Pigeons have always been important for Cappadocian people. Their eggs and droppings were used for different purposes. For this reason, local people carved houses for them to the slopes of valley.

This trip was so amazing, the underground city, trek near the river, the canyon, the stone company and the Turkish delight company and also other small stops we had. The guide (Saleem) explained to us things in detail.

This was an exceptional tour organised by Stone Land travel. Would highly recommend this one day tour. There are similar tours offered by every other travel agency in Cappadocia, but since the tourism is unionised here, the prices vary very little between agencies.
After being picked up from our hotel in a minivan, we were transferred to a bus which would take us on the tour.
Our guide Mr.Salim was very energetic, friendly and gave the right amount of information at the various stops. The included lunch was a set menu and very basic in quality and quantity, but what else can you expect on group tours.
the highlight of the tour was the 3.5km hike along the majestic river in Ilhara Canyon. The natural landscapes was simply breathtaking.
The gemstone stop was a bit unnecessary but worth a glance. We were dropped back to the bus station after the tour from where we walked to our hotel. Some guests were offered a drop back to their respcetive hotels on request.
Pro tip: Do not carry a heavy bag as this tour involves plenty of walking, crouching, climbing. Leave heavy bags in the tour bus if need be.

Cappadocia is really amazing and this tour will probably leave you with the reason for it. Our tour guide, selim was knowledgeable and friendly making the whole journey comforting. Left with a slight disappointment that we did not visit the Pigeon valley, maybe perhaps there aren’t any pigeons during winter.

The Green Tour was well conducted and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and catered to the requirements of all. The pick up was in time, the coach nice and the lunch at the end was a good spread catering to all tastes. The Direnkeu underground caves tour was very well conducted and the Ihalara valley trek very nice.
Worth the money and time. A good trup
