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 is by air.

First, enjoy a pre-flight breakfast buffet. Indulge in a selection of pastries, fruits, meats, and salad with 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 (30-meter) tall hot-air balloon.

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 geological history of this region, and don’t forget to snap a few photos of this memorable event. After your safe-and-smooth 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, choose the 1.5-hour ride, which guarantees a maximum of 12 people.

The best way to see the magical places in Cappadocia. The Captain had a great sense of humor and gave detailed but concise history of the attractions. The breakfast served before the ride was great and after the ride we were given gold medals, champagne drinks , cookies and strawberries. This tour is definitely awesome!

Purely professional.... The scenery of course is spectacular in its own right, but add to the pre dawn light another 90 hot air balloons
This was my second ever balloon flight, I found Tolgaour pilot loves to have a joke to make everyone feel a little easier, but on the other hand he was very professional, and a bit cheeky. He landed on the support crew trailer. So, no bumpy landings with these people. Highly recommended. You cannot visit Cappadocia and not do this trip. Yes it was a little more expensive than some of the other operators, but some were landed after 45 minutes! Not sure if the other operators offer the traditional champagne at the end of the flight

WOW! There's a long list of balloon tours you can take in Cappadocia, but this is THE ONE. Between the hotel pickup, substantial breakfast, courtesy of the pilots and staff, and the actual ride, this was an epic experience.

Best experience ever. Easily booked my tour online like one day in advance. Was picked up next morning, had a lovely buffet breakfast and off we went with Suat U., our pilot, who made us feel comfortable from the beginning. What a memorable experience. Thanks!!!

I am so glad that I decided to take this balloon ride. Tugrul was an amazing pilot. He was so funny and entertaining. Do not expect breakfast to be anything amazing, but it is a buffet with several options. Pick-up was prompt, and we made it in time to see the sunrise. Do not pass this experience up! Royal Balloon is definitely the company to use for this type of tour. I will be back!

Taking a hot air balloon ride over the captivating region of Cappadocia, with its unique rock formations, was truly magical and an experience we will never forget. What made the experience exceptional was our pilot, Suat. His passion for history and exceptional expertise as a balloon pilot combined with his excellent command of English and a great sense of humor made this an incredibly memorable and fun experience. Thank you, Suat and Royal Balloons!

Absolutely awesome. Truly wonderful. Everything was sheer bliss although breakfast beforehand was a bit rushed. Clearly competent pilot, perfect weather, exceptional scenery and so quiet and peaceful smooth landing. Loved eating chocolate strawberries with champagne in the field afterwards. Would love to do this again.

This company is very professional and a class act. Picked us up on time, provided a wonderful breakfast, and the balloon tour was an absolute surreal experience. recommend the 90 min tour which provides less people in the balloon basket which is much better for viewing and for maneuverability of the balloon. Our balloon pilot was excellent and very knowledgeable.
