Holidays in Kusadasi
Kusadasi is a town on the Western Aegean coast of Turkey which when translated means " bird Island " and when seen from the sea it resembles the shape of a birds head.

These include Ephesus, the old city walls, Kaleici Mosque, Pigeon island with its castle and beautiful beach, Kirazli - a typical Turkish village and the famous Ladies Beach

Dear Mr. Koc
I've been meaning to write to you for some time, so say thank you for arranging such a wonderful holiday for us. We had 4 nights B & B at the Empire Palace Hotel in Istanbul, which was wonderfully central, with friendly, helpful staff, and then flew to Cappadocia, staying at the MDC Cave Hotel in Urgup, which was delightful. The location was outstanding and the hotel quite unique.We have travelled all over the world and I can safely say that this holiday was one of the best - full of new experiences including a trip in a hot air balloon, visiting underground cities, ancient cave dwellings with amazing frescoes and fabulous landscapes. It was fun and exciting. For the first 2 days of tours in Cappadocia we went with the local representative, who were excellent and our guide, Mustafa Sahin was outstanding.
Thank you again for a brilliant trip and we will recommend your company. We may be interested in Croatia next year.
