    After spent few days in Istanbul we decide to go to Masukiye and Sapanca lake. One of the most beautiful places i’ve ever seen. Specialy the lake was just like postcard. Honestly i can live my entire entire life there with no doubts. If you want to get rid off crowded of the city this tour is the best option you can get.

    I went to the istanbul for business. I stayed 8 days in istanbul but I had 2 free days. I was thinking about what I do in istanbul and I entered a agency for ask. They recommended sapanca & & masukiye and I joined the tour. First we visit sapanca lake they offer us turkish tea. it was very beautiful place. After the Sapanca we went the kartepe mountain. they gave us free time and then we visit masukiye. in this tour everywhere is good but masukiye is like dream, like paradise. Everywhere is green place, naturel. I saw 2 different waterfall. We ate lunch at the fish restaurant. it was delicious. Everything was very good. Thank you very much Ahmet for this organize.
