The ride was very pleasant, a new modern vehicle. The guide was very experienced and could tell a lot. Special requests are catered for. Lunch was delicious too and the restaurant was right on a river. If you are looking for an excursion without crowded buses and unpleasant bazaars, this is the right tour for you.

It was a nice experience. To see the old town in side and the waterfall. We stopped at jewelers and a factory where they make sweets. We could have done without these 2 stops as it was boring and expensive. But the trip as a whole was nice.

We had a lot of fun and felt very comfortable with our guides Mehmet, Engin and driver Adem. Nothing was forced and we saw a lot. Absolute recommendation, thank you for the nice day :)

It was an interesting and a very pleasant trip. The lunch was good and the guide was professional and very attentive to tourists.

It was a great day thank you so much to our guide Mahmet, he was very good and knowledgeable and looked after us all on the trip
