Erin "Best of Turkey by land is by far my favourite tour to date! Our tour guide Mustafa was extremely knowledgable and went above and beyond to show us his home country. All the hotels were 4/5 stars, the meals were amazing (the buffet in Canakkale was out of this world!) and the bus rides quite comfortable.

    4.0 - Good

    The was brilliantly excellent in terms of itenerary, Guide/ Driver were great, Bus was good but had not wifi (which is bit let down these days), Accomodation was good at few places but can do with better one at others. And airport transfer was only incoming time and not outgoing, which is simply not good having stayed in average 4 star hotel at the beginning and end!

    Turkey is beautiful, the people are friendly and the country is open for tourism. And now is the time to go because prices are down and sites aren't as crowded. Our guide Yavuz Kirikci was informative, helpful and good-natured and our driver Tarik Abi was a good man as well. The accommodations on this tour were the best I've ever had on a tour. There are some long bus rides, but what awaits you at the end of them make them worth the trip. I recommend this tour.

    Best of Turkey by land is by far my favourite tour to date! Our tour guide Mustafa was extremely knowledgable and went above and beyond to show us his home country. All the hotels were 4/5 stars, the meals were amazing (the buffet in Canakkale was out of this world!) and the bus rides quite comfortable. If you are tossing up between the gulet and the land - pick the land, you get to see turtles, go mud bathing and have the option of paragliding! My highlights were seeing the blue mosque, hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, bathing in Pamukkale and paragliding over the blue lagoon in Oludeniz. If you have any hesitations don't - Turkey is such an amazing country and one of my favourite to date!

    Always wanted to visit Turkey but kept on delaying it until now, amazing destination , Istanbul is an interesting city, loved Kusadasi and Fethiye, Ephesus is an amazing historical Roman city. Our guide Yavuz was excellent, full of information and somewhat good sense of humour had good accommodation, clean and comfortable rooms. Would recommend it.
