Your day will start with a pick up around 9:30 am to head off for the North Cappadocia Tour which is also known as Red Tour. This tour covers all the highlights in the north; it is a mix of the ancient history surrounding this area as well as getting to take in some of the best vantage points that showcase why Cappadocia is one of the famous tourist trails. We will start with Goreme Esentepe for a panoramic view over this remarkable area. We continue to next stop along the way at Pasabag - Monks Valley. The other vantage point of the day is to stop at a place called Three Beauties, the most famous natural beauty and symbol of Urgup.
Absorb yourself in the local history with a visit to the Open Air Museum, a complex of medieval painted cave churches carved out by Orthodox monks. You will get an insight into the ancient history that is so important to this area. The open-air museum has beautifully decorated ancient frescoes scattered throughout its ancient caves and dwellings. Next stop is the town of Avanos, which is famous for all its pottery. You can attend one of the workshops to see these craftsmen at work. Devrent Valley is another stop in the day. Devrent Valley is also known as Imaginary Valley; it has many animal- shaped rocks, the famous one is the camel shape rock.

You will get to see some of the most beautiful valleys in Cappadocia when visiting Rose Valley, famous for the colours of the rock formations. Pigeon Valley to see all the pigeon homes that the farmers have made over the years for the fertilization of their soil. And everyone enjoys the view over Love Valley to have a little giggle at the phallic shaped rocks that give it its name. Red Valley is also one to explore to see the many hidden paths that all lead onto the amazing sights of Cappadocia and its surrounding towns and settlements.
You will also get to visit one of the Underground Cities that are famous in Cappadocia - Kaymakli which is the widest underground city in Cappadocia region.

After spending some time exploring this marvelous underground city, it will be time to get back out and enjoy the wide open spaces of Meskendir Valley.
