The perge-aspendos-side tour was very good. They were very punctual and showed up on time. We loved the history of those places and its very difficult to do all of them without a car and without a guide. The tour offered us everything and the small group was very friendly. Ismail shared valuable information with us, would definitely recommend it.
I loved this tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and there was a good combination of his expertise and some time to ourselves in each place. He was an expert on the region. Lunch was lovely and they even made me a special vegetarian meal even though I hadn’t expected this or requested it. I would highly recommend this tour company.
