Itinerary

This is a private tour designed only for you and your loved ones.

Dive into the rich history of Cappadocia and journey through time exploring the ancient churches and cellars of Tatlarin, believed to be over 3,000 years old. Roam the shores of the Salt Lake, and, weather permitting, even take a dip into its waters.

The day starts with pickup from your accommodation in Cappadocia. Journey to Nevsehir Hill Fort near the city of Kayserit and marvel at the Tatlarin Underground City, a maze of tunnels and rooms that dwarfs all other finds to date. Enter an ancient toilet – proof that toilets were being used in Anatolia around 3,000 years ago, and explore the giant rooms believed to have been used for religious or military purposes.

Continue to Saratli Underground City, a mystical city famous for its history and architecture. A 7-story structure, Sarati has a water well, wine cellar, bath, toilet, barn, kitchen, and around 40 different rooms. It is believed to have been used as a sanctuary and defense place, and within it, there are secret tunnels connecting to the peasants’ homes proving access to the underground city in the event of an attack from enemies.

Next, drive to Oresin Han Caravanserai, where you can explore the Caravanserai (literally 'caravan places') while your lunch is prepared. Used since the 10th century as an inn for Silk Road traders, this ancient building displays fine examples of stone carving.

After lunch, drive approximately 1 hour to the stunning Tuz Golu (Salt Lake). Enjoy ample time to roam the shores and admire salt rocks and the vibrant hues of pink and orange reflecting off the pristine waters. Capture photos of the sunset, and, if weather permits, take a refreshing dip in the lake before the return transfer to your hotel.
