My girlfriend and I climbed a hill down the road from the open air museum (next to the big parking lot where one of the balloon companies was meeting, a horse ranch, and a pottery shop) at around 6 am to watch the balloons float over the horizon. There were dozens, maybe a hundred of them, and after they floated... More

Fantastic, magical place! A must see in Turkey! The Open Air Museum and wandering in the valleys around Goreme were really interesting.

Flying up high at 1000 meter in the hot air balloon, overlooking the spectacular, magnificent and breathtaking natural landscape of Cappadocia, it was a wonder how the ancient volcano eruptions, geological changes and erosion of rocks had formed this place into a fairy-tale "rocky" wonderland. Aside from nature, the incredible work of human had also made a transformation when the... More

The landscape is truly unique and fascinating. We had wanted to visit this area for many years and it was even better than we had hoped for. A balloon ride is a must.

We spent our first day in Goreme just wandering through the beauty outside the town of Goreme. It was truly breathtaking. I would highly recommend at least giving a half day at the least to exploring. The sites were amazing. My only wish was that we had more time to explore. We also went the portion where you did have... More

Maybe my expectations were too high but while this place was very cool, I'm not too into how it is a museum of sorts - meaning there are paved paths everywhere. The sites inside were cool but not particularly more so than many other sites in Cappadocia. There are lots of churches to see, my favorite was the Dark Church... More

Really enjoyed Goreme. A must if you visit Cappadocia. The caves and paintings are really worth seeing and not to be missed. It can be crowded--more than we would have thought in March.
