13 Day Affordable Trip to Turkey
I am a retired mom who loves traveling and seeing the world. When traveling, I enjoy experiencing the local culture more than anything else and this Turkey trip was extremely rewarding in that fashion.
I mostly do self-guided tours and do my own homework. This time it was a bit different because 3 of my friends wanted me to join them in a 13 days guided tour. As a pretty much first time participant of guided tour, I followed them with this travel company, Gate 1 Travel. They were pretty good and I would recommend them to anyone because of the price to quality ratio. For a 13 day tour going around almost all of Turkey, including flight, food, lodging and a bit of shopping, I spend just under $2000 USD.
Guided tour is probably more affordable than self-guided. Combine that with no stress in a foreign language environment, and the people I’ve met are very nice, I would definitely recommend it. As I am getting older, I also have to consider about security issues, which guided tour might be more accommodating. For those who are searching for deals, I think Gate 1 Travel is a good place to consider.
Just some personal thoughts, thanks!
