A quick belated note to say thanks for your help, kindness, nice meals and hospitality during my Lycian Way trek. Have been telling people what a great holiday it is.

What a holiday! One of the best we have ever had. Everything worked like clockwork and Aysegul planned the whole route to accommodate our concerns as to whether our 11 y old granddaughter could manage it. She did and loved it. It was all unforgettable.
