Private Shore Excursions (family of 7):

Good Afternoon,
I wanted to email you to follow up on my experience with your company. I must tell you that our guide for the Ephesus - Mr. Tanner - provided such an excellent experience that it was for everyone in our party the highlight of our 14 day vacation.

During our trip, we worked with numerous guides in Greece, Turkey and Egypt. I would like you to be aware that Tanner far surpassed any other guide in terms of knowledge, personality, charm, experience, patience and thourough understanding of his country, your industry and the needs and wishes of his customers.

Every moment of our tour of Ephesus was an absolute delight. He provided us with a myriad of illuminating historical facts, a detailed history of the culture, philosophy and lifestyle of the area we were visiting and of modern day Turkish culture as a whole. There was not a single question posed to him that he did not answer graciously, informatively and with wisdom, humor and charm.

It was such a pleasure working with him that we all wished we could have taken him with us on the remainder of our travels. He was incredibly patient with the elder members of our group and made sure that everyone could keep up and have an experience that they would keep as a cherished memory.

I have rarely had the opportunity to work with such an articulate, well educated guide who is so enthusistic about his country and his work. Thank you for an amazing experience and a wonderful opportunity to meet a young man of such great character. We would highly recommend your company and Tanner to anyone we meet who will be travelling to your beautiful country.

Thank you and good wishes to you. Have a lovely day.
Sincerely,
D.Brown

Private Tours:

My daughter and I thank you for setting up our two wonderful tours on Oct. 10 - 11. Of course, we learned so much about the Chora Church and were enchanted by the Rustempasha Mosque on Friday; and on Saturday all the antiquities of Sultanamet were brought alive for us.

But the lasting cultural experiences I really want to thank you for are the kind that you and Tarik provided spontaneously. A Friday highlight for us was the long, informative mezes/raki lunch we shared with you at one of your "haunts." And, on Saturday, Tarik let us in on the purchase of a gold bracelet for a special cousin. And, he spent time explaining wedding preparations.

Those kinds of experiences last long after the pictures of monuments begin to fade. It's that kind of lasting cultural experience we thank you and Tarik for providing. I'm attaching 2 pictures of Tarik with Flat Stanley. We had a lot of good laughs. I want Tarik to know that he was a great sport and lots of fun. Please send the pictures and note to him if you can.

Ephesus Day Trip:

I’m pleased to say that the tour was great and my husband and I were very satisfied with the times, places and guide that we had.

Our guide “Charlie” was very knowledgeable, ready to answer our questions and show us the best angles for pictures, and the driver of our van was very polite – they even bought us some pomegranates after I wasn’t able to drink some juice !

I think the trip was worthwhile to be done in 1 day, since we wouldn’t have much more time to do it, and we had a wonderful time – thank you for arranging the pick up earlier than we had scheduled once we were able to change our flight time.

I’ll certainly recommend your services to friends of mine who go to Turkey – it’s a great advantage to have a trusted tour company with which you can arrange your trip via email or the internet.

Regards,
FG


Private Tour Programs:

I want to take this opportunity to let you know that the tour we arranged below completely met our expectations.

In particular I want to express our complete satisfaction with Mr. Birdal (the guide). He was quite professional in his approach. He exhibited a great deal of knowledge at each of our sites and in some cases was quite innovative to get us the most out of each site visit.

We will enthusiastically recommend his services to our friends traveling to Turkey.

Thanks again for making our short visit very informative and enjoyable.

Best regards,

Private Tours, Australia:

I just wanted to write and say thankyou for organising us on our fabulous non stop amazing Istanbul week. It was a remarkable city and the whole experience was an absolute pleasure.

You are a fabulous tour operator and we feel very privileged to have had you as our guide and expert on all things ancient and modern.

Our favourite afternoon was sitting on the motor boat talking about Turkey, Istanbul and its people, history and politics….that’s a rare experience for visitors to foreign lands!

So thankyou thankyou, we will be back and hope you will be there! We are expecting to see you here though - sooner rather than later!

