We had wonderful experience with this trip . All seems in order from the hotel pick up to the drop off to our hotel after the trip. The place we visited are amazing the guides are knowledgeable and friendly , The food were excellent. The weather was superb. Most of all the balloon ride was unforgettable and the pilot ( sorry I forgot the name) is great and very expert, landing smoothly, One flaw to mention : The ride time is too short. ha ha. we enjoyed it very much.

Wow! What an excellent trip!
Drivers are very punctual. Day one pickup is at 4 am (I screwed up and did not set my alarm correctly and the driver waited) (Thank you!). Turkish Airlines is excellent -- better than any carrier in the States hands down.
Day 1: I did the Red Tour which was a day long tour around the area with site seeing stops and history per stop..
The hotel was perfect and staff was friendly and helpful.. "The Vintage House" (I believe was the name).
Day 2: I did the Balloon and Green Tour. The balloon ride is beyond measure--a must!!!. So perfect.
The Green tour was great. I did run long and they arranged to pull me off the tour to meet the airport transport van. Made it to the airport with 10 mins to spare before boarding.
This company knows what they are doing. Highly recommend. Very happy I chose this tour.
