Floating effortlessly just an arms stretch away from the tops of the fairy-chimneys, fruit trees and then ascending high above the ice cream coloured ravines, this is simply the best way to travel above the valleys of Cappadocia.

Communication with our hotel and via email was timely. We were scheduled again for the next day. Friday's ride was uncertain up to the last minute as the weather was very... More

Great company, we had free breakfast before we went for the drive to the launch area. They were professional and efficient. They help us into the basket and it was a super good experience ride. Pilot made us feel safe and showed us some interesting points to look out for. Really great! Worth every penny..

There are plenty of ways to take a balloon ride in Capadoccia. There are all kinds of operators. Butterfly balloons is a well-run, professional business you can trust for a safe and fun trip. Too bad you have to get up so early and be at the mercy of the weather, but it's well worth the effort.

Breakfast at the company flight centre and away to the take off point. No hanging about and airborne in less than fifteen minutes. Our pilot Halil was a very pleasant young man who... More

We thought nothing could top Pammukale but our experience this morning with Butterfly Balloons was such an incredible experience. From a lovely healthy breakfast, ensuring our safety and experience was of premium quality and an enjoyable time in the basket with our funny and professional pilot Fatih, we had the most incredible time and highly recommend this company.

Pilot Gokhan was really skillful in maneuvering the balloon into the valleys and over the fairy chimneys. In this ride, we get to see the landscape up close and he would skillfully bring the balloon into the sky slowly, it seems like the horizon was emerging before us. A truly awesome experience. The crew were helpful in assisting us to... More
