It was one of the best tours we had, from booking the tour to drop off after the tour, guide Selim Ayas did a great job by highlighting everything in detail. Would definitely recommend it.

We came at the end of the tourist season and had the fabulous guide Selim Ayas all to the three of us. Since there were only three of us Selim was the driver as well, driving a comfortable and clean minivan instead of the larger 16 passenger tour van. Even though it was a small group Selim did not short us out. He was full of information and entertainment. He was truly one of the hardest working guide we have encountered in our travels.

Easy, comfortable and safe. I guess those are the words to sum up our experience with this company. I was traveling with my family of 8, and thus expected things to get chaotic, surprisingly though our green line tour was the most relaxed me and my family felt in Turkiye. The driver drove smoothly and without any rush and our tour guide, Bark, was very accommodating. Throughout the whole trip he explained places well and in a slow manner so that every individual understood what he wished to talk about. He spoke English flawlessly and had no issue communicating with us and integrating places I wished to see into the green line tour. During our long drives between the main attractions, Bark kept a sweet balance between comfortable silence and informative banter. He entertained our family with his own experiences in Cappadocia and his own life growing up there, we really couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Just for 260 Euros for 8 people, the experience itself is way more worth the asking price. Driving through the vast, untouched mountainous lands of Anatolia with a friendly person to guide us through was a truly unique experience. Something I will definitely wish to feel once again.

This tour is a fun day and includes plenty to see. Selim provided tons of information about the area and has knowledge only a local would know. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.

This is a super one day excursion taking in Derinkuyu Underground City, Ihlara Canyon and Selime Monastery. Bus was nice and comfortable but the tour guides Selim and Huseyin were great as well as they explained everything and were both knowledgeable about the area they were showing. In addition the place we stopped for lunch was very nice and peaceful. Would highly recommend this tour and the two tour guides too.
