After a quick safety briefing and demonstration, get some practice on the bikes before beginning your tour. When you are 100% comfortable behind the wheel, begin your tour of Cappadocia's must-sees. First, drive through Sword Valley, the smallest valley in the region, and admire the sword-like fairy chimneys which give the valley its name.

Full-Day Cappadocia Red Plus Tour

2. Full-Day Cappadocia Red Plus Tour

You will be picked up from your hotel by a professional tour guide after your breakfast at around 09:45/ 10:00. Your first encounter with Cappadocia will be Devrent Valley (Imagination Valley).  In this valley, different rock formations can be seen as animals which is why this valley can also be called Imagination Valley. Use your imagination to describe all these rocks. Then, head to Monks Valley or also known as Paşabağları.  There is a bit of a difference between these two meanings in English and Turkısh. Monks used to live here and hide from the religious pressures of the Roman government or local people.  During the Roman period, most of the people were pagans and not Christian. That's why all the history of these places comes from this point.  In Turkish, Paşa means men who have lots of money and land. Bağ means land or area that can be purchased. In the following years, all these rich men bought some part of the land for their own economic power. Afterward, the local people were known as Paşabağları. Avanos town will be your third point of interest. In the art center, you will see how to make pottery and ceramic in the Cappadocia region. The history of pottery making and ceramic dates back to the Hittite emperors (B.C. 4000).  Avanos is the only town that is famous for pottery and ceramic made using red and white clay only. In the art center, you will be shown a pottery-making demonstration and will also be able to try it yourself. Then, head to an open buffet lunch in a local, clean restaurant as a tour break.  After a short photography break at the Esentepe viewpoint, see the stunning Gōreme Valley and fairy chimneys. The largest and tallest fairy chimney known as Uchisar Castle will be your next point of interest located in Uchisar. It is also a natural structure, not made by human hands.  In case of dangerous situations, you will not be allowed to climb the castle.  The most important place for Christianity, Göreme Open Air Museum will be waiting for your visit after Uchisar Castle. This will be completely similar to today's university model. You will see dormitories (for men and women), churches (9 to 10), chapels, dining rooms, mutual places, and classrooms.  You will see wall paintings or frescoes on most of the walls of the churches in this museum. These paintings depict some scenes from the Bible or some other important point in the life of Jesus Christ. People used to live here as students and teachers together. In addition, teachers gave Christian courses to their students from the Bible. Then after their graduation, they would go to some other part of Turkey in order to spread and teach Christianity to the people.  Finally, you will visit the deepest and largest underground city in Cappadocia. Consisting of seven floors, you will see all parts of the underground city open to the public and learn how people survived under limited opportunities.  Mainly, you will see stalls, dining rooms, food storage rooms, churches, kitchens, and other similar places you would normally find in a living area. Your professional art historian guide will gladly explain all the details and the history of the places you will visit during your tour schedule.

Awesome trip, the guys are so nice and attentive. They want to make sure you have a nice trip. They gave us glasses and scarves at start and then took us from one spot to another. They would stop one ATV at picturesque spot so that you can hop on and take photos. I missed one spot where they parked the ATV for photos, guide asked me if I have been to take photos there I said I was unaware about it but told him I couldn’t be bothered bcoz it was almost time to go he insisted me to go and take photos there as we still had few more minutes. I really liked the attitude of the guides all very young, very professional and they all speak good English. Highly recommended! I read somewhere in the comments some booked early morning sunrise tour, I bet that would be a truly different experience watching Baloons fly. Anyways its my last day here, maybe next time.

They picked us up from our hotel on time. With a vehicle just for us. On site we were greeted with a snack. We received the instructions, we were given a helmet, protective glasses as well as for Charlotte hygiene. And a trick to protect us from the sand. The supervisors were very friendly and reassuring; they ensured the smooth running of the circuit throughout. Several stops were made to immortalize the great spots in photos. A real pleasure to combine the two activities. Nice surprise I strongly recommend to people who want to discover the landscapes of Cappadocia while having fun

Activity was well coordinated, pick up and drop off were convenient and seamless. Landscape was fantastic, guide was patient and keeps a lookout for your safety.

Great experience at a reasonable price. This company makes the difference. I saw many others and they don’t provide you with face scarf which is much needed

They call my name at the arrival of my delayed flight and brought me to my booked accommodation. Success!
