Cappadocia Express in One Day

Take the early morning flight to Cappadocia where you will be met at the airport by your personal guide and driver to start your extensive tour of Cappadocia.
Today’s Itinerary is a combination of our very popular North and South Cappadocia Tours. Start the morning with a visit to Esentepe Panoramic view point, enjoy the picturesque landscape stretching in front of you while your guide will give you your first briefing on Cappadocia.

Kaymakli Underground City

Continue on to the Kaymakli Underground City one of the many such settlements which early Christians used as shelters to hide from their enemies. After this unique Underground adventure we will stop by Uchisar Castle a natural Rock Hill which was used as a fortress during the Roman periods. In and around the Hill are Cave and Pigeon Houses carved in the Rock which gives it a very unique look. Uchisar Castle is also an important sight in terms of it being the highest point in Cappadocia.

Goreme Open Air Museum,Pigeon Valley and Avanos

Next we will stop at Pigeon Valley view point to enable you to take some great photographs before continuing to Goreme Open Air Museum. Goreme Open Air Museum was once the Monastery settlement of the first Christians in Cappadocia, here Christianity blossomed and some of the Cave Churches which are displaying awesome Frescos can be seen here along with the living quarters with kitchens and dining rooms. Lunch will be served in an authentic Cave Restaurant in Avanos. Avanos is a Pottery Village where since the Hittite periods (2000BC) locals still use this tradition of their Ancestors.

Pigeon Valley, Devrent Valley and Local wine Factory

You will have the opportunity to learn more about this tradition which is applied on a kick wheel as used by the Hittites. After the Pottery demonstration at a family run workshop we continue to Pashabagi. Pashabagi is also known as Monks Valley, another monastic settlement where you can see the Hermit Cells and Churches built by the Monks in these 3 headed Pinnacles symbolic of the Holy Trinity. Also at Pashabagi you can see how the fairy Chimneys were formed over this time. Drive on to Devrent Valley, Imagination Valley, and the most surreal landscape in the region, we will also stop at the famous Fairy Chimneys where the family of fairies are waiting to greet you.
