Private Guide in Cappadocia

by Frendt1

We will be visiting the Cappadocia area in October and would like to find a private guide to show us the area. Any suggestions on how to find a reputable and good, English speaking guide for the area? Thank you.

Almost all (if not ALL) hotels and accommodations in Cappadocia have their tour services, either their own or a tie-up agent.

So normally, you won't need booking tours or contacting tour agents in advance because your accommodation will eventually offer you package tours which basically includes an english (or Japanese or French or local speaking guide).

We stayed in Goreme area and our accommodation immediately offered us affordable package tours and a balloon ride (cost less than the market price).

You don't worry about tours in Cappadocia, hotels and just everywhere, you'll find tour packages that suits your needs, they don't normally differ in price and services.

Enjoy Turkey...juz as I always do!

Travel Tips for Goreme

festivals &public holidays

by FAIRYCHIMNEY

The offical calander is the western Gregorian one as in Europe, but religous festivals, some of which are public holidays , are celebrated according to the Muslim Lunar calendar.As the Lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the Solar year used for the Gregorian system, the Muslim festivals appear to arrive that many days earlier each year.
While friday is the Muslim sabbath , it is not their holiday.Mosques are often crowded on a friday noontime.The day of rest, a secular one is sunday, although in tourist areas many facilities are available throughout the week.
The two main religious holidays are ;

Þeker Bayramý (Sugar holy festival)
This is a 3 to 5 day celebration,which follows the month of daylight fasting of Ramazan.Traditionally , children go from door to door receiving sweets and treats from their neighbour.Muslims Exchange greeting cards and pay social calls where special foods will be offered.Everybody enjoys a drink,normally tea in the luxury of the daylight hours.During this national holiday , banks and offices are closed.

Kurban Bayramý (Holy festival of Sacrifice)
Two months and ten days after Þeker bayramý , Kurban bayramý is the most important religious holiday of the year.Is is equivalent to Christmas in Christian counties.The festival commemorates Abraham’s near sacrifice of his son,Isaac , on mount Moriah.In the story , God orders Abraham to take Isaac up to the mount to sacrifice him.Abraham takes Isaac and lays him on th atlar , but at last moment, God stops him and congratulates him on his faithfullness.God then orders him to sacrifice a ram, which had been tangled in a bush nearby , instead of his son. Following the tradition ,over 2.5 million sheep or , in the case of poorer families,goats are sacrificed on the kurban bayramý in Turkey each year.A proportion of the meat must be donated to the needy and the skins are often given to charities which can sell them to leather production companies.Greeting cards are exchanged and many people take to the roads,going home to their families and old friends.
Kurban Bayramý is a four days holiday.Banks maybe closed for a whole week,normal business is interrupted , transportation crowded and resorts packed with holiday makers.

torch is a necessity :)

by FAIRYCHIMNEY

April is very rainy and still cold ; even though we have 4 seasons in turkey , cappadocia has only 2 : winter and summer.therefore dont consider april or may as spring (well sometimes weather surprises us) and bring jumpers and raincoats. You can find all kind of photo equipment in urgup ,if you dont want to carry any with you. Trekking boats and torch is a necessity

Fairy Chimneys

by MalenaN

In a valley between Avanos and Göreme you find these fairy chimneys. The darker stone on the top is harder than the stone below and has not been as much erroded. It looks like hats, mushroom hats. It is an amazing landscape!

Selime Monastery

by MalenaN

North of Ihlara, cut in the rocks, is Selim Monastery. It is a complex with several rooms. The church has a gallery and you can climb some stairs to the upper gallery in one room.
The rocks are more cone shaped here than in Göreme.
Some people say that this place was used when making the Star Wars film, but it is not true.

Great breakfasts

by albaaust about Keleb

The Kelebek breakfasts were fantastic..the best we had throughout Turkey. Homemade muesli, various dried fruits, cereals, yoghurt and cooked breakfast.

The dinner at the Kelebek we heard was also good. Unfortunately, we went to other restaurants in the townsite.
