Overall a unique experience for those who’ve never been inside a cave/underground tunnels before. Getting to see the rooms/places where people used to take refuge in/live in was really humbling. Not suitable for those with bad back/knees as some tunnels require extreme bending of the...More

It is however not an uninteresting site by any means. Depending on the accuracy of the information flooded on me by resident freelance guide Mustafa, the dimensions and peak population of this place were impressive. More so after visiting. Tall, and as is my case,...More

This city is so cool! Do pay for a guide outside the city to fully enjoy the experience! The price for a guide is generally 59 lira.
