Thanks for such a special day and ever lasting memory


    Great operation from Mares Travel. Good, friendly staff and another well organised tour. First time we have done ballooning and is remarkably smooth (not sure we knew what to expect). A very good and comfortable minibus. Top sightseeing and wonderful experience.


    Thanks for the experience of a lifetime. A very early start from Marmaris but it was well worth it. We will never forget this special day. Its something weve wanted to do for years but the weather was always against us.


    A stunning and beautiful experience with Mares Travel. Im not good at all with heights, but found the whole flight thoroughly enjoyable day. After the balloon flight we spent some time in Pamukkale and swimming in the hot thermal pools was amazing. Special thankıs to our driver Yusuf, he was very friendly and helpful.
