Full description

Experience the beauty of Cappadocia on an excursion through cultural treasures like the Goreme Open Air Museum, Pigeon Valley, and the town of Avanos. Get treated to a buffet of Turkish cuisine as you learn about the area's traditions and lifestyle from your local guide.

Get picked up from your hotel in Nevşehir and stop at a panoramic lookout to admire unique rock formations and enjoy a clear view of Uchisar Castle. Hear about the significance of this ancient site and the rich history of the Cappadocia region.

Up next is the perplexing Goreme Open Air Museum, with its uncanny facade and extravagant interior. Take in the frescoes that cover the walls of these cave churches and see first-hand why this location has earned recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Move on to Love Valley, a famous site for marriage proposals, to wander around the mushroom-shaped formations known as 'fairy chimneys'. Take a break to enjoy an all-you-can-eat vegetarian lunch before continuing on to Pigeon Valley. Additionally, visit Monk’s Valley and its refuges carved in stone.

End the day in Avanos, a picturesque town along a river that supplies clay for their 4,000-year-old tradition of pottery. Witness a kick-wheel demonstration by a local potter and seize the opportunity to try this ancient custom for yourself.
