Full description

Enjoy a full-day tour of Cappadocia via a compact itinerary with lunch included. Visit Goreme Open Air Museum, Devrent Valley, and Pasabag. Walk around the fairy chimneys, see the first cave houses of early Christians, and visit local pottery experts.

According to your tour pickup time, you’ll meet with your guide, then start your tour by exploring Goreme Museum. The museum consists of many rock-cut churches from the second half of the 9th century with colorful frescoes decorating the walls.

Next, visit Devrent Valley, famous for its quirky animal-shaped rocks. It looks like a sculpture zoo made by nature. There is even a rock pillar that looks like the Virgin Mary, holding Jesus Christ. Take in the unique lunar landscape of the valley and feel like you're in another World.

Continue to Pasabagi, which means the pacha's (general’s) vineyard. This site is also called Monks Valley. The hermitage of Simeon monks was here. A chapel dedicated to St. Simeon (Simon) and a hermit's shelter is built into one of the fairy chimneys with three heads.

Pasabag Valley contains some of the most striking fairy chimneys in Cappadocia with twin and even triple rock caps. This style of fairy chimneys is named mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys, unique even for Cappadocia.

Visit Avanos next, where you will enjoy a typical Turkish lunch and experience local pottery experts in action. With your stomach full, continue to Goreme Panorama, featuring one of the best panoramic views of the fairy chimneys.

Round off your trip at Uchisar. See the famous Uchisar Castle made up of rocks that provides a clear panorama of the surrounding area. At the end of the tour, get transferred back to your hotel for drop-off.

Simply brutal. It just so happened that our tour was just two people. Me and my husband. We had the guide (Onurcan Koçakoglu) to ourselves. In Spanish as we requested. Super hard, attentive, explained everything and more. All attention was focused on us. It was a wonderful experience. Perfect! We love it.
