Day 1: Departure

At 4:15 am, we will pick you up from your Istanbul hotel and transfer you to Istanbul airport. You will receive your one-way flight ticket after making a reservation. Upon arrival at the Cappadocia airport, you will be greeted with a sign bearing your name and transferred to your hotel.

The Red Tour will begin with a visit to Devrent Valley, also known as “Imagination Valley,” which boasts the most surreal and unique landscape. Your next stop will be Pashabagi, also known as Monks Valley, where Christian hermits chose to build their cells and churches in the three-headed pinnacles that symbolize the Holy Trinity. Here, you can observe all stages of the formation of fairy chimneys.

Next, we will proceed to Avanos, the pottery center of Cappadocia, located on the banks of the Red River. After enjoying a delicious lunch in a local restaurant, we will visit the Goreme Open Air Museum, where the most significant Byzantine cave churches are located. Monks and nuns inhabited these once remote valleys and pursued monastic life from the 3rd century onwards. You will have the opportunity to see the best-preserved Byzantine cave wall paintings and frescoes from the Iconoclastic period through the end of Seljuk rule.

You’ll visit the Esentepe panoramic viewpoint, which provides a spectacular view of Goreme, including fairy chimneys, rock formations, and cave houses. The tour will conclude with a visit to Uchisar Castle, the tallest rock formation in the Goreme region. After the tour, we will transfer you to your hotel for an overnight stay in a Cave Suite Hotel.


Day 2

(Optional: Pre-sunrise hot-air balloon flight. Hotel pickup: around 6:30am in winter and 4:30am in summer. Dropoff: 8:00/8:30am)

Blue Tour: Embark on a journey through the stunning Red and Rose Valley, considered to be the most breathtaking and mysterious valleys in the region. Marvel at the stunning rock formations and conclude your hike at the Cavusin Cave Village, where you can explore troglodyte dwellings and a rock castle that was inhabited until the 20th century. Indulge in a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before venturing to the depths of the earth with a visit to the Kaymakli Underground City, one of the largest and deepest settlements of its kind in Cappadocia. Discover its stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, churches, and wineries. Take in the panoramic view of the Pigeon Valley, where you can see dove cotes, abandoned cave homes, and old Greek houses of Uchisar and Ortshisar Castle – the largest mass of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia.

At the end of the tour, you will be transferred to the airport at 6:00pm. This concludes our services.

    Absolutely amazing tour, I booked last minute tour with Enka travel and they were outstanding over the 3 days I spent in Cappadocia. I didn’t have to worry about a thing booking tbis tour everything from the moment I was picked up from my Istanbul hotel was organised and the travel agent was very professional, even offering 24/7 assistance and upgrading my hotel to luxury suite. The past 3 days have been incredible I highly recommend the hot air ballooning as its seriously breathtaking. Thank you so much for a brilliant 3 days in Cappadocia.

    I normally don’t write reviews but felt I needed to praise the ENKA travel group, specifically Aygul. She was available 24/7 to answer all of my questions about our trip and organized an amazing experience. I went with my best friend and we had a fantastic time doing the two day tour of the Cappadocia region. But honestly the people were what made the trip amazing. From Aygul, to our tour guide Murat, to our hot air balloon pilot Kurtulus and our hotel manager Emin, everyone was so friendly, helpful and welcoming! I will definitely use ENKA Travel for my next trip to Turkey!

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    My friend and I recently took this trip on the spur of the moment during a 7 day stay in Istanbul. We are so glad we did as it opened up an experience we will never forget. The tour was beautifully organized by the very helpful and friendly Aigul, everything was taken care of and we felt in good hands. We stayed in the cave suite hotel, which was superb and we fell in love with Fatimah who treated us like one of the family. The price of the one night tour included everything and was extremely good value for money. As an extra, which we paid for separately, I have to mention the highlight of the trip was the exhilarating, spectacular hot air balloon ride over the landscape watching the sun come up. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to all explorers as an experience to cherish.

    I can only recommend it!
    The tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained very well all the main points on the tour. He could also answer all of our questions and was very open to answering difficult questions at any point. The tour guide went very smoothly and we had enough time to visit all the sites, walk around them, and enjoy the scenic views. Definitely recommend it for anyone travelling around Cappadocia!
