Full description
Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia were added to UNESCO’s World Heritage list in 1985. Discover these natural wonders on a 3-day professionally guided tour, choosing from Alanya, Side, and Belek departures. Cappadocia, located in eastern Anatolia, boasts a unique historical and cultural heritage. In addition, the landscape of the region’s Devrent, Paşabağ, and Pigeon valleys is characterized by unusual fairy chimney formations. Millions of years ago, 3 of Cappadocia’s mountains were active volcanoes. Volcanic eruptions and erosion of the tuff layers of volcanic ash created the formations you see in the area today. During this excursion you’ll come across a wide variety of fairy chimney shapes, ranging from conical, pointed, and columnar to hat and mushroom-shaped. Visit an underground city and the Göreme Open Air Museum, which features over 30 rock-carved churches and chapels, dating from the 9th to the 11th centuries, and many with interior frescoes. Your guide will take you to the Mevlâna Museum in Konya, the mausoleum of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi. The site was also the lodge of the Mevlevi order of whirling dervishes. If you like you can choose to see a whirling dervishes show (not included in the tour price).

It was pretty good overall. Guide was good, hotel was nice and we had a good time. Two issues though: 1. The bus had extremely narrow seats and was really uncomfortable for the long drives. 2. They charge you extra just to go see the balloons, 15 euros per person. The description says the balloon rides are optional for the added expense (about 150 euros) but if you want the privilege of occupying the same seat on the bus you have used the whole time to accompany those who are going to fly will cost extra. That seemed duplicitous to me and left a bad taste in my mouth.

The drive from Antalya is very long and tiring. You first collect other participants to Side, and then change to a big bus. In the evening you reach the hotel, which is more than adequate for 2 nights. The absolute highlight and despite the additional costs not being cheap, the balloon flight is an absolute must. Will remain one of our most beautiful travel moments and we have already experienced and seen a lot in the world. An extra compliment to Metin the tour guide! He lives his job and inspires you all day long with his knowledge, commitment and wit. Fluent in English, German and Russian. Conclusion: very long and exhausting journey, but the hardships are worth it. We can only warmly recommend the tour.
