Each fairy chimney is several times the length of human height.

Photographing from a point overlooking the area a little overhead can make a beautiful view immortal.
  2. Rose Valley: About 5 kilometers from the Red Valley, a perfect valley will be waiting for you. Rose Valley fascinates people who visit Cappadocia with its many features.

    Ho prenotato il tour di tre giorni da Istanbul per la Cappadocia e Pamukkale presso l’Ufficio di Istanbul di ToursCE Travel. Leyla ed il suo collaboratore sono stati veramente molto disponibili e professionali ed hanno fornito tutti i dettagli del tour. Il tour è stato meraviglioso, come da aspettativa. L’unico appunto che può farsi è rappresentato dal fatto che con le guide (peraltro ottime) sia in Cappadocia che a Pamukkale sono state effettuate delle soste in negozi (pietre, tappeti, pelle, gioielli, vasi) che hanno tolto tempo al tour e che potevano essere evitate o quantomeno limitate nel numero.

  2. Carmen

    I recently took a 3-day tour package that included Cappadocia and Pamukkale and it was an incredible experience. The tour was expertly planned and provided a great balance of exploring the unique landscapes and historical sites of both regions.
    The first day of the tour was spent in Cappadocia, exploring the fairy chimneys, rock formations, and ancient cave dwellings. The highlight of the day was definitely the hot air balloon ride at sunrise. Seeing the landscape from above was truly magical, and the pilot and staff were professional and made us feel safe throughout the flight.
    We also visited the Zelve Open Air Museum, the underground city of Ozkonak, and the valley of Love. All of these sites were incredibly interesting and our guide provided a wealth of information about the history and significance of each one.
    We traveled to Pamukkale, famous for its white terraces formed by mineral-rich thermal waters. The highlight of the day was definitely the visit to the Hierapolis ancient city, an ancient Roman spa city, built on top of the hot springs. The ruins were well-preserved and our guide provided a great understanding of the history of the site.
    We also visited the Cleopatra Pool, a thermal pool that was used by the ancient Romans and it was a great opportunity to relax in the warm waters and enjoy the stunning views.
    The tour company also provided great accommodation and transportation, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, making the tour enjoyable and informative.
    Overall, I would highly recommend this 3-day tour package to anyone looking to explore the best of Cappadocia and Pamukkale. The tour provided a great balance of history and culture, as well as natural beauty and relaxation.
