L. Weatherford

We did have a fabulous time and felt that your arrangements were exactly as promised! It really covered every little detail and was such a relief to have that all taken care of by you.

The driver was professional, the car was very comfortable (Mercedes SUV), with our water/juice being re-stocked constantly.

The tour guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable at all the museums and sites we visited!

The meals were good, the hotels were excellent, and the ruins in Ephesus were absolutely stunning!

Thanks again for a wonderful trip!
