We had a lovely time with our guide, Busra, on our trip to Cappadocia. She was lively and bubbly and conversed with us the entire time we were on our tour. She was very knowledgable about the area and answered all of pur questions graciously. We had originally only budgeted time to visit the underground city and the goreme open air museum, but Busra and the driver were gracious enough to take us around to other areas that we hadn’t heard of, but were equally as beautiful: such as the Pigeon Valley, and Imagination Valley. She also recommended a wonderful lunch place for us where we got to try the pottery Kebab. Not to mention, the driver was very safe and was skilled at traversing the narrow alleys of Urgup. All in all, we highly recommend this tour. You get way more than your money’s worth.
