If you like wine and beautiful settings, then this is the activity for you!!
Extra romantic and jaw dropping sunset! I really like wine and when I found out there was a wine tasting I booked instantly. Cappadocia is actually famous for wines and I had no idea. Thank god we had an amazing guide with us. He knew a lot of things about local wines. The varieties we tried tasted great and I even bought some to take back home with me. Big plus was the landscape. We overlooked the valley and the sunset was so romantic. I suggest this tour, there’re so many things to learn!
My wine tasting in Cappadocia was extraordinary!! Definitely a must for couples. The company arranged everything to perfection. Honestly the service was extremely good. At the red valley we visited a local winery. it was so interesting to see it in a cave. They explained to us that the environment of the cave gives the wine an extra flavour. And indeed when I tried the wine it was delicious. Not many people in our group, just a few more so we all get friendly and spent an incredible sunset together. Our guide was super, he was friendly and a very cool guy. Excellent job guys thank you!
