Entrance to the site is on the north side. We will offer a delicious lunch and we will visit Urgup that promoted Nevşehir area to the world with its historical heritage and natural beauty. Urgup is probably the busiest of the small towns in the vicinity of the Cappadocian sites. It's possibly the tattiest as well; recent development has mushroomed leaving a grim legacy of poorly designed and serviced buildings. The road down into the town however does take you past some pleasant rock carved dwellings, accommodation and restaurants. It's worth wondering around the old town for a taste of what the place must have been like before we all arrived. Then we will visit wine cellar and taste wines. Then we will visit Monks Valley (Rahipler Vadisi), with its chimneys with multiple stems and caps, some housing chapels and living areas found here, have a particular style. Avanos is set on the banks of the Kizilirmak, the Red River, which gets its name from the clay that it deposits. This clay has provided Avanos with pottery for centuries and the town is still dominated by this industry despite the inroads that tourism has made in the area. The main street has numerous shops and workshops selling plain and decorated pots and plates and you can watch the potters at work using kick wheels, the design has remained unchanged for generations. Many of the workshops will encourage you to have a go yourself. It's harder than it looks. Overnight in Avanos, Urgup or Goreme.

Amazing experience with tour guide especially with Mr. Mithat (Guide). He’s amazing, he is highly recommended. He has very jovial nature and very knowledgeable person to go with. Very soft spoken and patient person. We were with a 8 year old kid, but he managed everything so well that we were more than comfortable with him. He made our trip really comfortable.

We had the private tour with Elif, a young, very personable and smart woman. She gave us a lot of information, the tour itself was great, Goreme openair museum, delicious wine tasting, Avanos ceramics factory and the Pigeon Valley. In addition, we had a great vehicle with a motivated driver. Successful tour! We liked it very much!

A great experience and the tour guide was super knowledgeable of Cappadocia. She took us to 3 wineries and we made a few additional fun stops on the way like the spice market and the center of cappa and more. Plus a complimentary bottle of wine! I recommend to anyone visiting.
