What people are saying about Tekelli

We booked two weeks in advance of departure and being able to rely on a tour made organization very easy. Having all transportation / travel included fostered a stress-free experience. On the other hand, many stages included in the tour did not include a real visit but a few minutes' descent from the vehicle to take photos (it was not specified in the description). Very nice to be in a group with people from all over the world (tour and guide in English). Very nice experience.

For this tour it would have been better 5 days and not 4, 2 days in istanbul and 3 in cappadocia. In fact due to the time of the flight to Cappadocia (organized by them), we could not finish the one day tour in istanbul, missing the blue mosque and the graan bazar. The guides are all very good and kind. They always answered immediately on whatsapp as soon as I had a doubt. A few details had to be better organized but all in all a nice tour.

Highly recommended

Excellent organization, comfortable vehicles and competent guide. Definitely to do to optimize the time to get to know Cappadocia better.
