Cappaddocia tour companies and Hotels

Jump to last reply

Has anyone used either Turkey Travel Bazaar Tours or Turkey Golden Tours for Cappadocia 2 day/1night tours? Anyone stayed at Hotel Nostalji? Any comments or recommendations will be appreciated. Also, need info. on Balloon companies and costs.

    From my recent trip report:

    For my balloon ride, I chose a deluxe tour with Kapadokya Balloons and it not only met, but exceeded, my expections!

    I based my selection on 3 considerations. If what I learned in advance is correct, then:
    (1) Kapadokya is the best-established hot air balloon company in the area and the one with the best safety record.
    (2) Kapadokya has more take-off/landing sites than any company with the possible exception of its “daughter” company; more take-off and landing sites mean that the company has a better chance of being able to respond to unusual weather, so it is more likely to be able to take off and to take off on time and more likely to be able to stay aloft for a long time.
    (3) A hot air balloon ride of any length and with any company was a splurge by my standards, and as a splurge, I decided that I would rather pay the extra for the longer ride in a smaller basket – I didn’t want to land after spending a lot of money, only to wonder whether the extra cost would be worth it.

    I was VERY, VERY pleased with my choice. The time seemed to fly by! (No pun intended.) I couldn’t believe that it had been nearly 2 hours when we landed, and it seems I would have missed so much if the ride had been only 1 hour long.

    For prices, you can check the company's web site.
