    The 4 Days Pamukkale and Cappadocia Tour from Istanbul was an excellent way to see these two regions of Turkey. The itinerary was well planned and on time. Our hotels were as advertised and provided a comfortable place to rest after a day of touring. Our tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Ayhan, the travel agent, was helpful in arranging our tour and answered any questions we had.
