    This was an excellent tour! The guide, Tarik, was one of the best I’ve had. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the region and it’s history. This was the perfect tour to see the highlights of Cappadocia at a good pace. I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It felt very luxurious, especially for the price. I did have to reach out to the tour company once I booked, because they were not proactive in contacting me. Also, some of what was conveyed in the tour description was a bit confusing and inaccurate, but we discussed it ahead of time and I hope they’ll update that. For instance, the description made it sound like they would arrange an airport transfer from your hotel in Istanbul. This is not the case. You must get to Cappadocia yourself and the tour services begin once you’re there. Once we got past these initial hurdles though, everything was wonderful.
