Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Goreme, Goreme, Cappadocia

A town literally carved into the volcanic rock, Goreme is the gateway to the Goreme National Park, a vast UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses spectacular 10th- and 11th-century cave churches. The park itself is known for its chimney rock formations and is very popular with backpackers. It’s also a great area to sample Turkish cuisine and wine.

Pass By: Cappadocia, Cappadocia

Lying in south central Turkey, the moonscaped region of Cappadocia, southeast of Ankara, is most famous for unique geological features called fairy chimneys. The large, cone-like formations were created over time by erosion of the relatively soft volcanic ash around them. Past cultures have dug into them to create dwellings, castles (like Uchisar) and even entire underground cities like Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, used as hiding places by early Christians. Nearby Kayseri is the gateway to the area.

Stop At: Goreme Open-Air Museum, Merkez, Muze Cd., Goreme 50180 Turkey

The Goreme Open-Air Museum resembles a vast monastic complex composed of scores of refectory monasteries placed side-by-side, each with its own fantastic church. It is obviously the first sight to be visited by any traveler in Cappadocia, standing as it does in the very center of the region with easy access from all directions.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Pasabag, Urgup Turkey

Pasabag in Cappadocia is located on the road to Zelve, coming from Goreme or Avanos. Highly remarkable earth pillars can be seen here, in the middle of a vineyard, hence the name of the place which means: the Pacha's vineyard. Pacha means "General", the military rank, in Turkish and it is a very common nick name. This site is also called Monks Valley. The name was derived from some cones carved in tuff stones which stand apart. Currently, there is a vineyard and a number of tuff cones standing right next to the road.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Pigeon Valley, Uchisar KasabasI Nevşehir Kapadokya, Goreme 50240 Turkey

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Kaymakli Underground City, Derinkuyu Turkey

Kaymakli underground city is built under the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli and was opened to visitors in 1964. The people of Kaymakli (Enegup in Greek) village have constructed their houses around nearly one hundred tunnels of the underground city. The inhabitants of the region still use the most convenient places in the tunnels as cellars, storage areas and stables, which they access through their courtyards. The Kaymakli Underground City has low, narrow and sloping passages. While the underground city consists of 8 floors below ground, only 4 of them are open to the public today, in which the spaces are organized around ventilation shafts.

Duration: 1 hour

The Cappadocia region's most upscale and contemporary tourist city, Urgup has a number of lovely hotels, many built in and around centuries-old cave dwellings. The city and its surrounding area are known for their mysterious fairy chimneys, early Christian rock churches and fine vineyards. A mix of ancient and modern, Urgup is a center for traditional handmade carpets, but also has a lively nightlife. Hot air ballooning is very popular, and a fantastic way to see the area's beauty from above.

We had an amazing day on this private tour. Recep was our guide and we could not have asked for a better one. He was incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much from him. Recep was very friendly, great personality and he made us feel very comfortable throughout the tour. The driver that accompanied us was also very kind. We didn’t have a lot of time in Cappadocia so it was great having a private guide to show us around the best sites. I absolutely recommend, thank you Recep!

Our tour was with the amazing Elif!!! She was really easy to talk to, nice personality, professional, and very knowledgeable about the history of the region and every attraction stop. It was a wonderful day and a great buy. Next time, we come to town, I hope to do another tour with her and the company. Remember, you will pay for entrance fees and lunch!!! Even with having to pay, it was a great value as it was a private tour with only your party. Best thing ever in my opinion, and we still came out on a great value in comparison to other private tours!!! Thanks for a wonderful introduction to Cappadocia, Elif. -C and A!!! Florida, USA FYI: Do not forget to tip for wonderful services. Good tips folks! She's awesome

The tour shows you the essentials. What you are going to see and the history behind is clearly explained beforehand. The caves and the paranormal views were very interesting and really a must to see.
