Cappadocia guided tours- 1.5 days

Hi,

This is my first visit to Turkey and I am planning to be in Cappadocia for 2 days this April end. I will take the morn flight from Istanbul to Kayseri and then transfer to the hotel in Gerome.

I am assuming this will give me only half a day for sight seeing that day, along with next full day before taking an overnight bus to Selcuk.

Since it's just 2 of us, I was thinking to join a guided tour... saw a lot of references to green, red tours on other posts but couldn't figure out the places they cover.

Any suggestions on what I should do in 1.5 days? Something I can DIY on first day and take a tour the next full day OR would I be able to take tours both days?

Also, what is the better way of booking these & the balloon ride? Online right now or once I reach there or through the hotel?

Secondly, for booking the overnight bus to Selcuk- I believe there are lot of options available. Even so, should I book beforehand or it's easy once I reach Gerome?

Sorry if some are repeatedly asked questions but I can't seem to find the right answers.

Hey, thanks for the reference but I don't think they can help for Cappadocia specifically!

Any expert who can answer for Goreme & Cappadocia.. much appreciated, thanks!

hi Dish,

you could try any of these travel agents for Cappadocia

<<<should I book beforehand or it's easy once I reach Gerome?<<<

also you can wait unt,l you arrive in goreme to book your bus tickets..have you not thought of instead of the bus taking a direct flight from Kayseri airport to ızmir airport..very often the cost of an airline ticket can be comparable to a bus ticket and it will save you transit time. why not take a 1 hr flight compared to a 12 hr bus ride.

Thanks Canmon. I had checked the flights from kayseri to Izmir on Aerobilet, but its 110 TL compared to 60TL of the bus ride. Also, if i take flight I loose half a day of sightseeing to reaching Selcuk in the afternoon.

Where can I check the available bus timings so I can plan my day trips better?

I am not sure about your trip as I have answered a few of your posts but if I am reading correctly you are criss-crossing and I would do a trip in turkey in a loop..starting in Istanbul, fly/bus to Cappadocia, then fly/bus to Antalya. bus to pamukkale. bus/train to Selcuk and then fly from Izmir back to Istanbul

that makes more sense to me

also some of the airlines offer free transfers to and from the aiports of Izmir or Kayseri so check those options as well. Atlas jet for one offers free shuttles
