I booked the 5 day tour of Istanbul and Cappadocia. It was great. I got a fully guided tour of both cities and a little bit of free time in both places so I could explore on my own. Both places are gorgeous. I had such a great time. I even paid a little extra for the hot air balloon. It was amazing. What a fun thing to do! It was way less stressful getting around a foreign country because I always had someone to pick me up!
We booked the 5 day tour of Istanbul and Cappadocia. Wow. Istanbul is so big. I’m glad we had the guide to show us around, otherwise I wouldn’t even have known where to begin. Our guide really knew her stuff and we got to skip all of the lines with her! Cappadocia was gorgeous. I really loved the hot air balloon ride. I will never forget that. We had such an amazing time in Turkey!
