Description

See the remarkable highlights of Cappadocia on this full-day tour to the region's best hidden landmarks. This tour shows you spectacular area sights like the Derinkuyu underground city, the volcanic gorge of Ihlara Valley, the cave churches along the Melendiz River.

After pick-up from your hotel in the morning, your tour begins with a ride to Derinkuyu, where an expansive 5-level complex forms one of the deepest and most fascinating underground settlements in Cappadocia. See the courtyards, stables, churches, and wineries that lie beneath the earth, all interconnected by an extensive network of tunnels.

Next, venture to Ihlara Valley for a 2.5-mile (4-km) walk along the Melendiz River. Check out the secluded cave churches—ancient structures carved out of the valley walls—on your way to the village of Belisirma for lunch at a local restaurant near the river.

After lunch, make a short photo stop at Yaprakhisar for an unforgettable panorama of the cave village and fairy chimneys around you. Make your final stop at the Selime Monastery, one of the biggest and most fascinating religious settlements in Cappadocia, before you return to your hotel in the evening.

First of all let me tell you my flight from Istanbul was delayed for about an hour and half , I kept on contact with tour operator since I missed my pick up time from the hotel they were kind enough to send a car to pick us up and join the tour at the first stop , thank you very much for that In the other hand our tour guide was ok since it looked that we were rushing through the tour .

This tour takes you to Kaymakli Underground City, not Derinkuyu. Furthermore they make two additional stops not mentioned here at a jewelry factory and candy store where they try to sell tourists overpriced goods! Not at all pleased with that. Also, both the driver and guide seemed very sick and should not have been operating the tour in their condition.

We did not go to the planned area instead we went to Kaymakli which we were told was better. Very good guide and restaurant food excellent
