The road leading to the ruins offers breathtaking views over the national park and the gorge. The amphitheater is very well preserved, without any crowds and beautiful nature! You can also have a real experience of Turkish country life.

It was really a very nice tour. The food was great and the experiences were the crowning glory of our trip. We were a bit skeptical at first but were not disappointed. Selge was beautiful, even if the ladies who want to sell you something are a bit clingy and the Canyon was as beautiful as it was scary.. Transfer, pick-up everything was really great
