Full description
Journey out on a small group tour and discover the heart of Cappadocia traveling through the region's fascinating landscapes, valleys, and towns. Meet your English-speaking guide and driver at the lobby of your accommodation in Cappadocia and enjoy a relaxing ride in an air-conditioned private minivan.

The first stop takes you to the Devrent Imagination Valley, an area with different animal-like natural rock formations. Then, continue the tour to Zelve Open Air Museum, one of the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the park. Take a stroll through the valley and admire some examples of Byzantine art before heading to Pasadag Fairy Chimneys, where you'll see mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys with multiple stems and caps.

Before lunch, you'll visit local ceramic workshops in the town of Avanos where the pottery has been an integral part of life for more than 4000 years. Get a glimpse into the world of pottery as it was thousands of years ago.

Following lunch, you'll finish off the day with a visit to the Göreme Open Air Museum, where you will see some well preserved, rock-cut churches with frescoes, wall paintings, and chapels dating from as early as the 10th century. As this Cappadocia tour comes to a close, your driver will make a short photo break at Pigeon Valley on the way back to your hotel.
