What To Expect

If you love hiking and trekking and also happen to find yourself planning a trip to Turkey's Cappadocia for a vacation, then this Green Tour is the one you've got to try out. Explore Cappadocia's sprawling and otherworldly landscapes by foot and drop by different historical locations as well. Kick off your tour with a convenient pick up service from your hotel, then it's off to the Derinkuyu Underground City, the biggest one in all of Turkey and the deepest found in Cappadocia. This natural wonder is carved 18 storeys deep into the ground and still stable for centuries and centuries. Then, head to Ihlara Valley, a popular area to hike around, where you can see Byzantine cave churches and other peculiar formations. The hike is about four kilometers long and will be beside the Melendiz River. Once you've exhausted yourself from the trek, have a hearty lunch at a charming restaurant overlooking the Melendiz River, a good spot to simply sightsee while getting some sustenance. After that, head to the Selime Monastery, the largest religious structure in Cappadocia, which has chambers and rooms that are connected by tunnels or winding passageways. Lose yourself in the architecture before finally going to your last stop, Pigeon Valley, a breathtaking valley situated between Göreme and Uçhisar that is ideal for a relaxing trek. Just watch out because yes, you're going to be seeing a considerable number of pigeons in the area!

    It was very convenient as the pick up and drop off is at our hotel. The guide for the tour is also very well versed in English and will explain the history of cappadocia to us. The scenery in this tour is breathtaking!
  • Thian Pah 25 Nov 2018
    Very good guide who give us anpole times to take photos and always consider those who walked too slow by waiting. A breath taking view trekking and not forgetting the good lunch along the running steam.i fully reconmend those who is looking out for tour to join this tour.
  • Shiv 21 Nov 2018
    Positives: The tour guide was very good - had lots of info to share about each place visited and gave us a history lesson on Turkey while we were taking the long van ride to the underground city. Places visited are interesting - underground city and the Ihlara Valley. Food at lunch was decent. Negatives: Took us to a Jewelry store (was not in the itinerary) on the way back to Goreme, which we could have done without. I suppose there is some sort of commission/incentive for doing this.

    The operator proactively connected with me on whatsapp. The guide was very knowledgeable and showed us all the agreed places. vegetarian lunch was decent.

    Good tour with lots of neat places. Friendly tour guide!
  • Xin Mei 21 Oct 2018
    I believe the tour is good however as the weather is unpredictable, I would suggest to book for a few days from agents that allow cancellation 24hours before. I have booked from klook (easy booking and saved time searching around) however because the weather was bad on the day I have booked, I wasn’t able to rebook for next day because it was fully booked and unfortunately it was too late for me to search for another agents because all agents were sold out. Apparently that was because most of them booked directly for three days straight so if the first day was cancelled they get the second day or the third day and they get refund if the weather was bad for all three days.

    The tour was great and very informative. Our tour guide was also very accommodating and speaks english really well. This is a must do tour in Cappadocia. Everywhere we go is so picturesque.
