Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Turkey. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
I absolutely loved this tour. Our guide, Yusuf was fantastic and the whole trip was everything we hoped far and more! Yusuf went above and beyond for everyone. Thank you! ”
I just returned from the Turkey Unplugged tour.
This was an incredible journey for me! Turkey is truly a wondrous and vast country. After an initial bad encounter with an unscrupulous taxi driver, I had a great adventure. Our guide, Mehmet was terrific. He was knowledgeable, patient and kind. He introduced us to many wonderful hidden gems.
The climb to Pergamum was exhausting, but worth it...not just for me at 68, but for much younger adventurers in our group. We all very much enjoyed our guides commentary as we went through the ancient acropolis. All of the sites were interesting, I think I can still feel a few head bumps from the underground city in Cappadocia, but again, very worthwhile seeing if a bit uncomfy on the back for awhile.
I liked the fact that just about everything was included except for the balloon ride.
I would definitely travel with On the Go again. ”
Having returned home from Turkey this weekend, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time I had out there. From the time I arrived at Istanbul airport and was met by the rep, the whole holiday was a tremendous success from start to finish. Yusuf, our guide, was just brilliant and a mine of information, not only about archaeology (his specialist subject), but about everything else connected to Turkey. Sport, politics, the environment, culture etc, he knew it all, and was more than happy to impart it all to the group. Erdogan, our coach driver was without doubt the most polite, courteous, friendly and efficient driver I have ever met. And as for the group, we all seemed to click immediately, and there was a lot of laughter and camaraderie throughout, which made for a thoroughly enjoyable fortnight!
So thank you, once again for organising such a memorable and worthwhile tour. A holiday I will remember for a long time to come. Turkey is a beautiful country with plenty to offer everyone, and is certainly a country I will visit again in the future, particularly if Yusuf is guiding and Erdogan is driving! Now I need to book my next tour!! ”
To dear Burhan,
Just a note to thank you for all you have done to make this a wonderful trip. It was the first bus tour I had been on and after this experience I would certainly do another.
Your knowledge of Turkish history and the sights we visited is enviable. Your warm and friendly nature were most appreciated.
It was so nice to have you taking care of the details so that we could just enjoy all that Turkey has to offer. 'On The Go' are lucky to have someone with your knowledge, skills and passion. I have been fortunate to have their experience under your guidance. It has been a very memorable trip. ”
Thank you for making my first trip to Turkey memorable in so many ways. Your vast knowledge of all things 'Turkey' and the engaging way you make your stories come alive is captivating. And your warmth and friendly demeanour strikes just just the right balance. I have loved this trip and will always remember my time in Turkey with much fondness and a smile. ”
We were very happy with our Turkey tour. We presume our written review information is eventually forwarded to your office but in summary, we can advise that there is not really any aspect about the whole tour that we were not happy with – tour leader (Huseyin) was excellent, pace of the tour was good (although some days were very long but probably necessary), hotels were OK with some better than others, food was fine and overall we would have no hesitation in considering another tour with ‘On The Go tours’ if there was a match between our travel desires and an ‘On The Go tours’ offering. At this stage of our overseas travels, we’re not too sure that we’ll do a lot of organised tours in the future but, if we consider it in the future, we will research specific tours offered by your organisation. ”
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. ”
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... ”
