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.

Absolutely horrible business. They cancelled our booking the evening before. I received an email at 4:23pm, Oct 11, 2022, the day before through TripAdvisor. When I called +905422831327 for a reason, they stated that the balloon was damaged and 20+ people had their reservation cancelled. Their reason could NOT BE VERIFIED. And when I reached out to other companies in Goreme, they said chances are the company was lying, that Unique Ephesus Tours is based out of Ephesus, and do not have a good business relationship with the balloon companies in Goreme, where the balloons lift off. They possibly did not have a booking for me in the first place when I booked on October 5th through TripAdvisor. I had to use the rest of the evening calling other companies and walking into Goreme to find one with availability. I suggest people call the balloon companies situated in Goreme directly to book their balloon ride. It is best to book a couple of months in advance as it is a very popular activity.

I've had a disappointing experience, as I had not been informed that the tour would take off from the Çat valley, very far from the centre of Göreme, from other ballons and from the beautiful landscape we are used to see on the Internet. I also had to insist to get a refund. So my advise is to make sure that the tour is in the main valleys.

This balloon ride is not right course. We couldn’t go inside village like other over 800 balloon route. Pilot said his balloon not allow with other balloon together. We’re out of route only three balloons different place and just watching other group of balloon inside village. So weird with that much money. This is not worthy at all. So disappointed.

Do NOT book this tour, this is NOT the “Cappadocia Balloon Experience” that everyone is looking for and we feel deceived. This tour is a balloon ride in an empty valley with nothing to see or experience while you can see the other 100+ balloons miles away flying over Goreme. We were taken to a random open field miles away from the other balloons with only 6 other balloons. The entire experience was a disappointment and it seemed like everyone involved, from the driver who picked us up to the balloon pilot was disinterested in providing anything to customers and knew they this is not the experience participants thought they were paying for.
