Depending on the option selected, enjoy either a worry-free transfer from Kayseri Airport or a hotel pickup in the greater Cappadocia area for your 3-day Cappadocia tour. Then, travel by air-conditioned coach to your cave hotel for check-in. After dropping off your bags, continue to stunning Dervent Valley Area and hop out to view the impressive landscape in Pasabag (Monk’s Valley).

Next, head to Avanos, a village famous for its pottery making and stop for lunch. Continue to Pigeon Valley and learn how pigeons were bred in caves for so their droppings could be used as fertilizer. Afterwards, drive to Göreme Open-Air Museum and see the collection of rock-carved churches and chapels that are prime examples of Cappadocia’s Byzantine history. 

Day 2: Cappadocia (B, D)

If you optioned for the hot air balloon flight over Cappadocia’s landscape get ready for a sunrise to remember. Bright and early, enjoy a short ride to the hot air balloon office for a tasty buffet breakfast. Explore different vantage points of Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys and fascinating rock formations that were weathered by natural forces over millennia. After snapping your last photo, gracefully land and enjoy a glass of Champagne. Then head back to your hotel to meet the rest of your group.

If you decided to pass on the balloon flight, enjoy a tranquil morning at your hotel. In the late morning, everyone will meet up and continue to Rose Valley for a leisurely hike. Along your walk, see red-hued rocks expand over a striking reach of land. Watch as your guide points out the abundance of tunnels and churches chiseled into the walls of rock. End the walk at Çavuşin and stop at the cave mosque. Then, enjoy free time to explore more and stop for lunch (own expense). 

Rendezvous with your coach and journey to Kaymakli Underground City, Cappadocia’s most well-maintained subsurface attractions. Then, experience what life was like for early Christians who hid here from persecution. Hop back on your coach and head to Ortahisar home of the huge monolithic Ortahisar Castle. Explore the craggy homes lining the streets and grab photos of the massive fortification that rises high above the village. Journey past Pigeon Valley back to your hotel for dinner and, if time allows, take a slight detour for a wine-tasting at a local cellar.

Day 3: Cappadocia – Kayseri (B)

After a nice breakfast at your cave hotel end your 3-day trip with a ride back to Kayseri Airport or if you are staying longer your preferred Cappadocia accommodation.
Itinerary
Cappadocia Cave Dwellings
Start your 3-day tour with an airport transfer from Kayseri Airport to your Cappadocia hotel.

Once you've checked in, head out by minibus for a tour of the incredible Dervent Valley area. Admire the landscape and stop in Pasabag (Monk’s Valley) to walk through the area’s cone-like rocks where monks and hermits once lived in isolated seclusion.

MIGHT BE CHANGED WITH OZKONAK. NO HIKING INCLUDED. Upgrade to start your day in style with a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia! It’s an early start from your hotel, but once at the hot air balloon office, a buffet breakfast awaits. Tuck in and then take to the skies on a 1-hour flight! Cappadocia’s volcanic origins have left some truly captivating sights, with fairy chimneys punctuating the rocky landscape that you’ll see below you. Finish with a glass of Champagne and then return to your hotel. If you choose not to take the balloon ride, then spend the early morning at leisure. Both groups meet up in the late morning for your hike through Rose Valley – a beautiful stretch of land that takes its name from the red-hued rock that abounds throughout it. Straddling the villages of Göreme and Çavuşin, the valley is peppered with rock-carved churches and tunnels, and your guide will point out the best ones on your hike. Finish up in Çavuşin, and after visiting its cave mosque, enjoy some free time for lunch (own expense). Hop aboard your minibus and continue your day’s tour to Kaymakli Underground City, one of Cappadocia’s best-preserved subterranean sites. Explore its maze of passages, seeing underground stable and cellars while learning about the early Christians who once hid here to escape persecution. Return to your coach and travel to Ortahisar for a stroll, admiring its stone houses that surround its crowing rocky glory -- Ortahisar Castle. Stop for photos by this unique fortress and then continue by minibus through Pigeon Valley. If time permits then stop at a wine cellar for a wine-tasting session, and then return to your hotel in time for dinner.

This tour is a scam! It is listed as a 3 DAY tour but is actually a 2 days tour with a transfer to the airport on the third day. Moreover, for the first two days of the tour, instead of spending as much time as possible visiting the fabulous sites of Cappadocia, we spent far too much time visiting some ceramic and carpets workshops that sold hugely overpriced ceramics and carpets. For the third day, I was practically abandoned by the tour operator in my hotel and had to rent a taxi in order to visit the many attractions that were omitted during the first two days.
