Clare and I would like to thank you for your superb help when we were visiting Cappadocia earlier this week. We had a marvellous time and we appreciate all your efforts to show us and teach us so much in a very short time. We certainly will be pleased to recommend both Cappadocia and your services to our friends. Hopefully, we will be able to return with our daughters in the near future and, who knows, maybe we'll let you show them Urgup by night. I hope things work out with your German transit visa, if needed, and that you have a great time in Ecuador. Please give our very best wishes to Gonca and her mother. I hope you had a fun time at her birthday party Best regards
2010 was our first visit to Turkey and in June of this year 2013, we made our third visit to that wonderful country. Each visit we stay in Istanbul, some times visiting sites that we had been to before but always trying to see something new. Each visit we have left the capital to go out to various places as there are so many fascinating and interesting places to see.
This year was incredibly special as we had seen photos of Mt Nemrut and so had decided that we wanted to visit it. Imagine our surprise when at the start of a 3 day visit to the south which started at Urgup we were collected by Kadir and the most wonderful driver Saffet ( who did not speak English unfortunately), to be told that there would just be the 4 of us on the journey. The trip was unforgettable not only for the sites but the knowledge of the places and the areas that Kadir was able to tell us about. Mt Nemrut, Gobekli Tepe, theAtaturk Dam and the Mosaic Museum at Gaziantep. are just 4 of the myriad of experiences that will forever remain in our memories. As for Kadir apart from being an incredible guide, he is an incredible person, a load of fun, has a great knowledge of the English language and the most wonderful personality.
We hope that he will remain our friend. We love Turkey and the Turkish people.
Dear Kadir, Bob and I got back to Louisiana after a long day of flying. We have finally adjusted to the local time and sleep/awake cycle. We thank you for making our trip into the interior of Turkey such a wonderful trip. I have been reliving the trip by labeling the pictures that I took. We enjoyed Bodrum, especially the hotel and its wonderful restaurant. The last day we walked by the amphitheater and then up to the windmills. Here are a few photos from the top. The Underwater Archeology Museum is worth a visit if only to see the shipwreck from 1400 BC. They found jewelry and copper and glass ingots. We wish you luck when you go out on your own. Let us know if you every come our way. Best wishes to you and your family.
Dear Kadir, Thank you for your services during the last 2,5 days. We enjoyed the sites and your beautiful country. We appreciate hearing about your stories and the theories at the archeological and historical sites. It's been fun. Our best to you with your career and new company. There is a lot to see and do in Turkey. Best Regards
Our stay in Capadoccia was an exotic eye-opener.. Not only did we stay in a "cave" hotel beautifully decorated with Oriental rugs and all the necessary amenities, but the landscape we saw was breathtaking.in its scope and freshness. In fact, our guide showed us several landscapes each one more intriguing than the next with its distinctive shapes and rugged formations -- it was like being in a different world. While we were probably remiss not to have gone up in a balloon to get a bird's eye view of the totality, we were kept very busy climbing various hills, entering tunnels and passageways. We were particularly impressed with the underground museum of ancient pottery with its exquisite old ceramics so beautifully displayed. Our Capaddoccia experience facilitated by our guide Kadir was sheer pleasure. We highly recommend it!
