Our guide Ali was

Review for: Turkish Delights

Our guide Ali was very knowledgeable about the history and culture. Hotels were in an excellent location. The highlight of the trip was Pergamum and Konya. The coaches were clean and well maintained. I felt safe with the driver the whole trip. I did take the balloon tour in Cappadocia, and while usually afraid of heights, I felt safe and calm the entire ride. The shopping stops were fine, as we learnt about leather working in Turkey as well as carpet making. However I thought the folk lore dinner and show in Cappadocia could have been missed. As this finished quite early, perhaps an option to drop off in town as the hotel is only a 10 minute walk.

Hi Tim, Thanks for your review. We will pass on the feedback about the folk lore dinner. Most people quite like this, as it reflects the traditional culture with the whirling dervishes. Glad you enjoyed the rest of the trip. Konya truly is a site to see.

The tour was great value

Review for: Aegean Shore

The tour was great value for money. I felt that the itinerary was too rushed, as we only spent a day at each destination. Ephesus was the highlight of our trip, and whilst we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, next time we will tour create our own itinerary to see all of Turkey at a slower pace.

I wasnt well when I arrived

Review for: Western Shore

I wasn't well when I arrived and Ersa booked a dentist. I really appreciate the care she gave me, as well as the speed in which the dentist arrived in Istanbul on a Sunday afternoon. The hot air balloon ride was unbelievable and I will never forget it. I really enjoyed the cultural aspect of Turkey. We were a small group of only 7 people, which is why we chose this tour. Esra was able to give us a lot of information about Turkey, its people and its history. She was patient with us and very friendly. I'm glad we had her as our guide. Hakan was also a lot of fun as well as a great driver.

Hi Majda, Great to hear you enjoyed the tour. All our Turkey tours operate as small group departures, which is perfect for touring around the destination. Glad to hear your guide was attentive to your medical issue. Thank you for your support.
