Thank you Rock Valley Travel for a wonderful, well organized trip from Istanbul to Cappadocia and Ephesus. What a great group of people to work with. Our enquiries were answered by Jodie immediately. The itinerary for a difficult tour for 5 people was flawless. The entire experience from start to finish was perfect. The flights were all timely, our meals, especially in small homes were superb. Our tour guide Selim, was the most interesting and knowlegeable, "0n fire" guide we experienced on our entire two weeks. Thank you for the incredible hot air balloon trip- a never to be forgotten experience. You have a great company and were a pleasure to work with. We would all highly recommend Rock Valley Travel to anyone visiting Turkey.
Thank You, Janet Buhr and group from Montana, USA The five of us had.
Dear Jodie,
Just a short note to let you know we are now well and truly settled back at home and to say thank you for arranging our Eastern Turkey tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it and very much appreciated the efforts of our guide Nihat and driver Mehmet. In particular their effort and professionalism over the last couple of days on the Black Sea coast and into Amaysa were very much appreciated.
On reflection we probably should have opted for two nights in Unye as the driving distances/times were fairly long and restricted sightseeing and other activity. You may wish to bear that in mind if you need to arrange something for other people sometime.
All in all we had a great time and should we get back to Turkey some time in the future no doubt we will talk to you and Rock Valley Travel.
Cheers for now. Chris and Jenny
PS. an interesting sidelight was that when you booked us at the Grand Pasha you mentioned they had an option for dinner to be included in the pakage which we declined. As it happened we ate at the Grand Pasha on two of the three nights was really good food and a very nice place to stay

Hi Tom,
We have been home for about a month after our fantastic almost 2 month journey. I just want to let you know that because of Rock Valley Travel we are still raving about our experience in Turkey. Jodie and the staff in Urgup were fantastic. Frank and I felt that we were part of the family after having spent two days with Umleur (sp?) (our guide for two days) and Zafir (our driver). We were a small group of 6 for the first two days and the people we shared the tour with were wonderful companions. Omer was well informed and had the perfect personality for guiding our group! And then there was the balloon ride which we didn't decide to do until about a week before. Had we missed that, we would have been sorely disappointed.
Our hotel in Urgup (Esbelli) was wonderful - such friendly people and such good breakfasts!
Jodie also arranged for our time in Selcuk (Ephesus, etc.) and again we had terrific guides and a nice hotel. She also helped us with our Greek experience which is not easy that time of year with the Greek ferry schedules.
We were on our own in Istanbul, but found a walking guide one day as we walked up the street at "Walk about Tours". Our guide for the day was great.
We have told ourselves that we must get back to Turkey - with more time in Istanbul. What an interesting country. We are now embarking on our study of ancient history!
Thank you for your informative website. Please convey our greetings to everyone at Rock Valley and give them 5 stars for their outstanding service.

Pat Wilson,
