          Cappadocia and Drive to Ephsus
          Ali was a great host during our stay in Cappadocia. He arranged for our pickup at the airport and our hotel - Hidden Cave in Goreme, which was an outstanding choice. Ali was then our guide for a wonderful day-long tour of Cappadocia. His knowledge of the area and its history is outstanding. He recommended a hike for our second day in Cappadocia, which was also outstanding. He then arranged for a week-long drive, ending in Selcuk on the coast where Ephsus is located. We pickedup the car in Goreme rather than having to go back to the airport. His selection of hotels was great as were his recommendation for sites to visit along the drive to Selcuk. The freeways in Turkey are excellent but driving in the crowded old parts of cities can be hectic. GPS got us to were we wanted to go. To Ali's recommendation, we added a charted a boat for a day on the Mediterranian out of Fethiye. We highly recommend this. Ali was recommended to us by a friend. I heartily second this recommendation.

          Five star Service
          Just returned from our trip to Turkey. Ali organized some fantastic tours for us and flights and everything was booked perfectly. Great guide and nothing was too much trouble for Ali even though we made some last minute changes.

          Private Tour is a Great Value!
          This private tour was the best value! We got to choose which things to take longer to do (hike the Red and Rose Valley) and which things to leave off (a second underground city). Service was prompt, professional and perfectly tailored to our group. Erdim was a great guide with passion and knowledge.

          Immerse in the serenity of Maulana, had to be one of the best experiences ever !
          We booked a private tour for Konya especially because I had read a lot of books by Rumi, the famous Sufi poet. Not only was I mesmerised by the architecture, history and rituals that were kept intact after centuries but also amazed at the absolute attention paid for the monument’s maintenance. Our tour became 5 star because we had Ali as our guide and he himself had added so much to our knowledge about the place and it’s history. His car, demeanour and overall experience were super comforting and we were able to finish the whole tour in 4-5 hours including lunch. I would recommend this to everyone who is visiting Turkey.

          Great tour options, prices and very accommodating staff
          [Late review] We booked most of our Cappadocia activities with Wow Cappadocia. We travelled to Cappadocia last Oct. 1-3 and unlike the usual spontaneous trip, we did plan ahead our itinerary here so we can maximize our stay and estimate the costs. I have contacted several travel agencies/checked third-party travel apps and the prices are relatively the same (depending on the season). What set WC apart was their patience and level of details they provide in every response (even though he has no assurance that I will book from them since I'm still comparing prices), particularly Ali. He also advised alternatives and option, confirm feasibility of the activities we want to do considering our limited time/budget which helped us in our planning. We booked the early morning Camel Ride (a must do!), and Private car with Tour Guide for a day tour. In this setup, you can define the places you wanted to go and manage your own time. Ali himself was our tour guide. We were just 4 but we have the entire van all to ourselves and they offer water as well. He's very friendly, professional, knowledgable and addresses all our questions well. He also suggested where to eat and even offered to pay for the Pottery Kebab that he wanted us to try. Highlight for us was the kick-wheel pottery and they let the 4 of us experience it. Another thing we booked with them is Sunset ATV (Another must-do! I really enjoyed this.) and airport transfers w/ them (including airport transfer within Istanbul since we spend a day there). I will definitely recommend booking Turkey activities with them. I've been recommending them already to some of my friends who consider going to Cappadocia after seeing our photos. Thanks Ali! We had a great experience in Cappadocia 🙂

Do not hesitate, if you are looking for experienced, knowledgeable tour guides in the Cappadocia region you can do no better. We very much hope to return to experience Turkey soon.

          You will not be disappointed with Ali!
          We had the best time with Ali and our driver! He had an answer for all our questions and we spent the day laughing and exploring! We do a tour in every country we go to and Ali made sure we felt like his most important clients - so much better than other tour guides. Best tour! You will not be disappointed!

