5 Ali Hinde, 17/10/14

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

Everything was amazing but cycling up 1200 metres on day 5 was not only a great sense of achievement, but with thunder, lightening and the sound of praying from the mosque, this is something I will never forget. Other great highlights were the great scenery (both at the coast and in the many hills), making new friends and spending time with the Turkish people in their homes and villages.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

It is a great way to experience some of the rural Turkish life - amazing cycling through areas where the agriculture was varied and abundant and to experience local life in more remote areas

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Drinking cold pomegranate juice in a rural village half way up a hill. Also I loved the wild flowers in the fields. The group dynamics was really good.

Tour Leader Name

Paul

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Paul was a great patient, unflappable guy. His Turkish historical and local knowledge was endless. Any bike adjustments were of no problem to him and he was so fast at mending punctures - we had many.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Be prepared for some stiff but rewarding climbs. The views were amazing and there was little traffic. Take care on the downhill rides as some of the road surfaces are not special.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

This was my first trip to Turkey and I loved it, even when I was puffing and panting up the hills. The countryside, people and food made this a delightful trip.
