Sandra Delaney

This tour was fantastic! Turkey is such a wonderful and friendly country! Happy that I saw a lot of it. Mustafa was the best guide, we learned so many things and the group bounded a lot thanks to him. He goes the extra miles to make his ”dear guests” happy. He even speaks a little bit of french…The week on the gulet in the middle of the tour was a blast. Captain Sadik and his team were great. No shoes, no watch, just swim, dive, eat (great chef), drink, sleep a little and be happy! Then we joined another group for the rest of the tour. All was well organized, transportation and hotels were great. Surely will go back to Turkey! I strongly recommend this tour, plus it was a brain rest not to ear about covid and the war for a while.
