Full description
Your Cappadocia experience begins with an early morning pick-up at your hotel and a drive by air-conditioned minivan to the hot air balloon launch field. When you arrive, you’ll meet your experienced pilot and receive a safety briefing as the crew prepares your balloon. Each basket holds from 12-20 people with plenty of room to comfortably view the scenery below. Climb aboard and feel the adrenalin rush as your balloon ascends into the sky for the safe, scenic 1-hour flight (or 1.5-hour flight if you choose the extended or private option). As you glide along at 600 meters above the ground you’ll marvel at the views over the stunning lunar-like Cappadocia region. Gaze down at the fairy chimneys, volcanic spires, craggy cliffs, and plateaus, and look for churches and houses that have been carved into the rocks as you soar over the valleys. Sculpted by wind and floodwater over many millennia, the contoured rock formations create what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most unique landscapes. During the flight the pilot will describe the sights and identify hidden gems and points of interest. As your time in the air comes to an end you’ll receive instructions for a smooth landing. Back on the ground, you’ll be presented a special, personal certificate to commemorate your flight. Enjoy a light breakfast and a Champagne toast. The experience concludes with a drop off at your hotel.

Good ride, wasn't in time. Thought they would pick us up.

I stayed on a hotel in capadoccia. According to the information on their activity, the pick up time was 4:30 am. Surprisingly they picked us up at 6 am. I thought they wouldn't come. They didn't even called me or emailed me to tell me the hour they would come.
