What You Can Expect

Small-Group Cappadocia Tour: Devrent Valley, Monks Valley and Open Air Museum in Goreme

Cappadocia Full-Day Tour including Ozkonak and Uchisar

In the morning, meet your guide at your Cappadocia hotel for your small-group day trip to Devrent Valley, Monks Valley and Göreme Open Air Museum. Start the day by driving, in your air-conditioned coach, to the marvelous Devrent Valley. Here, admire the abundant volcanic pinnacles, bizarre shaped boulders, and wondrous fairy chimneys. Listen as your guide explains how natural forces eroded these formations over millennia.

Next, capture photos of mushroom-topped rock monoliths rising from the nearby vineyards in Pasabag also referred to as Monks Valley. Learn about the monks and hermits that once found solitude within these lonely cone shelters.

Move on to Avanos and mold yourself a clay souvenir during a fun pottery workshop. But first, watch close as the artisans spin a wheel of clay and carefully produce one of Turkey’s ancient crafts. Now that you’ve seen how it’s done, make your own creation.

Afterwards, head to the Göreme Open-Air Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and break for lunch (included) at a nearby restaurant. Then, visit the museum and discover its ancient frescoes covering the ceilings of rock-chiseled chapels, monasteries, and churches. Gaze at the colorful details that still remain centuries later and appreciate the effort of these long passed painters. 

Leave the museum and hop back in your coach as you journey to your hotel where your tour ends.
