredible experience and our Balloon Pilot/Driver was great. She made it much more fun. Truly a must-do if you're in Cappadocia!

This was one of the highlights during my trip to Turkey. The local operator that Viator used for this was very organized and professional. They provided breakfast before the flight as well as a champagne toast afterward apparently a tradition for balloon rides. The balloon pilot was funny, entertaining, and a total pro. We landed in a field of flowers, which was great.
