I visited Turkey in June with a friend and I fell in love with the country! The Ada Vegas team was great, super friendly and helpful and organized our itinerary based on my preferences and the result was an unforgettable trip!

We first visited the beautiful Archeological site in the Ephesus area (which is the day tour I’m rating in here). Kusadasi is such a vibrant and colorful city and I wish I had more time to explore the small roads filled with little shops and stairs painted in different colors everywhere, but I’ll be back for sure!

The visit to the ruins was also magnificent, the guide was very helpful and knowleagable and give us the time to explore and take tons of pictures. We were very lucky with the weather as it was a sunny beautiful day but it can get very hot in June so don’t forget a hat or an umbrella and bring plenty of water.

Outside the attraction, there are a few bars and stands where you can buy souvenirs and I recommend you sit down in there and try the Turkish tea!

I also recommend a visit to the Virgin mary’s House. I’m not a religious person, but the place has a very special aura: the small church, the wall full of piece of paper with prayers, the candles.. they all gave such a serene vibe. Even more so if you are religious of course.

The view from our Hotel balcony was spectacular, sunset over the sea, basically my idea of perfection!

Ada Vegas also organized the rest of our tour in Turkey and everything went smooth.

From Kusadasi we went for a day trip to Pamukkale, the incredible natural pools and I asked if I could organized a very early trip (we woke up at 3 to be there very early in the morning before all the tourists arrived) and it was one of the best decisions of my life.

The site was almost empty and I took beautiful pictures and footage with my GoPro, enjoying the surreal peace and the incredible turquoise (and very warm) waters of the pool. If you go to Turkey you can’t miss this place but go there early in the morning, it’s much better!

Next stop: 2 incredible days in Cappadocia where I went for my first ride on a hot air Balloon! Again, I had to wake up at 4 but, oh my… the sunrise from the balloon was something out of this world! We also stayed in a super cool cave hotel and I recommend you take a walk to the sunset point, which is easily reachable (10 minutes walk).

If you are into photography, make sure to bring your equipment with you at all times in Turkey! For the sunset in Cappadocia, I forgot my tripod and I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. It looked like we were living in a fairy tale world!

Last stop Istanbul, loved the Bosphorus cruise and the walk to the Gran Bazaar, too bad we only have 2 days left as Istanbul deserves at least 1 week of exploring.

All in all I was amazed by how well the trip was organized, our guides were super friendly and explained to us the most interesting facts and replying to our questions. I’m still in contact with one of the guys at Ada Vegas Tours and I can’t recommend them enough!

They welcomed us like we were part of the family and even helped me out when my memory card broke, borrowing me one of theirs so I didn’t lose any precious moment of this fantastic trip. I would have loved to give them 6 stars If I could! 🙂 Simply perfect! One of my best trips ever!
