All our expectations for a good trip are matched☺️. The guide is super nice and helpful with informative and professional introductions; the price is ecnomic; the tour itinerary is well-designed, safe and covered most of the attraction spots; the lunch is good as well!! Highly recommend for everyone.

Overall it was really good. Got to see many highlights in one day. Few suggestions: The duration in the carpet and pottery place could be made less. And the time in the göreme open air museum should be more to explore. Also the food was very average.

Overall good. Pick up was on time. Lunch in the cave restaurant was quite good. Time spent at each destinations could've been reduced as it was extremely hot (it was unpleasant even while inside the AC-ed car) and everyone was getting exhausted. Would've wanted to hear more fascinating facts and stories, but it's nonetheless an amazing value for money at this price point (especially with lunch included).
