Full description
Start with a 09:00AM pick-up from your Cappadocia hotel and your first stop will be Saratli Underground City. 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 Tepesi Delik Han Caravanserai, one of Cappadocia's most important historical locations. 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.

    The Cappadocia Tour: Underground City, Caravanserai and Salt Lake is generally very good. Our guide Selim Ayaş very nice and attentive. The Caravanserai stop is of no interest. In my opinion, the stop is strategic to be able to have a coffee or go to the bathroom since Salt Lake is very far away. It is an incredible lake although nobody comments that walking in the lake is painful, since the salt is like crystals. Still worth it. What disappoints me is the food stall, I was expecting a small typical Turkish place. Not a macro roadside restaurant without charm where they only serve meat. For a vegetarian like me, it was very disappointing. We went to the underground city in the afternoon and there was no one there, we were alone and it is appreciated. Our guide explained everything very well to us and the truth is that I found it very interesting.

    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)

    Incredible - MUST SEE

    My experience with this tour was amazing, my guide Selim was very well informed and had a lot of interesting information. The Salt Lake is an absolute must see and i feel very lucky to have seen it. A great drive, friendly and safe as well as an amazing lunch stop.
