    Our brilliant weekend in Konya mystic city. We were very fortunate to find your web online. Had a plan to visit Mevlana’s city a long time before. That was nice to stay 2 days and a night in Konya with a tailor-made program. Wonder if we can stay longer like four days and visit the daily Cappadocia and Catalhoyuk Neolithic and Chalcolithic proto-city settlement from Konya? Anyway, we will make this plan for our next visit. All the company group was very friendly and helpful online while making the plan, bookings, and daily take care of us. It’s nice to see you as our family members. They cherished us so well and all our visits that the tour guide took us in had hidden extras! We got more than what we paid for the Konya tour package. Konya is a different class with high vibration and our local guides taught us too much about Turkish history and the depth of Sufism knowledge in and around Konya. The local people are so friendly, the foods are excellent just like the surroundings and prices are reasonable. This city is definitely a place we could come back to time and time again. Thank you all very much for looking after us:) see you all soon. Maybe I should wait for the time of Seb-i Arus commemoration ceremonies for Mevlana in Konya. Is it a good time to visit Konya during the Seb-i Arus commemoration ceremonies for Mevlana? Thank you very much again.

    We had one day to spend in Istanbul, on our way home. Someone recommended me to contact Mr. Erkan from for the daily tour of Konya. I called and told him that we have limited time and if he can, arrange a trip for us to Konya from Istanbul. He helped me to book the tour online here. A quick visit to Mevlana’s Konya from Istanbul. They had impeccably arranged everything, from my hotel pickup, airport transfers and pick-ups, super guided tour. Thanks to everyone for their help and gave us an unforgettable day in Konya.

    Highly Recommend!!! We were given the company details of this tour by a trusted source so we knew that would be good before we went. From the initial communication on whatsapp through to the collection and drop off, the service was excellent. The trip itself was amazing and we explored so much more information. The guides were very knowledgeable and they know what special. Highly recommend this tour company. Try that in Turkey. Don’t look elsewhere, you won’t lose.
