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.

Excellent service to get to know Turkey. Smart Turkey tours was an excellent way to see and get around Turkey. In a country where it isn't easy to communicate, they made everything easy. My father, wife and I were able to plan our tour the way we wanted, going where we wanted and doing what we wanted with ease. Constant communication with out tour organizer, Mustafa, made it a wonderful experience. Timely to a fault! Wonderful cars to get around in, amazing choice of hotels! I highly recommend them for your time in the country!

Turkey surpassed all expectations! What an amazing country, sites and people. We were very pleased with Anil and his Smart Turkey Tours. He tailored our whole program around our requirements which included meeting in-laws. This required several changes and nothing was a problem for him. He was so easily accessible on what’s app and there wasn’t any issues. Every time we were suppose to meet someone they were there waiting for us! All picks ups were on time. All hotels were as described and expected. The only thing that was different was the actual sites which surpassed our expectations! Local tour guides went out of their way (we arranged small group and private tours) and allowed unplanned stops and adapted schedule to what we preferred to do! It’s was really great. Our itinerary included: Istanbul, Cappadocia, Marmaris, Ephesus and Pammakule.

Best Tour Company Ever! My husband and I had a destination wedding in Istanbul. Anil from Smart Turkey Tours went above and beyond to plan day tours of Istanbul as well as an 8 day tour of the West Coast of Turkey for our guests. With 90 guests coming from all over the world, mostly from the United States, Anil did a fantastic job making sure everything went smoothly and everyone was happy. They gave us 5 start experience with unbeatable pricing. Ege, our tour guide, is absolutely amazing. Everyone on the tour is now friends with him and we plan to go tour with Ege again in the future. If you want tour operators who will go above and beyond for you and show you the best of Turkey, go with Smart Turkey Tours.

We thank Smart Turkey team for working out a great trip for our family. Our guide Deniz and our driver is exceptionally amazing. The entire team took great care for our request with every single details including birthday arrangements. However, our last day of the trip wasn't that great, because our guide suddenly changed and the new guide are not all familiar with us. So that change the mood quite a bit. Nevertheless, it's a memorable experience and we forever treasure the journey.
