We are travelling to Goreme next May and will reach Goreme at about 4 pm. We plan to spend two clear days after that. After reading suggestions on VT, we have decided to take the Hot Air Balloon and the Green Tour on Day One. The next day we plan to NOT take a tour but take a Dolmus to Uchisar and hike down the Pigeon Valley in the morning. Later, take a Dolmus to Cavusin and go up to Red Valley Plateau and thereafter to Avanos, Pasabag and Zelve. Request for 1. Comments and Suggestions on the overall plan. Can we do anything better? 2. Guidance on the second day when would be on our own.3. On the day we arrive, we have some hours before sunset. What can be done during this period? Is there time enough to go to Love Valley? We do not wish to visit Goreme Open Air Museum. Thanks

- booked a full day Green tour

I have booked my hot air balloon ride around 3rd week of October - what is generally the weather going to be? I have some mixed reviews on possible gloomy weather in October hence it might not be a great view....

Will it be extremely cold "up" there compared than the ground? Let me know any specific things to take note off. Many thanks!
Can someone suggest the best way to spend 3-4 days in Cappadocia in October? I plan to rent a car.

How many days to stay? 3 or 4 (or 2 or 5?)
What places to go to and in what order?
where to buy trekking gear luggage got lost on a flight

how long would it take?

Thank you very much

I am arriving on a Tuesday night, departing on Saturday early morning. So I have 3 full days - this is in November.
- Is it good time for balloon tour? Any recommendation on company or just book with the hotel?
- I am flying into Nevsehir - is it better to rent a car? There will be 2 of us, and would like to do sightseeing and hiking. If we do rent a car, is it easy to drive around?
- Recommendations on how to maximise the full 3 days please.
I don't like to drive.
are the sites in Goreme walkable?
I heard there are hiking routes.
To reach them, do you need to hire a driver or join a tour?
Hi. im spending two days in cappadocia in june. I would like to book a day tour. The tours that i have seen so far are 60 Euros per person. is this a price worth it? Please advise me on more tour operators i can enquire with. Also, should i take a tour going to ihlara valley, or rather a tour to rose valley and pasabag. I will be staying in Goreme.
Our flight arrives at 20.30 in Kayseri, what is the most economical way of getting to our hostel in Goreme?
Thanks in advance
Do they still have the barbecue and dancing at night at the Art Cafe in Uchisar?
If so, is it turkish dancing?
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?
TIMES OF BUS TO AIRPORT
hi.. i am looking at overnight buses and trains to Goreme in late August 2013. I understand there is some construction going on at Istanbul train station and we would have to travel to Eskisehir first? Any advice on the route a solo traveller should take?
We are still busy planning our trip for next year June.
Will we be able to get a bus from Goreme to Antalya? And also, do they run every day/night from Goreme?
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!
We'll fly to Kayseri airport early in the morning (July), returning to Istanbul the same night, and are hoping to either find a tour or hire an all-day taxi or private driver to help us tour the Cappadocia area.
Any suggestions? Is there a public transportation option for doing this in case we can't hire a driver? Many thanks in advance.
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.
I understand that tourists are targeted at the Nevsehir bus station. We are traveling next week on overnight bus from Antayla. We have hotel reservations and tours already booked in Urgup. When the bus arrives in Nevsehir, do I stay on the bus to Urgup, or do I have to transfer? Any helpful tips from someone who has done this recently would be appreciated. Would I be transferring to a smaller mini bus? Who would be reliable to ask for info there if needed (I understand that often the bus companies are "in" with the pushy touts. Thank you

We are going from Goreme to Pamukkale in two days. There are 4 bus companies here to choose. Has anyone had a bad experience with any of them? Their prices are the sane, my concern is with the level of comfort.
Any last minute input?
Hi, travelling with 2 kids this March and will be needing to bus it from Pamukkale to Goreme. We need an overnight stop on the way but I am not all that keen on Konya (accomodation long way from bus terminal, big city etc). Could anyone suggest an alternative. 6 hours on a bus is about the max for us!!
