Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nihat who is the man behind the whole thing is professional, nice and available to talk when you need him. Helpful with everything.
It was a 2 day all inclusive experience which was well worth the money and very well put together.
All inclusive means in this case: pick up from the hotel in Istanbul, plane tickets to Cappadocia, pick up from the airport in Kayseri and transport to the tour van, a full day tour, lunch, overnight stay in Avanos Suites hotel, next day breakfast, then you can do the hot air balloon if you wish, after that another day of touring, lunch, drop off at the airport, flight, drop off at the hotel in Istanbul. Nihat communicates via whatsapp, which i initially thought was a bit weird just to discover later that it was best and fastest.
Worth mentioning as well that everything was a good standard experiences in small groups: all the taxis were spacious and clean, cave hotel was amazing, tour was brilliant and fun, lunches were all right etc...
Definitely using his company again when i am back to Cappadocia!

This was my first time in Turkey with my family, and I had booked a 3-day-2-night Cappadocia trip based on internet reviews. I was very apprehensive, but Nihat Mumcu was extremely helpful and patient even before the trip itself. He patiently answered all my questions on WhatsApp, and also sent me all documents (air tickets and hotel reservation) that I required for my Turkey visa. He himself kept in touch with me a couple of time to let me know that all was OK.

The whole trip was totally perfect, right from our pickup from our Istanbul hotel, to our drop back to another hotel in Istanbul.

The first day, we had a wonderful guide, Gokhan, who was himself a graduate in tourism, and knew a lot about the areas he showed us. He also gave us a full tour even though it was just the four of us, and most of his bus was empty. Second day, we had a lady as a guide, who was also very good (I forget her name).

One of the unpredictable things about Cappdocia was the weather, and hence the balloon rides. Our first day reservation was cancelled due to bad weather. We asked Nihat to try to fit us for the next day. He was non-committal then, but told me he'd try. I was very pleasantly surprised to get a call at 3am in the morning that they had found a balloon that could accommodate us. Gokhan told me that he had talked to all his contacts and was lucky to get us ride due to last-minute no-shows. They made sure we had a driver and were in time for the ride.

The last day, Gokhan again guided us, and made sure we were back at the Cappadocia airport in time. I should also mention that their driver was most helpful throughout as well (even though he spoke no English, and we spoke no Turkish).

They put us up at a simple but clean and very nice little hotel, whose owner was also very welcoming and helpful. Lunch was also arranged for, and they ensured that we had sufficient time to rest and have lunch. Gokhan was also very accommodating if we wanted to make unscheduled stops at shops to buy trinkets.

I really cherish the time spent in amazing Cappadocia, and thank Nihat and his team for arranging it so well. I wholeheartedly recommend his tour!

2 days to Cappadocia from Istanbul including the hot air balloon ride.

We were 2 single females visiting Istanbul and wanted to do the hot air balloon trip. We've choose Cave Valey Travel and they made an unforgettable trip for us. They planned everything for us very well. In Cappadocia we've been staying at Elite Cave Suites - perfect location. Many thanks to Nihat Mumcu our guide for these 2 days. He showed us the beautiful Cappadocia and everything that you can do in 2 days there has been covered.
The balloon ride was also managed by the agency through Kapadokya Balloons - pilot Mustafa Siniksarai.
We couldn't picked a better agency. Highly recommended and a must do when travelling to Turkey.

This was a wonderful life time experience, all arranged by Nihat. Nihat was quick to respond to my emails right from the beginning and he always keep me in the loops. Hot air balloon with the company Atmosfer was amazing. We enjoyed every part of it. Nihat was our guide for the rest of our day of at Cappadocia. He knew we were exhausted from our previous legs of our travel and made the rest went by flawlessly. Thank you Nihat for all your arrangements and your guide to make our trip a memorable one.

Whilst visiting Turkey a must do is book a tour with Cave Valley Travel. The owner and staff are so helpful and take care of every detail and provide you with a quality experience.
The accommodation was first class, the Whirling Dervish experience was mesmerising and authentic, and the caves and rock formations give you an other worldly experience like no other.
I would highly recommend this tour.

We booked private tour with Nihat. It was a very smooth transaction. He answered all queries professionally. He arranged everything for us, from transportation in istanbul to cappadocia and back to istanbul, flights, some meals and even hot air balloon. Cappadocia is a truly enchanting city and beautiful. Gokhan our tour guide is very knowledgeable and understanding. Even our driver is very friendly. Travelling with a young toddler is very challenging but they were very accomodating. It was indeed a pleasant trip. Highly recommended!!

I recently visited Cappadocia and was travelling solo. I had booked my entire trip with Cave Valley Travel. Right from the start, Nihat was extremely professional and responded promptly to my emails. He took care of my flights, transfers, hotel accommodation, and all tours including the hot air balloon ride. I had the best time and would highly recommend to all my friends and family.Thanks once again.
