Hamam

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.

I travelled to many countries and use to book my own keeping that in mind that tour operators are cheaters and they don’t provide what they promised. But Smart Turkey changed my mind, they are really amazing, from the day 1 we land till our return flight, they were in touch with us to provide all travel details ( pick / drop from the hotel for daily tour) with guide name. Suggested good hotels to explore the local market without hassles. Mr.Metin, our tour manager was supported like a brother to me .. he was really good and giving 5 stars for a fabulous service and strongly recommend to others as well. Attached some pix from our tour.

Smart tours.. Smartly planned Overall an awesome experience. Especially the balloon ride in cappadocia,If anil was not prompt enough to warn us about weather conditions and ask us to take the ride a day early We would have missed the event as it was cancelled the next day. The whole trip was value for money. Only wish the accommodation though centrally located wasn't as cramped. Found the rooms very small. Smart turkey tours planned and executed perfect holiday for us and everything went on smooth
