At Akköy Evleri we can organize custom designed sightseeing tours (half day, daily, multiple days) just as you like.
We arrange a wide range of tours to cater to the needs and interests of our guests, and we have mapped out routes and set prices for these. If desired, we arrange for visits at local weavers and potters, and allocate time to specific sites according to the plans of our guests. You could also float silently through the valleys, so close to the rock formations that you can almost touch them. You could rise to 1000 ft to enjoy magnificent views over the valleys. A balloon flight is an unforgettable experience, and we will make arrangements for you with the best available rates of the season upon request.

Local activities

There are a lot of local activities – for example nearby caves, waterfalls, spas, local markets and historical buildings such as churches, mosques and castles.
The old bazaar in Kayseri is a colourful gathering of all kinds of merchandise. Friendly shopkeepers sell herbs, clothing, jewellery, shoes, household articles and unique artifacts. There is also a local market in Urgup that you can visit, as well as historical buildings from Ottoman times, museums and churches. We arrange for photography tours to local caves, waterfalls, as well as health-visits to local spas upon request.

 

Nature tours

Hiking, mountain biking, jeep safari, horseback riding – there are many ways to discover Cappadocia a bit faster than by foot. Come with us on an adventurous bicycle tour through the valleys and hills of the region, custom designed for your needs and interests. We can also arrange for horseback riding upon the ancient hills of Cappadocia if requested in advance and season and circumstances are allowing.
The hotel has a jeep available for jeep safari tours in Cappadocia at large as well as on top of the village itself where there are ancient caves and rock formations. A night’s stay with a camp fire is easily arranged for families with young children as well as groups looking for a total break away from the city while staying at Akköy.

History tours

Early Christians settled in Cappadocia to practice their faith in peace, safe from enemies like the Romans, and the most beautiful frescoes can still be admired today. We arrange for daily trips to the Open Air museum, as well as taking you to the less known monasteries and churches upon request.
Cappadocia also has a large number of underground cities. These were so big that over 20.000 people could live underground when enemies threatened. Some of these are open to public, while others could only be visited via private arrangements.
If you wish to venture into the ‘less seen’ territory, we provide guidance and link you with the locals in other villages who take you to these rare sites.
