Did the sightseeing in Istanbul, and had few days more so Cappadocia was definitely an option. Went there with two friends and we explored every single corner of the region. Bus drive was long, but totally worthy!!!! Our guide was such a nice girl. Now about the tour. Of course we went there for the valleys and I have to say that we went to a lot of them, so yes it was a dream that came true! All these rocks, the fairy chimneys, and the general atmosphere that Cappadocia has, are all impressive. Took pictures all the time so I have to sort them out now 😊 If you have time, join this tour, it was such an experience for us!
Awesome!!!! We had two lovely days full of history and culture. I always wanted to visit this place, I’ve seen so many pictures online and it was like a must for me. When in Cappadocia I felt like I was on the moon. The landscape is so unique and special, and of course, picture-perfect! Our first day was full of sightseeing. Meals were tasty and fresh, and the hotel where we spent the night was lovely. Now, if you are wondering what the best place was, I will say it’s Goreme. The frescoes were insanely beautiful, and well maintained! This 2-day tour was an absolute pleasure!
