The balloon flight was truly amazing. The pick up and drop off to the hotel was absolutely on time. no time was wasted preparing the balloon. location for take off selected for conditions of the day. Our pilot was very experienced, and ensured that everyone in the balloon had good views.
Awesome trip; Nigel was a fantastic pilot and the crew at royal balloon made us feel very safe and welcome. Would definitely do it again!
The staff were friendly and accommodating. The balloon pilot was fun, but professional, working hard to engage with all of the passengers during the course of the hour-long flight. The pilot went out of his way to provide a variety of different aerial perspectives, including close approaches to rock formations. The post-landing champagne celebration and medals were a great touch.
Amazing hot air balloon ride! Cappadocia's landscape is really stunning from above and was absolutely gorgeous from our hot air balloon. We took a million photos because everything looked so beautiful at sunrise. Definitely worth it, there was a nice breakfast snack before we left and a champagne toast when we landed. These guys really knew their business and the whole event was really efficient and super safe. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cappadocia.
I absolutely loved this experience, and is definitely on my top 2 together with the helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon! If you go to Turkey, you can´t miss a balloon ride in Cappadocia. It was amazing being suspended in the air on the balloon, and felt so peaceful and like being on a dream. The views from the balloon were incredible, being able to see the amazing rock formations, the beautiful sceneries and the other hundreds of balloons in the air. Definitely recommend it!
This was another of the highlights of the Cappadocia visit. I am scared of heights and said yes to this very quickly without thinking about it - some experiences just can't be missed! We got up very early as our ride was scheduled just after sunrise. We were provided with breakfast before being divided into groups for each balloon that would be flying that day. All the organisation was very smooth. I was quite sleepy so I wasn't really feeling nervous at that point. Our pilot in the balloon was very nice and began going up slowly so everyone would get a feel of what it was like, and kept explaining the sights our balloon was taking us to (as that depends on the air currents on the day!) and kept close to the rock formations for a while so we could get an bird's eye view of the ground below. Then later on he took us high up to join the other balloons for an amazing view. I can't remember how high we went, but the view was so beautiful and amazing (the sun had come out that day) that I could only think about taking pictures and admiring it. The descent was very smooth and quite interesting to see the balloon manoeuver. I was sad to be back on the ground! We had a champagne toast and then were taken back to our hotels. After the balloon ride we had another day of touring, which was very good but I felt quite tired, since we had tried to pack everything in just two days. I would definitely recommend doing it, as is considered one of the best hot air balloon rides in the world!
