Full description
The day begins with pickup from your hotel or from Kayseri/Nevsehir airport, and then drives through the Turkish landscape to Cappadocia. Arrive at the site, which is one of the most visited locations in Turkey, and admire the world’s most unique rock formations, formed by volcanic ash and lava that has been eroded by wind and rain.

Explore the onsite Goreme open air museum, originally built in the 2nd century AD and used as a Christian cave monastery until the 11th century. Learn about how pressure from the Arabs against the Christians became so intense that churches and monasteries were created inside the caves to escape it. This fascinating and carefully preserved site is now on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Next, visit the Kaymaklı Underground City as well as Uchisar Castle, which is the highest point of the region. Marvel at its strange appearance, stark interior and amazing panoramic landscape view. Then head to Avanos, a town famous for its pottery that uses red soil from the nearby red river, you can choose to attend a local pottery workshop and learn how to craft with this amazing natural resource. Finally, visit Urgup, a production area for traditional hand-woven carpets, to see and experience this amazing Turkish art.

Thank you for responding carefully to this request

It took time to exchange the pick-up location (hotel premise). There may be few people going to Cappadocia on a day trip, but I thought that it was easy to understand that the details of the correspondence when it was not a hotel pick-up from the beginning were also included. Also, I was worried that the guide to the airport, which I had given to cos in advance, was not transmitted to the local guide. Other than that, the guide was also a very good person, cos's response was good, and it was very good that this request was fulfilled. Thank you very much.
