Apart from Skydiving, this would be another activity that I would not regret doing again and again. Amazing part of this activity is the sight of many other hotair balloons raising at the same time, with all difference designs. It becomes something you can never capture in repeated moments. Done in the early morning to capture sunrise as well, the... More

We booked through our Campsite and got a very good price due to the lack of tourists. Unfortunately Goreme is not receiving as many visitors due to people being nervous about Turkey and neighboring Syria. I would urge people to visit as the place is beautiful and everyone is very friendly. We were picked up from our campsite at 4am... More

No words can describe the beauty of this experience. Hot Air Balloon Tour with Istanbul Balloons was unique and memorable adventure! Flight, as well as pilot were amazing! Pilot took us into the valley for some close up shots then up into the air for an extraordinary view of the region. The landing was smooth and we celebrated with champagne... More

Early start but worth it. 530am pickup from hotel to the Istanbul Balloons headquarters. Here we had breakfast then loaded up to head off to the balloons. Just over one hour air time and the view was absolutely stunning. One of the best things we have done on our travels and worth every penny! Highly recommended!

Everything was excellent. All of the crew are very professional, our pilot Ali was very kind and very professional. Don't think so much, must visit Istanbul Balloons before your flight. We experienced a very smooth flight. Strongly recommended...

This Balloon company was recommended by our hotel owner. They seemed to be well organized and very timely. We had a 16 person Balloon vs. on with 35 people. It makes a difference to go with the smaller basket. We had a pilot that spent a lot of time going deep into the crevasses and gave us a spectacular 89... More
