Turkey & Greek Island Odyssey » Review by Marie & Alyce
This was my first contiki experience & it was truly amazing! My Favourite part of the Tour was the Turkey part! The site's we visited were breathtaking and I would definitely recommend to take this tour if your into history & culture. We had the best group and the best tour guide, Ahmet. He had the best personality, was organized, helped us get the best out of our experience,established rapport with every single person in our tour, haggled prices on drinks with locals and destinations, had very good knowledge of his country and its history, was outgoing and would do anything to make us happy with plenty of optionals. He became not only my tour guide but a great friend.
I absolutely loved the sites especially Pammukale and Ephesus! You have to experience the Turkish Bath, it was the best and will definitely be nothing you have done before. Turkish food is to die for, especially the sweets and street food such as Kebabs, Pide,Kofta etc. I really didn't want to leave Turkey after this great experience & nearly cried when I had to leave!!
The cruise was good and Silvia was very informative and helpful, but I preferred being as a group tour in Turkey rather than on the cruise as there was a number of people on the cruise not being on the contiki. Alot of the time people were split up and we couldn't find each other to do things together. I would of like to spend more times on the islands as the time was more spent on the boat and a couple of hours on each island. Apart from that, I definitely would do another contiki in the future and travel to Turkey again. The people In our group made the tour and the experience, that I will never forget! Im still so sad it has ended and hope to keep in touch with all the people I met, until next time... ♡
