What people are saying about Tekelli

Simply brutal. It just so happened that our tour was just two people. Me and my husband. We had the guide (Onurcan Koçakoglu) to ourselves. In Spanish as we requested. Super hard, attentive, explained everything and more. All attention was focused on us. It was a wonderful experience. Perfect! We love it.

The tour was amazing, we enjoyed the view of the villages at night with amazing lighting totally different than day view. We visited red valley, 3 rocks, ortahisar, uchisar and ended with a deliciuos dinner. Our driver was Selim, speaks English well, friendly and informative. We enjoyed the tour with him.

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!!
