Thank you for responding carefully to this request

It took time to exchange the pick-up location (hotel premise). There may be few people going to Cappadocia on a day trip, but I thought that it was easy to understand that the details of the correspondence when it was not a hotel pick-up from the beginning were also included. Also, I was worried that the guide to the airport, which I had given to cos in advance, was not transmitted to the local guide. Other than that, the guide was also a very good person, cos's response was good, and it was very good that this request was fulfilled. Thank you very much.

First of all, the service from the team is really great. The pick-up and delivery from the airport to the hotel and the tour always went smoothly. A very friendly team that responded to special requests and tried to implement them. The guides spoke fluent English, super super friendly. When you are in Cappadocia, it makes a lot of things easier, as it is very well structured and also explained historically. So very, very recommendable and the two days went really well. Always my pleasure. Again, a very big thank you to the team. Thanks alot

Everything was wonderful!! Highly recommended !! The Stoneland Travel company complied with everything and more. Transfers, flights, excursions. The guides were very attentive and knowledgeable about the topics. The hotel they booked for us, Kremer Cavern House, was in the middle of the Capadokya caves (meters from the center) and its owner was very friendly. They were in every detail. It was a pleasure to travel with people as responsible and kind as them. We spent very beautiful days!

Everything was perfectly planned. The timing was perfect too: neither jostling nor losing time. The size of the groups = +/- 15 people was great. The supervision by the managers was very professional and personalized. The visits (Presentation of products) were not too long and not too insistent. Small regret: our hotel was not in the neighborhood troglodype but rather in the center of Göereme

Perfectly organised, big days and a lot to see so pretty tiring, but would do it again.
