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

The most memorable things were the amazing historical sites and the excellent Turkish food.

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

There is a lot of time sitting on a bus. The countryside is interesting and the guide tried to keep us informed and amused but take a good book or a pillow for the long rides.

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

Only the employees of the tour company and the various commercial stops we made. I was a little disappointed that the trip fell short in this area.

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

We enjoyed the trip. It was well organized. It was a good example of small group travel in an interesting place

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

Going to Troy, even for too short a time.

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

Be prepared to endure long hours in a mini bus, mostly unequipped with working seat belts. Make sure you have a variety of clothing to cope with the variety of weather. Always survey the vast spread of mostly pleasant food at the hotel buffets before choosing the first dish.

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

Only in so far as it provided them with some much needed money. the visit to the leather factory was rather disgusting: slick and commercial, and took time away from sites.

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

I didn't like arriving at the hotel to find they weren't expecting us as we had been transferred to another company, making this the second time! Where was the "responsible" attitude I had booked with Responsible Travel to find? Guidance for tipping other than our excellent guide and driver was hard to find. We spent so much time travelling that we were constantly being hurried from one site to another.
