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.

Overall
An agency that you can trust Our good experience started even before our actual journey and that's because Metin was in constant communications with us and changed our itinerary as requested. As we based our decisions on fellow travellers reviews here so it was a leap of faith that we took as we would have to transfer some deposit to the agency as well and it is a decision that we never have to regret. Itinerary were organised such that we start on average 830am and end around 4 to 5pm and except for days when we have an early flight. No hiccups and transfers were seamless. Van provided was comfortable and clean with safe drivers and as for the tour guides they were all very knowledgeable and patient. Food was a mix of buffet and set menu and we love it. Accommodation were all arranged in good locations eg. Recital Hotel in Istanbul which is literally a stone throw away from the blue mosque and all very modern and clean. I have nil bad comments and I dare to say i will recommend smart turkey tours anytime to anyone who have not decided yet.
