Smile Cappadocia

Hi all, hoping someone on will have some info about this. I was wondering if it is possible to get a bus to Cappadocia from Yalikavak or Bodrum, or do any tour companies do this trip. Any help appreciated here..

Re: Cappadocia

I travelled on a bus from Dalyan (dolmus to Ortaca then big bus), changing at Denizli I think. If you go to your local otogar they'll tell you which route to take. You may need to get a dolmus from your first departure point, then the buses get bigger as you hook up with otogars on the main routes. From Dalyan it was two changes, one at Ortaca onto big comfy aircon bus and one at Denizli. Got off at Nevşehir and was picked up there by the pansiyon we were staying at. It's a long trek across the plateau but the buses are comfy, there was free water and coffee, and usually a kindly Turk will offer you food and conversation so it's pleasant enough. Alternatively you can catch up on sleep! I can't remember the price but it was inexpensive, and easy to book the journey and there was lots of help at the otogars to transfer ourselves and our luggage to the right connection.

I stayed in Uçhisar and was glad I did, it's slightly higher up above the valleys so it's a great view, and it's a lot less touristy than Göreme (not that you could describe even Göreme as touristy by Aegean/Med standards). Uçhisar got discovered by the French some years ago so a lot of the tourists there were French, and French people owned some of the hotels, including some wonderful cave hotels. You can get a dolmus down to Göreme and back. It's usual to take your (very good) evening meal in the hotel, but there were a couple of tiny eateries when I was there. I stayed part of the time at Les Terrasses d'Uçhisar run by a French couple, the father and/or daughter took us on walks into the valleys.

I thought there was lots to see and do, though a lot of the locals were surprised that we stayed a whole week! Most of their summer visitors come in and out on organised tours of 2 or 3 days as part of a longer Turkish holiday. I went ballooning, riding, walking, visited Avanos for beautiful pottery, Ürgüp (can't remember why but nice little town), Göreme open air museum for historic cave churches and frescos, and went only a little bit further afield to walk the beautiful Ilhara valley and visit Derinköyü, one of Turkey's famous underground cities (not one for the claustrophobic!).

Re: Cappadocia

Thanks.

RustyDalyan your trip sounds wonderful, lots of travel and scenery etc. but I need more of an organised tour. I am not confident or experienced enough to do this trip without a guide. There is only myself and my daughter going but it would be wonderful to have the opportunity to do it. For the first time in a long time I will be in Turkey for 2 weeks rather than 1 so was thinking of doing the trip whilst I had the time.

Anyone else got any ideas/suggestions?

Re: Cappadocia

Rusty - Msg 4 - as you say there is a huge amount to see and do in Cappadocia as well as churhces, views and sights. Hot air balloning most of the year lots of other activities and in the spring snowshoeing etc.
Have a look at the snow shoeing it's great for any age Trekking & Walking in Turkey - Snowshoeing Cappadocia - Tours and Self-guided Trekking
