Enjoy a full day tour of the northern part of Cappadocia which is the most amazing part of the volcanic territory. Firstly we drive to Ataturk Airport and take the 1 hour flight to Kayseri or Nevsehir. Upon arrival to the airport, our guide and the driver will meet us and transfer us to Goreme Open Air Museum; the UNESCO recognized medieval monastic complex of painted cave churches and dwellings, carved out of the tufa rock by the Orthodox monks as early as 4th century AD. After we visit here with our expert local guide, we drive to Uchisar village where a natural rock castle offers a great photography from its all angles. From here a short drive brings us to the Pasabagi (or Monk’s Valley) where we view the pillar-like fairy chimneys which also were dwellings and churches, of orthodox hermits. After lunch at a local restaurant in Avanos Town on the banks of Kizilirmak (or Red River), we see some of world famous Turkish Handicrafts being made here. We then continue on to Esentepe view point to look at the fairy-tale like Goreme Town from a bird eye’s view. Before going back to the hotel, we have a stop at the famous Devrent Valley to picture strange formations, some of which look very like a camel, Virgin and the Child and Napoleon.At the end of the tour we will say goodbye to our guide and will be transferred to Kayseri or Nevsehir Airport for our return flight to Istanbul. Upon landing, our Istanbul driver will transfer us to the hotel in the town.
