The beautiful monastery, however I was a little disappointed because I thought we could see the whole monastery, however we could only see the part that is open, that is, the one that is not covered. Everything that is roofed cannot be seen. I don't know if it's because it's dangerous or because what you see on the outside is just a façade and what used to be inside no longer exists. There is also no way to photograph it from the outside as it appears on the internet, unless you have a drone and they let you take photos with it.

Chose the perfect day for this tour. It was good sunny weather. The Monastery is beautiful and the drive up the mountains to reach it is pretty as well. We had lunch at a restaurant with a good view of the mountains and delicious food. The glass lookout was a fun stop and the cave was cool. I didn't like the rice pudding but loved the small homey restaurant with the warm stove. I enjoyed this tour and recommend it.

I was impressed by the whole trip which led me to book again with them. Even when I left Trabzon I kept dealing with them. Mainly the best guide ever BURAK. He is so cooperating and made me holiday. I recommend anybody to have this lovely experience!

It was a pleasant trip. A good opportunity to explore the area. Uzungöl is a good place to eat and shop and the views are beautiful. On the way you can see from the car how people live.

The activity was perfect, the guide spoke perfect English and he was super nice. La Cie also helped us a lot and she was super available for our questions. We recommend.
