3 Days Cappadocia Tour from Istanbul
Through the reservation form, you will choose your preferred means of travel from Istanbul to Cappadocia and back. If you choose the bus, you will have to travel the night before while you will take an early morning flight if you choose the plane.
On your first day in Cappadocia, you will visit the Devrent Valley which is famous for its stunning fairy chimneys. These chimneys are as a result of geological processes that began many centuries ago. The chimneys form a lunar landscape that you will definitely want to see and take a photo for purposes of memories. On this valley, you will also see natural sculptures that have a close resemblance to animals.
You will also visit the amazing Paşabağ (Monks’) Valley and practice pottery making with the ancient skills in Avanos. Later in the day, you will visit Göreme open air museum which happens to be one of Turkey’s UNESCO World Heritage sites.
