The best experience was flying in the Hot Air Balloon. The next best was being able to stay for 2 nights in the best Dere Suites in Cappadocia. And to top the list was when we had a very special guide at Ephesus as we were very lucky to have Mr. Mehmet as our guide who knew every little detail of Ephesus and he was able to explain in detail which helped us along the way . Even at Pamukkale he was very through in explaining everything to us and in this way I must say that this is the very very best tour and u will never ever look back. If given another opportunity I will surely book this tour again. It is worth the money. Even the very trips by plane was all very well organized from the beginning to the very end.

Couldnt recommend this tour more! The customer service was fantastic. We didnt receive our confirmation immediately (due to a system error). It was 11pm when we booked and i was worried so i messaged on whatsapp. I received a response immediately and was told theyd check and get the confirmation the next day which i did. Fast forward to the tour and everything was perfect. Every single transfer and flight was on time and free flowing. The guides were knowledgable, funny and catered to all needs. Allowing just enough time at every location and attraction. I honestly couldnt recommend this more. If you have the time you need to book this as well as the hot air balloon. Once in a lifetime experience and worth absolutely every single penny.

This 4 day tour was supposed to be an escorted tour for up to 15 people. The first two days went very well. Pick ups on time and a small group of our 6 travelers were escorted by the same guide and driver for the full two days. It was excellent and covered all the key places in Pamakkale and Izmir. The hotel in Kusadasi was excellent as well. Unfortunately, the last two days were not the same. For our last two days in Cappadocia, we were picked up by just the regular airport shuttle for the 45 minute trip to our cave hotel. The cave hotel accommodation was authentic and excellent. However, for the third day, we were just added to the regular red tour itinerary with other travelers that had booked that red tour. We stopped and picking up other travelers for the day and dropped them off as well before getting back to our hotel. On the fourth day, it was the same for the green tour. We were picked up and after picking up other travelers we were then taken to a local travel agency where we waited to be put on another bus to go with the local tour for that day. At the end of the tour, we will just sent back on the airport shuttle jammed in with 20 other people. When you pay a premium to be on a tour package, you expect it to be an inclusive tour for the four days and not just two days.
