Cappadocia Highlights: Private Full-Day Tour with Lunch

1. Cappadocia Highlights: Private Full-Day Tour with Lunch

Begin the day with a pick-up from your hotel and head over to the incredible Goreme Valley. Resembling a vast monastic complex composed of scores of refectory monasteries placed side-by-side, each with its own fantastic church, Goreme is understandably the star attraction of any visit to the region. Continue the tour to Devrent Valley, also known as Imaginary Valley or Pink Valley, this area does not have cave churches like the other valleys of Cappadocia. Next, make your way to Uchisar for a walk through the beautiful valley, often called Valley of the Pigeon Lofts due to the thousands of pigeon houses carved into the soft tufa since ancient times. Enjoy the magnificent panorama of the surrounding land at Mount Erciyes in the distance from the Uchisar Castle and then continue the tour to Pasabag. Pasabag, meaning general's vineyard, is located on the road to Zelve and filled with remarkable earth pillars and mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping for the duration of the tour. Buy local products at the Carpet Handicraft Center and Cappadocia Stone Shop as well as ceramic, pottery, and other textiles.

Goreme Open Air Museum with Underground City Tour

2. Goreme Open Air Museum with Underground City Tour

After pick up, head to the deepest Underground city to explore its 4 floors, 30 meters deep. Move on to the highest point of the center of Cappadocia in Uchisar town, Uchisar Castle. Visit the most important sight, Goreme Open Air Museum, to see its many churches with wall paintings (frescoes) describing the life of Jesus Christ, dating back to the 10th century. The Cavusin village will be your next stop. Make the most of this trip to see an abandoned village and its Greek Houses.  Take some time for lunch in Avanos before visiting a pottery shop, and learn how to make potteries and seramics. Move on to Pasabag, a sacred place and home to many monks. In Pasabag, prepare to see some of the largest fairy chimney rock formations, with two or three caps each.  Finally, stop at Devrent Valley and marvel at its rock formations, shaped like animals, the reason that this place has been nicknamed Imagination Valley. At around 5:00 PM, head back to your hotel.

Great tour with all the highlights of Cappadocia. The guide knows a lot about the history and the planes and takes wishes into account if you choose to see something else or skip something. You have a private driver who always waits outside the visited places. Very recommendable tour.

It was only two of us and we were picked up by a new and clean spacious van. Our guide Nihat was very very helpful. It was a great experience, we got to see all main sites, along with an underground city visit in one day. Highly recommended to everybody.

It was an amazing experience. There are so much beauties in Cappadocia and you can feel the history. If you are in love with nature, Cappadocia is just for you and really you should go there.

Cappadocia is enchantment place that everyone should see. Perfect, perfect!!!

It was great for me to experience such a great event
