Full description
Start the tour at 9 AM with pick-up from your hotel. After a 5 minute drive,  set out on a hike through the beautiful Rose Valley which will take just over an hour. Pass by fairy-chimneys, local farms, pigeon houses, and rock-hewn cave chapels. Admire the wonderful range of rose-colored hues in the valley which change in intensity depending on the season, time of day, and weather conditions. Learn about the history and the unique formations of Cappadocia during the hike from your guide. Ah the end of the hike, make a quick stop at the picturesque old Cavusin cave village. Then head to Monks Valley (Pasabag), where you will see the mushroom-shaped fairy chimneys and St. Simeon's monk cell. Then, drive to Goreme for lunch. In the afternoon, enjoy a tour of the Kaymaklı underground city, the first and most popular underground city in Cappadocia. Discover how this complex carved underground was used for hundreds of years by locals to hide from Romans, Persians, and Maurs. The final destination on the tour will be a photo stop at the bottom of Uchisar Rock-cut castle. Enjoy return transfer back to your hotel at around 4 PM.

Day spent between the nature of the Red valley and the Byzantine churches. Our super knowledgeable and helpful Tolga guide showed us some little pearls off the beaten track. The underground city of Kaymakli was a real surprise, one of the most particular destinations ever visited in my travel experience abroad. Thanks to the help of our guide we were also able to shop in authentic places not frequented by tourists. Tour recommended for those who want to see Cappadocia in a different way and without obligation, as all travel and organization are the responsibility of the guide.
