What people are saying about Bursa

The trip was quite good but too long. We spent most of the time picking up people from the hotel and wasted quite a amount of time. The guide Muhammed from Syria was super friendly he explained about the trip as much as possible. The places visited was good we covered the 600 years old tree in bursa and we visited the uludag mountain but sadly the cable car was closed because of strong wind. The food offered by them was not as appealing but was eatable. Over all the trip was a long trip and the guide was super friendly and the travel was enjoyable.
