Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Turkey. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.
We picked this tour because of the name Christmas Turkey. Neither of us had been to Turkey before and were interested to find out about the country that is often in the news for the wrong reasons. We were very pleasantly surprised as despite there being a bombing just before we left we felt perfectly safe in the country and everybody we met was very helpful. Turkey is really suffering because of bad press. Tourism is down 80%. Turkey is a fascinating country so rich in culture and history. Having travelled around a large part of it we could see why so many nations wanted to invade it. For us Ephesus, Pamakkale and Cappadoccia ( and our snowman built on Xmas Day ) were the highlights and we felt we only scratched the surface and so intend to return. We both came home feeling thoroughly enriched by the experience and empowered.
The government is investing hugely in the economy building big highways to link the west to the east , tunnels under the Bosphorus, a huge water pipeline under the Mediterranean sea sharing water from Turkey with Northern Cyprus.Recep was an excellent guide and prepared to answer any question the group posed. He made sure the whole group was catered for and consequently everyone gelled very well. It was a very special way to spend Christmas 2016”
This tour was fantastic, exactly what I wanted to get in terms of learning some history and culture of Turkey. Recep was very knowledgeable, he provided enough information and background for us to understand what we were looking and needed to look. The driver worked hard and often had to drive a long time to reach the sites. I really enjoyed this holiday.
The tour was great. Tour Guide Erkan Can was knowledgable, helpful, humorous, attentive and so much more. I learned a lot from him. My checked luggage did not arrive at Ataturk Airport when I did. Erkan got involved immediately in trying to sort out the problem which enabled me to relax. With his help, I got my luggage before leaving Istanbul. I cannot say enough good things about him as he made my trip one of the best I have ever taken. I would also like to pass on some comments about our driver, Cengiz Tanrivermis. He was so helpful also; eager to do anything he could to meet our requests. He has a great personality and was a pleasure to be with each day. This was my first On The Go Tour and it was just perfect from beginning to ending. ”
