Feel the Magic of the Fairy Chimneys on a Southern Cappadocia Turkey Tour
You will be collected in an air-conditioned coach at your Ürgüp or Göreme hotel and then travel to experience your Group Southern Cappadocia Turkey Tour. Famous for its rock formations, fairy chimneys and ancient settlements. Your first stop will be Pigeon Valley, a beautiful gulley where thousands of pigeon houses have been built into the rocks and cliffs. Here you can take photo's of the dovecotes as you hear how centuries ago, local farmers used pigeon droppings as a crop fertiliser.
Next, we go to the Red Valley, a fantastic area of red and multicoloured rocks and cliffs. Accompanied by your guide absorb the views of the famous caves, vineyards and orchards. See into some of the hidden rock churches and learn how Christians used them through the years. Then travel on to the Kaymakli Underground City, one of the best-preserved cities on any tour Cappadocia. Explore its hand-cut rock passages and rooms as you will hear all about how the Christians used them as hideaways to escape persecution.
From here we will continue to ‘old’ Çavuşin, a deserted village which is cut into the hillside. Marvel at the desolate rock houses, caves and shelters and hear about the people who once called them home, and why they left.
After this, we will stop for lunch at a traditional local Turkish restaurant and visit Avanos, famous for its pottery and crafts.
Visit a beautiful workshop and see the potters in action and try making your pottery masterpiece! Learn about the local clay-working techniques that have been passed down through generations of potters as you watch and work. Your tour will end here, and you will be then dropped back to your hotel, having enjoyed your best Cappadocia tours.
