Over the years I have accumulated thousands of stories, met thousands of people and walked and driven all over Western, Eastern, Central and Black Sea regions of Turkey.
Cappadocia Voyager Balloons
"A once in a lifetime flying adventure"
It is hard to have a complete experience of Cappadocia without trying out the hot-air ballooning.
Fly like a bird :)
Few things in life can compare to the thrill and exhilaration of a ride in a hot air balloon. Whether you're 9 years old, or 90 years old, the sensation of being airborne in a beautifully colored hot air balloon cannot be equaled. The feeling of floating in an open balloon gondola, suspended by a magical bulbous sphere will allow you to experience a new found freedom totally unlike any other aerial adventure. And what can make the experience even more magical than ballooning in the world's best and most beautiful destinations?
You're a VIP don't you know! We think all of our customers are great, so everyone receives the same First Class Voyager service and an equally exciting experience, whenever and wherever they fly with us.
With my 28 guests from California
Cappadocia is famous for its magnificent natural beauty and outdoor attractions. Visiting Cappadocia, the land of a thousand caves, churches and underground cities, is an opportunity to step back in time and experience the Asia Minor of old.
The museum where you can see the best preserved churches of Cappadocia. Totally 8 churches. Goreme is one of the oldest towns in Central Anatolia. Primarily an agricultural town, it later became an important center for the early Christians. The valley houses numerous rock hewn churches with frescos. The churches enclosed by the open air museum contain some very well preserved frescos. The Aristocratic churches are covered with impressive Byzantine art. Refectories, kitchens, storage rooms etc. Can also be visited in the museum.
Pasabag or Monks Valley is located 5 minutes drive from Goreme and has mushroom shaped fairy-chimneys and St. Simon Church.
Cappadocia is one of the most perfect places on earth, not only for growing wine grapes or its beautiful landscape, but also for soaring peacefully in hot air balloons. The sensation of ballooning is very gentle and it's calming effect seems to put the world below into perspective. Rock formations and world-famous fairychimneys drift into view, giving you the unmatched feeling of being above it all.

The Rose Valley is one of the most spectacular valleys of Cappadocia with its different kind of rock formations in variety colors.
The surrealistic geological formation of Cappadocia is one of the wonders of the world. It is the result of two opposing forces in nature-volcanic activity in the constructive stage and erosion in the destructive stage..
The oldest churches which can be seen today in Cappadocia were probably built during the 6th century. Several churches were built during the iconoclastic period. The most intense period of church building took place during the 9th to 12th centuries. Construction of rock churches continued under Selcuk rule, which started at the end of the 11th century.
One of the most imposing landmarks of this region is the hiltop fortress at Uchisar. Out of this natural rock formation a wide variety of rooms and dwellings were carved. Communities lived in this fortress in order to protect themselves from the enemy attack. Nearby Pigeon's valley contains numerous pigeon houses. In this valley pigeons were traines to deliver messages to towns throughout Central Cappadocia and were essential aid to communication. Also people used the droppings of the pigeons as a guano.
