Went on this tour as a family coz we wanted to explore the important spots. Lots of amazing stops during the day. Goreme was my favourite of course. All these structures were in such a good condition. It is truly unbelievable. Lunch was tasty and I liked the restaurant a lot. My wife was excited with everything and she kept on asking things. Thank god we had a very helpful guide who knew every single detail about the sites. Overall I recommend this tour. It has a bit of everything and it was a very interesting day.
