Hi so my Plan is to travel to cappadocia area In mid May (17-20)
and I have been in contact with a few tour companies and I was wondering if anybody had any good experience with them and or more importantly NEGATIVE experience with them, The companies im considering are:
Rock Valley Travel
and Reliable Travel
any thoughts on these tours?
Also I have read a few forum posts saying that people generally just arrive in Cappadocia and figure out their tours when the get there. How much cheaper is it do it this way? the Tour companies are quoting me between $550-$770 (the more expensive ones, includes balloon flight) especially when you include in airplane tickets/shuttle transfers between airports and hotels in cappadocia AND Istanbul. I plan to fly to Cappadocia from Istanbul and would need a shuttle from hotel in Instanbul to the airport and then a shuttle from the airport in Cappadocia (either Kayersi or Nevshir) to my hotel? so is getting a complete package less expensive then putting everything together on my own? or is it the same price?
If I wait till I get to Istanbul to book my Cappadocia trip is it cheaper? Im staying with a friend in Istanbul not a hotel, so where should I go in Istanbul to book Cappadocia trip if I were to do it this way?
