In general, el.tour was very good, the balloon trip was very pleasant, as well as the tour of Goreme, the open-air museum and other activities, however, there was a little lack of communication, since I did not They informed me at what time the balloon flight picked me up until I decided to communicate, nor did they inform me that for the tour they would pick me up, it is an aspect to improve.

The balloon ride through Cappadocia is something you can't do while being there. It is very much worth it. Later in the city tour, we were lucky to be the guide in Spanish Murat. I congratulate you for being such a friendly professional and that through your eyes we met the wonder of Cappadocia and Turkey.

The balloon ride was amazing although I was disappointed we didn't get to see the sunrise as balloon was still being blown up as the sun rose. The breakfast snack box could improve...dry bun with slice of cheese not conductive to eating!! Cake and drink were good...maybe add some fruit? Mix up with balloon pick up but it got sorted!The full day tour was great, the tour guide was good with lots of information given. Length of tour was good 10am - 4pm.
