In Avanos there is time for lunch as well as visiting a traditional potters’ workshop where you will see their 5,000 year old kick–wheel technique. In the afternoon we visit Goreme Open Air Museum, one of the biggest Christian monastic centers of the world all in rock cut caves with beautiful frescos and paintings, and finally a spectacular view of Uchisar rock castle and local valleys.  More Info

G2. Soganli Blue Tour

Details: Sometimes called the Blue Tour and sometimes called the Green Tour. Whatever the name, on this tour we visit Kaymakli Underground City where Cappadocians have lived and hidden themselves at times of danger for thousands of years. We then go to Soganli Valley of Churches see the different style Byzantine rock cut churches with frescos set natural countryside with table-top mountains and welcoming locals who sell their special home made dolls. We have lunch in a cave setting before vising Sobessos, the archaeological site of a newly discovered early Byzantine town with mosaics in the bath house and church. We continue to Taskinpasa Medrese (theological school) where the surviving doorway has beautiful examples of 14th century stone designs, then to Keslik Monastery the frescos are hidden behind a very thin smoke layer and can best be seen by torch light. Our tour finishes with a visit to Mustafapasha/Sinasos, an old Greek town with its spectacular old Greek houses; very fine examples of late Greek architecture.  More Info

G3. Ihlara Green Tour

Details: Sometimes called the Green Tour and sometimes called the Red Tour. Whatever the name, on this tour we visit Derinkuyu Underground City where Cappadocians have lived and hidden themselves at times of danger for thousands of years. The beautiful Ihlara Canyon, also known as the "Valley of the Sky", which lies about 100km distant is the main destination of this tour. The entrance is a spectacular panorama where you can see the full height of the canyon with the Melendiz river at the bottom. Villages on the willow-lined banks are still the home of traditional rural life, and you may spot women drying foodstuffs on the roofs of their houses, spinning wool or milking goats. You should also look out for villagers using horses to plough their small fields and carrying wood back to their homes on donkeys. There are a few churches worth visiting including Sumbullu Church, Aachaltı Church, Purenli Seki Church, Kokar Church and Yilanli church. Lunch at Belisirma (the middle village), gives an opportunity to sample a dish of local fish while relaxing to the sound of the water flowing by. After lunch, it's fun to visit the remains of the old mill (bezirhane) which once produced linseed oil used for lighting before electricity arrived. After meeting up with our driver we stop at Selime with its cave houses, monastery and rock pinnacles. Finally, we can drop in at a 13th Century Agizakarahan Caravanseri (Seljuk period motel for camel trains) on our return.  More Info
