What people are saying about Nevsehir Province

We booked this tour for our anniversary. The tour itself was very nice, the tour guides were wonderful, very well read and knew exactly what to tell us so that we don’t get bored by the activity. We had time for hot air ballooning as well in Cappadocia. That was the most wonderful moment in our trip. The hotels they have us put up in are 3 stars. We judged them between Backpackers comfort Room to a 3 star room. Basic amenities are available and Wifi is ok in most of the places. Istanbul was a walking tour of the old city, we had a day to ourself so we did the whirling dervish show in the evening. The hotel is in the city center very close to Hagia Sofia so don’t have to walk to much. Please note that the drive from either of the airports in. Istanbul ( SAW/IST) can be very long (upto 2.5hours) so cater for that. Cappadocia, Pamukale and Kusadasi along with a few stops here and there over a period of 4 days was a little tiring due to all the walking and the long drive.

An amazing experience, extremely well organised, worth every penny.

I don't know where to start! Everything was extremely well organised. Everyone was very polite, always on time and very pleasant to be with. The local guides were very knowledgeable (and I am an art historian), friendly, polite, genuine. I am a woman in her 60s, I travel solo and never felt lonely or scared. I met wonderful people who shared the same tours. I could not recommend this tour enough. An amazing cultural and human experience.

Selim Ayas was my tour guide and he was such a joy to be with. Traveled solo for my birthday and only had 2 days to explore Cappadocia and he made sure I visited all the historical sites within my Tour. He took incredible photos did not rush me and educated me about the history. Highly recommend Tour!!
