The best tour I have ever done!

Review for: Turkish Delights - Friday Departures

The best tour I have ever done! Our tourist guide and driver were both so nice courteous and friendly. Yusuf our toirist guy was so knowledgeable and professional. We visited many cities, he provided us with a brief of what we were going to be doing during our 7 day tour the first day we arrived. From 4-5 star hotels, hiking, visiting museums, sightseeing and hot air balloon adventures... it was all wonderful and something I would definitely recommend for anyone to experience. I'm in love with Turkey and the beauty that's there.
