I cannot overstate how pleased and enthused Mary and I were with our trip—organized by this travel company--toIstanbul, Cappadocia, and Ephesus. We learned about this company by using the online travel service Zicasso. This was our first time using either group and we could not be happier with our choice.
The most important trait of this travel company is the quality of its employees and network of guides. Our agent impressed me from the beginning by her dedication to her customers. While we were deciding which tour group identified by Zicasso to use, our agent called us twice to assure that the company understood our desires and thatwe understood their proposal accurately.
From the time we arrived in Istanbul until we checked into our return flight, the travel team took carethat we moved effortlessly from place to place and that our lack of languageknowledge caused no problems. They did so without impinging on our autonomy and free time. Our guide—who accompanied us to and from the airport in Istanbul for all our flights—spoke perfect English andgave a wonderful overview of what we should expect.
It is a daunting task to choose a tour service in country never before visited, with a unique and less familiarculture and with a wholly unfamiliar language. We highly recommend this company to anyone traveling to Turkey. They care for their clients’ interests and desires perfectly. They will be my certain choice whenever I return to Turkey.
Our tour guides in each locale were all expert on the sites we visited and easily bridged our Western Christian knowledge and Turkish Muslim history and culture. My praise is inadequate to express my gratitude to each of the guides.
The places chosen for us to visit were all excellent. We especially enjoyed our boat tour on the Bosporus, the ballooning in Cappadocia, and the ancient ruins of Ephesus and neighboring sites.
Finally, our accommodations were excellent, with special gratitude for booking us at the hotel inCappadocia.
The only change I would make would be to add two additional days allocated to travel between sites. In order to maximize use of our time, we needed to rise very early on each of the two days we traveled within Turkey (first to Cappadocia and then to Ephesus). I would spend these days more at leisure with later flights and less booked on our agenda for the travel days. I would change nothing else.
