Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Tour was a once in a lifetime experience. The staff in Excursion Mania were professional and helpful, especially Mr. Sukru during the booking process. Although this is not the cheapest thing that you can do in Cappadocia, but it is well worth. The company collects you from your hotel and return you. Pop some non alcoholic wine at the end. Everyone in the basket was very happy at the end of the day.
You really need to get up very early in the morning and travel to the site where you see the land crew preparig the all balloons for take off (there are so many of them!). The flight is like one hour in the air with 15 other passengers. The whole experience is quite lovely. I’d HIGHLY recommend to book your tickets online especially in summer season there is litreally no place. We were so lucky to book With Excursion Mania.
