Having travelled the “Silk Road” and “Journeyed through the Balkans” with Explore we were keen to visit Turkey as an important historic trading link between east and west and it made for a wonderful trip.
We had anticipated visiting many ancient sites but not reckoned on impressive landscapes we were to pass through, particularly around Cappadocia and Pamukkale.
Our highlight was early in the tour, Cappadocia. Walking in the area was a delight and being aboard one of possibly a hundred hot-air balloons rising at dawn was unforgettable. The itinerary boasts premium accommodation throughout but nothing equalled the experience of 2 nights spent here at the Affina Cave Hotel.

Highlights were Ephesus, Cappodoccia, Aphrodisias.
Turkish food is good - sample everything.
Do the balloon trip even if you have done one before.
Make time for the museums - beautifully presented and very informative.
At Ephesus visit the houses and their mosaics - pick the right moment and it's quiet and an escape from the busy site
Visit a hammam - wonderfully relaxing!

Knowledge of the guide. Some sights were good but far too busy to fully enjoy. Gallipoli was great would like to have spent more time there. Cappadocia really good.Be aware of long coach trips at end of holiday and fact some hotel rooms have been smoked in.

Wonderful informed engaging tour guide. Superior accommodation and organization. We were first at main sites and beat the crowds. Never felt rushed, but maintained the planned itinerary. We were delighted to have not only highlights of the centuries of life and magnificent ruins, but also a chance to meet locals in most stops, enjoy local cuisine and relaxation free time to browse on our own or with fellow travellers. Great to be in such a small group, too! Thank you Ferat and Explore

Highlights of my trip : Phaselis and Termessos - hidden ancient towns, few tourists; Kayakoyu ghost town; Kaymakli underground city; Sultanhani Caravanserai; Alfina Hotel and Mediterra Art Hotel.
There is a lot of travelling but I love looking out the window and watching the world go by - great time to relax.
It was lovely to be able to see bits of modern (non tourist) Turkey mixed with stunning ancient cities and monuments.
