      Goreme & Urgup

      by Poling Online Now Jan 11, 2014 at 6:01 PM

      In Cappadocia I will stay 2 nights in a Cave room and then 2 other days in ordinary pension.
      1. Should I then spend 2 days in Goreme and then another 2 days in Urgup? Or all my time in Urgup instead of Goreme as I heard Urgup is less touristic?
      2. Is the Red/Green/Blue tours and Balloon package same as those arranged in Goreme?
      3. Is transport from Neveshir airport to Urgup similar to Goreme? (I am charged about 25TL for the pick-up from Neveshir to Goreme.)
      4. Any recommendation of accommodation for my stay in Urgup?

      private driver recommendation?

      by greencargirl Online Now May 27, 2013 at 10:26 AM

      Hi everyone,
      We are looking to hire a driver to pick us up (and return us) to the Kayseri airport, as well as taking us to several sites around the Cappadocia area for one full day (early morning to evening.) If anyone has used a private driver, can you suggest them? Alternatively, I am thinking we might rent a car, though I'm not sure about driving in that area. I'm not so good with narrow winding roads :)

      Thank you for any suggestions!

      visiting Göreme in December

      by mariat31 Online Now Nov 4, 2012 at 11:05 AM

      Hi there,
      My husband and I are planning to visit Goreme in December this year. We are thinking to stay for 4-5 days but haven't booked anything yet. We are very keen to hike there but I assume we would need to hire a guide or join a group tour considering the time of year.
      Maybe somebody traveled there in winter time and can recommend activities or a tour operator.
      It would be great if you let me know about your experience visiting Cappadocia in winter.
      We also searching for accommodation - something simple but warm.
      Big thank you.

    • Cappadocia- Local Tour/Tour Guide versus self drive/Do-It-Yourself

      by lethasaldanha Online Now Jul 15, 2011 at 1:12 PM

      I have just finalized all the major bookings for our first trip to Turkey in late Sept/early Oct for 2 weeks. So far, I have planned everything as a 'do-it-yourself' mainly because on the few occasions that I have used a tour group, I feel rushed...I prefer to linger and read even if it means I don't get to see everything. The private guides listed online are pretty expensive for the two of us!

      So my husband and I have two full days (3 nights) in Cappadocia and I have booked accommodation in Goreme. I have read up a lot and have a pretty good idea of what there is to see both on the main tourist trail and a bit further ...with only two days and being our first visit, we will probably be mainly on the tourist trail. We do plan to rent a car for two days, the other option being day tours which I would like to avoid so I don't feel rushed..

      Is it 'doable' to rent a car and do it yourself ( reading a lot of history/geology before and during)--probably one day in and around the Goreme area including Uchisar, Avanos, and probably Derinkuyu and then Guzelyart/Ihlara Valley the 2nd day upto the Agzikarahan Caravansary? Do most people opt for a tour group or private guide? Can you get private guides locally for specific areas e.g the Open Air Museum on the spot and what does that cost?

    • Hours of Dolmus or Bus from Goreme

      by caer Online Now Jan 28, 2011 at 6:22 PM

      We're planning a trip to Turkey in September. The last leg involves getting from Goreme to Istanbul. Does anyone know what time the dolmus and/or bus from Goreme to Nevsehir starts service in the morning. Also, we plan to fly from Goreme to Istanbul and assume it's better to fly from Nevsehir as it's closer to Goreme rather than from Kayseri. Does anyone have any suggestions? Appreciate any help as it's difficult to research buses on the internet. Thanks!

      Car hire vs tour?

      by ara2 Online Now Apr 8, 2009 at 12:04 AM

      Hi fellow travellers,

      My husband and I are plannning to visit cappadoccia in early May for 2 full days. We are on budget so I need some advice on the most affordable way to visit the best bit of cappadoccia. I am contemplating either to take 2 full days tour (blue & red) or hire a car.

      If I decided on tours:
      Is it possible to arrive before the tour start (930 am) if we take bus from Istanbul? I got some conflicting info re hours taken on bus journey, ranging from 10-12 hrs. What bus should I take to arrive at Goreme latest by around 830ish?

      Is 50YTL ok for each tour per person? So far, we shy away from joining tour coz we would like the flexibilty of spending time on what we like most. However, due to limited time & information as well as tight budget, we might consider this option.

      On car hire:
      Can any of you recommend good, trusted & affordable car hire company? Should we book in advance or on the spot?
      How much is car hire for a day?
      Can someone suggested good driving itinerary coz I can;t find cappa's road map so I don't know what to expect with regards to distance in between the places of interest. I am not doing the balloon thing.
      Is driving in Goreme safe?
      How far is the Goreme open air museum from goreme town? is it walkable?

      Sorry for long entry but thanks for your help.
