Turkey: Full day Tour of Cappadocia and Kaymakli Underground City

  Istanbul, Turkey


Explore southern Cappadocia with a full-day guided tour with lunch.

After breakfast, you will be picked up from your Ürgüp or Göreme hotel before driving to south Cappadocia, an area famous for its moon-like rock formations, fairy chimneys and ancient subterranean settlements.

Along the way, your guide will be explaining the region’s geology.

We will stop at Pigeon Valley, a beautiful gulley where thousands of pigeon houses have been hewn into rocks and cliffs. You’ll be able to snap plenty of photos as your guide explains how, through the centuries, local farmers kept pigeons to use their droppings as a crop fertilizer.

Next, we will drive on to the Red Valley, a stunning area of red  and multicolored rock cones, peaks and cliffs. You will walk the trails with your guide while taking in the view of the caves, vineyards and orchards.

As you look around, peek into some of the hidden rock churches all around the area and learn how Christians utilized them through the ages.

The tour will continue to Kaymakli Underground City, one of the best preserved of its kind in Cappadocia. You will get to head underground and delve into its hand-cut rock passage and rooms as you discover how long-ago Christians used them as hideaways to escape persecution.

Your next stop will be old Çavusin, a deserted village cut into a hillside where there are rock houses, caves and shelters where people once lived.

During the tour, we will stop for a lunch break at a local restaurant before visiting Avanos, a town famous for its pretty pottery and craft industries. You can attend a workshop to see the potters in action and make your own masterpiece.

Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
