    Cappadocia is great, a place must visit. But the communication with the Reservation coordinator (Muset Belge) of this operator is below satisfaction. They never provide details like pick-up time proactively and reply your email really late and sometimes just don’t even bother to reply. The...More

    We are particularly disappointed because our booking in Cappadocia was mainly motivated by this baloon activity. In addition the weather is not responsible for this cancellation because we saw other balloons flying that day. We really feel that this activity was canceled because we were...More
