    Well it was a good experience touring around turkey, i saw alot interesting places , historical and natural, but I didn't like most of the hotels , like some of them is in the middle of no where and some is saying they are 5 stars and there not ! , and i know that the food is nice in turkey but our guide was picking the wrong places to eat and especially when we take a break on the road, didn't give us a lot choices , and some of the places wasn't worth it to visit! like konya!, and there was alot of places we wanted to visit but it wasn't in the program, like the grand buzzar , but the cappducia was the best , and more better was the group i was with , they made this trip worth it , and overall i can give this trip a rate of 60% and the group 200% , but at any rate I recommend this trip ;)

    The tours are well organized, most hotels are good. Our guide Ahmet Seglam (?) Is very knowledgeable, and friendly. Speaks English fluently. Some times we were rushed a bit, but I think he did the best he can to fit everything included in 10 days. Turkey is a fantastic country, I suggest every one must go there at least once, forget the safety issues, you won't regret it.

    We had a fabulous tour. Our guide Askin was excellent and looked after us to ensure we all learned a lot about the history and culture of Turkey. He also saw to our comforts in the hotels which were of a very high standard. I can really recommend this tour and it may be good to even repeat it in a year or twos time to be able to take in the wealth of knowledge and richness of the country.

    Ilker is very knowledgeable and shares his knowledge very well. Very unbiased when explaining religion and history so was easy to understand both sides.
