Full description
Start with a 09:00AM pick-up from your Cappadocia hotel and your first stop will be Tatlarin Underground City, 22 kilometers (13 miles) to Nevsehir. Located in the Tatlarin district, this city has many similarities with the Özlüce and Mazı Underground Cities. The underground city has spread to large areas but a small part has been cleaned. Underground cities date back to the Hittite period, mainly carved to protect themselves from the attacks in an emergency. They were used by the Christians during early Christianity from the slaughter of the Roman Empire. After visiting the underground city, drive to Ağzıkarahan Caravanserai. As you actually follow the ancient Silk Road, nothing will be more suitable than a refreshing stop at an authentic traveler's inn, the Ağzıkarahan Caravanserai, which was built in the 13th-century by the Selçuk Empire. Have lunch at 01:00PM and then drive to Lake Tuz, a saline lake occupying a huge area in the arid central plateau of Turkey. See the crystal white salt and spend an unforgettable time at the salt lake. Afterwards, drive back to your hotel at 04:00PM.

It was amazing! So nice private tour and incredible places! Salt lake was definitely memorable... and the understanding city was a very good experience! We strongly suggest this tour... very please with everything (Just one tip, email them about the time when it starts, as it’s organised by a third party agency so the time can be different from the one shown here)
