Our hotel was changed at the last minute which was a bit upsetting at first but the second hotel was nice. The tour was a good tour.

I booked this tour for my wife and I, we were a bit scared since it was our first time travelling to Turkey but our agent made sure that we were well taken care of. It was a great experience will definitely book with Infinity Vacations again.
