Being Australians, we wanted to take the opportunity to spend some time at Gallipoli, whilst on our way to Europe. After some research on the internet, I chose Turkey Travel Centre, because it seemed to be the best one to suit our needs. I am so glad we had our time in Turkey organised by TTC. TTC was quite flexible in making suggestions and changes to our itinerary as we developed what we felt we would like to do in the week we had available. Our trip was everything we wanted.
All our tour guides were excellent, knowledgeable and quite understanding our needs. In particular I need to mention Mehmet (Istanbul) and Erdem (Gallipoli). Spending the couple of days with each of these guides made the whole trip worthwhile; we came away knowing so much more about Turkey and it people, history and culture. Our accommodation in Istanbul, Sokullu Pasa Hotel, was a pleasure. The staff could not have been more supportive and understanding. The rooms were most comfortable. Our other accommodation on our trip were as good as the Sokullu Pasa.
We enjoyed ourselves so much, we will return to see more of this beautiful country and we will again use Turkey Travel Centre.
Well, we are now home from our travels and want to thank you and all who were involved with putting our wonderful holiday together. From the moment we landed in Turkey, everything ran so smoothly. Each one of the guides assigned to us was firstly, very knowledgable, but they were also good humoured, entertaining and interesting people. We would particularly like to acknowledge Gonul Cebeci in Cappadocia. This young woman was most enjoyable, sharing her love of her country to a very mixed group.
I would also like to say we enjoyed the mixture of travelling companions grouped with us. Each leg of our holiday we met a new group, stayed with them just long enough to make some friendships that will continue and then moved on.
Your selected accommodation was for us was just perfect. Every hotel offered something unique and satisfied our needs perfectly. Location and comfort were number one. We wish we had spent more time in some, but we were always out walking, looking at each town. Special thanks to the staff in Fethiye. They upgraded us to one of the suites, (I gave a little squeal when I saw its opulence). I'm not sure if this was your doing, but we loved it. Probably our favourite parts of the holiday were the Gulet trip and our brief stay in Kas. When we come back, and we will in the couple years, we would like return toÂ Kas and stay a while longer.
In the next couple days of days I plan to write a number of recommendations on Trip Advisor. All of them will be positive. Thank you again for the flexibility you showed in providing us with holiday that we wanted.
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.

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.
