Turkey is a country filled with unique landscapes, and Cappadocia is no exception. Journey with us on an out-of-this-world Cappadocia tour that travels through the regions' breathtaking landscapes, valleys and towns.

After being picked up from your hotel, arrive in Devrent Valley after a short 10-minute drive. This is where you will first meet the lunar landscape of Cappadocia. After some explanation from your guide who knows all the local stuff about the history, culture and the geological formations of Cappadocia, set out to get right to the heart of this fairytale land. Up first, Devrent Valley - also known as "imagination valley." The unbelievable rock formations make this is a geology nerd's paradise!

Next is Pasabag Valley (or Monks Valley), where you will climb into a fairy chimney chapel to check out the three heads dedicated to St. Simeon. Visit the famous Zelve Open Air Museum to see the best examples of Byzantine art in Cappadocia. Stop at the Geyikli Kilise (the Church with the 46 Deer) and Uzumlu Kilise (The Church with Grapes). You will be given free time to explore this deserted cave village now part of UNESCO heritage sites.

With all that exploring, you'll be hungry and ready to rub shoulders with locals and enjoy a pide or gozleme for lunch! After lunch, check out the abandoned city of Cavusin with its cave mosque, pigeon houses, church and homes. Everything manmade in Cavusin was carved into the rocks in this area, giving you the chance to see a truly fascinating way of life and ancient tradition that you might not find on other tours in Cappadocia. Avanos, the center of terracotta artworks since 3000 BC, will be your next stop. See traditional pottery workshops and demonstrations and have a glimpse into the world of pottery as it was thousands of years ago. This is such an integral part of local culture in Cappadocia that you would be crazy not to see it during your visit. You can even make your own clay pot if you wish, with the local craftsmen to help you polish up your skills.

Our final stops are the Uchisar and Pigeon Valley and Estentepe, where you'll be able to taste some Turkish tea and enjoy the stunning views of Goreme Valley. As this Cappadocia tour comes to a close, you'll be taken back to your hotel in the center of Cappadocia. Your driver will also be happy to drop you off at local transport stations if needed.
