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.

When we arrived all details were handeled to our complete satisfaction. We especially enjoyed our walking tour to Hagia sophia, Sultanahmet Mosque and Topkapi palace. I recommed TTC to anyone visting Turkey.

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.
