Hot Air Ballooning Over Cappadocia

A trip to Turkey isn’t complete without a stop in Cappadocia. The most famous attraction of the region is the hot air balloon tour, which is constantly ranked in the top 3 hot air balloon rides in the world. This trip like most other hot air balloon rides starts in the wee hours with a hotel pick up early in the morning with the tour continuing into late morning. The typical price for such a tour is $212 for the standard and $305 for the deluxe (which includes premium spirits and wines plus a deluxe brunch). Based on the weather conditions, you will have a chance to fly between and up close to fairy chimneys, pigeon houses carved from rock formations, orchards and vineyards. The balloon will also achieve height to allow views of the various rock formations, their colors, ripped ravines and the sheer magnitude of these oddly shaped rocks. A simply Google search on Cappadocia will provide some breathtaking pictures of views you can almost be guaranteed to have during this ride. Companies I recommend include:
