This was a great tour made brilliant due to our leader Paul and the group of 10 of us. The walking was only slightly challenging but the views were spectacular. The second 2 nights accomodation were a bit basic (no sleeping bags needed) but were clean and comfortable and the home made food at both places was wonderful. Paul's knowledge of Turkey - it's history, wildlife and current affairs was tremendous. We went around some ancient sites where he could tell us stories to interest us even in the middday sun. We also had an afternoon at Patara Beach to go in the sea and on the final day we were on a boat to see a sunken city and moored up for swimming and a BBQ. The great thing about this trip is the variety of walking, culture,food and lovely weather,

Excellent trip. The itinerary was interesting and varied - lots of walking, historical sites and a little down time on the beach, and the boat trip on the last day was a wonderful treat!

I went with my daughter after recovering from a nasty cancer the year before. It was a really important break for me as it showed that I am fit enough for active trips and was great to spend time with my daughter. I loved the scenery, my fellow trekkers, the excellent group leader, the walking, the stays at the village houses and contact with the hospitable local people and wildlife. I was even bowled over by the richness of the history (not my favourite interest) and myths of the region. It was really good value as food and drink was cheap. I bought a sleeping bag liner with me (a sleeping bag is not necessary) and got all my gear in a cabin luggage case. I'd looked forward to doing this trip for many years and it certainly did not disappoint. Turkey is a beautiful and culturally rewarding country to discover.

Good walking with fascinating context and a surprising range of world-class scenery and historical sites. Great value, we spent very little during the week. Our group leader was outstanding: personable and relaxed, but professional and knowledgeable. Turkey feels undervisited and we were well looked after, kept busy, and made to feel very welcome by everyone - lots of chances to get off the beaten track and meet locals. Beautiful beaches, wild horses, nomadic beekeeping, ancient tombs, chilling on a boat, fermented milk drinks... An excellent week, thank you very much to everyone.

Zep, our guide was excellent, very informative and efficient. She was always cheerful and caring with a positive outlook. There were eight of us in the group and we all got on well together and with our wonderful guide made the trip so much more enjoyable. There was a mixture of walking with ancient history and great scenery. Didn't need a lot of spending money as most meals included and our visits to restaurants were good value. No need for a sleeping bag. The accommodation was very good and the village house was much better than I expected and a good

Great trip, good food, really fun group. Lots of highlights including very atmospheric call to prayer at George House. Staying at the village house sitting round the fire drinking tea and listening to the owls. Having a laugh while enjoying the walking and great scenery. Zenab was a very good guide, well organised and accurate with her timings and good fun as well. In the trip notes it said to take sleeping bags, but they weren't needed and took up half my case!

There were 6 in our group which was a good size to manage. Our tour leader was professional, friendly, approachable with a sense of fun, nothing was too much trouble for her. The sample of village life was the highlight of my trip, staying in their homes and eating their local cuisine, they were warm and humbling, always doing their utmost to make your stay memorable. The walking was varied, accommodation comfortable and the food was excellent. It is a great idea to have a mix of walking and relaxation on the final day. Transfers were on time the whole trip ran exceptionally smoothly. Well done Explore, it's my first trip with you and certainly will not be the last ................
