Postcards from Turkey

Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us.



I went on the Turkey Discovered 14 Days tour which started in Istanbul I believe on August 18th, 2013 (I get confuses as to what day is was as I was travelling from Canada). The reason that I am writing to you is to let you know how much I enjoyed this tour, Tureky is a beautiful country with so much history. Simply AMAZING !! I will never be able to say enough about what I experienced while I was there.

A great addition to this wonderful vacation was meeting our tour guide Metin. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Turkey and we all could see proud he is of his country. His stories were entertaining and made all of us laugh A LOT... Metin is a kind soul and I just wanted to take a moment out to say Thank You On The Go Tours for letting us share our journey with Metin... I will always remember him !!!

Thank you for taking these few moments.

   Turkey Discovered - 14 Days

My family and I recently arrived home from an On The Go Turkey Discovered Tour. We had such a fantastic time and a lot of that can be attributed to our tour guide Yusuf Özdur. His archaeological and historical knowledge was superb, and this made our visits to Ephesus, Pergamon, Heirapolis and Troy very special days. But is was also his command of a whole range of facts and figures relating to the economy, culture, religion and many other areas which gave an extremely well-rounded insight into an intriguing country. Yet this information was always balanced with personal anecdotes and humour that meant we got a unique and rich insight. His organisational skills were equally impressive. When our planned Cappadocia balloon flight was cancelled due to weather conditions, he managed to find time for one the following day. Lunch stops and shopping destinations avoided crowds and he always managed to find great places to eat. All in all it was a wonderful trip and we hope to return for another further east in Turkey in the next couple of years hopefully with Yusuf as the guide.

Hi Emma,

I just want to write to you to let you know I had an awesome time with on the go in Turkey! I was lucky enough to be put in a group with girls my age so met a couple of “soul mates for life”. Our guide was also phenomenal!

We have had the most amazing time on our Turkey tour, our guide Metin had a brilliant sense of humor and kept us very entertained during the bus trips. He was very knowledgeable and offered great insight into the history of Turkey.

We were so surprised at all the historical sites that this tour offered and learnt so much. Everything was so well organized and we didn't have to queue at any of the excursions.

Well done On the go and Metin a truly wonderful trip.

   Turkey Discovered - 14 Days

Dear On the Go,

In September last year my mum and I took a Turkey Discovered tour to celebrate my mums 60th birthday.
This was the first time either of us had ever taken a guided tour and it was the first time we had been to Turkey, and let me tell you, the tour and Turkey completely exceeded any expectation we had.
Our tour guide Kemal was an exceptional host. From the afternoon cruising the Bosphorus when we first met him right though to our very last day, he was always so friendly, professional and spoke in a way which captivated the group, making every day more interesting than the previous day. Everything was so well organised and after a couple of days I was not so nervous about leaving my bag in front of my room for collection every morning. I can't fault anything about the tour, the guide, our driver or the hospitality we received wherever we stopped.
I have to say though, what made this tour so unforgettable for me and without saying, for my mum, was the way the group and especially Kemal made my mum feel so special on her 60th birthday.
After a breathtaking morning hot air ballooning and a day enjoying the landscapes of Cappadocia, we returned to our room where a sweet little cake was waiting for my mum. Not only did she get this cake, Kemal arranged a beautiful birthday cake for my mum and made a beautiful speech for her.
It was these little extra things that showed us that Kemal cares for his tourists and will go above what is expected of him to ensure our trip is memorable.
I can't speak highly enough of On the Go and Kemal, I would recommend anyone to take this tour....I just hope they too are lucky enough to get a great guide like we did...

Hi Sarah
Just a note to thank you for the comprehensive Turkey holiday that you put together for us. It worked very well from start to finish and we could not have packed any more in. There was such a lot to see and we enjoyed every minute of it. Cappadocia was such an amazing place to visit with a new sight round every corner. We loved Istanbul and i'm glad that you encouraged us to have an extra day there.
