I guess she never read my blog before she embarked on her journey. Too bad! I hear so much of this "unsafe" hogwash all the time by people who want to travel to Turkey. I'm glad you wrote about this happenstance.

istanbul tours

We were collected next morning to drive to cappadocia for our tour. This again was wonderful though our guide talked too much at times, giving us too much information and not enough time to www.privatetoursinistanbul.com wander on our own. We had a bit of fun when a Greek guest disagreed with the guide on some points. I don't think the guide appreciated my friend and I not paying attention!! I will say that Cappadocia is not somewhere i'd like to spend much time. Very shabby with a pack of mangy dogs running around. I found that quite upsetting. The hotel, cave hotel, was again adequate with lovely helpful staff. Very clean but an extra blanket or sheet would have been nice as well as a bedside light. At least the fridge was big enough for our Gin and Tonic !! The undergrand city trip was also interesting (apart from the guide talking too much), though we were not impressed with the "Cappadocia"... Japanese tourists seemed to like it. But we felt the Turkish tourist board should spend a bit more on something more appropriate. Our memories of the trip will be the excellent organisation and lovely, friendly, helpful staff. Thank you all so much. Love Istanbul......
