What you'll do

Derinkuyu Underground City, has all the usual amenities found in other underground complexes across Cappadocia, such as wine and oil presses, stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, and chapels. Unique to the Derinkuyu complex and located on the second floor is a spacious room with a barrel vaulted ceiling. It has been reported that this room was used as a religious school and the rooms to the left were studies. Between the third and fourth levels is a vertical staircase. This passage way leads to a cruciform church on the lowest level. The large 55 m ventilation shaft appears to have been used as a well. The shaft also provided water to both the villagers above and, if the outside world was not accessible, to those in hiding.
Ihlara Valley, The township is famed for the nearby valley of the same name, Ihlara Valley, which is a 16 km (10 mi) long gorge cut into volcanic canic rock in the southern part of Cappadocia, following several eruptions of Mount Erciyes. Through the valley flows Stream. What is unique about this valley is the ancient history of its inhabitants. The whole canyon is honeycombed with rock-cut underground dwellings and churches from the Byzantine period.

Super informative and friendly guide. Our tour have tourists from all around the world and he took good care of everyone. We went to a jewelry shop but the owner there just told us something abt the Tukrey Jewelry and let us free. Overall, it’s a very lovely experience.

I’m very glad that I did this tour as it was very informative about the beautiful land of Cappadocia and it’s early inhabitants. I enjoyed each and every moment of being on this tour. We went to so many magical places and met with friendly people who were in my tour group. The tour leader had a sense of humor and made everything interesting. The lunch was good. The only thing I didn’t like and many other reviewers have mentioned is that we were not taken to Derinkuyu underground city and instead taken to a different one which I don’t understand why and so just didn’t like this discrepancy. The rest was amazing.

We had a great tour with our guide Yusuf. The sights were amazing. Loved the fairy chimney landscapes. Yusuf took us to very picturesque spots. Its perfect if you don’t have a car, otherwise the ilhara valley and underground caves are far to access from Goreme. And you don’t have to worry about tickets and food. Highly recommend.

We went to Kayamkli underground city and not Derinkuyu. Not that I know if one is better than the other, but the description did not match the tour with regard to this aspect. Also, the lunch could have been slightly better, as we got better lunch (with good dessert and tea/coffee at the end) on our red tour with a different agency. Rest, it was a good tour; the above points are very minor and I hope they do not deter anybody from booking this tour.
