2. Impressive excursion!!!! Went last week on this with some friends and family members. We all liked it and recommend it to all of you! The overall organisation and schedule of this tour was excellent. Clean hotel, cool restaurants with tasty food and a friendly tour guide. Cappadocia is a place to visit for sure, but if you have some extra days opt-in for this tour to experience the hot air balloon flight. First time for all of us and we were thrilled to see all these views from above! Another super highlight was, of course, the valleys in Cappadocia. The rocks and the colours are insane!!
