Cappadocia Fairy Chimney Ride

The Cappadocia Fairy Chimney Ride begins and ends in the historic town of Ortahisar in the heart of Cappadocia. 

This ride takes you off the beaten path and allows you to explore the more remote valleys and villages where few tourists go. 

There is an opportunity to visit the Göreme Open Air Museum to see the awe-inspiring painted churches built by exiled Christians during the Roman era as well as watch Dervishes perform their rituals in a 13th Century Caravansarai.

Please note that normally you stay in the Queens Cave Hotel when in Ortahisar but on occasions we do use other hotels. All hotels used are of the same standard.
