We booked online, everything was arranged as we were told. The transfers were very convenient – we had a 6yo and a 9yo with us so we wanted everything to be perfect. Lavender fields are amazing, full of smell. We took many many pictures there with the kids.Village was charming as well. We also had a great time at the lake. We walked around and the guide told us many interesting things. The tour is great for families but take sun cream and some hats with you as during summer it’s really hot. Recommended!
The landscape took my breath away! I get so passionate when it comes to nature and this tour was just what I needed. Incredible sceneries, pure, unspoiled. The atmosphere calms you down. Salda lake is out of this world, such an exotic spot. We also went to the fields and they were so beautiful. It was august and the guide told us that summer months are the ideal ones for lavender. From the nearby village I got some nice souvenirs. I suggest you join this tour if you want to relax and take nice photos.
