Hi Memehet, you were our fantastic Istanbul guide for our little group of 4 for 2 days back in May 2014. During that time you kindly arranged for a restaurant booking down in Goreme with your friend Memhet at his family restaurant Diblek so we could experience the traditional clay pot cooking later in our tour. I think he rang you at the time we were there to say our whole TTC group of 10 ended up going there for dinner not just our 4 and it was a fabulous experience and one of our trip highlights - both the food and his own wines were spectacular!.
As chance would have it I was changing the TV channel last Monday sitting in our home in Melbourne, Australia heading to a particular channel that so I could watch the stage 1 highlights of the ‘Presidential tour of Turkey’ bike race which was in Istanbul, then the live stage 2 coverage which was to be in Cappadocia and specifically going through Goreme several times - when a show on another channel grabbed my attention.
It was a food show done by an Australian Travel writer and this week was featuring Turkey. There on the screen was Diblek, and Memhet as large as life talking about his clay pots, his family and his restaurant! The specific segment lasted for maybe 10 minutes and both Coral and I were fascinated by it……it bought back lots of special memories of not only a memorable dinner but of the fantastic time we had in Turkey touring with TTC.
I had to make contact so you could let him know we and probably others saw him on the TV and he is definitely an international star now!
Memhet – hope you and the family are going well ….guess you are about to get very busy.
Michael and TTC – we had a great time with you and all your staff and talk about our experiences often. We hope you all stay safe and business continues to go well.
All the best,
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. Throw in the welcoming and interesting cultural aspects like food and cuisine and everything combines to form a holiday hotspot where people truly can enjoy themselves.
Such is the demand for tourism, every type of hotel accommodation is available from the budget hostels for backpackers to 5 star plus spa centres for honeymooning couples. If you book one of our tours, we arrange accommodation for you.
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.
Currency and Spending
Greece used to be a cheap country until the introduction of the Euro. 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.
Where to Go
There is huge amount of potential destinations, depending on what you look for in a travel experience. The diversity of regions will ensure that everyone is accommodated for.
