3-Day Cappadocia Tour

1. 3-Day Cappadocia Tour

Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia were added to UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 1985. Discover these natural wonders on a 3-day professionally guided tour, choosing from Alanya, Side, and Belek departures. Cappadocia, located in eastern Anatolia, boasts a unique historical and cultural heritage. In addition, the landscape of the region’s Devrent, Paşabağ, and Pigeon valleys is characterized by unusual fairy chimney formations. Millions of years ago, 3 of Cappadocia’s mountains were active volcanoes. Volcanic eruptions and erosion of the tuff layers of volcanic ash created the formations you see in the area today. During this excursion you’ll come across a wide variety of fairy chimney shapes, ranging from conical, pointed, and columnar to hat and mushroom-shaped. Visit an underground city and the Göreme Open Air Museum, which features over 30 rock-carved churches and chapels, dating from the 9th to the 11th centuries, and many with interior frescoes. Your guide will take you to the Mevlâna Museum in Konya, the mausoleum of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi. The site was also the lodge of the Mevlevi order of whirling dervishes. If you like you can choose to see a whirling dervishes show (not included in the tour price).

Great trip

The trip to Cappadocia was fantastic, must get the balloon ride. Ok hotel, nice guide, lots to experience. Could of course have been fewer stops at points of sale

It was a nice trip. Swimming in the canyon was lovely. There was also lunch. Unfortunately, the fishing opportunities were quite simple and could be expanded.

It is a good idea to buy lunch with the group. We also purchased balloon ride and evening entertainment. It wasn't quite cheap but well worth the money.

Totally amazing.

It’s a long drive there but it’s totally worth it. There are lots of excursions to do. My favourite was a balloon flight.

Very interesting and recommended

Everything went very well, nice driver, nice guide
