Turkey-Greek Islands Tour We just come back from an amazing trip that Metin planned carefully for us, he is great communicating trough Whattsapp and during our trip he was always available for any questions or concern, we visited Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus, Pamukkale, then we took a cruise to visit the Greek Islands, our guides were amazing! very knowledgable and accommodating,big thanks to Atakan, Zikie, Deniz, Octavius for their time and fun time we had, we enjoyed every day of this tour, the accommodations and food are very good, except for the buffet in Pamukkale but besides that everything was great, our hot balloon ride was canceled 2 days in a row because the government control the flights according to weather conditions so be prepared for that, but for the sake of our safety it was better. We loved Turkey! We are planning to come back next year to visit the rest of the country, Turkey is the biggest museum in the world! so much history and beauty! I highly recommend Smart Turkey Tours for if you are thinking about visiting Turkey.
