If you are into old churches, I would recommend visiting the Open Air Museum (the Dark Church is one of a kind!). Unfortunately it all seems a bit too overpriced! Especially because one can visit many cave dwellings just outside of the museum, for free!

We visited Goreme National Park as part of a tour however you can go there on your own. The place is unique - both for its historic and cultural value and for the stunning panorama that you get - you never seem to get enough of it. A guide is suggested if you're really into the history of the place.

It is difficult to describe the wow factor of this whole area, it is outstanding, the fairy chimneys, the tombs, the underground cities & the walking, not to mention the sunsets :-)

There is not much to dislike about a place with some of the most unusual shaped scenery i the world. The fairy chimneys, volcano, balloon rides and scenery, definitely places this area in the top list of must see places of the world.

Did Goreme Valley as part of an Insight Bus Tour. While initially interesting apart from rooms in rocks, some with fading fresco pictures it's hard to maintain interest after the first impressions. The history is interesting but a guided tour is essential to get the most out of it. You can't take pictures inside any of the rooms, churches but... More

Wonderful sight to see churches, chimneys and cave dwellings in a compact area before exploring the rest of Cappadocia. We did it in less than an hour and included the Dark Church and the one across the street from the entrance.

The area around Goreme, really all of Cappadocia, is an amazing place. It is a fantastic mix of fascinating geology and ancient human habitation. Truly a unique spot and a must see if you are in Turkey. For picts and travel advice of this area you can visit our site at www.lesismotravels.com.

The landscape is extraordinary and beautiful. The whole family (also the youngest , 9 years of age) enjoyed our 2½ hours trekking there. Bring plenty of water with you!
