So many areas to explore, you can easily spend much time visiting here. Each area is slightly different, so plan ahead to be sure to visit the areas you like. Good place to visit for people of all ages. Kids can enjoy the geological formations and climb around; adults can wonder and appreciate the life of the cavedwellers. Something of... More

obviously, if you're going to Turkey, you have to see Cappadocia. There are....endless caves to climb around in and explore, and the surrounding cities like Urgup are excellent places for staying, eating and cheap shopping.

Loved walking around here. Very unique place, like nothing I have ever seen. Its like stepping back into the Caveman days, sort of. Definitely one of the highlights of Turkey

All geologycal gems of Cappadocoa are close to Goreme, so just rent a car or a motorcycle and wander around this village. All the magnificent landscapes are very close, some of the most impressive ones just 2 kms NW. Do not forget to clim to the village highest peak (you can walk uphill but it is steep) where all the...

We had been to see the fairy chimneys and were surprised by how extensive this area really is. Four of the churches have wonderfully restored religious frescos. There is lots of walking, many stairs to climb and some slippery places. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes. Our guide gave lots of background that wasn't presented on the information boards by... More

I like to know that Goreme National Park prove to the Christians at present about what our brother & sister had done at the past. How hard they fight for their faith. But I feel sad because I can't buy the bible in there.

We enjoyed our one hour visit which is sufficient. The ground is uneven so have good walking shoes. Lots of stairs to climb and uphill slopes. We found the Christian churches interesting. The explanations are written in English. We rented the easy to use headsets as well.

This was the most magical place I have been to, with had a local tour guide called Harun (booked through Chora travel) and had a two day tour of north and south Cappadocia - from the fairy chimneys, open air museum, to rose valley, pigeon valley, and the underground caves of the city. I have never taken so many photographs... More

When we first saw it from the bus, we were out of words. Just amazing and unbelievable. Should be one of the wonders of the world.

In 3 days of our visit, we have visited many churches in Cappadocia, but amazed with the churches in Goreme Museum. Excellent paintings especially in the Dark Church, but little uphill. I do recommend visiting
