Private Cappadocia Blue Tour Itinerary

Derinkuyu or Kaymaklı Underground City

The Blue Tour commences with a visit to one of Cappadocia’s most fascinating attractions—the Underground City. Carved deep into the soft volcanic rock, these subterranean complexes served as shelters for early Christian communities during times of persecution. Descending into the labyrinthine passages, visitors are transported back to a time when these underground cities were vital for survival, offering refuge from invaders and harsh climates alike.

Mustafapaşa Village (Old Green Village, a.k.a. Sinasos)

The next destination of the Blue Tour is Mustafapaşa Village, a charming enclave that exudes timeless charm and rural tranquility. Set against a backdrop of rolling hills and verdant valleys, Mustafapaşa invites visitors to stroll through its quaint streets lined with traditional stone houses and rustic churches. Steeped in Ottoman and Greek influences, the village preserves its architectural heritage while offering a glimpse into the daily lives of its residents.

Dating back to the Byzantine era, this ancient monastery complex boasts stunning frescoes, chapels, and rock-cut churches that bear witness to centuries of religious devotion and artistic expression.

    We had a great time from beginning to end on the tour. Our guide, Hakan, was extremely knowledgable and provided fascinating insights into the region’s culture. He is an excellent guide. What distinguished this tour from others was that the locations we visited were tranquil and peaceful. You had lunch in a beautiful apple garden, and it was great.
