Göreme (Goreme) Tours

star-4.5
163 Reviews
Göreme (Goreme)
This unique town, located in the heart of Turkey, is an excellent jumping off point to some of Cappadocia’s most fantastic attractions. From the fairy chimneys in Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia to the incredible cave churches at the Göreme Open-Air Museum, this region offers a variety of stunning sights.

The Basics
The otherworldly rock formations at the Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia UNESCO World Heritage Site were formed by centuries of wind and water erosion. The malleable rock was also transformed into living spaces, monasteries, churches, and tombs, some of which date back to the Middle Ages. The best examples of these structures are at the Göreme Open-Air Museum, where ancient churches were carved out of the cliffs by Byzantine settlers.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The town of Göreme itself is located in the center of the national park.
  • Some of the cave dwellings in the city have been transformed into hotels.
  • Since this area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it attracts lots of tourists, especially in the summer.
  • You will need to do a lot of walking to see the sights; make sure to wear comfortable shoes.

How to Get There
The easiest way to get to Göreme from Istanbul is by flying to Nevşehir, which is about a 25-minute drive from Göreme, or to Kayseri, which is about an hour away. You can rent cars at either city’s airports.  Alternatively, consider booking a driver or a guided tour for hassle-free travel.

When to Get There
For the best weather, visit Göreme in the spring (April–May) or early fall (September–October). If you choose to go during summer, which is peak season, visit the main attractions early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the midday heat and the crowds. 

Göreme Open-Air Museum
Located just a short, 15-minute walk from the town of Göreme, this park-like museum protects an area that was an important monastic site during the Middle Ages and includes some ruins that date back to the 4th century. The insides of the churches, which were carved into the hillsides, are covered in vibrant frescoes. Highlights include the oldest church, Tokali Kilise (Buckle Church), and the best-preserved, Karanlik Kilise (Dark Church).

One Hour Deluxe Hot Air Balloon Tour(Goreme Valley)

One Hour Deluxe Hot Air Balloon Tour(Goreme Valley)

star-4.5
Hot Air Balloon Tours are one of the most popular activities in Cappadocia. Typically lifting off at sunrise, these rides last about an hour in the air and literally go wherever the wind may blow in the Goreme Valley. If you ever plan on getting into a hot air balloon someday, here’s a suggestion for you: do it in Cappadocia. Several dozen balloons go up each day, even in the winter, so people can see the incredible landscape from the air. To fully explore the region on foot would take months. There are many valleys as well as separate towns and outdoor attractions. Indeed, the best way to see Cappadocia is from the air. The balloon travels in existing air streams so there is no motion and at times, it is possible to forget that your feet are firmly off the ground

Cappadocia Dream - 2 Days Cappadocia Travel with Balloon Ride from/to Istanbul

star-5
Although many cross-country tours in Turkey only allocate a day to Cappadocia’s preternatural landscape and innovative architecture, most travelers find that a two-day tour strikes the right balance between seeing the region’s highlights and sacrificing time elsewhere in the country. See all of the highlights of Cappadocia comfortably during this two-day tour departing from Istanbul. Don’t risk running out of time to see all of the region’s unique natural heritage; instead, make sure you get to experience all of Cappadocia’s surreal landscapes, its cave churches, and the underground city.
