They picked us up at the hotel , we had lots of fun even though it was raining and we didn’t have much time left in Cappadocia we enjoyed it. They provided rain gear which we didn’t expect. The company was family own and the young guys spoke very good English. They took us to 5 different valleys to take pictures and videos . They were professionals and very polite . The value for the money was definitely right , there was a vendor in one of the stops who sold hot wine which we tried for the first time and enjoy as the weather was a bit cool and rainy ! I recommend this activity to anyone looking to have some fun and adrenaline rush on their vacation!
