I was collected by Borack, and taken to the various sites - Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern, the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar. He had pre-purchased the tickets, so we were able to avoid the really long queues. His information was invaluable into the places I was seeing, as my knowledge was very limited, but thanks to him, I have gained a respectful insight into the culture and history. Unbeknownst to me, I was coming down with salmonella poisoning, so was unable to try the Turkish treats he recommended! I also had a fall whilst we were on the tour, and he was most gallant in his concern for my welfare - carrying my bags etc. I give him top marks for the service he provided.
The guide for the tour to Gallipoli and Troy (I can't remember his name, but it started with 'M') was again a most proficient guide. The information he gave us was again invaluable, and displayed the respect by the Turkish people to the Anzacs, and is something I found comforting knowing our soldiers were buried with dignity in these foreign soils. The grave sites are well maintained by the Turks, and it is very fitting that a really strong bond has been formed between our nations. Although the two days in the Gallipoli region were full on, I feel honoured to have visited there. As I mentioned earlier, I was not very well at the time, which made it a little difficult for me.
My only 'complaint' and I probably wouldn't even call it that, was the fact that I was left on my own on the second day after the tour to Troy. I was able to look around the town of Cannakale (spelling ?)at my leisure, but did find it difficult, as nobody seemed to speak English - my problem, not theirs. ”
The tour was well planned and the tour guide, Yusuf, was hands down the best guide I have ever toured with. The depth of his knowledge on all aspects of Turkish history, culture and current events truly made this trip the most memorable I have ever experienced. Not only was he knowledgeable but he was courteous and affable as well. ”
This was an amazing trip and everything was great. This was my first group tour trip as a single traveler and I am already starting to think about my next trip later this year because it was so fun and learned so much about turkey largely thanks to my tour guide. This trip was very important to me and it 100 percent exceeded my expectation. Thank you so much!!!”
