Private 'Green' Tour

Return

This private Green Tour essentially follows the same itinerary as the standard group Green Tour, but this option offers you and your group the privacy of your own vehicle and the flexibility to change the itinerary to suit.
 
Itinerary:
  • Pickup from your hotel at an agreed time (we recommend no later than 10.00am).
  • First stop is Göreme Panorama viewpoint where you will be astounded by one of the best views in the region.  The guide will explain just how this amazing landscape came into existence.
  • Derinkuyu Underground City is the biggest and deepest underground settlement, dating back to 7th-8th centuries. Walk down 8 levels which are each interconnected by narrow tunnels and stone-carved stairways. See the winery, church, kitchens, food storage areas and animal stalls while your guide gives you an insight into their daily life.
  • Selime Cathedral is the biggest rock-carved monastery in the region and was once home to Hittite, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman civilizations.
  • Enjoy a Turkish kebab-style lunch at a riverside restaurant in Ihlara Valley.
  • After lunch, take an easy 4km walk (approx. 1 hour) along the river through the deep Ihlara Valley canyon, scattered with cave churches carved by early Christian monks. 
  • A final stop at a stunning viewpoint in Uçhisar overlooking the infamous Pigeon Valley and see the pigeon houses carved from the stone by ancient inhabitants.
  • Return to your hotel approx 17.30-18.00pm.
