So what I would say is: book with Excursion Mania and get very good service!
Our experience of Pamukkale Balloon Tour started at dawn. A delicious breakfast, followed by a good coffee, then we were off to the launch site near the white cliffs of Pamukkale. We were in the basket and with around 14 people, to be honest all people in the basket were speechless as we took off and face with the amazing sceneries Pamukkale and Hierapolis. This was an experience of a lifetime! The pilot was a friendly Turkish with over 15 years ballooning experience. Perfect landing right near the support vehicle’s, the team was ready and waiting. We finish the tour with a bottle of Champagne. The crew was waiting with a birthday cake as they knew the flight was a birthday present from my wife. Make sure you have plenty of space on your camera. This is an amazing tour with amazing people, highly recommended.
From the very beginning of the balloon flight till they drop me off back to my hotel, these guys are truly professionals. I am so happy to choose these guys after I read many positive reviews about them on their website. Let me thank to Mr. Mehmet who as always on the other side of the phone, answered all my questions with patience.
Captain Ali was a real pro. He knew where to take us and show us the most beautiful scenic places, though we were at the mercy of the wind. His flying skills and manoeuvring of the balloon was excellent so that everyone on each side could see the sights comfortably. We were flown through the best parts of the Pamukkale. It was a great experience and once in a lifetime experience for me and my wife.
