Full description
Get picked-up from your hotel. First, enjoy a panoramic view of Göreme and marvel at some of the best views in the region. Your guide will have plenty of knowledge to offer you about your surroundings.

Afterwards, visit Kaymakli Underground City which is the biggest and deepest underground settlement. It has 8 levels connected with narrow tunnels. You will visit stalls, stores, churches, wineries, kitchens and the other sections which are open for visitors. While you are visiting the sections, your guide will complement the experience with their expert knowledge.

Next, enjoy a local lunch in an authentic restaurant. After, visit Pigeon Valley which is located in Uçhisar town and offers another spectacular panoramic view. The next destination is Goreme Open Air Museum, where you can see rock-cut churches carved by early Christian monks. Your guide will give you information about Christianity and the Monastic Life of Cappadocia.

The next stop will be Çavuşin, which is the Old Greek Village, abandoned after Population Exchange in 192. This town is located on the banks of the Red River which is the longest river in Turkey. It is famous for its pottery which started around the 2nd millennium B.C by Hittites. You will have a tour of the town and then visit a pottery workshop and learn about red clay work and ceramics. One of the masters of the discipline will even demonstrate the ancient free-hand technique that has been used throughout history.

Then visit Paşabağı where spectacular mushroom-shaped rock formations can be seen. Paşabağı is also called Monks Valley because of the Chapel of Saint Simeon which is located in the valley. The next stop is Devrent Valley, which is also known as İmagination Valley. The valley contains curious red rocks, some of which resemble animal forms: a camel, a lizard, an owl, a snake, a chicken and a penguin.

We only had a one day stay at Cappadocia and this tour helped us explore almost all major destinations. Our guide was very informative about all the places and was very friendly. He also took us to local carpet making , pottery making and stone making artisans which helped us get into their culture a little more. Highly Recommended.

Great day out with great know-how with our guide. Super chill and brought my wife and I to secret and great photo taking spots. Had tea with my guide and chat about everything from developments, religion and politics. This was a good decision to have a guide, where the images and history of the place now are more meaningful. Did the tour on 20/11/2019 - fantastic day out

Fun full day out.

We wanted to see all the sites off Cappadocia and this tour certainly fits most of it in. Our tour guide was incredible his English was fantastic and he was very descriptive with his explanations. We felt we learned a lot about all the destinations on the tour. We’d also like to say a huge thank you for organising a trip to the underground city for us the following day as we didn’t manage to squeeze it in due to them closing early. We’d like to note that the tour states it does not include lunch or entrance fees but we did have a tasty lunch at a local restaurant and all entrance fees were included.
