Your company were brilliant from beginning to ending and made our honeymoon a very special one. we have memories of Turkey that we will always remember!The Guides were exceptional guides and extremely conscientious.Some of them took us to dinner at a local restaurant as we were unable to speak the language, which was not on the tour and greatly appreciated by us.The hotel locations was not having any shopping places. Basically it was in a hardware market are.We recommended your company to people while we were travelling because you were so good and your planned trip was not of your standard.

The overall impression of the organisation is very well. It was a excellent way of relaxation on the tour with the chance of having a view at the scenery. Each time we had a issues or a request, the guides quickly responded and meet our expectations and interests. All our guides were extremely conscientious, pleasant, and enjoyable to be with. They were always so kind and functional in helping to find alternatives when we needed. Hotels. Excellent in general, very good hotels, good breakfast, facilities, good location. In the summer of next year I m planning to take another tour this time for between 5 - 15 days and I will most certainly be coming to Turkey with your organisation. I did enjoy visiting all the sights included in my trip and had a absolute enjoyable times.
