Student Reviews

Turkey my love
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Turkish population is welcoming and friendly. I discovered a new lifestyle, I don't think there's anything to improve in this trip, plus it seems there's a classical syndrome following a trip in Turkey : people fall in love with the country, and I'm no exception. I believe you have to take part of several trips like this one to find and fulfill yourself.
