Reviews for Turkey history tours, small group


review 28 Sep 2019

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

It is so hard to choose just one memorable part of the holiday! It was amazing from start to finish. Being often the only group visiting these amazing sites was definitely a real highlight. One of the best was being almost the only visitors to the Temple of Zeus at Euromos was a stunning moment with the sun starting to set over picturesque ruins and watching the site workers moving massive columns into place.

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

Be prepared for full days with lots of different site visits. Take at least one pair of long trousers and shoes for the more remote of the sites. If you can, arrive a night before to have time to acclimatise in Dalyan and stay an extra night or two at the end of the tour so you have time to see a bit more of Fethiye.

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

Staying in the smaller, often family-run hotels, felt like it was benefiting local tourism and not the big companies and resorts. Staying in hotels in the centre of towns meant that we were able to use local restaurants (often recommended by our guide) and local shops too.The trip to the Dekamer Turtle hospital was an excellent chance to support a conservation project. Visiting some of the smaller towns and archaeological sites also felt like we were supporting the conservation of the country's treasures and history.

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

Excellent holiday. Varied and fascinating itinerary, good group size, brilliant local guide, fabulous group of fellow travellers.
