DH and I had a lovely time during our 3 days in Cappadocia. We didn't rush around to do lots of things but enjoyed the natural beauty and friendly people. As with my report on the Istambul,Forum, I won't go into details on the sights.
We flew from IST to Kayseri on the early morning Turkish Airlines flight, with a shuttle taking us to our hotel, Serinn House. We had a lovely late breakfast on the terrace with a grand view. We spent most of the day walking around Urgup and resting after little sleep the night before. For the next two days, we had an outstanding guide, Ali (although our hotel made arrangements for us through one of the tour agencies, he can be reached privately at firstname.lastname@example.org). He took us to less touristy spots and accommodated our pacing perfectly. He is a nationally certified guide so he can go to other parts of Turkey as well as Cappadocia. I particularly enjoyed the Agzikaraman Caravanserai and a wonderful walk through the Ihlara Valley (and a lovely lunch by the stream). Our driver, Hassan, was also excellent.
Of our 3 dinners, we enjoyed the food at Han Cirigan the best by far. We ate one night at Ziggys, which was fun and had a lovely view. The third dinner was quite forgettable so I won't even mention the restaurant.
Between the wonderful hospitality at Serinn House, a great guide and the beauty of the countryside, our trip to Cappadocia was all we hoped it would be. The only glitch was with the shuttle back and forth to the airport. Going to Urgup, the van was overcrowded and I sat up front without a seatbelt, which made me pretty uncomfortable. On the return, the driver never showed up so we had a take a private taxi. I'm not sure how others experienced their airport arrival and transfer. We arrived and left on very early flights so it might not be as much of an issue for mid day flying.
