Full description
Explore the lesser-known locations in Cappadocia on this day-long guided tour. Start your excursion with pickup from your hotel before heading to Soganli Village. After a 1-hour drive, you’ll arrive at this abandoned village full of ancient cave churches—you’ll be captivated by the surreal landscapes of this off-the-beaten-path destination. Then, drive to the Sobesos Excavation Site, where a Roman city is currently being uncovered. Admire its one-of-a-kind floral mosaics that have only recently been discovered.

Next, you’ll go to Keslik Monastery, a cave church that dates from approximately the 7th to 13th century. See where hermits and monks lived and practiced their religion and let the calming atmosphere of the cave relax you.  

Your driver will then take you to Sinassos, where you’ll see an old Greek village that was abandoned and re-inhabited after 1927. Sit down to lunch at a local restaurant before your driver takes you to the Red Valley for a 2-hour hike. Explore in depth and up close the unique and whimsical landscapes of Cappadocia with your guide before being transferred back to your hotel.
