Wonderful trip! A lot of ground to cover in 7 days but a perfect way to see Turkey. Ephesus and Cappadocia the highlights for me. Make sure to take the balloon trip :

We absolutely love this tour. We recommend additional activities like Turkish show. We did not like hamam very much but it was okay for experience. Our balloon tour was canceled due to weather condition, but definitely it would worth to do it. Our tour guide was Asli. She did extremely good job, she was professional and entertaining. Thank you FEZ TRAVEL! 7 days passed like one day.

This is the best way to have a quick look over the most magnificent places in Turkey. The tourist guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the places and the culture. The price is very reasonable too. The only drawback is that there was a lot of time spending on the road. I think this is inevitable if you want to cover so many things in a short time. A Highly recommended sightseeing tour in Turkey.

It was a great tour of popular sites in Turkey by air-conditioned bus at a reasonable price. Long bus rides on a few days but quite comfortable. Optional tours are good but you need to plan for them in your budget since they will add up. Pamukale was a little disappointing only a part of it being open and it was an extremely hot and sunny day. We skipped Ankara due to a possible road block for a demonstration. Our guide Ahmet was fun and knowledgeable.

This trip was absolutely incredible. My husband and I had such a nice time seeing Turkey with Funda Akin as our guide. Funda was very knowledgeable and always had an answer for every question she did an awesome job giving us the history of all the sites. The hotels were great, I especially loved staying in Kusadasi and Cappadocia. Kusadasi is on the coast line with lots of cafes and things to do. In Cappadocia we stayed in a cave hotel, it was beautiful. I really enjoyed visiting all the Roman ruin sites and especially loved seeing the calcium travertines in Pamukkale. The breakfasts and dinners were great, i really enjoyed all the food - i am definitely going to miss the big breakfasts with olives, cheese, yogurt, jam, turkish coffee, etc. I highly recommend this tour, it was an experience that I will never forget.

Our room at Burcu Kaya hotel in Cappadocia

The room and bathroom were small but comfortable. There is a phone, fridge and small safe. However, some rooms that other tour members received did not have a phone or fridge.

Image

Last 2 nights in Cappadocia at the Burcu Kaya Hotel

This hotel is kind of maze-like but interesting. Definitely not your typical hotel architecture and it certainly has charm and character. There are not elevators and hence, get some help if you have lots of heavy luggage.

Some rooms around a nice pool at Iris hotel in Canakkale

Tip: If your feet is sore from all the walking on the 1st day, check out the reasonably priced foot massage at the spa in this hotel. My best friend said that it was actually very good.

Image

1st night at the Iris hotel in Canakkale

This 3.5 star my rating hotel has 1 of the nicer locations by the beach. After over-eating on an included wonderful buffet dinner, you can sit down to a view of the beautiful sun set to end a great 1st day.

An example of a light lunch for 2 at a highway stop

Lunches were not included in the tour and there were brief stops along the way for breaks and lunches that you pay for yourself. Most are quite good and very affordable.

Image

Thrill of a lifetime balloon ride in Cappadocia - dont miss this!

Although this is an expensive, optional add-on to your tour in Cappadocia, it's worth every penny for the sights and experience.

Image

Big, white, spacious and comfortable air-conditioned tour bus with wi-fi

There were about 20 of us in the tour group - hence, lots of room to sit anywhere in this big bus. However, there was no toilet on board but there were stops every 2-3 hours for breaks.