          Wow!
          What a wonderful experience! Elif was a brilliant guide - very knowledgeable, engaging, and friendly. She was the best part of the tour and everyone thought she was fantastic. The sights were magical and Elif’s information made it even better. Lunch was also delicious. The company was also extremely supportive when one member of our group wss unwell, immediately rescheduling tours and going above and beyond to help us. I have never felt so supported by a tour company! Overall, despite some disorganisation at the start as the company was running quite late, this was a brilliant tour that we would absolutely recommend.

          7 churches of Revelation Tour Review
          We did the 7 churches of Revelation Tour and I personally enjoyed the tour guide company and knowledge. She was very accommodating and took us to explore extra places. She even organized a surprise birthday cake for one of us 🎉🎊🤩🥳. This is alongside the driver dedicated to us during the tour.

          Brilliant days with WOW
          Feray met us with a smile which was so welcoming. We had decided on the places we wished to visit and enjoyed every moment of our day. Feray's knowledge is mind blowing, her delivery to us perfect, we absolutely loved the whole day. We cannot speak highly enough of the attention she gave us, the courtesey of two rather ageing tourists and so we booked a second day of touring with her. It was a pleasure too, to meet Ali her husband for the second day to make our enjoyment complete. Well done indeed, we would recommend WOW to anyone travelling to Cappadocia.

          Hightlight of Cappadocia tour
          Booked Hightlights of Cappadocia tour from Carus Cappadocia hotel desk. Tour was really good, got plenty information on region and places we visited. Our guide Erdim Kul was very professional and he was really good to tell history and interesting facts of Cappadocia region. Tour was interesting and during day we saw many beautiful places and got also to see pottery making. Underground city was superb. Minivan was clean and modern and our driver Abdullah was driving safely.

          Great Private Tour
          We booked the tour through our hotel Carus, which is a partner of Venere. Started the Private Highlights tour with Rana our Guide, she was very knowledgeable. Our first stop was Goreme open air museum where we could see the beautiful picturesque views of the valley, Second stop was Pasabag Fairy Chimneys, the third stop was Avanos, where we could see the longest river called the Red River. For Pottery we visited Sultans Ceramic Avanos, Fourth stop was Ozkonak Underground city. Lunch at Bizim Ev Restaurant in Avanos which was recommended by Rana only but Food was average in my opinion Fifth Stop was Love Valley. The spectacular view points at the Love valley made it my favourite stop for the day Final stop was the Pigeon valley where pigeon houses were carved, we could also see the Uchisar Castle. I enjoyed the flexibility of the private tour and loved how warm, understanding and humble Rana was with us. She was completely respectful of us and of how we wanted to proceed with the tour. Big thumps up to Venere Travel

        The tour was very nice. She did not rush us at all and gave us enough time to see everything. Lunch was very nice and traditional. Plus she provided us with all the information and moreover was very friendly and we did not get bored at all. But I would like to mention that I contacted a few other travel agencies but this was the once who looked very professional and provided prompt responses to all the questions and was very helpful.

        My husband and I booked the Cappadocian highlights tour and we got lucky that it ended up being just us and we got a private tour at our own pace. This tour covered everything we hoped to see in Cappadocia without the hassle of large groups, at our own pace, and very informative host as well. I feel that I was able to learn about the history and area in a relaxed setting. The pottery tour was a highlight and lunch was delicious as well. Highly recommend if you are going to Cappadocia!

        The tour company very kindly accommodated me as I was unable to be ready at the designated pick up time.
        The tour was scenic and covered a lot of activities/sights in a relatively short space of time. Lunch was simple but tasty. A good tour, especially if you’re short on time!

        We had a great time with Venere travel agency. The experience was superb, very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide (Ali) with the history of cappadocia. We got to do all planned activities. The hotel was nice and clean( hidden cave hotel), friendly staff. The restaurants we went to for lunch the food was delicious. I will highly recommend this agency to friends and family and I will definitely come back soon.

