We agree that you can’t get enough of it, but if you are looking for a couple of days outside of Istanbul, then this 2 days Cappadocia tour package might be the best option. Easily connected with direct flights throughout the day, Cappadocia is a great choice, and it will help you catch a breath with its quiet atmosphere, clean air, and noise-free environs.
Istanbul (IST) Airport
Simply a nicely blended experience! Accompanied by one of our expert guides, we will take you all the highlights plus some of the off-the-beaten visits. Staying at one of the best cave hotels with excellent service and breakfast service, you will wake up to nothing but peace.
Before or after breakfast in the morning (we will share the options to confirm the preferred time), get picked up from your hotel in Istanbul and transfer to Istanbul (IST) or Sabiha (SAW) Airport. After an hour and a 15 minutes flight, you will arrive at Kayseri (ASR) or Nevsehir (NAV) Airport. Meeting your guide upon arrival, re-plan (if desired) the itinerary over the map, sit back, relax, and enjoy these two days in Cappadocia after all the sweet rush of Istanbul.
Early in the morning, leave for the first stop Devrent (Imagination Valley) got its name from the strange rock formations called “fairy chimneys.” Unlike other fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, Devrent is instead formed more randomly, and most of the rock formations look like a silhouette.
The highlights of the day include visits to Goreme Open Air Museum, where you will see some fantastic cave churches dated back to the 10th-11th centuries and registered to UNESCO World Heritage Site List.
Since Goreme is a touristy town, there are not many “non-touristy” food options. Let us take you to one of our favorites to enjoy some of the local delicacies of Anatolian cuisine.
After lunch, head to Pasabag (Hermits’ Valley), where you can walk the lunch off wandering around the giant fairy chimneys, learn how they were formed while taking some beautiful photos. These wondrous rock formations are unique to this region, not only with the geographical process that followed very strictly but also with its historical background.
You can’t get enough of the wonders that Cappadocia has to offer, but there is a lot more to see. A quick ride will take you another fantastic experience, this time, a hands-on one. Avanos, known for its pottery art since Hittites, is one of the most beautiful towns in the region, and literally, it is the first settlement of the human being. The longest river of Turkey, the Red River, passing through the town, gave the locals the chance to collect the beautiful terra-cotta soil and make their pottery since the early centuries. While it had been the leading economic source of the town, today, it remains a touristy visit at many workshops, but again, we have some of the best on the list.
Time to check-in to your hotel and enjoy the time for sunset from your hotel lounge or terrace with a delicate glass of Cappadocian wine.
We will be recommending restaurants for dinner at walking distance or with private transportation, which can also be combined with an impressive performance of Whirling Dervishes at a historical caravanserai.
Cappadocia is one of the best places in the world for enjoying a hot-air balloon ride, and with its unique landscape, it adds all the extra value to the activity. We do highly recommend to include this activity in your package as well.
Getting transferred back to your hotel, enjoy an excellent Turkish breakfast and then after check-out of the hotel, enjoy your first visit to one of the underground cities, ranging from 4 to 6 floors; those early civilizations benefited as shelters and storage purposes.
The rest of the day includes photo stops for Uchisar Castle and Goreme before another local lunch and get transferred to the airport for your flight back to Istanbul. Upon arrival, get welcomed at the airport and private transfer to your hotel.
Meals: B, L
We do prefer to book domestic air tickets to plan these two days perfectly, but if you would like to book your own tickets, we are happy to guide you with the flight codes and alternative flight times as well.
All our itineraries are created to serve the most requested routes, and they are all flexible. You can ask for pre/post tours, accommodation, and any other travel services to make the planning even better. So, if you would like to visit Cappadocia daily or extend this package to 3 days, it is all doable.
If you are arriving from other locations by bus or a rental car, we will then customize the tour accordingly and revise the rate. Click here to learn how to get to Cappadocia from Istanbul.
If you are catching a tight connection, an international flight, or you need to rush back to the cruise port, it is better to check the timings of the hot-air balloon ride activity before booking. The earliest flight, at no risk, would be leaving at around 10:00. However, this will vary depending on the season, weather conditions, etc. So, it is best to check while booking.
We booked flights, accommodation, hot air balloon and a guided day tour with Made In Turkey Tours. We had an amazing time, perfect balloon ride, great accommodation with gorgeous view and amazing restaurant. The breakfast was superb. Our guide was really knowledgeable and took us to a nice local restaurant for lunch and afterwards to this gorgeous pottery place. We even booked last minute ATV two hour ride for the family which was so much fun. We were very happy with everything we booked with Ismail at Made In Turkey Tours. They are an excellent company to deal with.
We did a 4 day/3 night trip, 2 days in Cappadocia, 2 days in Antalya. The 2 guides were both kind and knowledgeable. They were very accommodating to listening to us in case we wanted to adjust any aspect of the itinerary. We stayed in 2 wonderful hotels, both with great breakfasts. The lunches were equally as lavish. In the evening we were on our own to explore the cities ourselves, and great restaurants were recommended. Transportation was easy – the drivers were waiting for us at the airports and with us for the duration of our tours in each city. I would definitely recommend Made in Turkey Tours to anyone!
Ismail from Made in Turkey Tours arranged for two full days of tours in Cappadocia as well as a hot air balloon ride.
From the hotel to airport transfer in Istanbul to the return trip to our hotel in Istnabul, everything went off smoothly with no delays and no hiccups.
The hot air balloon was fantastic.
Our private tour guide, Eda, was awesome. She knew a lot and was friendly and easy to chat with.
Our driver, Tahsin, was also friendly and sweet and always had a smile for us.
Highly recommend Made in Turkey Tours.
The service was amazing from the moment you contact them thru email to the moment they pick you up at the airport. As we were planning our trip in USA contacting someone thru internet might feel strange Ismael made us feel safe and friends had already used his services. The word to describe Ismael and his team is flawless, every detail is plan to perfection and in order to accommodate your dreams and desires. The team with Eran were at the airport to us to our first adventure then lunch and the to the second aventure. We had arranged to ride four tracks that afternoon they left us at the location took our bags to the hotel and made sure they were place in our rooms prior to our arrival. Then arrange a driver to take us to the hotel. Ismael scheduled the balloon trip which was amazing and we were able to see the sunrise a premium service. The bus use to transport us was new and super clean our only regret was not using his services in Istanbul. Thanks to Ismael and Eran if you read this rennet to ask for Eran as your tour guide.
We had an amazing time with Made in Turkey Tours! Their office, tour guides and drivers were all professional, punctual and reliable. We visited Cappadocia, Ephesus and Pamukkale and would highly recommend this tour agent to anyone who would like to visit Turkey.
