Initially contacted them by email from home and then called them when arrived in Turkey; the email agreed terms were delivered and everything worked out perfectly for the asked package (red and green tours plus the balloon ride).
Cenghiz was our guide on the red tour and he is very professional and helpful with info beyond the tour; the balloon ride was with Asiana Balloons and it was a wonderful experience in all regards.

Cappadocia Home Cooking

We renovated and restored our traditional stone arch house to accommodate the Cappadocia Home Cooking School and restaurant, which is located in the small village of Ayvalı, just 10 km. faraway from Ürgüp. Cooking school run by a family, this is why we want you to feel that our home is your home. We want you to enjoy Turkish hospitality and tradition. We also use only natural fruits, vegetables and spices farmed in our own garden. Of course you get to savor of this authentic Turkish food in our restaurant, after we have prepared them together! We are living in a traditional stone arch house of Cappadocia, which we are lovingly restored to accommodate our family runs Home Cooking School. This could be also teaching recipes for lunch and dinner menus. Our home and cooking class is in a small Turkish style village which is located in Cappadocia. Also transport services are available from anywhere in Cappadocia. Small service fee apply.

We always try to take part in cooking classes during our trips and considering that Turkey has such a rich food culture, we could not skip this experience during our stay in Capadoccia. The lovely afternoon we spent with Tolga and his family at Capadoccia Home Cooking was a memorable experience and we couldn't recommend this cooking class highly enough!
During the 3 hours we spend at their home, we learned not only cooking techniques, but also about their local traditions and authentic local cuisine. The menu we helped preparing included stuffed aubergine, lentil soup, Turkish ravioli and an amazing desert called Dolaz with honey, mostly cooked using ingredients from their own garden in the backyard. After the cooking, we sat in the table to enjoy what we had just prepared and also a range of other dishes previsouly prepared by them.
Note: Even though they offer cooking classes, Capadoccia Home Cooking should be classified as a Restaurant, as they serve home-made typical Turkish food also for visitors who don't take part in the cooking classes.

I and my boyfriend booked one hour horse riding tour through our hotel and that was amazing experience. I wasn't expecting too much for only 1h tour but we ended up seeing so much of the beautiful landscape and the best part was that there were no one else than just us and the guide Osman who was very nice and confident with the horses. I would recommend this to anyone who's going to Cappadocia. We did the tour in the middle of the day so I think that's the reason why there were no one else because sunrise/sunset tours are more popular but I really enjoyed our ride. Thank you so much!

Red Valley

Reviewed By 1TraveltheWorld - Alice Springs, Australia

The Red Valley is only one of the spectacular and beautiful landscapes of nature, within this vicinity.
The fairy chimneys and other water-carved rock formations created by weathering over the millennia are truly a site to behold.
We definitely had to walk through.
After a morning balloon flight, ensure you walk through some of the meandering Valleys of Cappadocia.

Kaymakli Underground City

Reviewed By Ragnar0309

Visited and amazed how the early people thought of building underground cave for security purpose. Built thousands of years ago, this place is now one of the places to visit while on tour in Turkey. Our guide Sir Aleck shared the history of the place, they used to hve a winery inside the cave, stables for their animals. Entrance was 10 lira,souvenir shop outside the place where you can buy gifts and refreshments.

Mount Erciyes

This imposing mountain and former volcano is now a resort area used for skiing and other winter sports. In summer, mountaineers generally attempt climbs from June through September, before the snows arrive at the higher elevations.

Reviewed By Dilek y - Adana, Turkey

Erciyes is the closet skiing center to us. This center is not very big but very comfortable to find every necessities. If you stay in the center of the city it is not difficult to drive the mointain. At the skiing center there is a municipal's restaurants you can eat good foods. But this restaurants closes at 17.00pm , it is not acceptable at such a touristic place.

We did the Hot air balloon Activity from Rainbow balloons and it was probably one of the best experiences I had in Turkey. Our Pilot "Mr Ibrahim" was very professional, He explained everything very nicely. and the overall experience was super smooth. I know where to take the balloon tour from the next time i visit Cappadocia.
