Overview

Perhaps you have long dreamed of visiting Cappadocia and did not dare to do it because of the long journey. One day tour by flight is going to be a unique opportunity to realize this dream. Direct flight from Istanbul to Cappadocia will take you to the ‘land of beautiful horses’. Visit Kaymakli underground city, Goreme open-air museum, Pigeon valley and Pasabag.

Leave your hotel early in the morning in order to catch a domestic flight in Istanbul airport. Your journey will take around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Upon arrival to Kayseri or Nevsehir drive to the Cappadocia area and meet your tour guide.

The Pasabag valley is a great place to start exploring the lunar landscape of Cappadocia. Here you can see spectacular fairy chimneys with double and triple rock caps. These mushroom-shaped formations have unique style even for Cappadocia. The Pasabag is also known as Monks valley due to the chapel of St. Simeon built into one of the three-headed fairy chimneys.

Have a break for a delicious lunch at a traditional local restaurant (optional for an extra charge). Then proceed to Kaymakli, which is the widest and one of the largest underground cities in Cappadocia. It has been opened to visitors since 1964, but only four of its eight levels. Walk through the narrow corridors of Kaymakli underground city, discover rooms and storages carved from the soft volcanic stone. It will be interesting to see the rolling stone doors, deep wells and ventilation shafts.

After Kaymakli drive to Goreme, where is a worldwide famous open air museum located. Here, in the heart of Cappadocia, you will visit numerous rock-cut churches with incredible paintings on the walls and ceiling. Most of frescoes are dating back to the 10th century. Then go to a unique place, Pigeon valley, which is named for the numerous pigeon houses carved into the rocks. Enjoy spectacular view of dovecotes, rock-cut houses and Uchisar castle.

At the end of the tour you will have a dinner (at your own cost), and after go to airport for a return flight. Upon arrival to Istanbul you will be dropped off to the hotel.
