Hello potential fellow travelers I just wish to share a most wonderful experience with you and that is my tour of Turkey. I had never been on an organized tour before and now I feel I have experienced a five star one first off. The guides were extremely friendly and the depth of their knowledge magnificent, I want name you individually because I loved you all, you were all equally fabulous. The hotels were great with fabulous staff, well situated, great food. One very impressive feature was when our driver and guide said they would be picking us up at a certain time they were never late, not once, not ever.

I wish you all happy Turkey travels.

Dear Michael,

I have arrived home from my excellent trip.

I wish to thank you very much for organising such a great itinerary.  I was very impressed with the Hotel and the tour company you selected for me.  The guide I had for my Istanbul City tours was fabulous, he had so much knowledge and was very pleasant and helpful.

We had a bit of a problem with some other tourists when we tried to board their bus as we had an elderly couple with us who had trouble walking distances. Our guide rang up his office and was able to get another bus to take us to our hotels. I want to compliment our guide on how he handled this unpleasant episode. All was well and I loved your city and country. I would love to go back some time.

Once again thank you so much.  Kind regards M. Nelson
