Our driver came very late. We did not make it on time and we missed the first course. Then the waiter accidentally poured wine over my white tshirt and food. He did even not apologize and just disappeared! The food overall was in really bad quality. The waiters were very unprofessional and young. The show is also not worth to watch. We definitely would not recommend to do this trip.

The views are very beautiful and it is true that it lasts the hours it puts from when they pick you up until you arrive at the hotel, the entertainment is fine but although we arrived the first ones we could not choose a place, they assign it to you and if you want to see better or record you can't get up otherwise all right

A boring party. Saves her only belly dance. After the entertainment program, they put on some lingers until we paid and put on Turkish music (1 song).
