Inesquecível
Contratamos a discovery ballons depois que nosso voo que compramos antecipado pelo Booking foi cancelado, e já estavamos na capadócia, encontramos essa empresa pela internet, ficamos receosos pois eles estavam cobrando valor bem a baixo das outras empresas, mas decidimos arriscar pois não queríamos ir embora sem voar de balão, eles cumpriram todo o combinado, foi muito tranquilo e seguro, podem confiar! Nota 10!!

Great Company!
Experts in their profession! Everything was amazing from pick-up to the flight and post flight celebration. The staff, pilot and ground crew were nice and very accommodating at all times. The only aspect that made the trip less desirable is the other passengers that lack self awareness of how much space they are taking up in the basket especially when they shove you into the corner so that you don't even have the ability to turn around. Still overall it was a great experience from every aspect within the control of Discovery Balloons!

Unforgettable experience.
We had a truly unforgettable and amazing experience with Discovery Balloons. They were very responsive by text, easily picked us up and dropped us off from the hotel. We went on the hot air balloon flight with Basak, who was truly an expert navigator. At the end, the champagne and mock tails were a lovely touch. Discovery Balloons provided exceptional service and I highly recommend this his activity with them.

Bucket list experience!
One of the best experience of my life! I'm so glad we went through this company. They were amazing from start to finish. They communicated very easily and were very responsive. They were right on time with everything and their staff were incredible. They were very organized, friendly and accommodating. The pilot was so experienced and everyone on their team was very knowledgeable. They seemed far superior to some of the other companies in price, value, ease, and providing the best experience possible. 10/10!

Do not miss.
It is so serene to be floating that high and taking in the beauty of cappadocia. Everything was taken care of by this team and our pilot was amazing. Recommend doing it on your first day in Cappadocia just in case balloons are not flying and you have to reschedule for next day. This way you will not miss this experience. We were picked up by the team, had a nag of snacks ready for us as well. After the flight you can have champagne and some snacks as well. Then they drop you back to the hotel.

Magical ride. Very professional team
Amazing a experience. Absolutely not to be missed. Team was professional and knowledgeable. I read that the landing might be a little rough, but it was as smooth as can be. Definitely choose the option with the least number of people in the basket, if possible. The less crowded the better.
