My husband and I wanted to do a tour all around Turkey and when I saw this tour on the Privatetour.com website I thought it looked perfect for us so I booked it. What an amazing few days I could not have asked for more the guides were perfect and very informative and made all the tours fun we had no time to be bored or unamused. The service from Adavegas Travel was again perfect and I would recommend them 100%. As a gay couple we were a little trepidatious about visiting Turkey but it was a wonderful experience and the people are kind and welcoming we will be back.
