Balloon flight in Cappadocia

In Cappadocia we took a flight with Sultan Balloons. I think that every experience is different so this is how mine was.

Also I found out that there are over 30 companies that can offer you a balloon flight in Cappadocia! More, the investment for such a business is huge!

What do you have to know about Sultan Balloons?  First they are recommended by Lonely Planet – wow! Rock on! 

Price information – you can find this info on their website, you can send them an email and YES, you can negotiate! The full price is around 160 euro but you can receive discounts.

Everything starts at 4 in the morning when a driver picks you up from the hotel and you are transported to the take off site.

The transport from the hotel to the take off site is included in price. Do not worry about it!

Fun fact: the take off place is almost never established long before. All is settled in the evening for the next day, depending on the weather. Every detail is very important: how the wind blows, if there are clouds, etc.

Now. After we got up into the balloon we received some informations about special situations and landings. Calos, our pilot was very cute and cheerd us up with some jokes!

We took off from the grownd. I could have missed that moment – that slow and gentle all was :). And then, a magnificent sunrise came! A lot of pictures, a lot of emotions, a wonderful feeling of serenity! I just flew and it was like never before!

Also, a really nice thing for me was the fact that at the take off place there was coffee and tea and some cookies. I do not really care about the cookies and the tea but for sure I NEED my coffee in the morning!
