Tour guide Ali was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. He has a good command over the English language. We had a last min flight cancellation by Turkish airlines and Ali helped us maneuver through that as well (he is also a travel agent!). This was our last day in Turkey. If we had more days, We would opt to do more tours with Ali. I will recommend him to my friends and family.

This one day tour to Konya was a perfect day! We discovered a great part of the silk road and an ancient carawansarai where you still feel the vibrant atmosphere of old times before we headed to Konya. Ferai, our guide, knows a lot about Rumis and Shams lifes, their teachings and anecdotes, it was so interesting to listen to her. I had enough free time to visit Rumis tomb and the ancient dervish lodge to know more about daily life there and how people could become a dervish. We also visited a madrasa with one of the most beautiful entries in Turkey. Lunch was also great, we went to a restaurant with typical Konya food, excellent! And since it was a small group, we could ask all our questions and not just learn about Sufism, but also about Turkey in general. Ferai and Ali, thank you so much again for this unforgettable day!

Konya, la meca de los místicos derviches giróvagos y Mevlana, si los derviches son esos señores vestidos de blanco que giran y giran sin parar Este ritual se llama sema Centro del sufismo islámico de Turquía y hogar del maestro Mevlana Rumi, al ser miembros de la orden sufí Mevlevi, los monjes derviches viven la danza como una forma de meditación religiosa. El Museo Mevlana es el sitio turístico más visitado del país luego del Palacio Topkapi, en Estambul. La danza de los Derviches es una forma de meditación sagrada cuyo objetivo es llegar al éxtasis. El propósito de este baile es reflejar la naturaleza giratoria de todo lo que se encuentra a nuestro alrededor, desde las galaxias, al pensamiento . Es una celebración religiosa, también es un espectáculo que se ha convertido en parte de la identidad de la cultura turca, y es por eso que los turistas no pueden dejar de perderse este espectáculo
