Daily Cappadocia Tours
We offer three different daily tours at the Kelebek Special Cave. The number of people on these tours is limited to 15. We don't spend time on obligatory shopping stops. Tours start between 09:30 and 10:00 depending on your tour choice from the Kelebek Special Cave. Tours finish around 16:00 - 17:00 at the Kelebek Special Cave. The rate is 55 Euros per person (10 Euros discount with cash payment) including a licensed English speaking guide, entrance fees, lunch and transportation.

STANDARD BALLOON TOURS (≈1 HOUR)
The Standard Balloon Tour offers a 45 minute to one-hour flight in the air. You will be collected from the hotel early in the morning, usually before sunrise, and driven to the take-off site. After a light breakfast, you will watch the inflation of the balloons, then it’s time to climb into the basket and the highlight of your Turkey trip begins! After the flight lands, there is a small celebration with champagne and you will receive your flight certificate. You will be driven back to your hotel around 08:30 am, just in time for breakfast. Then you can choose to join a daily tour or take a nap. There will be a maximum of 20 people in the baskets. Please contact us for prices of Standard Balloon flights from various companies.
DELUXE BALLOON TOURS (1,5 HOURS)
By joining a Deluxe Balloon Tour you will have a minimum 1.5 hour flight. For people who are interested in photography and aviation, the deluxe tour is the perfect choice. The main difference in the deluxe flightis the longer flight time but you will also fly in smaller baskets, usually between 6 and 12 people. The Deluxe balloon flight costs 215 Euro per person including transfers from/to the hotel, a light breakfast, a champagne celebration and flight certificates. We offer a 15 Euro discount with cash payment so the rate becomes 200 Euro per person.
THE BUTTERFLY FLIGHT (1 HOUR - 1 HR 15 MINS)
Butterfly Balloons is different from all the other companies offering what is called the “Butterfly Flight.” You get a minimum of 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes flight time, which is between the standard and deluxe flights described above. Basket sizes are also to your advantage between 12 to 16 people per basket. Butterfly Balloons is the most popular balloon company in Cappadocia, and its operation is more boutique style with fewer balloons flying daily compared to most companies. Since it offers fewer balloons and is the most popular balloon company, we recommend early booking for Butterfly Balloons as they usually get booked up weeks ahead during the high season (May-October). The cost of the Butterfly Flight is 140 Euros per person (130 Euros when paid in cash).
