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!

You can have a best view of long stretch of valley form the castle. Need to be careful as the surface is still getting eroded. Fun to climb small castle. Difficult for old people to climb. A geologist will always love the view for extinct volcano.

Culture Museum

Reviewed By Helena B - Cape Town Central, South Africa

This museum in the centre of Ortahisar on the main square gives a glimpse into the history and culture of the town and area. The displays are excellent and easy to follow and all on one floor. You really get the feeling of daily love in a village house and how the people lived and work. From Nvesehir we took a minibus outside Ali Bey Cami and the trip is about 30 minutes and stops on the main square where the museum is located. Entrance was 5 Turkish Lire and hours 9 am - 5pm. After the museum you can walk to the castle and also explore the stone houses in this beautiful village.
