What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

It was ALL excellent, but if I had to pick out one thing, it was being the first people at Ephesus just after dawn, meaning the streets were silent and we could breathe in the atmosphere and watch the sun come up before the masses arrived! However, it really is hard to pick just one highlight!

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Simply excellent. The best we've had on any tour, including Explore and any of its competitors.

Marvelling at the amazing rock formations in Cappadocia and walking through the Red Valley; floating above the Fairy Chimneys in a hot air balloon; drifting past the rock tombs in Dalyan; going at our own pace in Ephesus; Seeing the local way of life in Istanbul's backstreets as well as the tourist sights; having a knowledgeable guide and a safe driver. Advice: you're only a solo traveller before you join the group; when you've met your group it becomes a holiday with friends!! (DTU- 29th May 2010)

What a grand adventure! Our wonderful guide said it was a new trip, Ankara to Istanbul. Every day was a joy- the highlights being the ancient art city of Aphrodesia, and the fascinating cave churches of Cappadocia. There was magic in our little blue bus with 13 travellers- it seemed able to change shape and size as we slipped down narrow streets and up mountain roads, often arriving at sites with no one else around. April is a fine time to go- warm, sunny, tulips blooming everywhere, no crowds. Being western Canadians, we thought we were friendly, but the Turks are a delight, good-natured and full of fun. Some fellow travellers were on their sixth and seventh Explore tours, one on his twenty-ninth! Advice- don't hesitate! (DTU- 3rd April 2010)
