I loved this tour, its a fun filled tour and I met some great new friends, travelling solo.

Our tour guide Burhan was great and such a treat.”  

Riana Goosen • Submitted 21 Jul 2019

We were lucky enough to do the hot air ballooning in Cappadocia. This is the ultimate bucket list item to tick a picture will never give you a complete picture. Throughout this tour, Burhan who needs special recognition was incredible. Not only was he knowledgeable but brought humour to the tour! He is an asset to On The Go Tours.”
