Me and my friend found this tour so exiting, it was a day trip that we had joined in Cappadocia with walking in a valley and discover the nature nearby it. The tour was started early in the morning and ended late in the afternoon, between this time, we walked in the nature, had information about the each place we had seen and have a lunch in a local village restaurant.