Kind regards,
Julie


Private Tours, Brazil:

Dear Gurkan,
We would like to thank you for your excellent organization of our excursions in Istanbul. The trip to Ephesus was a great experience; the guide was excellent, the taxi services and plane trips were perfectly organized and executed; the taxi service to and from the airport was excellent.

In short: thanks for the very professional and kind service. If you would like to, we would be very glad to recommend your services to the Four Seasons.

We certainly look forward to calling on you again when we return to beautiful Turkey and Istanbul.
Kind regards,
K.C.


Private City Tours, USA:

We were very pleased with our guide Dalim and have recommended him and your agency to friends who will visit Istanbul in the fall. 

Dalim helped us understand your country and culture and provided wonderful background for all the sites, gave us tips on shopping, and even found our "lost" husbands in the Blue Mosque! He provided much insight into the history of your wonderful city with his knowledgeable answers to our nonstop questions.

Certainly a highlight of our stay was the fabulous motor-yacht tour. We felt like rock stars in that boat!! A special memory was the detour to the yogurt shop along the water route!

Everything was perfect. We wouldn't change a thing! We also appreciated Dalim's suggestions for sites to see on our own prior to the ship's sailing.

With appreciation for your services,
Herb and Kathy

I already recommended you to some friends and hopefully next year I will be back to visit the rest that I missed for a lack of time. All the best to all of you.

I have no words to express how happy I am… thank you might not be enough!!

Private Bosphorus Cruise (15 people, Greece) :

I would like to thank you for the exellent cruise you arranged for us in Bosphorus. The guide, was very polite, helpfull and had a great deal of knowlege. The day on Bosphorus was one of the best we had in Istanbul.

Whenever I will be back you are going to be the first to contact for the arrangements of my trip.
All the best

Istanbul Shore Excursion (6 people, USA) :

We had the most wonderful time in Istanbul thanks to the tour. Istanbul was by far the favorite city we visited on our entire cruise and yours was the best tour we had in any of the cities. Simply stated, we cannot possibly say enough positive praise for your organization and for our guide in particular.

We had very limited time available, and our guide made maximum use of every minute, showing us the sites and explaining the history and significance of them in ways we would never have understood without him. The pace was excellent and the information was fantastic. The vehicle used was exceptional and very comfortable. Again, it is not possible to say enough positive things about our experience.

Dalim took us to a former Madrasah that we would never have visited on our own. I think if when we return to Istanbul, we could spend most of a day just visiting the school and looking at the crafts. We had never seen the practice of marbling before and were very facinated to watch the painters work. Dalim did a great job of never making us feel rushed or hurried - everything was done at our own pace. This is just one small example of how much more we got out of the trip because of your excellent tour service.

My only regret is that we did not schedule more excursions with you. We should have scheduled a trip in Izmir and also for the first night we arrived in Istanbul. However, that will have to wait for our next trip some time in the future.

We would be happy to serve as references for anyone who would like to hear how wonderful your service is. Please let me know if I can provide any other recommendation for you. We will certainly suggest others use your services in the future and will do so on the cruise ship forums to encourage others to visit you.

Thank you again very much for all your help! Again, please give our greatest gratitude to our guide for being perfect on the trip.

Yours truly,

Mark B


Gallipoli & Troy Tour (2 people) :

I wanted to let you know that we had the most wonderful time. Our driver was waiting right on time at our hotel for us on the morning of departure. The vehicle was wonderful - very comfortable, especially for the long drive ahead. Our driver (I am sorry I cant remember his name) was fabulous -  he drove very carefully (we had had some interesting cab rides in Istanbul!!!) and we were more than happy with him over the two days.

Once we had arrived and had some lunch we met our guide, Aykut  and headed off. We cannot speak highly enough of Aykut - we were looking forward to going to Gallipoli, but we were so blessed with the most wonderful guide. He was so knowledgable and taught us so much, not only about our own country but also about Turkey. Nothing was too much trouble for him and his passion and love of history just shone through. We commented to eachother many times how lucky we were to have such a wonderful guide.

The whole trip was better than we had hoped and we were more than happy with everything we did. I can highly recommend your service and especially your guide and driver, because they very much made our trip the success that it was.

