We pick you up from your hotels between 09:30 and 09:45 with our guide and vehicles belonging to our company. We are starting our tour with our first stop Uchisar Kale.
Our guide transfers information about his location in the first place, and then a photo break is given around the Castle. We move to Göreme Open Air Museum. You can see rock churches, chapels built by the first Christians from outside, and an Orthodox Monastery where refugees from Roman persecution took refuge in the Göreme Open Air Museum, which is among the Unesco World Heritage Sites in 1985.
You can see amazing frescoes on the walls of churches and chapels. The frescoes have come up to date based on the corrosive effects of time. Then we move to Çavuşin Village, a historical and ancient Greek Village, and visit the ruins. Our next stop is Paşabağ (Monks Valley). This is where the three-headed fairy chimneys are most intense. Here you can get detailed information about the formation of Cappadocia from our guide.
We have lunch at a local restaurant and after dinner we move to Avanos district. This is the center of terracotta art in the Hittite Civilization in 2000s before Christ. Here you will have the chance to watch and try traditional pottery art. Pottery from the clay soils used in making the city and Turkey’s longest river, which comes from the ancient times, also known as Hallys Kizilirmak’.
We visit a store with a pottery and pottery workshop. You can watch the pottery and pottery making and also try it. Our next stop is to go to Devrent (Dream Valley). In this valley, which will enchant your dreams, you can have a fun time by imagining the visual rock shapes formed differently from the existing rock shapes.
