With chiseled underground cities and eroded volcanic rock creating fairy chimneys, Cappadocia is a fascinating landscape that provides an exclusive experience. Enjoy its bounty on this 2-day tour. 

Day 1: Kayseri - Cappadocia (D)In the morning, meet your guide at either the Kayseri airport or your Cappadocia hotel and then begin your 2-day Cappadocia trip aboard an air-conditioned coach. Start with a drive to Devrent Valley to see a geologic array of volcanic formations. Hear about how wind and air eroded these unique fairy chimneys over millennia. Continue to Pasabag (Monks Valley) to admire mushroom-like obelisks that look like something conjured up by Dr. Seuss. 

Next, cruise to Avanos and learn about Turkey’s age-old craft of pottery-making. Enjoy a chance to put your hands to work as you mold your own creative pottery during a workshop. Before heading to the Open-Air Museum, break for lunch in Goreme. Then, duck in and out of the museum’s preserved Christian cave dwellings and discover chapels and churches covered in ancient frescoes. 

Leave the museum and head to your overnight accommodation in a fairytale cave hotel (subject to availability). Savor a pleasant dinner and enjoy a relaxed evening under the stars.

Day 2: Cappadocia Sightseeing (B)If you select the hot-air balloon option, begin the morning with a sunrise flight over magical Cappadocia. Leave at 5am from your accommodation and head to a delightful buffet breakfast at the hot-air balloon office (included). Next, take a short drive to your hot-air balloon flight pad. Arrive and watch as a huge fire torch fills the balloon. Climb aboard your trusty wicker basket with your pilot and float into the dawn sky for a 1-hour flight. Enjoy spectacular views of green valleys and volcanic rocks molded by natural forces. Glimpse out over the sky and see the Cappadocia relief, a highland elevated to more than 3,281 feet (1,000 meters) above sea level. After landing safely, celebrate the morning with a complimentary glass of Champagne and a flight souvenir. Finally, cruise back to your hotel.

If you did not option for the balloon ride, rest up and enjoy breakfast before meeting with your group at 10 am for a trip to Rose Valley. Loosen your legs as you hike down to Rose Valley and traverse an area rich with ancient churches. Next, make your way to an old Seljukian and Ottoman village called Cavusin Village and discover the Cave Mosque. Then, head to Kaymakli Underground City where Christians took refuge from persecution. Finally, visit the friendly town of Ortahisar home to a huge monolithic castle. Walk the streets lined with stone homes and charming locals before you hop back on your coach for a voyage to the airport or your hotel where your tour ends.

  • "The company said was fully booked however there are 250 cave hotels with a minimum of 10 rooms each in Cappadocia, seems very unlikely 2500 rooms to be fully booked." See review

2-Day Cappadocia Trip from Kayseri

Was really a great experience. It really worth. The balloon ride is a must. The only bad thing was that we were expecting to stay in a cave hotel. The company said was fully booked however there are 250 cave hotels with a minimum of 10 rooms each in Cappadocia, seems very unlikely 2500 rooms to be fully booked.

Just right. There's a lot to see in Cappadocia, so there's a fair amount of driving around from location to location. The extended walks and tours were the best part.

We had a great time! Very nice tour! However I think it is overpriced and I recommend the guide should give enough time for picture taking. Our guide was talking too much nonstop and we did not have enough time to take photos. Although it was good information, however I think he should give time also in between bus rides to have free time, me time or whatever and upon arrival into the destination should brief us only anout the place for a little bit and give us the time to ourselves.

Hotel Dilek Kaya very good even if wifi not strong enough in some rooms Landscapes amazing. Fist guide Ulun was not so good as the tour was really shortened and at 4 pm I was already back at the hotel, having nothing to do there. Also he didn't go to Red Valley which was on the program. Second guide Fatma was really kind and perfect, she totally saved the tour, it was really amazing and she even bring me to red Vallay what was normally at the program of previous day.

I really liked the tour. We saw different and beautiful places. However, we could have spent more time in certain places, since both days we finished much earlier than established in the schedule.

Luz L
, Jun 2014
It is a good trip, we did more than I expected and visited so many great attractions. The only issue, which was not really that big of a deal but it is an area in which you can improve is that you should give travelers the itinerary before you start the tour. After they picked me up, I had no idea what we were going to do and the guide was telling us every day but it would have been good to have it beforehand. Finally, I had to call the agency because nobody told me at what time I was going to go for the hot air balloon ride on the second day. The experience was great and the guide was exceptional.

Eden P

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. We were lucky to have a small tour group (6 on day 1 and 10 on day 2) which really allowed for a fun dynamic in the group. The tour company really looked after us well and our guide made kept us fully informed and answered all of our questions. The tour was well structured, with some nice walks, tailored for all levels of fitness, as well as some interesting side trips to watch pottery and jewelry being made. The cave hotel was also really nice, which we must admit surprised us for the price. The meals were fully included as well, which made this great value. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the region.

The sites on this tour were great...
Mystelle R
, Jan 2014
The sites on this tour were great, and the itinerary maximized my couple days in Cappadocia. In general, the tour was very good: the groups were small as I only had 2 co-travelers the first day and one the second. The guide's English was very good and he seemed well-informed about the local sites. The hot air balloon service provider was also good, the ride felt very safe, and safety precautions were communicated clearly at the beginning of the ride. The only drawbacks were that I wasn't booked in a cave hotel, as the website had indicated, and the communication from the local operators could have been better. There were several times when I didn't know who would pick me up or when I would transfer, and some of the guide's introductions to sites was given outside the sites rather than while we were exploring the sites, when the information would have been more useful.
