“Beyond expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We didn't have much time and we wanted to see as much as possible and not just see but also hear as much as possible. Via our hotel we booked at Metis Travel. First we wanted to have the delight tour. We saw a lot of the surroundings, we had a very nice view over the area, it was amazing! We continued our trip to kaymakli, an underground city. What we saw was unbelievable. How did the people live there and survived the enemy? Our guide Ali was amazing in telling the stories that told more than only history. I saw everything happening in front of me as I was hundreds of years ago in the middle of what was happening! Then we went to uchisar, which view was even more amazing. We had lunch in Avanos next to the red river, which was a place that a lot of families come together. The lunch was with very nice dishes, hot and cold, my friends and I could enjoy what we liked. We went to apottery where my friend was chosen to do some pottery herself! We went to valleys to walk trough afterwards and this was such an amazing adventure, so we booked the capadocia cultur tour for the day after! This was more hiking trough valleys, we saw churches in the open fields, which had very nice fresco's! We went to a former greek village ( I thought it was called mustafapasa, but I am not totally sure), with such an amazing story. The people were exchanged with turkish people from Greece. We again had an amazing lunch theough the valleys. We had traditional dishes, it was so honestly good food and the people that worked there were so friendly! Nothing was good enough and they had so much food. They were amazing people. At last we went to the open air museum. How did people live at that time and how did they figure out amazing solutions for their problems? The fresco's were amazing. Especially the one in the dark church! Don't miss this! And don't miss the guide Ali by booking some other agency, because if you want to be guided, beyond guidance then you need Ali!
We will go back to this amazing place on earth and we want Ali again to join us and to let us be guided beyond guidance as we did this time!

“Amazing Adventure with Exceptional Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We booked a 14day tour which was brilliant! Turkey has got be within the top 3 countries I have travelled. From the city life of endless eateries, shopping and architecture in Istanbul to the historical sights of Ephesus to the breath taking views of hot air ballooning over cappadocia and I cannot thank the guys at Metis Travel enough for such an amazing experience of a lifetime!

Staff at Metis are not only professional but highly knowledgeable from places to eat, culture and history.

Ali is definitely highly recommended and is one of the best tour guides Ive come across with experience far beyond his years.

If its ease of mind from the day to day planning of travel you want and more of enjoying the culture, history and adventure Metis Travel is the way to go!

“Excellent Travel Guide and Management”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Metis travel had arranged a complete 2 week itinerary for our Turkey Vacation. Every step was very meticulously planned and we were guided by high calibre professional tour guides everywhere we went. Our private tours were very enjoyable and educational. We highly recommend Metis for a one stop shop for professional quality tour management.

“The best kept secret ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Spending 4 days in Cappadocia was the highlight of our two week holiday in Greece and Turkey. The staff at Metis Travel looked after every detail and offered nothing less than exceptional service at all times. Ali is highly experienced and knowledgeable about the travel industry which made planning our trip seamless.

Our wonderful guide, Feray, (who now feels like family!) was both knowledgeable and personable.

Metis Travel know what they are doing ...
Just go!
