Underground City and Ihlara Valley Group Tour With Lunch

5 / 5 total 22 reviews
Duration: 8 to 9 hours
Product code: 4888
Overview

Pick up from your hotel in Cappadocia and ends approximately 17.30 with a drop off back to your hotel.

Your tour will start with breathtaking panoramic views over Goreme. Listen to information about the history, the formation of Cappadocia while looking at the fairy chimneys. Following the information, you will have free time for photographs.

After driving for about 40 minutes, arrive at Derinkuyu Underground City. The late Romans used this underground city as a shelter against potential invasions. Derinkuyu is the largest underground city in the Cappadocia region.

Next, we will drive to Ihlara Canyon. After 45 minutes we will arrive at the entrance of Ihlara Valt. Ihlara Valley was formed by the volcanic eruptions of Mt. Hasan, next to Ihlara Valley. Over the years Melendiz River eroded the Valley, which meant the layers cracked and eventually, an 80-meter deep canyon was composed. We will hike roughly 3km, which should take about an hour.

We will then arrive at the restaurant for lunch with views over the Valley. A set menu of soup and salad, choose one of the main dishes from the list and dessert of seasonal fruits. After lunch, we will take you to Yaprakhisar. You will see the most beautiful examples of fairy chimneys.

Our tour will continue to Selime Monastery. Hear stories about the monastic life in Cappadocia. We will stop for a short rest your guide will mention about some traditions, cultures and stories about Anatolia on the way.

We will then arrive at Pigeon Valley. Pigeons have always been a crucial element for the Cappadocian people. Their eggs and droppings are used for different purposes. The local people even carved houses for them into the slopes of the Valley.

I had an excellent experience with our guide. Everything was well organized with the coordinator confirming pick up time on Whatsapp one day before. I really enjoyed the underground city tour and trekking in Ihlara Valley. The guide introduced all the places well and shared many stories. Strongly recommend anyone who is looking for a full day tour in Cappadocia!

A very good guide who gave us enough time to take photos and always consider those who walked too slow by waiting. A breath taking view trekking and not forgetting the good lunch along with the running steam. I fully recommend this tour.

It was a wonderful experience. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the places we were visiting. He shared lots of Turkish culture details with the group. The underground city was incredible. The trek at the Ihlara Valley was picturesque and not difficult at all. Got decent vegetarian food at the restaurant. In all a must-do.
