- Excellent trip covering a wide range of historical and geographical interest. The trip was well planned with good information provided beforehand. Most accommodation was excellent and the cave hotel was fabulous.
Firat, the group leader, is an excellent guide and ensured that we all had a great time and experience. His knowledge and passion for his country is impressive as well as his great sense of humour. Hallis, our driver, was the epitome of calmness and ensured that the long drives were carried out with ease.
This tour is one to be recommended and advise that you try everything-bring extra money for the hot air ballooon trip as you will kick yourself if you miss it. Also worth spending some extra time in Istanbul at the end of your trip as one day is really not enough.
Tips: I dismissed others advice of sink plugs and hats and wished I hadn't. Most hotels didn't have kettles so maybe worth bringing a travel one. Also the insects loved me (no one else) and had many horrible infected bites-the DEET spray is certainly coming with me on future hols! Money is also easily exchanged.
