We offer two different packages for this tour. You can either choose – 3 STAR PACKAGE: AKKUZUM HOTEL OR SIMILAR – CAVE HOTEL PACKAGE: PIETRA CAVE SUITES / CAPPADOCIA PALACE OR SIMILAR.
Fascinating views, secrets of great civilizations, unearthly landscapes – all this characterizes Cappadocia in the best possible way. There is no such abundance of secrets in any place on the whole planet! And although many of them have long been answered, there is still something mysterious in Cappadocia that attracts travelers from all over the world. Become a part of that amazing history – walk through the amazing valleys and fall in love with Cappadocia as your own home. She will definitely reciprocate and does not skimp on vivid memories for a long memory!
Our Side Cappadocia Tour starts early in the morning – our bus will pick you up at the appointed time to take you to Cappadocia. An overnight trip will give you the opportunity to sleep before an eventful walk through Cappadocia. In the morning you will gradually begin to explore the culture of Cappadocia. The Mevlana Museum will introduce you to the culture of the dervishes. After visiting Mevlana, the usual figurine of a whirling dervish will take on a special meaning for you. Another symbol of the East is camel caravans, and although modern Turkey rarely evokes associations with merchant caravans, this still belongs to part of the history of these lands. Caravanserai is just the place where merchants could stop for the night and at the same time offer their quality goods to others. It was in those days that such an amusing process as bargaining was born. After all, bargaining is always appropriate when you come to the market in Turkey!
Going down to the underground city of Saratli, you will be overwhelmed by different feelings – delight, confusion, fear, humility. Underground cities are able to evoke any feelings in their visitors – after all, few people managed to face life without sunlight. Here you will see not just caves – local premises were suitable for both personal needs and household ones. Faith has become one of the postulates of life in the dungeons – therefore, at a depth of several meters from the surface, you can also look at churches and chapels – this is how people managed to carry the teachings of Christ through the ages.
After a night in Cappadocia, another busy day awaits you. The valleys of Cappadocia are famous for their pillars – scientifically called peribajalars – and in the form that they appear before you, they were created by nature itself. In the Imagination Valley, nature did its best – local pillars have simply unimaginable outlines. Only your imagination will tell you what is in front of your eyes. In the Valley of the Monks, you will find an exciting story about the monastery that was once located in this place, but Göreme does not even need to die. The largest open-air museum on its territory has preserved over 400 churches and monasteries – although outwardly you can hardly see the differences between residential buildings and religious buildings.
Pigeon Valley and Uchisar will be our last stop on this exciting adventure. Abandoned dovecotes, abandoned houses and the most expressive fortress in all of Cappadocia – Uchisar Castle, which allowed the development of life at the foot of the cliff. A trip to Cappadocia risks becoming the most delightful memory of a lifetime and will definitely allow you to look at the rich culture of the Turkish people in a new way!

I can recommend this trip to any tourist that doesn’t feel like traveling on their own in Turkey, as you can have great experiences and pretty much enjoy almost everything that Cappadocia has to offer. There was so much to see and the hotel we stayed in was very nice and Turkish night a lot of fun, drinking and dancing. The hot air balloon flight was absolutely amazing. You actually get to see all of the sights over again but from the air. Over 30 balloons were in the air at the same time so plenty of opportunity for great photos. Value for money off the chart. We will use this company again.
