We spent two days touring this area. It included the Cave Dwellings, Fairy Chimneys and Underground Cities. Every one of these attractions is unique and breathtaking. It is truly a photographer's dream. To enjoy all these attractions, you have to be ready to walk and climb mostly gentle hills. We (a gorup of about 12 people) were very fortunate to... More

Very unique place! There are many sights, including the Fairy Chimneys, monasteries, underground cities, and we even stayed in a cave hotel. All caves, all the time! Amazing how the people lived here, raised pigeons (which are still there) and collected the guano for fertilizer through small openings on the cliffsides, farmed, created incredible paintings to decorate the walls of...

The tour guides are well educated and make the history of the area come alive. They are very friendly and accommodating to young children especially in this area where there is quite a bit of walking. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and imagine having to live in caves.

The cave dwellings look great from a distance as you approach Cappadoccia and are fascinating and beautiful to experience too.

If you go to Turkey, go to Cappadocia and stay in a cave hotel. A great experience. See the cave dwellings in person--most interesting. Met some people living in caves. One showed us his acocmodations. Very interesting.

Helps make history come alive. Gives one a new perspective on things only heard about before. The artwork that has been preserved - actually everything that has been preserved is astounding.

That morning we had floated at 6000 feet in our hot air balloon over the Göreme Valley. The family we visited shared their tea and hospitality with us in one of the last remaining "Dome homes" (23 families still live in them). No indoor plumbing, but they had cable TV and WI-FI. Through our interpreter we learned all about the... More

Every stop produced completely different wonders! The rock formations and caves were amazingly unique in every area. It was difficult to take one photo that would in any describe Kapadokya
