What people are saying about Kayseri

Everything was wonderful!! Highly recommended !! The Stoneland Travel company complied with everything and more. Transfers, flights, excursions. The guides were very attentive and knowledgeable about the topics. The hotel they booked for us, Kremer Cavern House, was in the middle of the Capadokya caves (meters from the center) and its owner was very friendly. They were in every detail. It was a pleasure to travel with people as responsible and kind as them. We spent very beautiful days!

Everything was perfectly planned. The timing was perfect too: neither jostling nor losing time. The size of the groups = +/- 15 people was great. The supervision by the managers was very professional and personalized. The visits (Presentation of products) were not too long and not too insistent. Small regret: our hotel was not in the neighborhood troglodype but rather in the center of Göereme

Very informative and fascinating tour

The two days are full ones but I would not have missed any of it. You learn about the history of the region for example why there were underground cities. You learn about the geology. And you see the crafts of the region. The balloon flight is breathtaking.

The tours were great and Stoneland travel did a great job setting up it all, being available for any questions at all times on WhatsApp and helping with extra travel arrangements while we were in town.

Perfectly organised, big days and a lot to see so pretty tiring, but would do it again.
