Terrific way to see the highlights of Turkey

Review for: Highlights of Turkey

The tour was well-organised and interesting. Our tour guide was really a terrific guy and went out of his way to explain everything in detail and offered to take picture for the members of the group when we visited all the sites. We would highly recommend this tour to those wanting to see the highlights of Turkey with a short itinerary. Overall, a really nice experience.

Review for: Turkish Delights

Our guide Ali was very knowledgeable about the history and culture. Hotels were in an excellent location. The highlight of the trip was Pergamum and Konya. The coaches were clean and well maintained. I felt safe with the driver the whole trip. I did take the balloon tour in Cappadocia, and while usually afraid of heights, I felt safe and calm the entire ride. The shopping stops were fine, as we learnt about leather working in Turkey as well as carpet making. However I thought the folk lore dinner and show in Cappadocia could have been missed. As this finished quite early, perhaps an option to drop off in town as the hotel is only a 10 minute walk.

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Hi Tim, Thanks for your review. We will pass on the feedback about the folk lore dinner. Most people quite like this, as it reflects the traditional culture with the whirling dervishes. Glad you enjoyed the rest of the trip. Konya truly is a site to see.
