What You Can Expect

Cappadocia Classics: Private Guided Tour with Van

Kaymakli Underground City

Meet your guide at your hotel for a full day of exploring Cappadocia’s most iconic sites. Learn about local culture and history as you travel to Kaymakli Underground City, and go deep below ground into a maze of earthen tunnels and rooms. See where the ancient inhabitants shaped the stone to store food, make wine and olive oil, and worship. Leave the underground network behind as you travel to the highest point in Cappadocia, where Uçhisar Castle commands unobstructed views of the valley below, and Mount Erciyes in the far distance. Don’t look for throne rooms and parapets here—this “castle” is a volcanic stone outcropping that generations of Cappadocians shaped into a maze of tombs, cisterns and rooms.

Explore exquisite chapels, silent churches and hollow monasteries carved directly into the stone at Göreme Open Air Museum, the legacy of Byzantine monks whose frescoes bring biblical scenes to life in warm ochre and natural paints. Pause for lunch in the city of Avanos, where cobblestone streets run to the edge of the Kizilirmak River, and get inside tips from your guide on choosing a restaurant and tasting your way through local specialties.

Follow walking paths between soaring towers and surreal rocks shaped by wind, water and time in Pasabaglari, the finest concentration of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia. Enjoy views into the pink-hued Devrent Valley, and try to spot rocks that look like camels, horses and dolphins. Take in views of the landscape on the comfortable return trip to your hotel.
