Cappadocia covers a vast area for you to tour, for this reason the tours have been colour grouped to make your choice easier. The Blue tour will take you to the Southern Cappadocia valleys and the fairy chimneys! This is the region where you will also find the underground city of Kaymaklı which is also included as part of this tour. With an English speaking guide to accompany you on your tour, you will find the information entertaining and educational, giving you a wider vista of what life was like in the Goreme Valley back in the annals of time.
Red Valley is one of the best places in Turkey to watch the sunset, the rock formations appearing to be of a crimson shade, as the sun sets over the fairy chimneys. Rose Valley equally as beautiful, is favoured by hikers for its stunning scenery.
Uchisar Castle is one of the highest points in this area, with steps to climb to the top, you will have a 360 degree view of this amazing landscape. Cameras at the ready!
Similarly, Ortahisar Castle restored in a similar way, is made accessible by a stone staircase that will take you to the top and the astounding panoramic views thereon.
The final stop of your tour will be Kaymakli Underground City. Prepare to be amazed at this ancient feat of humanity. Reaching down eight levels, this underground city served for daily life, unbelievable considering even the livestock were contained underground. Connected by a series of tunnels you will be able to see stalls and stables where the animals were housed, wineries and kitchens, food halls and churches, to mention but a few. You are currently only able to access four of these floors, but nonetheless, it is incomprehensible as to why human beings chose to live this far underground.
