Top 10 Things to do in Uchisar, Turkey

October 13, 2017 Florencio Paulino

The rock citadel of Uchisar is a weird and wonderful structure, resembling some kind of Jim Henson creature emerging from a pile of stones. Spend some time exploring its hand-carved hallways and chambers before climbing to the top to admire the surrounding view. Or take it all in from a completely different angle and hire a hot air balloon to transport your Uchisar experience to new heights.

The Cappadocian Region located in the center of the Anatolian Region of Turkey, with its valley, canyon, hills and unusual rock formation created as a result of the eroding rains and winds of thousands of years of the level, lava-covered plain located between the volcanic Mountains Erciyes, Melendiz and Hasan as well as its troglodyte dwellings carved out of the rock and cities.

Initially contacted them by email from home and then called them when arrived in Turkey; the email agreed terms were delivered and everything worked out perfectly for the asked package (red and green tours plus the balloon ride).
Cenghiz was our guide on the red tour and he is very professional and helpful with info beyond the tour; the balloon ride was with Asiana Balloons and it was a wonderful experience in all regards.

We did the Hot air balloon Activity from Rainbow balloons and it was probably one of the best experiences I had in Turkey. Our Pilot "Mr Ibrahim" was very professional, He explained everything very nicely. and the overall experience was super smooth. I know where to take the balloon tour from the next time i visit Cappadocia.

Reviewed By Feza K - Ankara, Turkey

Kocabag vinery was just at the end of the long slope from Göreme to Uchisar. As we were biking, this was the perfect location to stop and drink some vine. They have nice vine but we went for a bottle of their limited superior vine. We purchased it and drunk it against the beautiful Uchisar view.

Reviewed By jdmonthego - Istanbul, Turkey

Our Sultan Balloon ride was a complete delight. So straightforward in every aspect of organisation, from booking online in Australia to drop-off at our Goreme hotel afterwards. And the experience is sensational! We knew the extraordinary Cappadoccian landscape would be stunning but hadn't anticipated the beauty of the myriad balloons rising gently into the dawn sky. We felt safe and relaxed in the skill of our pilot Rafiz and free to enjoy a bird's eye view of this amazing geology. The efficiency and generous spirit of everyone in the team made it really special. Don't miss it!!

This is the highest point in Cappadocia Valley, so you can survey the entire region from above. If you can imagine how they used to live and organise themselves in this rock, thousands of years ago, than you didn't travel there for nothing:)

Discover Cappadocia! Here in Cappadocia we can fly within the Valleys and around the fairy chimneys, very close to the ground and up to2.000 ft altitute. The flights are so perfect, one would think that the balloon actually had steering facilities.

Flying balloon was the first activity I did upon arriving in Cappadocia. And, sincerily, the trip couldn't have started better. Of course, this means that the day started very early, with some warm clothes, still in silence on the darkness ... This is gonna changing...MoreDear Jaque, Thank you very much for flying with us and taking time to write a review about us.

We went in an amazing tour provided by this agency. As the aim of the tour was to meet some important spots from Cappadocia and this way improve our staff knowledge, we had an excellent attention from the company. An special mention should be done about Mrs. Simone and Mr. Ömür who organized everything. As a manager from the department I would like to say thanks for their staff. The car was comfortable and the driver was professional, the itinerary was adapted according to our necessities and thats made us really glad. Once you come to Cappadocia just choose the private tour from KLEOS tourism because they are 100% able to customize your Cappadocia trip and make it by the way you want! Once again, thanks to Ömür, Simone, our driver Mustafa and also to Ugur, the guy who attended us in the Carpet store that we visited and explained everything about the carpet production.

Reviewed By Tracy W

Seeing the balloons light up like Christmas lights in the pre-dawn darkness and the sun rise over the distant Mountains, surrounded by other balloons, are memories that will remain as highlights of our trip to Cappodoccia. Our pilot, Adam, gave us a great ride - so smooth and with a precision landing. We loved the smaller basket and the reasonable price too!

Kilim carpets new old and antique

Reviewed By BulaTasmania_ - Tasmania,

After 8 days in Turkey, this was only our fourth carpet shop but the best. Ŕecommended by our tour guide, we found perhaps the most sincere and honest shop owner in Turkey - not something to be said lightly given how pushy most of them are. Faruk listened to what we wanted and then proceeded to show us the best selection we have seen. Nothing was too much trouble and time was not a factor. He was straight to the point when talking price and his impeccable manners earned our respect and trust. A deal was done and we know we have purchased a quality carpet which we will treasure forever - sold with a sincere smile, a firm handshake and a Turkish coffee!
