“Ephemeral beauty of Cappadocia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

It is hard to find a better place for 1 day walking tour for all kinds of ages and groups. From central village Goreme you can take any direction, any road and moon-like scenery will entirely absorb your attention, attract you until you find yourself in completely strange place, unfamiliar to anything you have seen before.
Take a wide angle lens, wear a comfortable walking shoes and old jeans - dirt is smeary. Central Anatolia is the place where our civilisation 12 000 years ago has started from. So it is like returning home.

“Magnificent landscapes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Amazing scenarios, fascinating people who lived there centuries ago and still live. Such a beautiful place is so memorable that pictures and words can’t describe it as it deserves.

Totally unique experience! This place is rich in humanity history and geological formations. Stay in a cave hotel for a comfortable and rustic stay at the same time, eat the tasty local food, enjoy the balloon flight and be the guest of this very hospitable people.
Don’t fool yourself and stay only in Istanbul once you are in Turkey. If you have time enough, don’t hesitate to discover this place.

Go there and you will understand why. You will have memories for life.

“Amazing. Go there and you will know why.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

There are so many view points and different things to see, just when you think you've seen them all you find something else. Great weather helped with the magnificent views and also for hot air balloon rides which you can do all over this area, but they can be quite pricey so make sure you haggle even for those! There are the usual tourist shops and things to eat and the food is actuallt very good, infact it's better than a lot of the so called 5 star hotel buffets and at a fraction of the cost. Eat where you see locals eating.
