It was very informative, you saw a lot. "Achim" was a very funny tour guide. Was a lot of fun with him. Very nice places seen and enough bathing time. Drinks Cola, Fanta 2€, beer 4€ everything within reason. No imposition of extra services. Everything is great, that's how I wish every tour. Thanks :)

We really enjoyed the trip! You could look around at the individual stations on your own, or you could also contact the guide Ahmet. Ahmet entertained us very well and explained everything great. The boat trip was the highlight of the tour and was a lot of fun. Lunch was also very delicious. We can only report good things about the tour! We were completely satisfied! If you want to get to know the country and its people, this is the right tour for you. In the convertible bus, the wind blows through your face! :)

It was a very nice trip, we learned a lot of interesting things about Turkey from our guide during the bus ride to the individual stations. The boat ride was also very funny, we laughed a lot with our guide during the whole trip. Lunch was also great, you could choose between 1x large chicken skewer or 1x fish, as side dishes there were salads, noodles and rice, of which you could take as much as you wanted.
