Transfer from the airport was wonderful and one less thing to organise. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful in making other suggestions of where to go and what to do in the area. Sibel, the guide happily stopped at a shop for us to try some local sweets etc. We stopped at a pottery and rug manufacturer to observe the process, it was very much obligation free and quite interesting. It did feel like you spent a lot of time just cruising back and forth (in a very comfortable van) across Cappadocia. I think this tour could be compressed into 1 day although there is perhaps not much else to do in the area. The overnight accommodation (Lykia lodge) far exceeded our expectations and the food provided was excellent. The hotel breakfast was one the best I had in 7wks throughout Europe. They had a pool which was great to come back to fill in a bit of time. Plus the grounds keeper had a puppy! We additionally booked the hot air balloon option and paid for the 1.5hrs with breakfast and a small group. However, we were bunched with the cheaper option of 45-60mins, no breakfast, 20 ppl per basket. Viator has not responded to my multiple emails and submissions via their website which has marred my memories and lightened my bank balance.
Both days guides were very different personalities but both were absolutely fantastic. Maria was very knowledgeable and even offered me her jacket at the western point. She also repeated everything in german. ?Alex was very relaxed, fun and happy to make chsnges as the group desired.
