Product Reviews

Daniel

Avec ce treks, on en a pour son argent, et surtout on parcours la cappadoce de long en large, on ne rate rien des lieux importants tout en allant au fin fond des choses ! Loin des tours opérateurs en bus qui durent la journée et vous font voir des boutiques plutôt que les sites intéressants. Juste grandiose. Merci IDTrek !

Yulia

Каппадокия - это действительно другая планета - незабываемые пейзажи! Это нужно видеть своими глазами!

Anabella

The routes of each day are well balanced, we walk a lot but we see a lot of beautiful things. The return to the hotel each evening is cool to rest. Good atmosphere and good places. The weather was pleasant in February.
