Pre-flight information for Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Tour
Pick-up from your hotel
We make your transfer with luxury mini buses from your hotel to our restaurant one hour prior to sunrise. We will inform you the day before about the pick-up time in the morning from your hotel.
Open buffet breakfast
While our pilots are choosing the take-off site, you will have an open buffet – fully catered breakfast in our restaurant. We have a proper indoor place to enjoy early breakfast. Simply, you are free of winds, dust and cold. Cups of coffee or teas will go well with traditional pastry as well as cheese, olives, cake, sausages etc.
Watching the inflation
After the decision of the launch site by our pilots, we transfer the passengers. To offer the best possible flight and the experience, we choose the take-off site for the day’s flight according to the direction and the strength of the wind. One of life’s most fascinating sights is the set-up and inflation of a hot air balloon.
Once the balloon is stabilised, the passengers receive their call and the adventure begins. Before take-off , your pilot will brief you about safety procedures. Please listen carefully and follow all of your pilot’s instructions.
The sensation of ballooning is very gentle and its calming effect seems to put the world below into perspective. Rock formations and world-famous fairy chimneys drift into view, giving you an unmatched feeling of being above it all.
Your pilot can turn the balloon using the rotation vents and provide you with a full panoramic view as you glide through the skies.
After the flight, when your feet find their way back to earth, the crew will meet you, and help you celebrate your voyage with the traditional champagne toast and memories to last a lifetime.
We give you a commemorative flight certificate suitable for framing, and memories to last a lifetime.
Service back to your hotel
We will transfer you back to your hotel in the day of your flight. Also if requested we can take yo to the location you want in Cappadocia.
