A very well managed tour with a super friendly and knowledgable guide. Every place we visited was enjoyable and the background very well explained. I would like to thank Noor for making the tour so enjoyable with her depth of knowledge and wit. The included lunch was at an exclusive restaurant with delicious food and drink. I would also like to mention here that the tour guide was very helpful in getting us back at the hotel well in time as we had to catch the airport shuttle at a specific time.

The tour met (and in some moments exceeded) expectations, with visits to the most beautiful viewpoints where you can admire the rock formations and houses carved into the rock, as well as the Uchisar Castle (with camel photos), the pottery of Avanos (a girl in the group had one made on the spot!). Lunch is buffet style, but don't trust anyone who says the food is bad, because there is everything and more, despite the many groups that go you can eat as much as you like and above all choose (pasta, rice, spelt, vegetables, meat , salad, sweets at will ... only drinks on the side but each one costs 1-2 euros at most: my wife had a freshly squeezed orange and carrot juice). After lunch we went to the Fairy Chimneys, also entering a cave at the top, which came out on the other side of the valley (impressive!), and finally to the Goreme Open Air Museum, the highlight, with its houses and churches rocks, explained very well by the Uğur guide!

It was a good tour. However, my feeling was that they were a bit rushed. It would also be worth it if they included the entrance to the Ushisar Palace, which we were told could not be entered because it was dangerous, but the next day we entered and it is definitely worth it
