Today, day 1, you will meet our representative at the pier for your transfer to Istanbul Airport to take your domestic flight to Kayseri. Meeting your private lecturer/guide at the Kayseri Airport, you will be boarding your luxury minivan, and drive forty minutes to reach the very heart of the most fascinating region of Turkey. Cappadocia will thrill you with its unique landscapes formed by erosions of winds and water. Today’s inactive volcanoes of Erciyes and Hasan used to be active thousands of years ago, and had erupted continuously covering the region with a blanket of tuff that gets eroded so easily due to its soft character. Arriving Cappadocia, you will be enjoying the view of the rock-carved natural citadel of Uchisar for a superb view of the region. Later, you will walk through the valleys of Zelve that was a town composed of hundreds of rock-carved houses occupied until 1942. At the end of your tour, you will be transferred to your rock-carved hotel. Overnight in Cappadocia.

Day 2, you will be picked up from your hotel at 9:00. Located in the very center of Turkey, Cappadocia was occupied by various civilizations including Hittites, Greeks, Romans, and Turks who lived in rock dwellings until today. You will get to enjoy an unforgettable memory of Cappadocia: Hot air ballooning over the nature-formed valleys. You will head on to Kaymakli Underground City, a subterranean settlement composed of troglodytic cave dwellings, where early Christians lived protecting themselves from invaders. Your day will continue with your visit to the Monastic Center of Goreme. Goreme was one of the earliest centers of monastic life and was founded by St. Basil as the first Monastic Center of Christianity during 4th century. Continue your day visiting Ortahisar from where you can have photography opportunities of gorgeous valleys. Stopping at the Three Beauties, the conic rock formations that locals have created many legends about; enjoy taking pictures of the fairy chimneys and valleys with rustic colors.
