I woke up at 0530 to get myself ready for them to pick me up at 0600 and they arrived on time and pick other passengers. Then they took us to their place for a breakfast. I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast because of not many choices. After that, We headed to the take off site and that... More

We had a great experience with diligent service, beautiful sightseeings and safe balloon riding. Our pilot Ali Demirbilek is not only a perfect professional with experience but also he is a talkative and cheerful person. I would like to thank once again for wonderful experience.

My first time experience with family. We've been served with turkish breakfast before depart. Liked it. Even the weather is cold, the excitement and scenery is speechless. What a great experience with beautiful view from the sky passing by valley and friendly pilot Mr. Ali very professional. Really worth it.

Had a very nice time in the balloon flight with Istanbul Balloons. We were 13 people including driver and he was very good, guided us well for landing and about the areas we were passing. Though we were flying quite low still it was fun. We were served breakfast before flight and afterwards we had a champagne party and tea... More

A MUST in Cappadocia. Amazing experience. The best logistic and driver. Very punctual. We had weather delay for the morning and they re-scheduled for the afternoon and it was even better. Excelent service.

Started off my day very early and headed to the spot where fire was lit to lift up the balloon. It was such an amazing experience and even though it was expensive, every single penny was worthwhile! The staff pampered you very well and offered a glass of champagne at the end. The balloon session took around two hours so... More

Apart from Skydiving, this would be another activity that I would not regret doing again and again. Amazing part of this activity is the sight of many other hotair balloons raising at the same time, with all difference designs. It becomes something you can never capture in repeated moments. Done in the early morning to capture sunrise as well, the... More

We booked through our Campsite and got a very good price due to the lack of tourists. Unfortunately Goreme is not receiving as many visitors due to people being nervous about Turkey and neighboring Syria. I would urge people to visit as the place is beautiful and everyone is very friendly. We were picked up from our campsite at 4am... More
