What people are saying about Tekelli

Everything was perfectly planned. The timing was perfect too: neither jostling nor losing time. The size of the groups = +/- 15 people was great. The supervision by the managers was very professional and personalized. The visits (Presentation of products) were not too long and not too insistent. Small regret: our hotel was not in the neighborhood troglodype but rather in the center of Göereme

In general a good tour but they should exclude the part where they take you to the leather, carpet and ceramic factories because they always want to sell you everything and that is very unpleasant

Highly recommended, it allows you to visit most of the places of interest in a single day, in addition, Ayse, our guide is wonderful, she explained everything clearly.

Excellent service provided by the local agency. Quality, punctuality and professionalism! It far exceeded expectations and I highly recommend it. Thanks!

Good organization, positive guide, lots of interesting information
