It’s totally worth the early morning start. Are getting picked up from the hotel at 6:30am, we were driven to an open lot where other balloons were getting prepped as well. Wait time is about 20-30 minutes. Once the balloons are inflated with hot air and steady, everyone climbs up into the basket (which is divided into sections so you and your +1 have your little space) and then the pilot takes off. The scenery in Capadoccia is very beautiful. I was able to propose to my fiancée when we were at the highest point. Honestly, there isn’t anything I would change. Everything was perfect
We flew with Kaya balloons. The pilot was great. Brought us really deep and close to the valley. We were the first couple balloons to be up in the air and we were able to see sunrise. Highly recommend bringing sunglasses. Champagne service returned but no breakfast yet due to covid 19. One hiccup was they had no idea we paid via getyourguide and asked us to pay multiple times. They did let us on after I pulled out receipts and bank statements showing I paid for the activity.
The team was fantastic. Asked specific information quickly for their requirements...names n passports, etc Informed process n said further instructions are forthcoming ....n they were with weather canceling the next morning. They kept in constant touch n offered an afternoon which was not possible n we continued to the next morning Very professional n competitive price....least expensive. Pilots did great...bi lingual explanations. Overall just a magnificent experience
Due to covid I opted for private tour. It’s totally worth it instead of going in a group much cheaper and we could finish all within time. Visiting carpets making shop and pottery shops are worth to know how they are doing but as they handmade very expensive not affordable. So if not interested just say upfront to the guide to avoid. Overall trip was very good I totally received who does not like to travel with group or who has plan to visit only certain places.
Our day was incredible, without our professional tour guide, i think Mohammed was his name, wouldn't be the same. I am sorry if I mixed up his name, but I hope he will accept my apologies :) he is a true book of knowledge, he managed every single our wish, he did everything to make our day unforgettable! Thanks again, I would totally recommend this tour to everybody!
