    I am delighted to write a review for the 8 days top selling Turkey tour package offered by ToursCE. This tour is an excellent way to explore the highlights of Turkey, including Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, and Ephesus, all in just eight days. The tour began with a convenient pick-up from the airport in Istanbul and a comfortable drive to our hotel. Our knowledgeable and friendly guide provided us with a comprehensive itinerary and ensured that we had a great experience throughout the tour. We started with a full day tour of Istanbul, exploring the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the Topkapi Palace, all of which were fascinating and rich in history. The next day, we flew to Cappadocia and enjoyed a full-day tour of the region’s stunning valleys, fairy chimneys, and ancient rock formations. The hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia at sunrise was a highlight of the tour. From Cappadocia, we flew to Pamukkale, a natural wonder known for its calcium-rich hot springs and terraced pools. We spent a full day exploring the pools and the ancient city of Hierapolis, which was once a thriving center of commerce and culture. Finally, we visited Ephesus, one of the best-preserved ancient cities in the world. We explored the Temple of Artemis, the Library of Celsus, and the Grand Theater, which was once able to seat 25,000 people. Throughout the tour, our guide provided us with a wealth of information about the history, culture, and traditions of Turkey. We learned about the ancient civilizations that once thrived in these regions and their unique architecture and art. The hotels and restaurants selected by ToursCE were excellent, and we enjoyed delicious Turkish cuisine throughout the tour. Overall, the pop selling Turkey tour package for 8 days offered by ToursCE was a fantastic experience, and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable travel experience in Turkey.
