i'll be travelling through turkey in late october and wondering if the pre-arranged tours are worth the extra expense or should i just do a self led exploration (i.e. public transport or hire car)?
Don't know about "best way" because that is personal choice
We found local guides in Cannakele that were more than worth their fee, and I don't do "guides" very often.
Would be interested to hear other ideas, as the above is only my experience from the single trip I did in 2007 about 4 years ago
