Full description
Fly over the Cappadocia landscape early in the morning in a hot air balloon, a truly surreal experience you'll never forget. Follow this up with a 6.5-hour tour full of incredible natural formations, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and many different types of ancient art. Your day begins with this 1-hour hot air balloon flight over Cappadocia, perfect for taking pictures of the Fairy Chimneys from above. These rock formations formed 30 million years ago and are unique on this planet. Then, explore Devrent Valley for a more up-close sight of the Fairy Chimneys. Visit Zelve Open Air Museum, an amazing cave town with dwellings built into the sides of rock formations. Next, visit Pasabag, where you’ll see some more Fairy Chimneys. Close by, visit a local village’s pottery shop and see how people survived and created beautiful art in this region dating back to the Hittite period. Sit down for lunch in a local restaurant and rest up for the second half of the tour.   After lunch, visit the Goreme Open Air Museum, which contains some of the best cave churches in Cappadocia. Admire the frescoes adorning this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, head to Uçhisar Castle and Pigeon Valley, two of the best spots for photography in the whole world.  Hit the road again to return to your hotel—but before you get home, you’ll stop at Goreme Panorama Point to see the beauty of Cappadocia from a different angle.

Excellent experience. The hot air balloon ride was the highlight of the tour. The pilot was funny and a good tour guide and expertly handled the ride. The red tour is a standard experience with less walking across Cappadocia's sights and the Air museum is a must see!
