Overview

See all of the highlights of Cappadocia comfortably during this two-day tour departing from Istanbul. Don’t risk running out of time to see all of the region’s unique natural heritage; instead, make sure you get to experience all of Cappadocia’s surreal landscapes, its cave churches, and the underground city.
  • Transport, tour guides and accommodation are all pre-arranged for you
  • Spend less time waiting in lines, and more time exploring Cappadocia
  • Breathe easy: get around comfortably in a non-smoking vehicle

A lot of walking.

Cappadocia is usually a place that host the hot air balloon festival. On the day I went however it was too windy and the balloon tour was cancelled. We did do a tour of the caves of Cappadocia and the first churches dating back centuries. It was a lot of walking and a few unnecessary tourist stops but overall it was great. It is a full day.

Dear Sacha Thank you so much for take your time to post your review. As you know, the weather conditions are not under control of people or tour operator. And your hot air balloon ride cancelled because of the poor weather conditions. That is definetly about the safety measures. If balloons fly with bad weather conditions, There is a so big risk about the accidents. Also, if you remember, we have already fully refunded you the balloon ride cost instantly after this tour cancelled by civil authorities. Thank you again for take your time to review your Cappadocia experiences. Kind Regards

Well worth it!

The only one suggestion for Viator I would make is to use a mid-morning flight from Istanbul to Kayseri instead of early morning. It makes it very challenging to be up that early (4 a.m.) and have a full day of sightseeing. Other than that the tour was extremely well organized; everyone showed up on time and all my questions were promptly and clearly answered, the program to see many different places of interest was well balanced; overnight stay at a good hotel, not in town though, but perfect for a taste of a cave-style room; lunches and breakfast included in the tour were excellent. Great experience overall, definitely recommend it!

One of the most memorable parts was the ballon flight, of course. It was just fantastic to have such a wonderful view over Cappadocia. I also met beautiful people on this trip and we experienced so many various things in Cappadocia.

My friend and I had excellent time. The tour service was great and prompt. Our airport shuttle was late, however, the tour office made an arrangement to pick us up and connect the cappadocia day tours. I’m very pleased with the service.

Very upset

Unfortunately was really bad experience. We bought a Cappadocia dream tour, two days with Hot air balloon ride. There were some nice moments of course, but many more terrible issues. On the Ballon trip day, they picked us up from the Hotel around 4 am, then 1 hour later brought us back to the hotel and didn't explain why. Actually the driver couldn’t speak English and we didn’t know what was going on, later we found out that they cancelled the balloon ride because of the wind. There were two lunches included, the second day one was totally waste of money and time. Also, when we arrived in Istambul from Cappadocia there was no one else waiting for us, after called the agency few times we found the guy but was quite difficult because he didn’t have any paper showing our names . The guides were brilliant, but to be honest for the price paid it’s ridiculous bad. I'll never recomend it.

Dear Guest, As you know, Hot air ballooning is a fully weather-dependent activity and the Civil Aviation Authority determines whether the flight will be held. Sometimes, Civil Aviation Authority cancel the balloon rides just before from flight time if weather conditions changed on last minute. That's why, you returned to hotel while driving to balloon ride area. The drivers can not inform you about any details. Because, drivers are not managing your travel services. The team of our company and guides are managing your all services. Drivers can not know what will happen on your travel. Because of that, we gives the emergency contact numbers to all our guests for contact us 24/7 if there are any emergency contact needs. Also, our company sent you information messages about this cancellation on 08.00am-08.30am. And refunded the cost of balloon ride in same day. About the airport return transfer : If you remember we gave you information about the meeting point / gate and you were waited us at wrong point / gate. That's why, we lived a meeting problem in Istanbul airport. About the lunch at second day : We noted that, and we will check again our partner for better lunch options. Kind Regards

Amazing!!

The most organized and thorough trip I’ve gone on. We managed to squeeze this trip in between our Istanbul and Antalya trip and we’re so glad we did! We had Mustafa as our tour guide for both days who was amazing. From start to finish we were taken care of. Was constantly updated regarding the hot air balloon ride which was amazing!!! Definitely recommend this! Only thing I must note is that the hot air balloon rides are so unpredictable, the get cancelled left and right, we’re lucky that we were able to go on it because it was closed for a whole week before we came.

NYE time in Cappadocia

Tours were really great, guides were knowledgeable and answered all questions. Disappointed about the air balloon being cancelled. It was said due to weather but their were rumors it was to avoid NYE people which was the whole reason I went and felt a little annoyed and would have rethought the trip if I knew it wasn’t an option
