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.

This tour of Istanbul and Cappadocia has been amazing. I have felt very taken care of by Metin and his team. My balloon ride was cancelled because of the weather and Metin did everything he could to reschedule so I did it before I left. The accommodation is good and very well located for the tours that will take place. The tour guides have been great and all the staff from Istanbul to Cappadocia have been so helpful! I can’t stop smiling it’s been so great.

My family thouroughly enjoyed ourselves in Turkey. The trip was well organised and I appreciate the efforts that they put in to accommodate our requests and changes to the itinerary. My feedback which I have provided to Mr. Anil was on the Bosphorus cruise which I hope Smart Turkey can improve on to make guests' experience more enjoyable and seamless. Our Cappadocia guide Mr Zeki was excellent. He was considerate, warm, truly genuine and has so much passion in sharing his knowledge with us. Thank you so much. It was overall a truly enjoyable and amazing experience. Thank you Smart Turkey!
