Cappadocia Tours

Tourists visiting this region of Turkey will always book private tours & Cappadocia balloon rides to fly over and see the range of attractions and unique volcanic peaks, rock churches, fairy chimneys and valleys. There are many Cappadocia tour packages to choose from because the main sightseeing highlights are very spread out in this area so book and decide before you go.

The rock churches and valleys are a suburb, but the underground city of Kaymakli is terrific and seeing the ancient sites, and interlinked valleys between Goreme and Cavusin is a must for any visitor on Cappadocia tour packages.

Goreme Open-Air Museum
2 Goreme Open Air Museum is so mysterious and magical the scenery is absolutely stunning, and these fantastic fairy houses and suggestive rock formations must be seen on a Cappadocia private tour. There are numerous valleys each with historic churches and sites. The history, culture, unique geology and archaeology is just breathtaking. The views of the many cave homes, ancient churches are awesome.
Kaymaklı Underground City
3 Cappadocia tour packages of the Kaymakli underground city which was built on the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli and was opened to visitors in 1964. The people of Kaymakli village constructed their houses with nearly one hundred tunnels forming the underground city. The locals of the region sometimes use the most convenient places in the tunnels as storage areas and cellars which they access through their courtyards.        
Derinkuyu Underground City
4 Derinkuyu underground city is very unique; how they managed to build seven floors beneath the surface and then they could live there is a little spooky yet mesmerising! They were cattle kept below ground as well, and it is so hard to take it all in initially. Try a guided tour to learn the full history behind this underground city. This tour may not be suitable for people who have claustrophobia. 
Red and Rose Valleys
5 There are a lot of quaint walking trails to choose from, and you can walk for hours, and everything is conveniently signposted. You will pass by small cafes where you can take a rest and have a drink, and enjoy the fabulous views. The stunning red formations made by the volcanos is just breathtaking. Many Cappadocia private tours will teach you the history behind the volcanic eruption and culture. 
Zelve Open-Air Museum
6 The Zelve Open-Air Museum Cappadocia tour is fascinating; once housing one of the largest communities in the region is a fantastic cave town. Honeycombed with religious chambers, secular chambers and dwelling houses, this foot of engineering and craftsmanship is situated about 10 km from Goreme. The Avanos road is where Christians and Muslims lived together in perfect harmony, until the mid-1920s.  
Pasabag (Monks Valley)
7 Visit Pasabag in Cappadocia where remarkable earth pillars can be seen in the middle of a vineyard (Pacha's vineyard also called Monks Valley). A chapel dedicated to St. Simeon (Simon) and a hermit's shelter is built into one of the fairy chimneys with three heads which is a sight to see.  Your private tour guide will elaborate on the story of St. Simon which is fascinating when you are on your tour of Pasabag.    
Uçhisar
8 Uchisar Cappadocia tours will take you to the highest point in the region to the top of the Uchisar Castle.  It provides a magnificent panorama view of the surrounding areas with Mount Erciyes in the distance.   There are many rooms hollowed out into the rock are connected to each other by tunnels, stairs and passages. At the entrances of the chambers, there are millstone doors similar to many underground settlements of the time.     
Ihlara Valley
9 Private tours of Ihlara Valley's natural landscapes are worth a visit.  Formed many thousands of years ago and situated in Cappadocia, the 14-kilometre massive gorge reaches over 100 metres deep in some parts and have to be seen to be believed.  Archaeologists and historians believe communities of people lived here for centuries as they uncovered many human dwellings and cave churches on their investigations.    
Ürgüp
10 Ürgüp tours will show this beautiful rural retreat hidden away in unspoilt hillsides. Downtown Ürgüp is very modern but still holds onto its village feel, used mainly as a gateway for Cappadocia tours this is a great quiet and restful place to start your holiday. Quaint little stone cut houses that in the 1920s were left discarded and slowly degrading but were transformed once tourism took off. 
Ozkonak Underground City
11 Ozkonak town of Nevsehir sightseeing tours will take you to the Idis Mountain slopes. The structure of Ozkonak central passage leading you underground to the tight corridors connecting all the chambers. You will see sleeping areas, tombs even a winery with rolling stones as doors. The ventilation system is unique and how they communicated is incredible, but your private guide will show you how it worked. 
Soganli
12 Hollowed out of the rock in the Roman era the twin valleys of Soganli are pyramid shaped rocks and pinnacles and are scattered all around the area. Known as a major monastic centre at the time the pinnacles were churches and chapels with living quarters for the many monks residing there. The Snake Church, Hidden Church and Black Hat Church are highlights of this magical place and a must see. 

Travel Tips for Cappadocia

Cappadocia is a beautiful region that we loved visiting on our Turkey itinerary. You need at least 2 days to see the main highlights of Cappadocia, allowing for 2 mornings to take the balloon ride in case there are cancellations for weather. Staying for longer will allow you to get a lot more out of Cappadocia.

How safe is it ? Statistically, hot air ballooning is extremely safe. A commercial passenger flight with a hot air balloon operator is viewed by the Civil Aviation Authority as similar to a commercial passenger flight with an airline. Although you won't be strapped into the basket, it's tall enough to come up to the rib cage of a person of average height. You're not going to fall out. When the balloon first begins to take off, you may feel a twinge of anxiety as the ground gets smaller and smaller. 

Cappadocia is a great place for solo female travel, whether you have never travelled alone before, or you've travelled to 20 different countries by yourself. It should be noted, however, that Cappadocia does not have an “established” backpacking trail like say, Southeast Asia.

Cappadocia has the biggest number of tourists, it's not too 'touristy'. ', and it's most conveniently located for any activities in Cappadocia. It also has a very big number of excellent Cave hotels to choose from.

Balloons usually take off early in the morning about 5:00 to 5:30am, depending on the season because the wind conditions are best around sunrise. Tour companies will pick you up at your hotel, so there's no need to worry about getting to the take-off site while you're half asleep.

While famous for its sunrise hot-air balloon rides, Cappadocia is also known for its enchanting cave dwellings. All across the region, particularly throughout Göreme National Park, you'll find former homes carved into rock faces communities lived in these caves right up until 1952.

The signature dish of Cappadocia, is mantı. Small pasta packets, usually stuffed with meat or cheese and served with a tomato and or garlic sauce.   Cappadocia is one of the great routes, where you can taste the rich cuisine of central Anatolia. Whether it is the legendary Testi kebab, Tandoori dried beans, or other region-special cuisines, dining in Cappadocia would not disappoint.

Turkish cuisine incorporates a huge range of vegetable dishes known as zeytinyagli yemegi  foods cooked in olive oil. The majority are vegetable-based and include green beans, artichokes and of course, eggplants. One of the tastiest eggplant offerings is sasuka.
