Hot Air Balloon Tours in Cappadocia

The Season of Gratitude

Santa Barbara Travel Bureau is grateful for its clients and invites you to celebrate in our beautiful State Street office on December 7th from 5-7 at our Client Appreciation Holiday Party.

Hosted drinks, appetizers and very special door prizes sponsored by KNM Travel: Slovenia & Croatia, Karavan Turkey and Turkish Airlines will be gifted. Spoiler alert: Grand prize is a roundtrip airline ticket to Turkey!  Must be present to win.

RSVP via evite is required: please email if you do not receive our Holiday Party evite by December 1st.

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, turkey becomes the talked about bird.  However, in the travel world we think of the beautiful country of Turkey- where it’s balloons, not birds that take to the sky.

Celebrate the festive season in Cappadocia, Turkey with customized tours that take your breath away.  Enjoy spectacular landscapes sculpted by erosion over thousands of years, perfect for a hot air balloon tour.

Explore cave like dwellings and rock-hewn sanctuaries dating back to the Byzantine post-Iconoclastic period, as far back as the 4th Century. Today what is left are amazing troglodyte villages (underground cities that once contained human habitat) and beautiful valleys that go as far as the eye can see.

Contact Santa Barbara Travel to carefully arrange your dream trip, with hot air balloon package tours from Istanbul to Cappadocia. Let the experts book your airline tickets, accommodations and daily sightseeing adventures, so that all you have to do is relax and enjoy your vacation.
