- Having travelled the â€œSilk Roadâ€ and â€œJourneyed through the Balkansâ€ 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.
