Travelling solo during the off-peak tourist season, I had contacted Euphrates Tour only a week before arriving in Cappadocia. Ms Dee Sadik was my liaison, and she was very efficient and helpful with arranging the tours in those few days.
I booked two tours at the group tour price, but ended up getting a guide and driver all to myself for the two days because it was the off-peak season. My guide Rana and driver Ürmit were extremely warm people and I had a really good time with them.
Many features of the tours I had booked had to be changed, however, because the snow meant that some paths were closed, or that it was the wrong season to go fruit-picking and the villagers were not out on the street for us to interact with. This is a shame because I was looking forward to it - I will return in spring or summer sometime to have this experience.
Nonetheless, Rana and Ürmit brought me to see other attractions so that I got a good overall experience of the region despite deviating from the itinerary.
The food was excellent - first day at the Greek House restaurant in Mustafapasa, second day in a villager's home, cooked my Ürmit's friend's mother.
I had a wonderful time hanging out with the family, too.
All in all, Euphrates Tour provides a service that stands out from the many other tour agencies in Cappadocia, because of their attention to detail and versatility.
