I had a fabulous time on this tour! Yavuz was very organised, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He made travelling in an unfamiliar country/culture very safe. The hotels, meals and service provided was outstanding. The meals included were also fabulous and this(as well as the high standard of hotels) made the tour excellent value for money. The drivers were professional, friendly and very safe. All in all, a fabulous week.
