Beautiful Cappadocia

Side Cappadocia 2-Day Trip
Cappadocia means "land of beautiful horses" in Persian. It is mainly located in Nevşehir province in Central Anatolia. Mountains such as Erciyes,Hasan Dağı and Göllüdağ were active volcanoes ten million years ago, and their eruptions caused the region to be filled with lava and volcanic ash. After these volcanic mountains became extinct over time, erosion, rivers and wind created this spectaculat terrain. There are now innumerable cones and towers of soft volcanoe rocks (fairy chimneys) in the region. As the region has a rugged terrain, it provided a natural shelter for early Christians seeking a place away from Roman oppression. They built not only underground cities but also houses and churches into the fairy chimneys in the region. After the conversion of Roman Empire to Christianity, Cappadocia became an area for monastic life for faithful Christians until the Middle Ages. On this tour, you will see spectacular landscapes and structures that those early Christians built thousands of years ago.

    My niece and nephew and I had a great time on our tour. It is nice to relax on your bus and leave the driving to your excellent driver. We could just enjoy the scenery or get some sleep. There is too much to see in a two-day tour of Cappadocia, so it is nice to have a well-planned tour and an excellent tour guide. Our guide spoke Turkish, English, German, and Russian, and had an outstanding knowledge of Cappadocia and the sites we visited. It is a wonderful history lesson in a most unusual and interesting part of Turkey, and the world. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour!

    Excellent trip on a week-end to Cappadocia for a really good price and with a nice guide who could speak English fluently. Thank you for all.
