Contact was not made immediately after the booking was made. I was only informed at 7.15 p.m. the evening before that the trip would start at my hotel at 9.15 a.m. The theater of Selge was worth seeing, as were the veiden bridges. In the Taurus Mountains a beautiful, green landscape was to be admired. That the English-speaking driver and guide was the cook at the same time and that the fish were caught and prepared in our presence was not everyone's business. Against the background of the bad weather, I would have wished for a heated place to eat. Suggestion to include the historical city of Lybre / Seleukia in your program

It was a unique experience, a big compliment to the German-speaking guide who told us a lot about the country during the bus ride & at the individual stations. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see & learn about this country. A big compliment to the bus driver who picked us up and brought us back to the hotel, thank you very much.

Great trip, lots of nice impressions. Even a flat tire was dismissed as normal in the mountains, the problem was solved in no time, is totally understandable in the stony area!
