Totally agree with review by Seasoned traveller 22 - excellent trip. We expected cold weather so were prepared, but the 0.5m of snow enroute from Anatalya was exceptional - full praise to our bus driver for his very safe driving. We flew from Glasgow, and timings were as planned although there did seem to be less legroom in the plane... More

We booked the cappadocia tour to turkey with RSD and travelled in mid February. Whilst not expecting hot conditions we did not expect to find quite as much snow in the interior, as greeted us. When considering this particular trip during the winter months I would suggest that careful consideration is given to your physical abilities. As many of the... More

Imagine how those people were able to dig these cave when there were no metal tools yet. It amazing going one floor down to another level. And seeing those huge wheel door to protect them from enemy attack. How they had stable, wine making, there cooking area, etc, very impressive. A must see place.

First and foremost, good or bad, this is a 7 day visit to Turkey at a very cheap price. We regarded it entirely as an adventure. The bottom line is that for £179 each we got flights from Manchester to Antalya, bed and breakfast at actually very good quality hotels and the services of a knowledgeable guide and fantastic driver...

Amazing to see how people organize themselves and survive attacks, wars and winters underground. not for the claustrophobic people though.

The cave houses, cave churches, underground villages and the way that the fairy chimneys have been converted into useful dwellings was amazing to see. We saw one chimney converted by the police into a police station!!! This truly original landscape, like no other place on earth was mind blowing.

Experienced this tour from the 21st to 28th January 2015. Hotels were excellent, food good and coach driver and guide Mert were excellent. Amazing scenery and excellent site visits. A steal at the price paid. Highly recommend it.

I can't believe how many people wrote derogatory comments on trips to Antalya, Alanya and Cappadoccia. I admit I was a little apprehensive befor the trip. My worries were unfounded. The whole trip was superb. From the moment we were met at the airport by Meltem,our guide and Ibrahim, our driver until being dropped back at the airport we were... More

We visited these cave dwellings on a tour of Cappadocia in December. Words cannot express what a beauty this place is.