Aykut certainly left a wonderful impression on us and we were so greatful for all that he taught us and his friendly nature. He certainly evoked passion and interest out of us during the two days.

So, again thank you and please pass on our gratitude once more to both Aykut and the driver - we hope to one day come back to Gallipoli and go the the Anzac Day service with Aykut!!!

Regards, Leisha W.


Private Cappadocia Day Trip (2 people):

Hi Gurkan, tour was great despite the weather!  Have already recommended your services to both the Four Seasons and friends going to Turkey!  All in all was great and thanks for everything!
A.K.


Gallipoli Day Trip (2 people):

Our trip to Gallipoli was excellent, even better than we could have hoped. Atilla was a safe and friendly driver and Aykut the best guide we could ask for.

He gave us all the information we needed on the history of the place in a way which was easy to understand and thorough. He also put it all into a world context both historically and for now. We were both very impressed by him and grateful to have had him as our guide. It was a terrific day.

I will definitely be recommending your tour to friends and family. Especially as it was so easy to organise also. The only thing I would have changed was to have more time there but that was my problem not yours!

Thank you again and if I can convince my parents to make the trip here from Australia I will definitely organise our tour through you.

Regards
Philippa


Pamukkale Day Trip (2 people):

Dear Gurkan,
Turkey was excellent, I hope to be back again one day. The people are so friendly. It was such a short visit, but good.

The day trip was very good. Everything went smoothly and Sefa was a great guide for the day.

I would recommend it, if people like us had only a short stay in Turkey (just 4 nights). We live in Vancouver Canada, so may not be able to visit again for a long time. So someone in this situation where they really want to see Pamukalle I think it's worthwhile. It's the most expensive day trip I've ever taken, but great memories.

I read horror stories about Pamukalle how it has been damaged and you can see it, but still it's impressive to see what nature can do. I really liked Aphrodisias too the amphitheatre and stadium we nice. The little museum had great sculptures too. Being winter, we had the place almost to ourselves too.

I think it was the small things that make it memorable, Sefa took us for a breakfast when we arrived in a small restaurant in a village, they served a traditional stretched pizza like food. Great seeing it made in the oven. The Orange seller we bought oranges from. Seeing the old lady walking on the side of the road in traditional dress carrying a mountain of sticks!

I'm always a little nervous booking over the internet, but you gave us confidence from our first communication.

I would not hesitate to recommend your company to friends who are visiting.

Best Regards
Dean


Ephesus & Cappadocia Day Trips:

Mr. Ozis, everything has gone so smoothly! We've LOVED our one-day tours to Ephesus and Cappadocia! Tonight is our dinner and cultural show....THANKS so much for being so efficient and in touch in advance of our trip.

We're so far away and yet the technology made everything so easy! We'll never forget your good service. Feel free to use my comments as testimonials, if you wish.

May 2008 bring you peace and prosperity!

Shore Excursion

'We have already returned (too soon) from our trip to Greece. I just wanted to let you know how fully satisfied my little family group of 5 was with our guide (your friend Borat) and our visit to Ephesus and the Home of the Virgin Mary. This is the only way to see these sites and avoid the rush of large bus excursion tours.

Borat was absolutely fantastic. He was waiting for us as we disembarked and moved us along with the limited time the cruise offers on shore. It was great to have such personal attention with so much insight into the surroundings and history of the region. One member of our group has difficulty with his hearing but Borat has such a clear articulate voice that our party member had no problem what so ever hearing everything.

Everyone in our group agreed that this visit to Ephesus was the highlight of the cruise and a large part because of Borat and his driver. Please pass along our many thanks once again to Borat and the driver.

Hopefully in the future we will have an opportunity to return to Turkey with more time to visit your country. If that shall come to pass I will be sure to contact you and make arrangements for tours.

I also will recommend you to anyone I know that may be planning future trips to Turkey or cruise stops to Turkey.

Thank you very much,
John B.

Ephesus & Cappadocia Day Trips

'Wow! I went on two tours with you, one in Ephesus and one in Cappadocia. They were both fabulous and both of the guides were educated and interesting. They filled our days with fun and interesting things we wanted to do. I wouldn't want to do it any other way!

