Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation by your knowledgeable guide and head out on a small-group tour through Cappadocia. Start with a stop at Goreme Panorama, a scenic viewpoint that presents you with the expansive vista formed by the city below and the stunning rocky hills that back it. Then drive to Derinkuyu Underground City to learn firsthand how early Christians protected and defended themselves from persecutions and invasions for centuries. Hike through Turkey's largest canyon, which features over 2,670 different plants that thrive in the valley's micro climate.

Afterwards, make the 1.5-hour drive to Nar Lake. Stop to take some photos before getting briefly back on the road to reach Ihlara Canyon for a 3.8 km hike along the river and through the area's beautiful nature. After the hike, satisfy your appetite with lunch at a local restaurant in Belisırma.

Following lunch, head to Yaprakhisar Panorama (known for serving as a Star Wars movie set) to view the characteristic fairy chimneys from an incredible vantage point. Then visit Selime Monastery, the biggest religious building in Cappadocia with a cathedral-size church. Before returning you to your hotel, your guide will stop at Pigeon Valley, the best photo spot in all of Cappadocia.
