Maximize your time in Turkey, and visit two of its “must-see” destinations – Cappadocia and Pamukkale, on this 3-day tour from Istanbul travelling by plane and overnight coach. Small group tours with expert local guides in each location will ensure you don’t miss out on key sites. You will have a free evening in Cappadocia to soak up the atmosphere and sample some of the local cuisine. In Cappadocia you’ll check out an underground city, early Christian churches carved into rocks, and the surreal, lunar-like landscape of this area before travelling by comfortable, overnight coach to Pamukkale. In Pamukkale, you will marvel at the natural wonder that is the famous “cotton castle". You will also have an opportunity to swim in the thermal waters that made the nearby ancient city of Hierapolis a drawcard for people from all over the Roman Empire, before flying back to Istanbul.

Pick up from your Istanbul hotel at 5:00 am and transfer to Istanbul airport for your 7:00 am flight to Kayseri.
