What people are saying about Derinkuyu Underground City

Our guide Selim was amazing. His knowledge of history was more than sufficient for understanding the history of cappadocia and the places that we were visiting. Even signed up for the red tour after with same agency after the green tour. Quite a bit of walking so bring comfortable shoes for this tour.

We spent a great day with our guide Veysel around Ihlara Valley and underground cities. He told US facts about history and geography, he also left us some free time to wander around.

Very nice experience. Great guide. It would be great if we can spend more time at the underground city and monastery.
