This European travel company organized our 23 day visit to Turkey and Greece, and it was fantastic! We were very impressed with the talented English-speaking private guides; the transportation and transfers went smoothly between cities and countries; the hotels in each location were luxurious and well located so we could explore on foot when we were having free time. We wanted a full itinerary of tours to the ancient or famous relics and sites, plus several adventurous and fun excursions and also cultural experiences to explore the local communities and peoples... and our travel company exceeded our expectations in all areas. We absolutely LOVED our trip to Turkey and Greece. I highly recommend working with this company for your trip. They were easy to work with, and responded quickly to ALL of my (many) questions and inquiries during the planning phase. The trip went smoothly and we could not be happier!
The highlights of our trip were the private guides and the depth of information and insight they brought to each location. The guides provided the facts, but also a myriad of historical and cultural details which helped us to see in a broader context the significance of the artifacts and sites we visited. The guides were delightful people who were fun to be with, which added to the daily experiences. We really enjoyed the visits to local homes and businesses to experience everyday life and customs such as cooking, rug and pottery making, building techniques, farming and agriculture, family life, religious customs, and lively discussions while sharing a meal. Our visit to Turkey coincided with Ramadan, which allowed us to learn even more about the Muslim majority of the population. Istanbul and the Bosphorus private yacht ride were wonderful! The hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia was fantastic! Ephesus was amazing! Kusadasi sunsets were the best. Bodrum was beautiful and relaxing, and we loved hiking around the windmills, harbor and castle there. The Greek Islands of Kos, Santorini, and Rhodes were gorgeous and very fun to experience. Athens was immense but had so many sites to visit, including the Parnitha mountains.
If we could have changed anything, we'd have one more day on Santorini, and one more day each in Athens and Istanbul.
