Cappadocia Turkey is known for the beautiful Hot Air Balloons that take over the sky making it feel you just stepped in to a fairy tale land. We stayed at Hidden Cave Hotel located in the heart of Goreme, this traditional hotel is built into the side of a cave with a spectacular terrace that overlooks the entire city. Goreme is a very small town where you can walk to primarily anything that you want to see and explore. We did a few separate tours this trip in order to pack everything in to only a few days.

Fat Boys Cafe & Restaurant – We ate here every single day because we were so obsessed with the food! Be sure to order the Pottery Kebab & Baklava, they won’t disappoint!

ATV Tour of Love Valley & Red Rose Valley – Highly recommend taking an ATV tour! You get to explore off the beaten path through two of the most beautiful valley’s in Cappadocia.

Hot Air Balloon – Butterfly Balloons was the company we used to book our hot air balloon ride and I could not say enough wonderful things about them. They picked us up from our hotel, took us to the check in spot where we were served breakfast and given guidelines on the excursion. From there, they drove us out to the location where we set off at sunrise in our hot air balloon ride. Nothing will ever compare to the beauty of seeing hundreds of balloons in the air around you with the beautiful pink and blue sky shining through. Upon landing, we were greeted with a champagne toast and fruit then taken back to our hotels.

Personal Tour Guide– We were so so fortunate to be connected to a person tour guide who lives in Cappadocia. Zeynep created a special day tour for us catered to everything we wanted to see and drove us around to each site. She was unbelievable so if you find yourself in Cappadocia let me know and I would be happy to connect you.
