Overview

With this exciting tour package explore the highlights of Turkey in 3 Days where you will visit the stunning landscape of Cappadocia from Istanbul.

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

Visit Kaymakli, which is the widest and one of the largest underground cities in Cappadocia and has been opened since 1964 to visitors, but only four of its eight levels. Wander through the narrow corridors of Kaymakli underground city, discovering the many rooms and storages that are carved from the soft volcanic stone. It is also interesting to see the rolling stone doors, deep wells and ventilation shafts.

Drive to Goreme, and see the worldwide famous open-air museum and visit several rock-cut churches with incredible paintings on the walls and ceiling, and most of the frescoes date back to the 10th century.

Explore a unique place, Pigeon Valley, which is named for the numerous pigeon houses carved into the rocks and enjoy a magnificent view of the dovecotes, rock-cut houses and Uchisar castle.

Fly to Kusadasi from Cappadocia to explore Pamukkale another highlight of Turkey. Pamukkale that is located in the province of Denizli and is a natural wonder made up of terraces and travertines formed by hot springs and streams that deposit carbonate minerals. Pamukkale waters are believed to have curative powers and have been used as a thermal bath for centuries. Pamukkale, noted for its excellent characteristics, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1988.

Located near to Pamukkale is Hierapolis which was founded in 200 BC by Eumenes II in dedication to the Amazon Queen Hiera and wife of Telephos, the founder of Pergamum. Hierapolis is a popular ancient site that attracts worldwide attention for its grand monuments and buildings. The ancient city of Hierapolis lost its Hellenistic façade because of several earthquakes and gained a new facade that reflects the influences of Roman architecture during the reconstruction.

Welcoming thousands of visitors on Pamukkale and Hierapolis tours for its natural wonders and ancient monuments every year and Pamukkale is waiting to welcome you as well!

I was really looking forward to this tour and ended up being very disappointed. The guide was nice and did a great job of giving us. I do not believe this was worth the cost. Greetings.

We loved our tour and our guide. We were able to see so many sites and get a very good understanding of the history of this city. The pace of the tour was perfect, and by the end of the day we were pretty exhausted. There is no better way to have nice tour. Thank you for showing us your wonderful city!