Private Yacht Cruise on the Bosphorus

‘We just returned home from our cruise a couple of days ago, and I simply wanted to thank you for the wonderful Bosphorus cruise. My wife and I immensely enjoyed the tour as well as our conversation with you.

You live in a magical city. We saw many beautiful places during our cruise but Istanbul undoubtedly was the highlight of our trip. We have no doubt that we will return soon if able, and will surely contact you in advance.

I have given your name to some friends of ours that will be in Istanbul next week to attend a meeting; you may hear from them.

Should you ever decide to visit India, particularly Bombay, please drop me a line and I'll try to make some helpful suggestions. Of course, if you visit the US, please contact us!

Shore Excursion

‘We returned home over the weekend. Our trip was wonderful, and one of the highlights was the time we spent with Ali touring the Kusadasi/Ephesus area. He and our driver were both great, and I will certainly recommend your firm to friends.We're already talking about a return trip to Turkey, including Istanbul, and will contact you if we do so.

Thanks again for all you did to enhance our cruise vacation.

Event & Conference Organization

'This event was very smoothy organized. Our group was highly satisfied with the service from the moment we were picked up at the hotel, right down to the meal and entertainment provided on the boat. I should also add that the views of the Bosphorus were spectacular during the evening. The boat suited our needs perfectly.
Thanks again for your most efficient service,

Istanbul Tour

We were exceptionally satisfied with our private tour led by Bulent. He was superb -- knowledgeable, articulate, charismatic and thoroughly in tune with our needs and interests. We especially appreciate the care he took in wheeling our handicapped friend around in her wheelchair. It was not an easy task, but he did it happily and willingly.

As for the sights we saw, Bulent took us to everything we wanted to see. For us, the most impressive tour was in the Roman Cisterns -- really quite incredible.

We would definitely recommend your services to our friends/colleagues in the future. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any written recommendations.

Again, thank you for making our stay in Istanbul a memorable experience!

Best regards,

Istanbul & Ephesus Shore Excursions

I just wanted to let you know how much fun we had on our tours with your company in Istanbul and Kusadasi.

It was a little colder than we had anticipated but we managed and appreciate your letting us adjust things to our time frame. We loved Nil, she was a lot of fun. It was truly an adventure and she was so helpful in helping us figure things out and helping us buy things and helping us to communicate.

We loved our trip to Ephesus, and especially to Sirince. What a great place to go. We had great fun with our guide Borak (not sure of the spelling) and the experience in the village was so nice. Not anyone else from our cruise was there and it was nice to see the locals making the things that they sell.

It was by far the best experience we had, on our cruise to be with our own group and the flexability was great also. We got to see things we would not have otherwise.

Thanks so much,
A.M.’

Istanbul Tour

We had a wonderful visit to Istanbul and it was made so enjoyable by having Bulent has a tour guide. He took us to so many wonderful places and gave us very thorough explanations of the sights and the historical significant facts of each area that we had visited. We liked that he took us to shops and markets were he personally knew the shop keepers and we stayed away from those that had a number of tourists gathered about. We couldn’t have been more pleased and I have passed on your information to our Travel Agent with high recommendations to contact you if she has anybody who will be coming to your area or to Turkey.

Thank you again.
Best Regards,

Trip to Turkey

We truly enjoyed our trip to Turkey. The guide you arranged was very knowledgeable as both a guide and driver. We loved all of the tour and would recommend all the places we visited. Ephesus was Mike's favorite, I was amazed at Pamukkale. There were no negatives! Our hotel was wonderful, nice to be in a quiet place with a beautiful view.

We would be happy to recommend your services and hope to do so to our friends.

Thank you for helping us have a great trip!

Turkey Tours

‘Not just I, but my entire group was extremely satisfied with all aspects of our tours in Turkey with your company. I think what we enjoyed most was having a guide that spoke our language and was brimming with pride of country and with all of the information about the areas we'd be touring. To be honest with you, several of our group members and their families and friends back at home were a bit frightened about visiting your country because of the unrest in that part of the world; your guides took away all of those concerns and we felt totally safe the entire time. The rooftop meal was a special treat and the view was spectacular; I suggest you include it with all tours of Istanbul! It was also great to have our guide help us nagivate with large purchases in the Grand Bazar.

