The Basics

Your mind isn’t playing tricks on you. The shapes that the soft volcanic tuff has been shaped into over time resemble familiar animals and shapes. Some tuffs morph into the shape of a camel while others transform into a snake, or even a dolphin, across its lunar-like landscape. Regardless of what you see, the Devrent Valley let’s imaginations run wild in this veritable rock zoo.

Small-Group Cappadocia Tour: Devrent Valley, Monks Valley and Open Air Museum in Goreme
Our first time to Cappadocia and what an amazing experience it was. We were not aware of such history existed within central Turkey. We visited Devrent Valley, Open Air Museum and Monk Valley. Monk Valley was our favourite site, the structures and chimneys were mind-blowing. The art in the caves at the Open Air Museum were incredible and had such detail. Lunch was at a authentic restaurant with pleasant staff and amazing food. Hafiz our guide was brilliant he was very informative and left nothing out. He also answered every question he was asked. Full of knowledge and an amazing guide. He was polite and always kept us in the loop for everything we were doing and had planned to do. His love and admiration for his home town Cappadocia was heartfelt. Highly recommend this tour as Cappadocia has so much to offer.
