Self Guided Walking Tour in Cappadocia: 3 Days of Highlights 

Cappadocia is a surreal landscape created by nature. It has for long been a settlement area for people but it has been mostly known for its ruck cut churches. Easy to carve out, the tufa stone has been worked for many years to adopt it for the peoples lifestyles. It has been worked to make an underground city or to make a final resting place for themselves. Being a popular destination, the best way to see and feel Cappadocia is to hike. This 3 day itinerary brings the best hikes in the region with important sites, like Open Air Museum, included in the program.

Although, most of the routes along the tours are very well way marked, we decided to provide GPS units which are simple to use, easy to read nonetheless sophisticated devices.

All you have to do is follow the route shown on the device. 1 GPS is provided for every group.

Mobile Phone

With the experiences we have had, we thought that it is best to provide every group with a mobile phone with a pre-paid Turkish sim-card. This helps a a lot in making arrangements during the trip. The phone numbers of the hotels, emergency numbers and the contact details for the company are already listed in the mobile phones.
