HIGHLIGHTS OF TURKEY August 2016

Highlights of Turkey

A very interesting trip, especially for those with a fascination for anciant sites as it covers quite a few. Extensive travelling interspered with stops of interest so cannot really be considered "leisurely" in the fact that there isn't very much actual free time. However, gives a good general overview of Turkey and its quite complicated history.
Obviously Cappadocia which was more extensive than I imagined and quite mind blowing.
The peace and serenity at Teremossos compared to the frantic activity at Ephesus.
 Arriving at Assos harbour as the sun set.
The tour of Gallipoli - very moving.

Gorkhan was great. Very charming as well as good looking but also knowledgeable about every site we visited but who also understood when we wanted some quiet time on the coach.

Be prepared for extensive tavelling. Read up on the sites you are likely to visit before the holiday (if you have an interest) as it is hard to assimilate all the information on site and a little background knowledge would go a long way to adding to your enjoyment.
Do try the hamam in Selcuk (or any other place). It was quite an experience!
Try to stay a few more days in Istanbul at the end of the trip to visit the places you didn't get around to and just to enjoy exploring - it's a grat city.

The trip has certainly given me the desire to go back to Turkey to explore further afield. So perhaps another trip is in order when the funds allow.

absolutely amazing trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
seeing and walking the ruins.
 

Arzu was FANTASTIC!!!!! She was great! Knew what she was talking about, very knowledgable, inspiring, and i would love to take another trip with her!

Do everything offered!! Even the small, little side things that didnt seem important were!!

The driver, Mustafa was excellent!!
The hot air balloon ride was phenomenal!! And the driver was amazing!!!! 29 years experience made me feel soo safe!!
I thought the last night may have been a little more special, instead of a smoky, loud bar, and i couldnt talk to anyone.
In Celcuk, the Hitit hotel was TERRIBLE!!!!!!!! Worst hotel We staying in, by far!!! Dirty sheets, birds nest outside the window, no fire precautions, bathroom door didnt shut, nor did the toilet flush.. 
other than that, i had a GREAT time!!

This was an incredible trip and our guide Zafar made it so. He was extremely knowledgeable about Turkish history and was able to impart it in a very interesting way. His sense of humour and the stories he was able to tell about life and events in history made it come alive.he willingly arranged group suppers for us every night of the trip and we were able to have amazing culinary experiences we would not have had otherwise. The scenery and the variety of experiences meant we were never bored.
Several. The hot air ballon ride, the underground cities, the amphitheatres.......

Extremely good. In addition to faithfully following the itinerary,he went out of his way to take us places that were not on the the itinerary but were well worth seeing. He would patiently translate for us in restaurants and elsewhere, not an easy job in a larger group. He was always a gentleman and was very helpful if someone needed to find a pharmacy, buy stamps and other little incidentals. His knowledge was incredible. Exodus is lucky to have him as a guide.

If you plan to take this trip, try to get Zafar as a guide. I have already told this to several friends who are considering a visit to Turkey as a result of talking to me about my trip.

This trip allows you to see a fair amout of Turkey and most of the main sites in 14 days.  All the sites visited were well worth seeing and I wasn't disappointed by any of them.  I now wish I had time to see the rest of the country.
All the areas visited were interesting but I particularly liked the Cappadocia area and the underground city at Derinkuyu was amazing.
The story of Troy is one of the most well known and it was great to see the place after much imagining. 
Istanbul is a great city and you could easily spend more time there.

Kiymet our tour leader was very knowlegable and informative.  She ensured that the trip ran smoothly and made time for everyone. Excellent.

Think about when to go. It was pretty hot at times and, for me, if it had been any hotter visiting some of the sites would not have been as enjoyable.
If you use the laundry service provided by the hotel at Antalya be careful, they obviously wash all colours together and some of my clothes came back prety grey.

Great trip, well worth going on.

The trip was a very informative and enjoyable one. What made also  this 14 days thrip so enjoyable was an exelent guide and a very good driver plus the group( age 24years to 72) were superb.
Istanbul was exiting, Cappadocia ,Efesus and all the Sites were wonderful to visit. It is fantastic to see how much has been excavated. We were in Efesus 30 years ago and it is amazing how  much has been uncovered since then.  

Arzu Tutuk was our group leader. She is a first class leader, very knowledgeable,took great care of everyone and always happy.  Mustafa Akdag, our driver did also a very good job driving us  savely these 3500km!

This is our first trip with Exodus and all the informations we got from them were good. If one reads their instructions well before taking off one will be save with them. One advice is: Always wake up every morning in a good mood knowing that that the day will be an exciting one and forget beeing grumpy about small things ect. and your day will be a wonderful one!! Have a nice trip with Exodus!! 

Enjoy yourself!