        We started our tour at around 09:30 after having a balloon ride in the morning. Ali picked us in a comfortable saloon car with his trainee guide Erdep. We were taken to all the places mentioned and Ali gave us a detailed account about all the places. We were given ample time to explore all the places and to take pictures. Ali and Erdep both spoke excellent english and had an amazing sense of humour, they kept us entertained during the whole tour.
        The tour of a family owned pottery business was really fun, one of the family members gave us a tour and we had our own pottery class which was amazing!
        While we were going to the underground city we received an unexpected call from my brother who arrived in cappadocia that day and was taken to the hospital directly from the airport because he fell ill. We had to cancel the tour and turn around, Ali and Erdep took Turkish/Cappadocian hospitality to another level by taking us to the hospital in Kayseri, staying with us and helping us throughout the whole process until we paid the bill and left the hospital. Anyone who has been to Turkey understands how difficult it can be to communicate with people in Turkey because they don’t speak english, it is even more difficult and stressful when you’re in a hospital but Ali and Erdep were God sent and made everything so easy for us.
        After leaving the hospital they took us to the airport to pick my brothers luggage and dropped us back off to our hotel. Ali came back next day and picked us from our hotel to complete the tour (Underground city and Uchisar Castle) which we missed the previous day.
        We can not thank Ali and Erdep enough for what they did. They didn’t have to do all they did but they still did it without any expectations. We came to Cappadocia just to tick it off our bucket list but left Cappadocia like it was our home. We look forward to visiting Cappadocia again and will most certainly book a tour with Ali again!
        I can not recommend this tour enough. Sorry for the long review but it still doesn’t do justice to everything Ali and Erdep did for us.

        My husband and I took this tour . Booking was easy . We had to change the day because our hot air ballon tour got cancelled. They were very accommodating. Ali our guide came in time to pick us from the hotel . The tour was average . As there is not much to see in Cappadocia the tour covered everything. I was disappointed with the tour guide though. He was not very interested in his job . He just tried to rush through the tour as quickly as possible . He would take us to the place tell a little bit and would say you go on your own and quickly come back in ten minutes . He did this with every place he took us . His attitude bored us more . The lunch was below average buffet . We had stomach virus after having that food.
        Will lot recommend.

        We booked this tour having read a few positive reviews. We had seen that there were other (slightly cheaper) tours (green, red etc) but we thought that this tour covered all of the main sites and so was definitely value for money.
        Me and my girlfriend booked this tour and since it happened to be the only two of us that day, it turned out to be a private tour.
        This tour combines the best attractions of the Green and Red tour, without long drives between each site...which was especially good on a hot day like we had.
        Ali and his clear and excellent explanations made this tour magnificent. He was not hurried or keen to rush us like some of other tours which I have done, he was accommodating and flexible...choosing an order and sites that suited us. Most importantly he was funny and gave the tour a personal touch. He was happy to share loads of stories as well as telling us about the sites and geographical features. The included lunch was brilliant and had a good number of options (for meat lovers, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free as well).
        If you are spending just one day in this region I strongly recommend this tour.

        We took two small group tours (Highlights of Cappodocia and Small group Green tour). Both times we were only participant so tours were in fact private. Ali is a great guide and is very knowlegeble guy, tell us a lot about history of this region and current life. Tours are good planned to avoid big tourists groups thus we walked in Ikhlara valley and in undeground city without big crowd. I'd rcommend to take both tours together because they moved undeground city from green tour to Highlights.
        Both lunches were delisious. Restaurant in Avanos had gluten-free marks of food that was great as I'm celiac. At Ikhlara valley restaraunt Ali helped me to identify all gluten-containing meals in menue.
        I really like this company and will contact them when will go to Turkey next time.

        We come from Thailand and here is our 2nd time with Ali. He never made us disappoint. His language is easily to understand , clear and sharp.
        We picked Green Tour and he could cover all highlight for those place.
        He responsible and eager to sharing more information to you as needed. Transport vehicle dont make u disappoint.
        Would rate this tour 10/10.
