Turkey tour reviews

From the instant out tour started we knew Burhan Coskun was going to be the best of the best tour guide. His knowledge of times dates and history was extraordinary. He transported me (us) back in time. Many times I just was blown away with the WOW factor of the sights. Burhan is so passionate about his country's history. His caring and understanding of us was so reassuring. He always told us what was coming up next and how far to the next stop. It was a full on tour hence the name "On the GO" and one has to be prepared physically. It was a fabulous tour. Also what was so special was Burhan had a bag of Red Gerbera flowers for us to place at Gallipoli - not many dry eyes at that gesture.

I would also like to make special mention of our driver, Ali. He was awesome, his driving is the very best and we all felt very safe and secure and never felt nervous. Burhan and Ali complimented each other extremely well, such a good team!! Fantastic tour all round.”

Helen McBride • Submitted 2 Oct 2017

Turkey was my number 1 on my bucket list. This is my 40th country to visit. I am so lucky we had Burhan as our guide. He is the best guide I have ever had on a tour. He was very patient, gave us a lot of history and information and he is a very good person with a great sense of humour! I really appreciated the wake up calls eAch day, the alloted time for breakfast, getting the luggage out etc was excellent. It was very well organized. Ali was our driver and he was excellent as well. The roads in Turkey were beautiful and I felt totally safe there the whole time. I look forward to taking another tour with your company in 2018! ”

Hagia Sofia | Istanbul | Turkey

The gateway to the east and most people’s starting point in Turkey. Istanbul is a city that needs little introduction – spanning both Europe and Asia it is one of the world’s most fascinating cities with one of the most beautiful harbours.

Kusadasi waterfront

With around 300 days of sunshine per year, it’s little surprise that Kusadasi is such a popular beach holiday destination. There are a number of wonderful restaurants and bars all over the city as well as stunning beaches making it a fantastic place for those seeking a mix of relaxation and excitement. It is also well situated for those seeking to explore the incredible, ancient city of Ephesus, which was built by the Greeks in 10th century BC.

Pamukkale - Cotton Castles

Pamukkale | Turkey

One of Turkey’s most famous sites, Pamukkale is another wonder of nature. Calcium rich mineral waters have cascaded over the cliff’s edge creating these amazing travertines. A quick dip in the warm soothing waters is a must – most hotels in the area take advantage of this geothermal wonderland and have naturally heated pools as wonderful spa facilities.

Cappadocia - Lunar Landscape

Hot air ballooning | Cappadocia | Turkey

Every trip to Turkey really should include Cappadocia. The bizarre rock formations of Turkey’s Central Anatolia are famous the world over. Fairy-like chimneys tower over the special landscape and the Goreme Open Air Museum is a must see. The site is particularly spectacular first thing in the morning when you can opt to take an unforgettable balloon ride over the area.

Oludeniz - Blue Lagoon

View on map
Oludeniz beach

Blended with turquoise and aqua marine, it is easy to see why Oludeniz, a stunning secluded bay on a beautiful blue lagoon is one of the most photographed beaches in Turkey. Construction is prohibited here and it is also a national nature reserve so it is one of Turkey’s best beaches to visit. Paragliding is a big thing here and it gives you a fantastic view of the bay from the air.

Konya - Whirling Dervishes

View on map

Konya is a mystical city, home to the magical whirling dervishes, a member of the Sufi faith who wear a long white dress and spin in circles for 15 minutes at a time. The town is deeply historical, the site of a number of ancient settlements and civilisations though nowadays, Konya is recognised for its strong economy and respected university, giving the town a unique blend of history and modernity.
