Overview

Leave your hotel early in the morning ready to catch a domestic flight at Istanbul airport. Upon arrival at Kayseri or Nevsehir drive to the Cappadocia region where you will meet with your tour guide.

The Devrent and 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.

Have a break for a tasty lunch at a traditional local restaurant before proceeding to Kaymakli. Here you will find 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.

After Kaymakli drive to Goreme, where there is a worldwide famous open-air museum where you will visit several rock-cut churches. These churches have incredible paintings on the walls and ceiling dating back to the 10th century. Also, you will get to visit Uchisar Rock Castle.

At the end of this tour if there is enough time you can enjoy dinner (at your own cost), before returning to the airport for your flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival to Istanbul, you will be dropped off to your hotel.

The order of this itinerary may vary.

If you ever take a holiday to Turkey, I would say that the history and culture are a pleasant surprise. We were staying in Istanbul and decided to spread our wings and take this tour. I have never experienced anything like it. The rocky terrain, the fairy chimneys are like something from a futuristic world. Although I'm not a religious person, I so enjoyed the churches in Goreme, some of which date back to the 10th Century.

I took this magical tour of Cappadocia last week, and it was the highlight of my holiday. I was a little unsure being a lone traveller but was reassured by Lauren at privatetour.com, and she couldn't have been more helpful. I loved every part from the mushroom shaped chimneys to the underground city and Uchisar Rock Castle. Absolutely worth the cost, perfect!!
