Full description

Get an insider’s view of Cappadocia’s most iconic spots on an all-inclusive trip from Istanbul. Walk in the land of fairy chimneys. Hear commentary from your guide along the way about fascinating sites like Goreme Open Air Museum, Avanos Village, Uchisar, Avanos, Underground Cities, Ortahisar, and Pasabag.

Day 1: Flight to Kayseri and Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia

Catch your domestic flight to Kayseri. Start with a visit to the Goreme Open Air Museum, a cave city in the Goreme Valley. See rock-cut churches, kitchens, and wineries left from Anatolian Christians. Gaze at Byzantine frescos at this UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn about its history. Next, make your way to Devrent Valley, famous for its animal-shaped rocks. See a rock pillar that looks like the Virgin Mary, holding Jesus Christ. Continue to Pasabagi Valley or Monks Valley to enjoy the wonderful landscape. Make your way to Avanos Village, the region known for its pottery, silk, wool and carpet weaving, wine cultivation, and agriculture. See the natural as well as human-made masterpieces of this charming old town. Savor a typical Turkish lunch. Experience pottery-making with local experts. After treating yourself to a hearty lunch, continue to Goreme Panorama, for views of fairy chimneys, which are tall rock formations with caps on top. Make the most of your time in Cappadocia by visiting Uchisar. Get to the top of the rock castle in the center of the town, the highest point of the region, a perfect vantage point for a panoramic view of the stunning Cappadocian landscape. After sightseeing, be driven to your hotel. Spend the night in Cappadocia in a special class cave hotel.

Day 2: Underground Cities Of Cappadocia and Flight to Istanbul

Start your day with breakfast at the hotel. After check-out, embark on a full-day tour. Visit Rose and Red Valley, an incredibly unique area of Cappadocia with sharp ridges, tinted in pink, especially during sunset. Go off the beaten path to visit Cavusin. See its famous rock churches. Next, enjoy a tour of Pigeon Valley, named after the countless man-made dovecotes or pigeon houses carved into the soft volcanic tuff. Walk through a picturesque maze of rock formations. Then, go down to the world of underground cities. Once a refuge for 15000 Christians, these settlements were of enormous value to the development of Christianity. Witness the ancient bedrooms, church, meeting hall, and food storage rooms in this 8-story city connected by 30 kilometers of corridors and passageways. Continue the tour with Ortahisar, famous for its friendly inhabitants, picturesque stone houses, narrow streets, and lovely churches. See the famous castle-like rock formation standing dominantly over the town. After the tour, be driven to Kayseri Airport for your domestic flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival, be greeted by your driver and return to your hotel.

Everything was perfect from start to finish !!! The friendly and professional guide !! The tour is challenging but not too much !! Very nice Hotel Fresco Cave housed in a kind of cave! Attention only to the schedules of the planes which are actually demanding considering that from Istanbul to the airport there are at least 50 minutes by car and moreover they leave you at the airport one hour before for the internal flight !!! Fortunately, everything is rewarded by the beauty of the places !!! One last thing …. The Tour does not include stops near the place where you take the balloons so if you care, be careful because you could be disappointed !!! In any case, everything is very well organized !!!!

Booking the trip to Cappadocia through the Get Your Guide application is the best of successes. From before starting the trip they are attentive, in case you need something. They are in charge of managing the flight from Istanbul, the transfer to the airport from the door of your accommodation in the city, the hotel in Cappadocia (an unbeatable stay at the Fresco Cave Suites hotel), practically all the meals and also the guide in Spanish for tour the city. Regarding the latter, the guide in Spanish, I would like to highlight Ylias's work and enjoyable, fun and educational work. It has been a pleasure to tour this place with you, learning all kinds of details of this dream site in a fun way and in a small group. In addition, Ylias has a great ability to adapt to the group he meets every day. As the visit on the first day ends at six in the evening, this allows you to freely explore the city afterwards. Thanks for everything. We would repeat without hesitation.

The guide has explained very well and has been attentive to everything we needed. We have visited all the places that appeared in the description and all have been worth it. What we believe needs to be improved is the pick-up service from the hotel in Istanbul to the airport to go to Kayseri since it was delayed 40' and from the hotel where we were staying in Cappadocia to the airport it took another 40' and from the agency they had to check us the ticket. In that sense, from the agency they have been very attentive and paid attention to solve this inconvenience.
