“Tour of Pamukkale”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

We booked a tour through Katpatuka Tours with Mr. Kadir Teke, the general manager. Kadir was a very nice man, and really hooked us up! He was very helpful in giving us advice on the next leg of our trip. We were originally planning on going from Cappadocia to Ephesus via Selcuk--make our base in Selcuk and explore Ephesus by day.Then, our plan was to take a bus from Ephesus to Istanbul.

Kadir suggested, instead, that we avoid Selcuk, and instead explore Ephesis from Kusadaci. This turned out to be a much better suggestion! Because we went through Kadir, we saved time figuring out a hotel and bus route. This gave us a couple extra days in our itinerary. As a result, we were also able to explore Pamukkale, which we had wanted to go to but thought we didn't have time.

Kadir also found us a very nice hotel in Kusadaci, which was right by the water.

Kadir also made some recommendations for day hikes in Cappadocia. He suggested the Rose Valley, which was totally awesome! It was beautiful and deserted and absolutely wonderful.

I would strongly recommend going through Kadir and Katpatuka Travels!

“Blue Tour”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

My wife Valentina and I went on the blue tour organised by Katpatuka Tour it was a more personal tour being only 4 people in one of their mini buses. We had a memorable trip our guide was very knowledgeable giving lots of information. He went out of his way to take photos of both of us and the beautiful surroundings. He arrange our lunch at a local stop off point which was excellent compared to previous trips when we have been in Turkey before.

“Not serious people”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

In the Katpatuka agency in Goreme I was promised a discount on a hot air ballon flight when booking a day tour with them. We were 2people and booked and paid a tour for the2of us but at the end they didn't keep their word and wanted us to pay for an additional tour before giving us the ballon ride at the price agreed of €70 instead of €90. We spoke with the manager but they refused to keep their word. Plus during the tour they took us only in free spots that could easily be reached and seen by renting a car or a motorbike. They are just a big rip off.

“Memorable private trip”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

I enggaged Katpatuka private tours for me, my wife and my daughter to arranged whirling dervish plus Turkish Night at Avanos and ski trip at Kayseri. I found that Katpatuka travel handled it with full of hospitality and informative. We enjoyed the Turkish Night. Katpatuka also handled the ski trip by providing English speaking instructor, good hotel with facilities and dinner, turkish bath, etc.. No other extra charges for extra services that the agent provided us such as stopby at fairy chimneys, pick up at hotel and airport transfer. The trip was realy a memorable trip and wish to recommend to friends.
