Full description
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel to begin a 6.5-hour tour full of incredible natural formations, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and many different types of ancient art.

Your day begins with an exploration of Cappadocia, in particular Devrent Valley. This Valley is also known as “Imagination Valley”, which you’ll understand once you arrive. You’ll see countless different types of Fairy Chimney formations, which formed almost 30 million years ago. Following this, you’ll head to the Zelve Open Air Museum, one of the oldest settlements in Cappadocia and one of the 3 UNESCO Sites in the park. This is an amazing cave town with dwellings built into the sides of rock formations. Now a ghost town due to unsafe erosion, this place once housed Christians and Muslims in harmony with each other.

Next, visit Pasabag, where you’ll see some more Fairy Chimneys: they’re sure to call to mind the Shire from the Lord of the Rings, or the Smurfs. Close by, visit a local village’s pottery shop and see how people survived and created beautiful art in this region dating back to the Hittite period. Sit down for lunch in a local restaurant and rest up for the second half of the tour.  

After lunch, visit the Goreme Open Air Museum, which contains some of the best cave churches in Cappadocia. Admire the frescoes adorning this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, head to Uchisar Castle and Pigeon Valley, two of the best spots for photography in the whole world. 

Hit the road again to return to your hotel—but before you get home, you’ll stop at Goreme Panorama Point to see the beauty of Cappadocia from a different angle.
