There were tonnes of companies to choose from but we chose Royal Balloons for their reputation and safety record. We were not disappointed. We felt safe from the time we were picked up till the end of the tour.

Tolga Eke was our pilot and he was top class! He hugged the terrain (when appropriate) and did his best to ensure that we had good views of all Cappadocia had to offer. He was also humorous throughout the flight. We had such a great experience and would surely recommend Royal Balloons!

Tolga is no doubt the best pilot in Cappadocia! :p

There are many company run balloons in Cappadocia. I choose royal balloon because of reputation in tripadvisor.

Murat is our pilot and he done his work really great. Go up and down or move balloon professionally. So lucky that he drive balloon for us.

I can confirm that this maybe No.1 in Cappadocia

I planned the hot air balloon on my wife birthday while we visiting Turkey! I prayed very hard it will not rain at the night before and it wasn't. BUT, the flight was still been cancelled due to its too windy in the sky. Nothing we can do about it as it for safety reason.

The royal balloon company kindly offered us to do it again on the next day which we accepted.

The next day we wake up at 4am and pick up by the van at 430am. We had compllimentry breakfast again and at round 630am, someone is shouting " let's go fly !"

It was truly amazing when you see more than 100 of hot air balloon in the sky and the sun is raising slowly in front of you. Our pilot Tugrul is so wonderful, he made this journey are so enjoyable and unique!

The company even arranged a nice cake for my wife as a big surprise while we drinking champagne for the successful fly as we suppose fly the day before on her birthday ! Really touched and all the dispointment from yesterday was gone and we even feel lucky as there were so many balloons in the sky today and the sun rise are so spectacular!

Thank you Royal , and thank you Tugrul for such a wonderful experience which we will for sure remember forever!

We had our balloon ride today and it was amazinggg!! It's the highlight of our cappadocia trip and we recommend anyone who comes here to do it.

The experience was made better with our pilot Tugrul who is professional, funny and friendly. He took us high up n low n near to the apple tree and 'iceberg'. Everyone in the basket felt comfortable and safe in his flight and our landing was a perfect one. We didn't even need to be in a landing position and could continue enjoy the mesmerising view and take pictures.

Kudos to our fantastic pilot !

We went to Turkey to celebrate the 82nd birthday of our mother, Lina. There were 8 of us in our group and we took an early morning hot air balloon ride with Royal and our pilot was Tugrul Guclu. The morning started with an on-time pick up at our hotel, breakfast and a ride to the launch site. We took an hour ride across the landscape of Fairy Chimneys, caves, and landscape which was other worldly. The pilot was very experienced, had a sense of humor and navigator the course swiftly and safely and efficiently. He pointed out nature, areas of interest and even animals, spotting a fox in landscape. The sunrise was magnificent and some of the most beautiful sites I have ever seen. Landing was gently. After the ride we had a celebration of Turkish sparkling wine, chocolate covered strawberries and sweets. It is a experience I will never forget and one I'd like t repeat again in my lifetime. On my bucket list to bring my daughters to Turkey.
