Your chance to visit a phase of ancient history and walk in the footsteps of the ancients is here in the Yellow tour of Cappadocia, and with an English speaking, professional guide with you throughout the day, you need not miss a thing. The yellow tour does just it what it says, taking you through the ochre and yellow rocks of the valleys with their own distinctive features. The landscape can appear so alien you may be forgiven for thinking it looks like another planet. In fact it takes you back to the initial spread of Christianity with its churches and monasteries.
Included in your tour is a visit to Goreme with its fairy tale chimneys and unusual rock formations it has earned its UNESCO World Heritage Site acclaim. This tour usually culminates in a visit to the underground city of Kaymaklı. The unforgettable city carved from what once must have been soft volcanic rock, proving to be 8 floors of subterranean safe housing for the early people of this time. Prepare to be amazed as you are able to discover 4 of these floors today, with their tunnelled streets, stables and churches. Kaymaklı became a self contained community.

With unforgettable images throughout the day you really must bring a camera with you. The amazing Pigeon Valley, home to hundreds of thousands of pigeons nesting in the rocks. Legend says that the local people carved out the nests in order to gather the droppings for crop fertiliser.
