Cappadocia is the point of the Silk Road used for thousands of years joining the east and the west. Caravanserais located in all parts of Cappadocia are historical structures that tell about the intensity of trade. The most popular helpers of caravans are camels. The camel is calm animal resistant to hot and cold weather and suitable for carrying heavy loads. These animals, which once served cultures and civilizations, now serve for tourism. We offer our guests a safe and authentic travel in a unique view of Cappadocia.

I have never ridden a camel. Can I still participate?
Of course! Our well-trained staff will teach you how to get on and off and how to best communicate with your camel. We won't leave until all participants feel comfortable and confident to ride. And if any problems arise during the ride? We will be there ready to help!
Is it comfortable?
Quite frankly, no. But it is an amazing experience. Camels are very smart and affectionate animals although they can be pretty stubborn at times! And so despite the bumps (both on the road and on the camel), you will love the ride!
Is camel riding difficult?
Guests have said riding is like being on a comfortable moving armchair. The rhythm is gentle and we have had mature aged guests riding with hip and knee replacements as well as youngsters seated in front of their parents on family themed camel treks. If you can sit to watch the T.V, you can most likely Camel ride.
What weight camels carry?
Humans have used camels as a means of transport for thousands of years. They can carry about 170 to 270 kilograms on their backs.
Are camels faster than horses?
Camels are slightly slower than horses because they can only reach speeds of around 20 to 25 miles per hour while horses have an average gallop speed around 25 to 30 miles per hour. Racehorses are usually a bit faster than regular camels, but camels that are trained to race can be just as fast.
Are camels friendly to humans?
Camels are gentle and friendly creatures. Most people don't get much of a chance to interact with them, so they might have many questions about this interesting creature, including what types of camels there are and what do camels eat.
Truly wonderful experience. Our agent Ashley was very responsive throughout. The whole balloon crew were so professional and fun. Definitely the highlight of our Turkey trip.
Es el sitio que más barato vimos, volamos por 160€ por persona. Hacen lo mismo que todos, te recogen en el hotel, te dan el desayuno viendo montar los globos, vuelo de 60 minutos y luego te dan champán y un diploma.
Una experiencia inolvidable.
I booked an ATV tour online for 2 adults and assumed this meant we'd have 2 ATVS, which was not the case, we only had 1 reserved. Fortunately we were able to arrange a second ATV onsite.
The tour lasted 2 hours and we went through some fields, up to the rim of Love Valley and ended in a nice spot to catch the sunset. My partner put it succinctly when he said "ATVs are a cancer to this place" which is absolutely true. Cappadocia is completely overrun by tourists on ATVs (had I known this before, I would not have booked the tour) which is really unfortunate. The sunset spot was overcrowded with vendors and tourists taking selfies, all while inhaling the fumes of burning plastic and exhaust. The guys leading our tour were not friendly nor did they share any information about the region or areas we traveled through. They did however seem to enjoy showing off their ATV handling skills by riding around the rock formations at full blast, sometimes carrying young women along for a 'wild ride'. When we weren't trying to avoid serious injury by getting hit by an ATV guide, we were watching out for the jeep tours plowing full speed across the rock formations.
I'm sure many people enjoy these tours, but I wouldn't recommend them if you're interested in learning about the region and you care about how your tourism is impacting the places you visit.
Hayatınızda birkez bile olsa deneyimlemeniz gerekli.
Good honest people, gave a great hot air balloon tour. I enjoyed very much. I booked one day before my ride and they were quick to contact me and provide all information.
Oktay helped arrange all hot air balloon ride, daily tours and transfers for me. He is really good and gives you a fair price. Would totally recommend him. You can trust him to plan everything and be relaxed that it will ne taken care of.
