We love the tour. Everything was fulfilled to the letter. Our guide speaks perfect Spanish, and showed a lot of knowledge what he shared with us. The hotel facing the sea, at night in Kusadasi was a pleasant surprise, the night view of the bay. And the company also helped us to make our trip to Capadoccia. We all loved it. Transportation in luxury vans. The only bad thing (and repetitive in all tours of the world), is that they make you waste time in shopping places, which are not historical and they want to force you.

It was a great day! Our tour guide, Fatima was super knowledgable, personable, and a joy to tour with. She took our group to a great authentic Turkish restaurant. We asked her to help us make arrangements to get back to airport the next day & without hesitation said sure! After the tour that day, it was more than a tour, we made a friend!

1. Excellent communication beforehand. 2. New modern and comfortable bus. 3. Very knowledgeable and experienced tour guide. Could speak English very well, as well as Spanish, and w/ a 5-year degree in this discipline. 4. Very economical, at less than half the price compared to the same tour offered through the cruise company.
