Hi Michael,

We have now returned home from our overseas trip including travel through Turkey. Turkey was a wonderful experience thanks, to a large extent, to the travel and accommodation arrangements made for us by yourself. All the hotels were very good with friendly and helpful staff.
 I would have no hesitation in recommending your agency to others intending to travel to Turkey. Once again,thanks.

Kind regards,

R. Jamieson

Hello Ihsan,

I would like to thank you, your agency and network of tour guides for the excellent experience I had while in Turkey. Everything was rather seemless, which was very important to me as a woman travelling solo. I very much appreciated meeting you, and the exchanges we had both by phone and email. You have been very professional and obviously enjoy your work.

I plan on returning on Turkey, and will indeed call upon your travel agency to make the arrangements when the time comes.

I plan on making a review on Trip Advisor. Rest assured that I will recommend you and your agency's services to anyone travelling to Turkey.

Travel Information and Guide to Greece

Greece has always been and will be one of the most popular destinations for tourism. It is not hard to see why. The country and surrounding islands, have a colourful historical timeline filled with stories of the ancient gods, and philosophers like Aristotle. It also has superb coastlines filled with beautiful beaches and swimming spots.

When to Go

From July to August, soaring temperatures are guaranteed. While this is ideal for sunbathers, anyone who wants to explore cultural or historical sites should confine their walks to morning or evening and avoid the peak of temperatures from 12 noon to 3pm.

Aside from these months, January to June and September to November are ideal, although evening temperatures require a light cardigan or jacket. December to March is the coldest months but destinations like Athens are still popular for all year round city breaks.

It is still possible to travel on a budget but travellers should look out for the small establishments serving cheap food and avoid centres where prices of drinks etc are more expensive. An average budget per day is 90 euros including accommodation, food and transport. This can increase with fees to museums and historical sites. Our Greece tours range from budget to luxury and you can see the full range here.
