A couple days after my not so great green tour I take the Cappadocia Red Tour. I thought I may have overreacted a couple days ago but after taking the red tour with a different vendor I know I am correct in my opinion. The red tour is well organized and the guide is very personable. His name is Sonny and he made our day sunny.
First stop is a view of Uchisar Castle.
Next is Goreme Open Air Museum
A favorite of mine in the Open Air Museum is the Dark Church. It is a separate ticketed option but well worth it in my opinion. The artwork inside is very nice (no photos allowed).
I have no idea why they call it that. <sarcasm>
Avanos pottery demonstration
The pottery is nice but it is way too early to start weighing my backpack down so I forgo any purchases.
Then we stopped at lunch. I don’t remember what I ate but I had to try all the desserts on the buffet.
Before we went back out sightseeing we stopped for a silk demonstration. It is interesting to learn how silk items are made.
Aaaannd the demonstration of the rugs. Some are nice enough to tempt me but they are so expensive. I just can’t purchase one….especially with no job and no permanent place to stay.
After the tough sell we stopped at Devrent Valley where there are a bunch of rocks that look like things.
Finally we finish out the day at Paşabağ
Great day, great tour guide. All the magic of Cappadocia in one day.
