What people are saying about Kayseri

Day spent between the nature of the Red valley and the Byzantine churches. Our super knowledgeable and helpful Tolga guide showed us some little pearls off the beaten track. The underground city of Kaymakli was a real surprise, one of the most particular destinations ever visited in my travel experience abroad. Thanks to the help of our guide we were also able to shop in authentic places not frequented by tourists. Tour recommended for those who want to see Cappadocia in a different way and without obligation, as all travel and organization are the responsibility of the guide.

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.

The company had a great private tour organized but more importantly, when the balloon ride was cancelled they worked all day to find us one the next morning. We were very blessed to have them.
