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
It was a wonderful experience, and it is well visited even during Corona times, we had a beautiful view of many other balloons during sunrise. Make sure to go on a sunny day, with clear weather you can see the snowy tops of some of the highest mountains in Turkey. Due to government regulations related to Corona breakfast and champaigne were not included. We were brought back to our hotel by 8:30, so even in winter you would be on time to take the Red or Green tour around Cappadocia right after the balloons.
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
from booking to flight, the experience was amazing and smooth. the tour coordinator mesut was ensuring i was kept up to date with flight details on whatsapp and told me about any changes. the balloon didn’t fly on the first day and he easily transferred reservations to the next day. the pick up was efficient and the flight itself was EXTREMELY smooth. loved it, 10/10. would definitely go again.
