“Too Many Tours Here To Really Enjoy It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

The whole park is incredible.
But, the day we went, there were way TOOOOO many tours there and there was a VERYYYYY long wait to get into each cave/area. Also, the audio guides were out. So no brochure...only the signage at each cave/area.

Be prepared for extra bright sun(sunglasses and hat a must) and stairs and a very hilly ascent. Uneven walking paths might be a challenge for some. Be careful. Bring water.

There is a cafe and nice gift shop too. The parking area is a very far distance from the park entrance(or, at least it seems that way after all the strenous walking in the park).

“A unique experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

It's hard to believe that people once lived in these caves and underground caverns. Be prepared for a lot of walking and steps, some of it in very cramped spaces, but it's worth the effort.

“Unique park , but ....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Interesting place which is a must see in Goreme . But for us it wasn't impressive as we visited the Ihlara valley the day before . Ihlara valley also had lot of churches and strange rock formations which makes Goreme park poor in comparison .

“Unique scenes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Unique place.
They should isolate some paintings and some rocks inside the cave from visitor. People climb on the tables
