Owner description: Welcome to Middle Earth Travel... We are the trekking, hiking, walking, climbing outdoors and archeology guides of Turkey. We are based in Cappadocia, a very special region which resembles a magical fairy tale land. The remains of the millions years ago volcanic eruptions, shaped by the wind and rain for thousands of years, have formed one of natures most spectacular masterpieces: Strange rock formations, called: "fairy chimneys". Beautifully coloured valleys full of these 'fairy houses' have been a fantastic stage for some of the most important actors of known history, some of which are the Hittites, The Persians, Alexander the Great, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans. Many of these caves are still decorated with icons and wall paintings from the early Christian times.

Tuna was our guide for both day tours and was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and a true gentleman. He really seemed to care about our well being and to ensure that we were comfortable at various stages of the hikes. We saw many reviews on the Ilhara Valley Tour but also decided to take the Top of Cappadocia Tour because my... More

We spent two days hiking in Cappadocia before heading to the Lycian Way. Tuna, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made sure that we had full days packed with lots of interesting sights and information. Tuna made sure that we experienced the real Turkey as we would never see on our own. My trip to Turkey with Middle Earth couldn't... More

Just about able to feel my legs again after 48 hours off the bike following a not overly challenging holiday for the rest of group, except me! I'm grateful for your patience Jon (and everybody else) .... we had a fun holiday with lots to see, do and experience with great company.

We signed up for a full-day mountain biking tour with middle earth. While we are proficient road bikers at home in the US, we had never ridden mountain bikes before. Hami, our guide, was so helpful, teaching us how to manage the bikes and adjusting the tour to our skill level. We saw so much, had a wonderful lunch and... More

I just finished the one week advanced mountain biking tour of cappadocia led by our guide Jon Bawn. It was an amazing week full of challenges. We cycled through some of the most breath-taking landscapes I've ever seen. I finished each day exhausted, having pushed myself, yet so happy, full of endorphins and satisfied. Jon is a fantastic guide, he... More

If you are into mountain biking and going to Turkey, then this tour NEEDS to be on your list. It is a brilliant mountain biking trip. As an average rider of dubious fitness I found it very challenging. However, our guide, Jon, was a very good teacher with endless patience and a good sense of humour. We had 7 riders... More

Just completed a 6 day tour of the Cappadocia region of Turkey with guide Jon Bawn. Jon has incredible local knowledge, and is well known throughout the area. Everything about this tour was great - the hotels, food, planning and of course the biking. I had such a great time that I extended my stay here to bike more. Highly... More

I did a solo guided walking tour of the Ihlara Valley. I will forever be grateful to my guide Tuna because I had chosen a different walking tour and he suggested the Ihlara valley. The landscape is awe inspiring. I tried to capture it on camera as best as I could but i could not really capture its beauty. You... More
