Never mind the early wake up call cause it is all worth it. The experience is unique! Its like a dream come true….the background being surrounded with all those balloons looks stunning. We were a group of six and we all felt safe. The balloon was huge and impressive. had the opportunity to take beautiful photos especially during sun rise. they are just like a painting. I give this tour a 5 star and I will be back and do it again. Thanks Excursion Mania.
First time in Cappadocia and I’ve seen other people experiencing this, so I got a bit jealous! Booking was very easy and simple. Exchanges a few messages and that’s it, my flight was confirmed. I really liked the pilot. He was friendly and took care of us. The basket was big enough and we were able to move around and enjoy the views. My favourite moment was when the sun started rising. The reflections over the valley were insane. I took many photos of course. It was a lifetime experience for all of us! Absolutely recommended! Don’t miss it if you are in Cappadocia.
Just came back at the hotel and booked another one! What I witnessed this morning was unbelievable! Such a beautiful setting and sunrise. I’ve heard about the balloons in Turkey, but I think Cappadocia is the perfect place to join this activity. The valleys below are incredible, and the whole scenery looks like you are on a different planet. The colours, the warmth of the sun, and everything are spectacular! Definitely deserves a second flight that’s why I’m doing this again! It was breath-taking!!!
