Return from Cappadocia not included. Make sure you understand this before booking. Also had to pay for shuttle from hotel to Cappadocia Airport on the second day, was told it was included. Otherwise balloon ride was a blast.

Fantastic tour guide. He was interesting and congenial. The balloon ride was a unique experience. The tour selections were a combination that took us to the best spots. Most of the transfers were spot on the times given. The only reason I give four stars, is that the return pickup was fumbled. We were at the assigned rendezvous spot for 20 minutes before we connected to an agent of the car company and another 40 minutes, before we actually got in the van. It was late and we were feeling a little grumpy.

First off all I would like to thank everyone that has been involved in arranging this dream trip, I decided last minute and I mean last minute to take this tour, I book this tour at 12 pm the day before I decided to travel, at 7pm I got my confirmation email with flights and hotel booked. There normal hotel was full due to busy season but they found an amazing hotel for me at old vintage house, the tour operating company was absolutely amazing. The hot air baloon ride was the highlight of the trip. I would highly recommend booking this tour if you want to experience all Cappadocia has to offer. It's worth every penny. Once again thank you very much.

All I can say is wow! Well I can actually say more lol. This entire experience was truly amazing. I can't believe how I lucked up on this awesome experience. Everything ran smoothly. Like no issues-well except for the one time the driver dropped me off at the wrong hotel after the balloon ride. I told him it didn't look like my hotel but he insisted. But besides from that everything was perfect. I was picked up from my hotel in Istanbul and dropped off at the airport. I was picked up once I landed. Took an hour drive directly to start the red tour. I had a great tour guide name Torgor(?) I just remember him saying his name sounds like tour guide lol. His energy was amazing and he was just filled with so much historical information. We visited Pigeon Valley, Goreme Open Air Museum, Cavusin, Devrent Valley. We saw Pasabag, Fairy Chimneys and Love Valley. We had an air conditioner van to take us from place to place. We visited Avanos to a Ceramic Pottery shop. It was cool I was able to get hands on and make pottery out of red clay. We stopped by a nearby restaurant to have lunch which was included. We were done with the tour by 4pm. I stayed in Cappadocia View Hotel. It was ok and basic. The roof top has very beautiful views of everything. With free time I booked a Turkish dinner dance performance in a cave which I highly suggest. The next morning by 430am was picked up for the air balloon tour. This experience was completely amazing. After getting dropped off at the wrong hotel, I found my way back and was able to catch a traditional turkish breakfast at the hotel which is included. We had another awesome guide name Bidom(?) as our guide for the Green tour. We also visited Pigeon Valley again which was cool because I spent time in a different area and Goreme Panorama. We also visited Derinkuyu Underground City which was so cool and amazing. We visited Selime Monastery which was a very steep hike but beautiful especially the views; and Ihlara Valley in which we had lunch at a restaurant right off the river which was included. The food was delicious. Our guide was awesome and was very informative at every place we visited. Once the tour was over I was dropped off back at my hotel to wait for pick up to take me to the airport. Once I landed in Istanbul I had another transportation back to my hotel. Absolutely amazing experience. I wish it was an extra day added for a morning to watch the balloons from the ground up and to also ride the ATV'S or camels or horses and visit winery's and shops that sells rugs haha. But I loved it and I highly recommend this package
