1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

From the moment we met the whole trip was amazing. We got real insight into how Turkish people live in the villages as well as time on the coast. The final day on the boat was the icing on the cake. The trip was great value for money and the food was excellent. Our guide Zenyep was highly organised, fun and made the trip so memorable...she even taught us some Turkish. The only downside was that we had to go home!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I would highly recommend this trip. Some of the walks were challenging so needed a good level of fitness but the scenery blew us away. There was a real range of accommodation but all was really comfortable.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

This trip really supported local businesses especially in the villages. They produced the most amazing food made from locally grown ingredients.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Exceptional!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The food, from local families at the homestays, from the street providers in the small towns we walked to/through, and from the restaurants/cafes in the larger towns like Kas and Patara. The food experience was matched, (and probably enhanced) by some spectacular walking, and an introduction to the Lycian civilization and their legacies. A vibrant and enthusiastic guide and a great group of like minded walkers also added to the overall experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Some of the walking is tough (and hot) so come prepared with the appropriate walking gear, - the rewards far outweigh the efforts though. Pack an open mind and indulge in as many aspects of the Turkish culture that you can.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local guides and transport were used and accommodation and meals were provided by local families or locally run businesses

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, - a fabulous introduction at grass roots level, to much of what Turkey has to offer.
