Lying in south central Turkey, the moonscaped region of Cappadocia, southeast of Ankara, is most famous for unique geological features called fairy chimneys. The large, cone-like formations were created over time by erosion of the relatively soft volcanic ash around them. Past cultures have dug into them to create dwellings, castles (like Uchisar) and even entire underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, used as hiding places by early Christians. Nearby Kayseri is the gateway to the area.

The balloon ride was very exciting and the views were fantastic. We were looked after well. Landed very smoothly and had a chance to buy a professional photograph of me and my wife in the basket before take off, for 80 lira. Was picked up from hotel and dropped back off so all of the logistics were fully taken care of by the organisers. Would recommend, just bear in mind it may be cancelled if the wind is strong. We had to reschedule as the first time was cancelled due to wind. Worth keeping in mind if you are only staying for a few days as you may need leeway for this.

I don't recommend this Tour. It was Deklarated that we will see 5 sightseeing points - we saw only 2. Then it was said from the Tour Organisation Company that it will be Maximum 18 person in a Basket - we were 28 people what is a lot. We Could not Move.... (the operating company is allowed to change the amount of people due to weather conditions what is lie- we had a perfect weather) after that it was written that we will have champagne after the Tour- no champagne, just grape Juice!!! Dont Pay too much for this fake "better Service and comfort" unless you book a Private Basket it is not Worth it. If we had known how it would go in real we would buy a normal cheap Tour. No refund was possible although La Vacanza Travel offered a discount for a next trip - for us it will no more trips !!

We were taken middle of nowhere, far away from Goreme, waited locked in the van for hour and a half with no communication from the organiser/driver, while seeing so many balloons in the air near Goreme. Eventually we flew, but never over fairy chiminies or similar landscape, with only 2/3 balloons of the same company around us. No other balloons nearby. If you don’t mind being middle of nowhere and flying over some random fields with no other balloons nearby then it’s for you.
