Self, wife and two kids ages seven and eleven opted for the Seven Churches tour in Turkey. It was a truly a wonderful and knowledge-enriching experience in visiting the seven old cities which had the Seven Churches as mentioned in the Book of Revelation. Our Tour Guide, Mr. Emre, was very flexible and truly, his guests satisfaction was his top priority! We also savored the food in each of the restaurant we visited for lunch! Overall, it was indeed an engaging experience throughout the whole tour. But what was truly heartwarming was whenever he capped every visit to each old city with the corresponding verse from the Book of Revelation!
