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.

Fantastic Guys My family of 4 joined the Smart Turkey Tour where Anil helped us with our tour itinerary. To deal with Anil was a bliss. We made several changes to our itinerary and he was always helpful in his responses and showed no sign of being annoyance. He had never failed to reply to all our emails . He cleared our doubts and helped to resolve them to our full satisfaction. He even suggested alternative plan if he feels that could save us some money. He put us at ease with the tour arrangement and we felt very assured that he was always there should we encounter any problem. When we whatsapp him, he replied and when we called him, he answered. It was defintely a blessing to have him when we were in a foreign land. He dealt matters patiently and in a very professional manner that make us felt we were in good hands and well taken of. No issues with the Hot Air Balloon in Capadacio. Anil explained to us his predicament when dealing with the operator and we understood the difficulties he faced with them. With his guidance, we managed to contact the Operator directly and got the confirmation without any fuss. On the last day of our tour, at Izmir airport before we departed to Istanbul, my son realized he had left his jacket in the hotel room wardrobe. Immediately we called Anil and he made all arrangements to courier to our hotel in Istanbul . He even called up the hotel reception and trying to make arrangements to pay for the courier fee ( that was not even his fault ). We were very touched by his kind gesture. Not forgetting to mention our tour guides, Deniz of Ephesus sector and Olsen (if I name him correctly) of Capadacio sector . They were fantastic guys. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and obliging to our needs. Both, always have a smile on their faces. Our overall experience with Smart Turkey Tour is unforgettable and amazing . We love it. If you are looking for an honest and reliable agency, look for Anil from SMART TURKEY TOUR, the Best and Outstanding Service Provider.

Excellent experience. We have just returned from our Turkey tour with SMART TURKEY TOURS. We travel a lot, but that was our first tour since coronavirus. Due to the pandemic our planing required a lot of flexibility with airlines, hotels and local tours on our as well as on the touring company part. Also the plans had to be adjusted as we were progressing, especially due to the fact that members of our group were coming from different countries. We had a great experience with this company as well as with their rep. Mehmet Metin Kirca and all three local guides. We spent 8 days in Turkey visiting Istanbul, Cappadocia ,Kusadasi and Effes. Social distancing was practiced at the airports, restaurants (great food !!!) and during the trips like horse riding and hot air ballooning (the very highlight!!!) in beautiful Cappadocia. We very highly recommend Smart Turkey Tours and trip too Turkey now.

Great Private Tour service I was in contact with a lot of travel agencies based in Turkey since August (I think) to check on the best package and rates that we'll book for our trip. Out of all the agencies and agents, Metin is the most responsive and accommodating. We booked a private tour for four guests in Pamukkale, Ephesus, and Cappadocia. We compared the rates and Smart Turkey Tour offered the cheapest, but the service was excellent. We had the friendliest drivers and the best tour guides; Gokche and Zike. Zike even surprised me on my birthday, when we were having our lunch he talked to the staff of the restaurant and after a few minutes one staff was carrying a cake for me. It was a very memorable trip, we didn't get to ride the hot air balloon because it was cancelled when we were in Cappadocia but the trip was a good experience in Turkey.

Wonderful Trips and Excellent Services We just had our company's customized 7-day Turkey trip with Smart Turkey Tour (STT) covering Istanbul, Cappadocia and Pamukkale. Prior to the trip, I worked with Mr Metin of STT who had diligently delivered top-notch service and provided me insightful tips in planning the itinerary. Mr Metin was very prompt and helpful in answering all my queries and he ensured that the activities will be exciting and enjoyable for us. The accomodation provided to us were very comfortable and convenient. The meals arranged for us were sumptious and accurately reflected the local tastes and flavours that we seeked for when in Turkey. We communicated simply through WhatsApp messaging and the bookings of the hotels and places of interest were made amazingly easy. Mr Selçuk Kaya was our designated tour guide. He was able to connect and communicate with us very well with his impeccable English. While conducting the tour, he had also keenly listened to our feedback and suggestions on the tour agenda as we progressed. He was certainly a very flexible tour guide who was smartly able to balance what he wanted to show and tell us about Turkey against our capacity and stamina to see and absorb the information about the places we visited. He was able to conduct the tour punctually and in a very disciplined yet tactful way by reining in our oft time desires to go off track in our photo taking and shopping. As the organizer of our company trip, I'm very pleased that my boss and colleagues had a great time and they were all very happy and satisfied with my choice of STT. For Mr Selcuk, we have nothing but high praises for him, with big thumbs up from all the 14 of us. I'm certain this trip would not have been as enjoyable if he were not with us. I highly recommend STT, and especially Mr Selçuk, to our friends and family who would want to have their holiday in Turkey.

Istanbul was wonderful although couldn't see a lot of the Blue Mosque and other buildings as a lot of renovations were being done. Loved The Pudding Shop which was where I had lunch with my guide Nesha. Incidently, I was the only person on this tour. I actually arrived a day or two before my tour began, so made the most of wandering around this busy city. Visited the Sandwich Fish Boats which was great. Grand Bazaar, and many other places. Be warned about the guys who consistently try to entice you to visit their rug shops. Darn annoying. The Recital hotel where I stayed was great. Lovely people there. Kusadasi was beautiful. Enjoyed my trip to Ephesus, although it was a long day. Visited the other sites, Pumakkale etc but Ephesus was my favourite. Flew to Cappadocia and stayed for three nights and the early morning balloon trip was the highlight of my trip. I would definitely recommend it. The accommodation there was great. Thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Turkey and would recommend Smart Turkey Tours. My tour was reasonably priced and the meals were very good.
