“Discovery of Turkey”

It was long time in Turkey, we returned two weeks before. I loved the turkish people, have had a hard year tourist-wise so it was a pleasure to travel in Turkey and talk to people, we had a wonderful & charming guide Mustafa in Istanbul, Husnu in Cappadocia, Musa in Ephesus and Pamukkale, İhsan in Gallipoli. Whe had a great experience about Turkey, We had spend 17 days in Turkey, in such a beautiful county. From beginning to end of the whole 17 days we had fun with the tour guides, they made the days funny and enjoyable. I highly recommend this package if you have this much time for Turkey.
