Cappadocia and Baloon ride Really unique landscape
Name: Memis Buyukata We had wonderful tour leader and guide, amazing driver too (Asim). Memis was very experienced and knowledgable. Thus although it was a tourist season, he had great planning that enable us to get to places at ease and never having to beat with the crowd. Give us more positive understanding of Turkey at end of the trip.
Just go & enjoy! Well developed and very convenient country in everyway. So pack light, since plenty of shopping opportunities too.

There were a lot of really exciting and memerorable parts of the holiday for me but the four that stand out were Ephysus, Troy, Pamaukale and the Goreme Open Air Museum.
Sellen was absolutel brilliant, she realy made the trip for me. She was friendly, funny and informative with out ever being overbaring. She was just a joy.
Be prepared for bad coffee! The Turkish coffee is lovely but generally the coffee that you order will be Nescafe!

Ephesus, specially the size of the old city. Archaeological museum in Ankara. Cappadokia and the ballon-trip Kas and the whole day at the boat. Istanbul of course
He had lots of knowledge about the whole country, sights etc. But sometimes he spoke to much and often repeated the topic. Specially in Cappodokia he gave us many good experiences, dinner in private home, the hamman (bath), walking in the mountains. Too little time to be social in the group in the evening.
Take this tour. You learn so much about the start of Europes people and the beginning of life. Take some extra days in Istanbul. If you buy carpets, buy in small private shops in the small towns, not in the big factories.

Very knowledgeable. Good organisational ability. Friendly and approachable.
Yes, as well as possible in the time available.
Travel light. Book this trip – very comprehensive, but with sufficient free time.

Sleeping under the stars in the desert at Wadi Rum and sunset at the ruins in Palmyra
Bashar was excellent – very enthusiastic, organised and personable. I particularly enjoyed his cultural talks in the evenings. Faisal was less so – he gave confusing instructions and was not as approachable as Bashar. He had excellent historical knowledge though.
More so in Syria where tourism was less obvious than in Jordan.
More so in Syria as Bashar was very good at answering questions and explaining the culture of his country. I felt less in touch with local life in Jordan.
Research the appropriate clothing to wear and don’t let little mishaps bother you!
