We had a great time with our guide Said. We were very lucky to have great sunny weather on the day after the balloon ride. We visited some of the best shops in cappadocia for the stones and rugs but the highlight was definitely the cooking experience with the cappadocia green garden 🪴 . Our hosts were very warm and welcoming and we got to learn the very traditional cooking in the village. From the bread to making mouth watering chicken broth rice and egg plant with mince … everything was organic and home made! We had a wonderful time and will definitely recommend to everyone who came to Cappadocia ♥️♥️♥️

The activity is best to be booked at sunset since there are not much people at that time at those locations which are planned, also the sunlight makes the photos very good! The driver was very skilled and the photographer very professional!

A great time with pleasant and super professional people. We had a magical time!
