My 10yr old daughter and I travelled to Turkey in 2019 as independent tourists. We both fell in love with it and will return. Cappadocia in Turkey is a bit out of the way but I found it worth the effort. We flew from Istanbul to Izmir, bussed to a gorgeous town of Cesme, stayed for a week at the sea. Then took a flight from Izmir to the gateway to Cappadocia, Kayseri. A savings to having to bus back to Istanbul for the flight! It was easy to rent a car once there and was a huge benefit to be independent once in Cappadocia! Lots of beautiful places with a 45 min drive of Göreme! Fewer people and a great experience. Don’t put your hopes in the super expensive balloon ride! If they miss a day due to weather the price doubles and sometimes triples!
