We were flying over the rippled valleys of Cappadocia which we planned to visit later on the same day. We saw Rose valley, Pigeon valley, Open Air Goreme Museum, etc.; all from a bird’s eye view. A pilot can only guide the balloon vertically, as the horizontal path is clearly directed by the wind around. Dennis was professional and fluent in English and was properly describing about the sights we were flying over. He had years of experience in flying the balloon and we felt absolutely safe while flying with him.

It’s also just a few hours away from Pammukale (the cotton castle with the hot springs and travertine) and few minutes away from Kusadasi which is one of the biggest ports in Turkey where most of the cruise ships halt.
