    4.5 - Excellent

    Great tour which covered a lot of ground and of necessity had a lot of travel days. Accommodation varied from good to basic, reflecting the rating of the trip, but offered at minimum a clean, comfortable bed. This is not a luxury tour, but offers some unique experiences; sleeping under the stars at a homestay, a balloon ride over Goreme, the astonishing Mount Nemrut. As the tour is Basix rated you will need to budget for most meals and excursions as these are not included. Our guide Suleyman was knowledgable and helpful and really made the trip special.

    4.5 - Excellent

    Not into tours , let down/ soured a long time ago. Personal reasons meant i had to do some tours on the 2018 7 month adventure. I have been pleasantly surprised on the 3 undertaken so far. Explore Turkey was the best so far as the country/ itinerary has much more to offer than Jordan or Israel or the other 7 countries i have visited. Outstanding guide , knowledgeable , organised , loves his country. Usual free meals for him at selected restaurants , but never to the groups disadvantage

    The guide was excellent and our group size was perfect (only 3 people). A perfect tour to take a peek of the eastern part of Turkey.
