Fully narrated tour
The tour will start with the visit of small town of Goreme, situated at the centre of the Valley of Fairy Chimneys and surrounded by the eerie shapes and fantastic rock formations that have made the region famous. Its one of the few remaining villages where fairy chimneys and rock-hewn houses are still inhabited and several pensions, restaurants and cafes are carved into the rock. After here, continue to Kaymakli Underground City, built under the hill known as the Citadel of Kaymakli and was opened to visitors in 1964. The people of Kaymakli (Enegup in Greek) village have constructed their houses around nearly one hundred tunnels of the underground city. The inhabitants of the region still use the most convenient places in the tunnels as cellars, storage areas and stables, which they access through their courtyards. From here continue to the town of Avanos, set on the banks of Kizilirmak, the Red River. The Kizilirmak (red) river (ancient Halys river) is the longest river in Turkey and does not only separate the town from other parts of Cappadocia, it also supplies the red clay for its famous pottery. Pottery has been produced in the Avanos area for centuries and some of the techniques still used date back to 2000 BC. The town is a mass of family run potteries all making wonderful and original souvenirs to take home, from mugs to ornate plates and chess sets.
