An excellent tour and very good value

This was a tour we chose only a few days before we arrived in Belek, Antalya, from where we started the tour. The pickup at our hotel was very prompt, within 10 minutes of the given time. Whilst the majority of the tour party (25 people) were Russians, the guide, Vadim, who spoke to them fluently, was also reasonably acceptable in English, so we were not left out of any conversation. He organised all the tours to all the sites very well, with enough time everywhere. He also organised the balloon trip for us, which was the highlight of our tour in Turkey. The mini-coach which transported us was reasonable, and with enough stops it did not feel like a long journey (550 km each way). The driver, Mustapha, was very competent, and we did not feel any risk. All in all, a very good 2-day tour. We felt somewhat tired at the end, but not exhausted. Well worth it for the experience.

Great trip

Dissappointed with the "air-conditioned" bus that collected us, seats were small and not very comfortable, however being a party of 14 plus 2 guides and driver a small group had its advantage. No waiting around too long as in a larger group etc. Paid for 2 lunches extra which were "interesting" but not worth the money (take a packed lunch if you can) and entry to museums was worth it. Plenty of stops on the way for comfort breaks and visited areas in Cappaodicia were excellent. The guide did very well conversing in four languages and as the only 2 of the party that were from the UK we did not feel left out. The hotel for the night was of a good standard and we chose to go by taxi the following day to see the balloons launch. The taxi that took us had a cracked windscreen and we felt over-charged for the service-6 of us crammed in to a 4 seater and paid 130TL each for the privilege. Could have done without trips to factories. Despite overall trip was good value and I would do again.

Good but improvements needed

Firstly we were given the wrong wake up time. Despite having an email, the app and a phone call the night before. We were needed 1 hour earlier then told. The coach and journey was fine, plenty of stops for the toilet and to stretch your legs. Underground city was interesting. Pigeon valley was nice to see but lunch was a little rushed. Definitely needed more time at the Uçhisar castle to explore and climb to the top. Hot air balloon didn’t happen due to weather, although other companies did go up. Think more emphasis/warning about this as this was the sole reason for the trip. Was especially frustrating to see other companies had gone up that morning. Visit to leather factory and onyx were a waste of time and would have much rather more time at the castle the day before. Hotel was lovely but didn’t stay in area listed. Lunch on the return journey wasn’t the best as no options for vegetarian- just salad which was the same price as meat. Overall good trip.
