Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip! All the people, guides, hotel staff, drivers and travelers were outstanding. Turkey is an amazing country and felt like we were fortunate to see as much of the country as we did. Loved your concept of traveling and wished we could travel like that everywhere. Our next trip is going to France and am wondering if you know of a travel company like yours, that organizes tours the way you do. If so, would appreciate your information. Thanks again for a wonderful trip!
We are back home and we were most satisfied with our tour in Turkey that you arranged for us. The guides were very well informed and also great company. We were very impressed with every thing that we saw and did. There were so many high lights that it is impossible to name any one in particular. We found the hotel in Istanbul most comfortable and the staff very caring and helpful. We were pleased that it was so convenient to every where for as I mentioned John has a mobility issue so we were able to get around easily. Istanbul is one of the great cities of the world that we have visited and we very much hope to return there. We found the Turkish people to be so kind and helpful, starting with yourself, and friendly and fun.
Thank you and your staff for making our trip such a wonderful experience.
It is hard today to think that the lunar landscape of Central Anatolia, indeed Cappadocia, was a major point of trade, defence, political and religious influence.
More so, while the Hittites, Persians, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans, have all come and gone with the winds of time, the one enduring sight of the Cappadocia region remains: its lunar landscape.
The Unique Landscape of Cappadocia
The area is famous for its rock formations and fairy-like chimneys that tower over the landscape like latter day wind farms – silently, chillingly, still.
Over thousands of years, the elements has eroded layers of volcanic ash formed by the volcanoes of the local Erciyes, Hasan and Melendiz mountain ranges to form today’s landscape.
When a hard piece of basalt forms on top of a layer of ash, the surrounding ash eventually erodes away but the section under the basalt is protected, leaving behind a conical rock structure with a cap.Read More
Travellers will be struck by the many attractions as they wind their way through Turkey but one memory they can take away and sample is Turkish Delight.
Turkish Delight, a sweet aromatic mass of sweet, is as much a byword of the country as is French wine, Dutch Tulips and Swiss chocolate.
The unlocked flavours when you bite into a Delight are as exotic as a trip through the back alleys of Istanbul.Read More
