After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel and proceed to a typical Cappadocian village home where you will be cooking lunch with a local family. They will show us how to make stuffed vine leaves and manti, traditional dishes stretching back in to the Central Asian origins of modern Turkey. You will taste what you have cooked for lunch.

After lunch we will introduce you to the lunar landscape of Cappadocia at Dervent Valley, and then head to the Zelve Open Air Museum, which is one of the earliest inhabited and latest abandoned monastic settlements of Cappadocia. Seeing the best examples of the fairy chimneys at Pasabag Fairy Chimneys Valley, we drive further to Avanos.

At Avanos, a centre of terracotta art since 2,000 BC, you will see a demonstration of pottery making in a traditional workshop, where the family has been making pottery for many generations. Then you will try our hands at it under the supervision of a master potter. This is also a great spot to shop for pottery.

You will be driven back to your hotel after your pottery experience.
