Full description
On this full-day tour of Cappadocia you'll visit Derinkuyu Underground City, the largest excavated site of its kind in Turkey. At a depth of 85 meters the multi-level city could accommodate up to 20,000 people.

Continue to the Ihlara Valley for a 4-kilometer trek. See cave churches from the 7th-11th centuries, most of which feature brightly colored frescoes.

Stop at Belisirma, a typical Anatolian village, to enjoy lunch and visit some of the churches open to tourists. Stop also in Selime town, known for its rock-cut churches and one of the largest rock-cut monasteries in Cappadocia.

In Goreme, enjoy the beauty of Cappadocia’s lunar landscapes and the many-colored rock formations.

Enjoyed all the sight seeing with a knowledgeable guide passionate about religious history who spoke great English. My favorite was the Saleme Monastery and the underground city of Derinkuyu. I realized afterwards that I could have booked the same tour for 60% of the cost I paid to get your guide.

Memet our guide was amazing. Super knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble and a great personality to match. Overheard some other guides throughout the day who didn’t go into half as much detail as Memet, which really made the day along with his super friendly personality. Well organised, full day of great stops and a great insight into the history of the area.
