We took the alternative jeep tour into the Girdev mountain area; driven by Yasin. We drove up into the mountains at a leisurely pace with time to take in the fresh air, scenes and take photographs. Yasin filled in the details of life in the mountains, the seasonal roaming of the shepherds, mountains herbs and teas; some survival tips and local historical monuments. We saw stalks and eagles as we drove through the mountains. We had lunch at a local farm - a fantastic rustic meal seated on a outdoor traditional Turkish terrace with Turkish tea to finish. We then rambled over to visit the farmer's orchard and finished with hand-picked cherries - as much as we could eat and some for the journey home. Yasin was a professional, friendly and careful driver. We got away from the mad crowds of the tourist areas; had a wonderful relaxing day experiencing the natural environment, culture and customs with a great host. This trip was fantastic value for money. If you want a brilliant Turkish experience visit Yasin at Alibaba tours.
