First day in Cappadocia

Cappadocia, which is commonly thought to be a region of Nevşehir, is actually spread over a wide area, including Nevşehir, but also the central Anatolian cities of Kayseri, Kırşehir, Aksaray and Niğde.

After your arrival at Kayseri or Nevşehir Airport and meeting at the Airport, our Cappadocia tour will begin with a visit to Devrent Valley, notable for its oddly shaped rock formations that, with a little imagination, can resemble seals, kneeling camels and various other animals. We will have a pleasant walk in this uniquely beautiful valley of Cappadocia.

Then we will continue our tour with Paşabağ valley (Monk Valley). Known as both the Pasabag Valley and the "Valley of the Priests", these wonderful landscapes that have preserved their shape for centuries adorn the valley and greet all visitors.

After the Pasabag valley, we will move to Avanos town, which attracts great attention with its red pottery and jugs produced in the region. The longest river in Turkey, the Kızılırmak, passes through the town of Avanos. After lunch, we will visit the Goreme Open Air Museum, which has no other example in the world, to visit churches, chapels and monasteries that were completely carved into the rocks from the 10th to 13th centuries and whose walls were painted with frescoes.

Before returning to our hotel, we will take a scenic tour around the area to take pictures of the unforgettable landscapes of Cappadocia.

Do not forget to talk to your guide for the hot air balloon tour at sunrise on the second day.

You can also consider attending a Turkish night or whirling dervish show in Cappadocia in the evening.

Second day in Cappadocia

It would not be wrong to say that Cappadocia is the most important balloon tour center in the world. If you have made a reservation, we will pick you up from your hotel at around 4 am and take you to the balloon flight point. A magnificent balloon ride at sunrise will take one of the first places among the unforgettables of your life. Cappadocia hot air balloon tour takes 1 hour. After the balloon tour, you will be transferred to your hotel.

Second day tour in Cappadocia

Hiking in the Rose Valley of Cappadocia

We will meet at the hotel lobby at 09:30 in the morning and go to the Rose valley of Cappadocia, which is the best route for trekking in Cappadocia and exploring the churches carved into the rocks by hiking in the valley.

Afterwards, we will take a rest in Çavuşin, an old Greek village known for its Christian houses and churches.

After a delicious lunch in the heart of Cappadocia, we will visit Ortahisar Castle, which has been used as a settlement for ages.

In the afternoon we will visit Kaymaklı (or Özkonak) underground city. Cappadocia underground cities have been designed and built over generations as shelters against attacks and invasions, both in pre-Christian and Christian times. 7 underground cities built by carving volcanic tuff rocks in various periods before Christ have hosted different civilizations.

On the way back, we will visit Pigeon Valley, one of the most beautiful places in Cappadocia, which impresses those who see it most with its history, nature and extraordinary rock formations.

And at the end of the tour, we will transfer you to Kayseri or Nevşehir airport.