There is a large travel agency that I use for our 2-3 trips per year and my agent's name is ____; I've used him for many years. I have already praised your tours to him, and with your permission, I'll forward your name and email address.

Many thanks,

Ephesus Tour

We were very pleased with the tour at Kusadasi and Burak was very knowledgeable about Efesis and we had a great time for the entire day, and the shrine to the Virgin Mary was short and relaxing, which was my wife's favorite place, for my self it was Efesis just being at a place with so much history.

About Istanbul it was great the whole day, we enjoyed your company and the tours, my favorite place was the Hagia Sofia which was the main reason of my cruise and it was fascinating to see the magnitude of the building and the wear and tear of the building, I was amazed with how much the floors are worn out especially on the mezzanine.

We would recommend your services to any one that we know that will be taking this cruise or going to be in Istanbul on their own.

Thank you for your professionalism and knowledge you share with us about your country.

Custom Turkey Trip

The trip was wonderful. The people that we met were unfailingly kind to us. One man in Bursa walked at least a mile to see us to our hotel and in Antalya a man sent his son in the car with us when he could not explain how to find the hotel.

The Ford Focus was a wonderful car. The roads were fine and the Turkish drivers far less aggressive than the ones in New York. They drive fast but not with the anger that we have here. We even left the big highway to take a shorter route from Bursa to Bergama. That was great because we saw how country people lived.

As for our accommodations, we loved the Yesil Ev in Istanbul. The concierges were particularly kind and took very good care of us. The location is great and its old world air is charming. We also liked the Berksoy in Bergama. Its location is perfect. We also ate there as there did not seem to be any restaurant in town that made it worthwhile going back after a long day. Also we especially liked the hotel in Kusadasi. We had a wonderful view out over the sea. Its outdoor bar is attractive, and again we ate there because we were too tired to bother to take a taxi into town.

All in all we had a most wonderful time and appreciate the arrangements that you made for us. We came away with the most wonderful impression of Turkey and its people. We would recommend your company highly.

Many thanks for everything,

Gallipoli Tour

Thank you for your email. It had been my intention to contact you once we returned to Perth. We seem to have been non-stop since arriving home. Both my husband and I had a wonderful day and cannot praise both the driver and Resat our guide enough. The vehicle was extremely comfortable and being just the two of us, plus driver and guide, we had plenty of room to spread out. Your driver was excellent and at no stage did we feel at all concerned with his driving.

We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had Resat as our guide. His knowledge was excellent and we both learnt quite a lot from him. Resat was very friendly and obliging, nothing seemed to be too much for him and he was obviously keen to make sure we were comfortable and saw as much as we could, which I might add was the entire Gallipoli area.

We have spoken to a number of our friends about our wonderful day and would have no hesitation in recommending your company for private tours.

Should be make it back to your amazing city, we will certainly make contact with you.

Thank you and with much appreciation.

Turkey trip

We hope all is well with you. I just wanted to thank you for making our trip to Turkey so wonderful. We so enjoyed meeting you and having you teach us so much about all the wonders of Istanbul. You made the history come alive for us. We loved Istanbul and are already talking about trying to get back there next year. Thank you also for setting us up with the guides in Canakkale and Izmir, they were both wonderful and we enjoyed them very much. I am embarrassed that I can not remember their names right now. We went to the guides parents house in Canakkale and we had a nice visit. The people in Turkey are so friendly.

We just arrived home last night after almost 6 weeks in Europe. We all agreed that Istanbul was one of the highlights of our trip. We were so surprised at the reasonable prices of your services and our tour guide was wonderful. My husband had a great time at the spice market and we are now delivering our candy we bought to our friends. The one merchant our guide recommended vacuum sealed our candy and baklavah! The drivers were so polite and efficient. Our tour guide was always patient with us, on time and helped us with our every need. We plan to visit your city again in the future and will definitely use your services. We were so appreciative of our table at the Belly dance show and thought the girls were the best we had ever saw. By the way, our hotel was one of the finest on the trip!

Sincerely,
JD and TU.'
