What people are saying about Tekelli

Thank you for responding carefully to this request

It took time to exchange the pick-up location (hotel premise). There may be few people going to Cappadocia on a day trip, but I thought that it was easy to understand that the details of the correspondence when it was not a hotel pick-up from the beginning were also included. Also, I was worried that the guide to the airport, which I had given to cos in advance, was not transmitted to the local guide. Other than that, the guide was also a very good person, cos's response was good, and it was very good that this request was fulfilled. Thank you very much.
