We booked through Katpatuka our baloon flight in Cappadocia and also a private tour (Green Route). Both the attention by Kadir Evci at the office and Ahmet as a tour guide were second to none. I absolutely recommend this experience and trusting completely this company. They know what they do. Also is probably one of the best prices in Goreme so.... go for it!!

Before our trip to Cappadocia, we had booked a Hot Air Balloon excursion with another company and met up with some problem that could have made our paid trip go down the drain. :(
Fortunately, we had gotten help from Mr Kadir Teke from Katpatuka travel to get this issue resolved. He offered to make contacts to ensure our trip still carries on without earning anything from this at all! He also gave very helpful tips about Turkey and introduced us to a stunning place in Goreme to watch the sunset! It also helps that he is very fluent while communicating with us in English.
In return, we decided to book the red tour with Katpatuka Travel and had a good experience. Our tour guide, Ahmet, though young but is very informative and knowledgeable regarding the places that we were brought. The only downside would be the buffet lunch provided during the tour. There was a spread but food was just not to our preference.

Overall, we are very satisfied with the service of Katpatuka travel and would like to extend our greatest appreciation towards them.
Please try their service to feel the same way as us. :)

We booked a tour through Katpatuka Tours with Mr. Kadir Teke, the general manager. Kadir was a very nice man, and really hooked us up! He was very helpful in giving us advice on the next leg of our trip. We were originally planning on going from Cappadocia to Ephesus via Selcuk--make our base in Selcuk and explore Ephesus by day.Then, our plan was to take a bus from Ephesus to Istanbul.

Kadir suggested, instead, that we avoid Selcuk, and instead explore Ephesis from Kusadaci. This turned out to be a much better suggestion! Because we went through Kadir, we saved time figuring out a hotel and bus route. This gave us a couple extra days in our itinerary. As a result, we were also able to explore Pamukkale, which we had wanted to go to but thought we didn't have time.

Kadir also found us a very nice hotel in Kusadaci, which was right by the water.

Kadir also made some recommendations for day hikes in Cappadocia. He suggested the Rose Valley, which was totally awesome! It was beautiful and deserted and absolutely wonderful.

I would strongly recommend going through Kadir and Katpatuka Travels!

My wife Valentina and I went on the blue tour organised by Katpatuka Tour it was a more personal tour being only 4 people in one of their mini buses. We had a memorable trip our guide was very knowledgeable giving lots of information. He went out of his way to take photos of both of us and the beautiful surroundings. He arrange our lunch at a local stop off point which was excellent compared to previous trips when we have been in Turkey before.
