We stayed with the family for 2 nights in May 2013. Halil, Pero, Fatih and Aylin were very welcoming and made us feel a part of the family. We really enjoyed learning more about Kurdish culture and village life and appreciated everyone's patience with our attempts at speaking Kurdish. And the food was phenomenal, the best we've had in Turkey! We would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

See a way of life unchanged since biblical times, mix with the locals, and experience authentic Turkey with not a t-shirt nor another tourist in sight. Accommodation is basic and facilities are shared, as you join a family in their home. ... more less
