Good for a one time visit! After seeing the various points in green tour this is not something that will make you feel any special. It has similar as expected views

It is special but once you seen one cave it's not much new in the others. Wouldn't be without it though.

A tour around Cappadocia can't be completed without visiting Goreme open air museum. A guided tour is strongly advised, to learn more about the frescoes on the walls of the churches in and outside the museum, that are carved into stones. Those on budget might...More

This open air museum is a gem of Capadoccia. Great Christian remains from several centuries in form of churches, monasteries and nunneries excavated in the beautiful Capadoccian rock formations and with a lot of unique frescos. I can recommended it enough. Fantastic

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
