  1. We took the 2 days tour by plane. Totally worth it. The tour operator planned it out very well with lots of information. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we had enough time to spend our Cappadocia days on our own with shops and several other sights that we wanted to see. Would recommend to this Cappadocia day trip anyone as this place is a must see in the world and we had this chance while we were on Istanbul. We have no regrets that we had a 2 days escape to see this wonderful place.
