One of the most romantic sceneries I’ve ever witnessed! Done the hot air balloon on my second day and kept the balloon watching for the last day. Oh, that was breath-taking. First thing to do was to see the pilots getting ready for the flight. The process is very interesting, I had no idea how they were filling the balloon. Then, the balloon took off and started flying next to many more balloons. The whole setting was amazing and when the sun started rising, all the light reflections were super. Try it! Very nice memory and such an incredible atmosphere.
I’m afraid of heights so the balloon watching was the perfect option for me. The agency made everything look easy. They offered transfers and everything. Watching the balloons was dreamy. It looks like a fairy tale. There are many balloons in the sky and they all create a dreamy view. Sunrise was phenomenal, you see the valleys getting the reflections and wow, I have no words. I took so many photos coz I knew I would never have the chance to see all these great things together. I’m incredible grateful for this experience. Recommended!
Went as a family of 5 two days ago. It was a bit tricky because of the early morning hour but I can surely say that it’s rewarding at the end! That sunrise was magical and so effortlessly atmospheric. Cappadocia doesn’t need much to look gorgeous but still, the hot air balloons in the backdrop were excellent. I really wanted to try the flight after watching them in the sky. Also the kids learnt a lot from the pilots. When they were getting ready we went there to see the process. It’s a fun experience for all. We all loved it and spend a great time watching the balloons.
