Our super cheap, but all inclusive tour, included free sightseeing tour to Anatolia, with compulsory visit shops. I do not even know where we were more on historical facilities or commercial. Once again made sure that if go somewhere, then yourself, you will see much more and remember. Although if free, and there is a desire zataritsya dust collectors and leather jackets, then completely. On the jacket, by the way, we dropped the price from $ 1000 to $ 350, but we didn’t buy the truth, had fun.

They tortured us completely, but only one thing warmed us – a tour of Antalya it’s free. Here it is our Russian mentality! And the shops are made tricky, entrance from one side and exit from the other, and the bus accordingly waits at the exit. Therefore, I quickly went out and breathed fresh air, and at the same time caught planes in the lens.
