Hamam

Well, the ritual is simple. You will find yourself in the warm Hamam ,a room filled with the sound of splashing water, the scent of soap, and wafting steam through which daily concerns and worries cannot penetrate. In the gentle moist heat your body relaxes, and your nerves are soothed. You sit down at one of the marble wash basins which line the walls, and adjusting the temperature of the water to a delicious warmth, dip the copper bathing bowl into the basin and tip the water over your head and body. Waves of relaxation seem to pour right through you as the water envelops your body.

Laying on the warm stone in the center of the room, your attendant will pour hot water on you and begin to scrub every square inch of your body. Basically, every millimeter of dead and dirty skin is scrubbed off, even the skin between your fingers and toes.Then you are given fresh towels and again brought to Sogukluk (the cool room) to rest, dry off and marvel at your glowing, soft as a baby’s skin.

Our Awesome Turkish Experience Smart Turkey was recommended by a friend and was I glad she did. We had a wonderful and awesome vacation in Turkey. We graciously thanked Anil for the fabulous itinerary and planning and his prompt response to our enquiries thru whatsapp. We also like to thank his team, Gokhan, Irman, Daniel, Zikie and Kenan for guiding us during our tours at Istanbul, Kusadasi and Cappadoccia. Our special appreciation and big thank you especially to Zikie for being very accomodating and giving us options during our tour in Cappadoccia. We enjoyed our accomodation at various hotels arranged especially Recital hotel at Istanbul. The location was perfect and staff was helpful especially Unal. Their breakfast spread was heavenly. Our domestic air travels were well organize and we love our first experience with Turkish Airline. The meals were good throughout our tour except for one at Pammukale where we found the buffet to be slightly cold and not freshly prepared. Overall....we really did have a good time in Turkey and already planning another visit next year and surely we will.contact Anil and his team again. Best Wishes Sharifah, Nazir and Hashimah

A memorable experience Kudos to Metin who has the trust in us and we, him. We initially only paid the deposit and full payment was only made when we were already half-way around the country. Although all the tours we booked were by different guides, the planning & timing was almost perfect; no hiccups. All the hotels were comfortable, especially Heaven Cave House, we loved it. But the one thing that touched us was when the hot-air balloon was open for the flights (it was grounded for almost a week), Metin immediately contacted us. Our actual booking was for the next day early morning flght. (that flight was also cancelled due to weather condition). And now we have our balloon pilot's license ;-). Good service & dedicated . Thank you, Metin Thank You Smart Turkey Tours Regards from Saleh & Faridah (Singapore, January 2019)
