Delightful day, very interesting. I was happy to find out that there were tours taking you to modern history sites. To be honest, I’m not really familiar with Turkey’s modern history and it was super that I went on this tour. A tour guide told us everything! We visited some battlefields from world war and some memorials. It was an alternative experience, but with many great information and huge lessons to learn. We also had a tasty lunch, and I must say the organisation and the schedule were perfect. I strongly recommend this tour. Very, very interesting experience.
