Trip books are included in all our tours. Our trip books are complete packages of information which will help you to find your way through the itinerary we have created for you. Putting in significant time end effort, we have compiled this book which includes Google Earth Maps, Highlighted routes, Touristic information, pick up and drop off points and easy to follow directions with pictures.

GPS 

Although, most of the routes along the tours are very well way marked, we decided to provide GPS units which are simple to use, easy to read nonetheless sophisticated devices.

All you have to do is follow the route shown on the device. 1 GPS is provided for every group.

Mobile Phone

With the experiences we have had, we thought that it is best to provide every group with a mobile phone with a pre-paid Turkish sim-card. This helps a a lot in making arrangements during the trip. The phone numbers of the hotels, emergency numbers and the contact details for the company are already listed in the mobile phone.
