Done this last week with my family. Book the tour and the transfers online. Simple website, user friendly, and the reservation process was easy. No complaints at all, except from the very early wake up call 😊 But, it was worthy!!! What we all felt up there was unthinkable!!! It was our first time in a balloon, and we were all so excited about it. The most iconic moment was, of course, the sunrise. Watching the sites of Pamukkale full of warm sun light in the morning is something that I will remember forever! Don’t miss it if you are in Izmir, it’s one of the best things we did!!
Such a romantic time!! My husband surprised me with a balloon flight. He knew that I wanted to experience this in my life, and made it happen!! The flight is actually very smooth, I wasn’t expecting to be like that. From up there we saw every single site in Pamukkale. The cotton castle looked gorgeous! The whole flight was so romantic, and we made some precious memories on that day. When we landed, we got a glass of champagne and had some fun with the pilots. Excellent!! I recommend this to all!
