Description - What to expect

Upon arrival at Izmir Airport, you wıll be greeted by your driver and will commence your drive to Cappadocia. Once you arrive, you wıll join other group participants and start your full-day tour.

Begin your day at the Goreme Open Air Museum, resembling a huge monastic complex of rock-cut churches dated from the second half of the 9 Century, with beautiful colorful frescoes decorating the walls. Next, visit Devrent Valley famous for its quirky animal-shaped rocks. It looks like a sculpture zoo made by nature! There is even a rock pillar that looks like the Virgin Mary, holding Jesus Christ. Take in the unique lunar landscape of the valley and feel like you're in another World.

Continue your Cappadocia tour from Istanbul to Pasabagi or the Monks Valley. See a chapel dedicated to St. Simeon and a hermit's shelter built into one of the fairy chimneys with three heads. Pasabag valley contains some of the most striking fairy chimneys in Cappadocia with twin and even triple rock caps. This style is unique even for Cappadocia and these fairy chimneys are named mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys.

At this point, your Cappadocia tour from Istanbul comes to an end, and you are driven back to Kayseri Airport for your 1 hour 30 min domestic flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival at Istanbul Airport, you wıll greeted by your driver who wıll drive you safely back to your hotel.
