    I felt like I was dreaming! I’ve always wanted to experience this flight so when I found out that I could do it Pamukkale I booked immediately! Cool people, the company was great. The flight goes really smooth, no inconvenience at all. The basket was large, there were other people inside but we were all comfortable. The wow factor for me was the sunrise. All these worm colours, the sunlight reflections, and everything! I think it was a lifetime experience for me. An excellent day to start my day, I was full of energy after that. Try it!


    Early wake up call, but definitely worthy! The balloon flight was a dream that came true. We were in Pamukkale last month with my husband and did the flight on our last day. Superb way to end our vacations. It was a bit chill during the morning so make sure that you are having a jacket. Watching Pamukkale from above and all these colourful balloons around us was just incredible. I took many pictures of the sites and of the sunrise. No words can actually describe what I felt. I recommend the hot air balloon flight and the tour operator. Everything was perfect.


    Group of friends and family. Booked this in advance and I have to say that it was a very simple process. Exchanges few massages and that’s it! Excellent customer service. They offered us transfers, which was really good since we were a kind of big group. Pilot was super cool. I watched him preparing the balloon and he answered some questions that I had. Flight and landing were smooth and felt completely safe. I wasn’t expecting this, but we all had a great time. At the end we had a sort of small party and it was great. Thank you for everything!


    Just came back at the hotel. We are on a girls’ trip and we all wanted to experience the balloon flight. I think it was the most picture-perfect thing we’ve done so far here. My friends and I were stunned by the whole flight. The cotton castle was dreamy and when the sun started rising, oh wow! All these warm colours were just b beautiful. Great views, exceptional landscapes, an awesome pilot. We also had fun at the after party. They even gave us some certificates for our participation. I just want to do it again! One day I’ll be back for sure.


    Delightful and great for kids. We joined the flight with our 3 kids and I think they will remember this for a long time. When we started taking-off we were full of excitement – not many people in the basket, so better for us! The pilot was very caring, he explained to the kids many things and so we were a bit relaxed knowing that the guy is experienced. When we reached the highest point, it was pure magic. The sunrise in front of us got us speechless, the kids loved every minute of the flight! Excellent activity for families. Great memories and nice people. Recommended.


    That was an absolute perfection! I mean, wow! I’ve done the hot air balloon flight in other locations in turkey, but Pamukkale was just perfect. I could spot so many sites from up there. The ancient city and the travertines were stunning. Super alternative way to take pictures of the area. The team did every great, I’m super happy with the service and the flight experience. If you are there try it!! At the end we were given a glass of champagne, it’s a kind of tradition they say. Just perfect, absolutely recommended.


    I surprised my girlfriend last week with a balloon flight. She was super happy when she found out about it. I want to say thank you for the excellent organisation, everything was on time. We really enjoyed it. When we were in the basket it was amazing, lot of emotions, lots of colours, images, and of course the views. Ouf! I couldn’t stop taking pictures, and I was really pleased to see my girl smiling all the time. At the end there was a celebration for us. We did a champagne toast and had some fun with the pilots. Amazing!


    All I have to say is OMG! What an incredible thing to do. Dreamy landscapes, outstanding views, wow sunrise, and lots of emotions. Yeah, that’s what we got from our flight!! My friends and I had a blast. We saw many pictures and reviews, but honestly nothing can actually describe what we felt and what we experienced. The travertines looked out of this world, Hierapolis also. There were many balloons up there and the whole atmosphere was soooo nice! I was so emotional when I went back to the hotel. Such a great experience. Just try it!


    Booked many tours with this company and they are trustworthy. The hot air balloon was the first thing I did when I arrived to Pamukkale. I was on a solo trip, but there were other people in the group so we got friendly. The pilots were experienced, I felt relaxed knowing that they know what they are doing. It was like we were flying, smooth, easy, no problems at all. The sunrise is a true feast for the eyes! The colour palette was so warm and everything looked prettier with the sunlight. I will never forget the balloon experience. A great recommendation to all.


    I was in Pamukkale a couple of weeks ago and convinced my parents to join me in this incredible flight. The three of us had an exceptional experience. They were stressed during take-off, but then they really enjoyed it. The flight is amazing!!! Being up there watching Pamukkale and the sun rising in front of us was something extremely special. I’m glad we shared this experience as a family! When we landed we got flight certificates and I think it was awesome!! What a day that was! Incredible! The organisers were also super, 5 star service and super professionals. Well done guys, you did an amazing job!
