The Basics

The otherworldly rock formations at the Göreme National Park and the Rock Sites of Cappadocia UNESCO World Heritage Site were formed by centuries of wind and water erosion. The malleable rock was also transformed into living spaces, monasteries, churches, and tombs, some of which date back to the Middle Ages. The best examples of these structures are at the Göreme Open-Air Museum, where ancient churches were carved out of the cliffs by Byzantine settlers.

Quad ATV Cappadocia 2 hours Guided Tour from Goreme
Amazing tour and tour company. I am glad I chose this one. Osman and his friends did a fantastic job and were very helpful throughout the entire tour. The final sunset destination was something beyond description. I recommend this to everyone.

Explore Cappadocia Horseback Riding at Goreme National Park
This sunset ride exceeded our expectations. We had a long ride (including a break) in the Red and Rose Valleys. Wranglers (who ran along) did a great job up recognizing who was more apprehensive as we rode along the cliffs, and making sure their horses where kept calm.

One Hour Deluxe Hot Air Balloon Tour(Goreme Valley)
The view was breathtaking. No words can describe what I saw. I felt safe. The landing was so smooth. We landed on a trailer. The pilot had great landing skill. The ground crew did an amazing job too. However, there was no breakfast and champagne. (Probably due to covid restrictions)

Full-Day Tour in Cappadocia with Goreme Open Air Museum
A fantastic group tour which became a private tour due to low numbers during the COVID-19 epidemic. Serkan was a wonderful guide, was able to run the tour at a pace which suited us and was able to answer every question we had with great knowledge. The lunch was held at their hotel rather than a buffet restaurant due to the pandemic but was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Serkan

The easiest way to get to Göreme from Istanbul is by flying to Nevşehir, which is about a 25-minute drive from Göreme, or to Kayseri, which is about an hour away. You can rent cars at either city’s airports. Alternatively, consider booking a driver or a guided tour for hassle-free travel.

When to Get There
