We love Turkey. You will, too.

"It was marvelous.

We went to Safranbolu, Ankara , Goreme et al, Konya , Pamukkale, Selchuk, Assos, Tekirdag in eight days. Cengiz was fantastic; an excellent driver, conservative but made good time. He is superb at finding the good boutiqe hotels which make the trip unique and he is equally good at finding the good kebap restaurants in the many small towns where you need to stop for lunch. You know how congenial a companion he is, he was our driver, guide and full member of our party. The vehicle was very comfortable. It would seat 7; three on each seat in the back and one upfront with Cengiz. We had five which was a little more comfortable and left more room for luggage which as you know tends to grow as one travels across Turkey . We would like to come for the 45th, but need to go to Phoenix for a nephews wedding earlier in the month so will have to see."
