My friend and i have just got home after taking part on a 15 days tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise package we found at www.greeceturkeytours.com and let me tell you it was an experience to remember and all for great reasons. The 15 days tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise fethiye package started off by touring the massive culture filled city of Istanbul before moving onto the world famous ancient cit of Ephesus which by the way is million times better to see than what you hear about! Up next was a visit to Pamukkale where we had a chance to swim in the magical water of Cleopatras Pool to relax before been whisked off on what has to be the most relaxing and chilling part of the 15 days for me and my friend. We sailed along the most clear blue and still waters with various stops along the way so that we could jump off and explore independately - best part was checking out the Lycian Rock Tombs in Kas. The 15 days tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise fethiye comes to an end with seeing Cappadocia and oh wow what a perfect way to end the most perfect 15 days in Turkey - just inspiring! Definitely recommend this trip as it has something for everyone whether you want to head out explore and discover all the wonderful history or if you just want to spend time relaxing and catching the sun on a traditional turkish boat as what we learned to be called a gulet. Thankyou again we loved it.

I had arranged to book this 15 day tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise fethiye to surprise my girlfriend for her birthday as she had always talked about wanting to do something different than the usual beach and hotel stay so when i spoke to vedat from www.greeceturkeytours.com he told me about all the great places we would visit and when he mentioned there was also a mini cruise included i knew instantly my girlfriend would love this idea. I told vedat that i wanted to surprise my girlfriend and he was fantastic at keeping it on the low and also with arranging everything for us made it so much easier to keep it a surprise. For me the best part of the 15 day tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise fethiye package was the on land parts as got to see some fascinating historical sights that were guided by a great tour guide called Fezo, when he learned it was my girlfriends birthday he arranged a little birthday cake treat for her which she wa so surprised by and loved the gesture. The best part of the 15 day tour of turkey by bus & blue cruise fethiye package for my girlfriend was without a doubt the cruising part, she absolutely loved relaxing on the deck of the boat under the sun and on her actual birthday evening the staff on the cruise arranged a lovely set table for us with a special dessert to ! The whole experience was incredible but most of all to see how lovely everyone was to make my girlfriends birthday so special really was the icing on the cake. FABULOUS PACKAGE !
