Full description

Get picked-up from your hotel. First, enjoy a panoramic view of Göreme and marvel at some of the best views in the region. Your guide will have plenty of knowledge to offer you about your surroundings. Afterwards, visit Underground City which is the biggest and deepest underground settlement. It has 8 levels connected with narrow tunnels.

You will visit stalls, stores, churches, wineries, kitchens and the other sections which are open for visitors. While you are visiting the sections, your guide will complement the experience with their expert knowledge. Next, enjoy a local lunch in an authentic restaurant. After, visit Pigeon Valley which is located in Uçhisar town and offers another spectacular panoramic view.

The next destination is Goreme Open Air Museum, where you can see rock-cut churches carved by early Christian monks. Your guide will give you information about Christianity and the Monastic Life of Cappadocia. The next stop will be Çavuşin, which is the Old Greek Village, abandoned after Population Exchange in 192. This town is located on the banks of the Red River which is the longest river in Turkey. It is famous for its pottery which started around the 2nd millennium B.C by Hittites.

You will have a tour of the town and then visit a pottery workshop and learn about red clay work and ceramics. One of the masters of the discipline will even demonstrate the ancient free-hand technique that has been used throughout history. Visit a rug workshop where all the products are made by hand in the traditional way.

Then visit Paşabağı where spectacular mushroom-shaped rock formations can be seen. Paşabağı is also called Monks Valley because of the Chapel of Saint Simeon which is located in the valley.

The next stop is Devrent Valley, which is also known as İmagination Valley. The valley contains curious red rocks, some of which resemble animal forms: a camel, a lizard, an owl, a snake, a chicken and a penguin.

It was a very good tour that fulfilled my request. Our guide, Mr. Hasan, used to live in Japan, so he speaks Japanese very well and answered our questions immediately with his extensive knowledge. With an English tour, it's difficult to understand even the smallest details, but the detailed explanations were given in Japanese, making the tour a memorable one.

El tour privado es una forma cómoda y fácil para conocer Capadocia. Ali nuestro guía nos explicaba cada uno de los lugares turísticos y la historia. Ali el guía estuvo atento a nuestros tiempos y a lo que queríamos hacer, el único detalle es que te empujan a ir a visitar los talleres que en general son solo para comprar.

Excellent day tour with private guide & driver to see the highlights of Cappadocia. The van was very nice and clean. Our guide Elif was very knowledgeable. We saw a lot in one day. She also offered us the use of umbrella for the hot sun and cold drinks which was much appreciated after a hot walk in the sun. We only wanted to do a few things since the weather was very warm and she kindly accommodated our schedule. Highly recommend this tour.
