General Description: Air adventure in Cappadocia - Turkey, man originally conquered the skies with the hot-air balloon and the principle of lighter-than-air-travel. This sensation in one of the most spectacular and beautiful area in the world comes as one life's unforgettable experiences.
Departure: Sunrise every day wake you up in your hotel room around 05:00am if weather permitting. Previous years have shown a 95% flyability record.
Pick - up and return to Hotels in the area will be arranged for no extra charge. Programme: We collect the passengers at the hotel and arrange them in the ground-support vehicles for transfer to the take-of site (which depends on the wind direction on that day) We have over 30 take - off sites in the area in order to fly over the most interesting landscape. Once airborne the balloon will travel free with the wind. We prepare the balloon for flight which takes about 20 minutes. During which time the passengers are welcome to help or to take photos and we explain some technical information and safety instructions for the flight. The flight lasts from between 1 to 1* hours and includes both low contour flying and also going high enough to view the whole lanscape from above. The pilot has very accurate control of the height and it is often possible to pick the leaves from the trees passing under the basket. Because the balloon is separated from the ground, no sensation of fear or vertigo is experienced by the passengers. And the general impressions are soft and gentle. It is not colder 'up there' than it is on the ground. And it is sometimes warmer as there is no sensation of wind as the balloon is moving with the air during flight. We transfer back to you around 08:00 - 08:30am. to your hotel door.

In the event of the pilots decision to cancel the flight reasons of security in bad weather, all monies will be reimbursed.

Hi Toroshan, Our last trip to Turkey was wonderful. Thanks for all your arrangements. Everyone was happy. We actually
enjoyed the snow. I thought I'd deleted
all my photos but I recovered them. Tim was a good guide. We hope
to use you and Tim both again in the future. I am already looking at dates for another trip. I will be in
communication with you. Blessings
