Overview

Experience the fairy-tale landscapes of UNESCO World Heritage region Cappadocia in just one day at this comprehensive Best of Cappadocia Tour. Highlights such as Goreme Open-Air Museum, Devrent Valley, Pasabag, Avanos town and more are all included.

The tour starts with your pick-up from the hotel in the morning and continues with the drive through to the Devrent Valley also known as Imagination Valley. After the Devrent Valley, you will realize that your imagination does not have limits. This must-see spot has rocks that look like a camel, seals, snake, dolphins, the hat of Napoleon, and the Virgin Mary holding a baby Christ.

You will then visit Pasabag (Monks Valley) with the best-preserved fairy chimneys in the region. With your friendly local guide, you will now discover mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys with double and triple rock caps & stems. Into some of them with three heads was built Hermit Cells and a chapel dedicated to St. Simeon. Do you know that Pasabagı means Pasha’s Wineyard & Cappadocians are still cultivating many varieties grapes here?

After enjoying this famous and special unique landscape and the peculiar rock formations, we will proceed to the artisan town of Avanos famous for its pottery located on the banks of Red River (Kızılırmak, the longest river in Turkey). Here, you will watch a live pottery demonstration which has been an art practised for about 4000 years and if you’re lucky, you might get to try spinning the pottery wheel for yourself! After tucking into a typical Turkish lunch a nice restaurant (included in the price), you are going to visit the UNESCO-listed ruins of the Goreme Open-Air Museum.

This Museum is where religious education was started in Cappadocia, as well as where St. Basil created new rules of monastery life in Eastern Churches. While you uncover the secrets of Cappadocia’s early Christian settlements, you will also explore the modern cave houses and numerous rock-cut Byzantine Cave churches decorated with fine frescoes with incredible wall paintings, dating back to the 4th-10 the century. Icons with scenes from the Old and New Testament can also be seen.

You will finish your day at Roman gigantic rock-cut Uchisar Castle, Cappadocia’s highest point that offers admiring panoramic views of the surrounding area with Mt Erciyes (the highest mountain in central Anatolia, 3917 m).

Marvel at Cappadocia’s unique topography as you maximise your time and money with this tour!
