    Amazing amazing amazing Sufi tour!! Must book this trip if you want to visit Mevlana and his city. My husband and I booked this trip last minute when we arrived in Istanbul after searching we came across the Toursce travel online. Their staff at the office is superb. He gave us all the tour details on the whatsapp, we saw and chat with him on WhatsApp. Tuna was really accomodating in trying to fit us in the next day and booked us in immediately. It was truly mesmerizing and informative our local tour guide was brilliant. That was such a spiritual and emotional day for us. We visited the tomb of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi and went to many other landmarks in the Konya and it was magical. Our local tour guide gave us an unforgettable experience here in Konya. On this, we will never forget because of the detail and secrets told. Also, we had the opportunity to meet a whirling dervish too and it was a good experience too. If I had the opportunity, I would definitely return and do it all over again. Thank you soo much again. we loved Konya!
