Food was wonderful and Turan was very good at encouraging our boys to eat local turkish food.Special mention for Ibo our driver who was always friendly and willing to help. The cook Adam on our camping trip was great and got involved with playing cards with the boys.Turan our guide provided excellent information, knowledgeable and well educated.Itinerary offer a variety of activities. Our boys are 9 and 11. Only downside was the boys not being able to dash off on their horses at top speed. Their highlights are as follows:9 year old - camping, horse-riding. My nine year complained about walking and views (but he would rather be playing football and rugby!!)11 year old - walking, horse-riding, Turkish bath and hot air ballooning. Adults - exceeded all expectations.

Tuna Ozdemir is an excellent guide. He is very careful with all arrangements; He is extremely knowledgeable about trekking and the archaeological heritage of the area, which enriched all our travels. He knows the mountain passes so well, trekking is pleasant and never an effort or a rush. Tuna also kindly altered the plans to allow us to see the lovely Ihlara valley and a fascinating museum in Kayseri. Tuna arranged for us to go hot-ballooning too. Tuna has a dry humour that we all appreciated and a genuine love of the mountains that we shared.
All amenities were excellent. Very nice hotel in Cappadocia. Beautiful location for camping sites.
