Full description
This tour covers the region of Ancient Cappadocia. Start in Ankara and from there you will visit the ruins of the Bronze Age Hittite Capital of Hatussa, abandoned for millennia. From there, your balloon will float whimsically across the Turkish landscape until reaching modern day Cappadocia, where you will peer at the the underground dwellings and churches of the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Goreme. See all this by hot air balloon, flying hundreds of feet above the ground. See the sunrise as you never have before – an extraordinary way to experience the unique landscape. The Balloon Tour offers a minimum 45-minute flight time in the air. You will be collected from your hotel early in the morning (usually before sunrise), and driven to the take-off site. While you are having a light breakfast and anticipating your exciting journey, you will watch the inflation of the balloon. After the flight lands there is a small celebration with champagne, and you will receive your flight certificate. Please note that the landing site is not the same as the take-off location. You will be driven back to your hotel at around 08:30 am - just in time for breakfast!

The Balloon Over Cappadocia Experience is definitely not to be missed. It is a very relaxed feeling, with a little bit of adrenaline at the beginning, but you love it once you are enjoying these wonderful views, and feeling this fresh air. The tour was very good, perhaps I felt a little frustrated seeing that our balloon rose much later than others, already with the sun peeking out, and the idea was to see the sunrise from above. I don't know what this is about, that some manage to get out before others. In fact we were picked up at 4am. and still had to wait at the site, since the balloon was not ready. We enjoyed it anyway, and the drivers look very experienced. Not even talking about champagne (I don't rate this)
