Our professional guide and the driver will pick you up at our office upon your arrival. Our first stop is the majestic vista point overlooking Goreme where you will receive information about the rich history of Cappadocia and the unique rock formations. From the panoramic view point, we will continue on to the biggest underground city, Kaymakli. Your guide will explain how locals carved these multi-level underground cities to hide from enemies. You can also see traces of their daily lives in the stables, wineries, temples, living quarters, air shafts, etc. Right after exploring the deepest caves of Cappadocia, we will climb to the highest ones: Uchisar Castle.
