From beginning to end, Michael and the rest of the team at Turkey Travel Centre were a joy to see Turkey with. They responded to every email inquiry we had in less than a day and gave us detailed instructions before we even landed in Istanbul. We were placed in fantastic boutique hotels in the best locations, every pick up and drop off service was on time and professional, and all, but one, of the tours we were booked on were informative and of the highest quality. From the start of our nine day tour to the very end, they made sure everything was up to standard and all our needs were met. We have been telling all our friends and family that if they ever plan to visit beautiful Turkey, booking a tour with TTC Travel is the only way to do it.

Michael I am now back home in Australia and thought that I would jot down a few impressions with my thanks
Everything went extremely well.

The accommodation was interesting with one of the bathrooms inside a cupboard-no big deal .Generally the hotels chosen were definitely an example of the typical architecture of the town where I was staying.

Safranbolu was a treat with a beautiful room, a really fantastic restaurant/ kitchen/cook and great service -. I did not realise the significance of the plasric overshoes until i was out the following day. Everyone there went out of their way to make me comfortable and provide an enjoyable stay.

The driver who took me to Amasra was exceptional and if you can possibly retain his services on a regular basis you would be well rewarded. He was punctual, kind,an excellent and safe driver and was able to converse in some fashion even though he had limited English. Amasra is not "cute" it is incredibly picturesque, intersting and a delight. The Cute will put off Australians that might be interested in travelling to that area.

I really enjoyed Amasya and spent much time walking from one place to another with some interesting experiences on the way. The owner's ??? offsider was able to sort out a problem for me with the computer and spoke a fair bit of english. This young man was a real gem.

I had a great time - everything went extremely well and I thoroughly enjoyed myself .

Thank you so much for organising the trip and making sure that all was as planned.

I guess all this confirms for me that Turkey is a great place to visit and it will remain on my list of favourite places in the world

Cheers and thanks for your assistance . 

PS in case you ever get to north Queensland it would be a pleasure to host your visit and show you and you wife around.

We enjoyed our tour of Old Istanbul and our guide Ekin was very knowledgable and gave us a very good picture of the city during our brief visit.

We would be pleased to recommend your services to any of our friends who may be visiting Istabul in the future.

Pick-up from airport, drop off to airport:
Went very smoothly, the drivers were very helpful and knowledgeable about Istanbul and her history.

Hotel - Sokullu Pasha:
The hotel was very comfortable, and the staff gave us excellent service. While all of them were wonderful, Diana (from Armenia?) was very helpful on the day we were leaving as I had a bout of stomach flu and she got some fruits and fruit juice to our room. The location of the hotel was also excellent. Being in the old part of Istanbul we were within walking distances of Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, and the 500 hundred year old Hammam near the Grand Bazaar. In fact we told the staff that next time we come to Istanbul we will stay at the same hotel.

Food and Entertainment included in the tour:
The breakfasts at the Sokullu Pasha were wonderful, as well as the lunches with the two tour guides. The dinner with Belly Dance at the IstanbulIn was superb.

Tour Guides:
The tour guides Jengiz and Mustapha were very nice and knowledgeable. Jengiz, who used to be a soccer player, organized a half day of fishing for me (on our free day) with his Uncle who is a professional fisherman. It was a great pleasure to catch some fish and also watch Jengiz's Uncle fish in the Bosphorus Strait. Jengiz personally picked me up from the hotel at 5-30am and dropped me off and introduced me to his Uncle. I dont speak any Turkish, and he does not speak any English, but we got along splendidly.

Turkey Travel Centre, in particular Michael Altan who was our contact, provided us with a fit for purpose tour which could have included any choices we wanted, the choices were extensive. As a small group we decided on Old city tour and Gallipoli/Troy tours and stayed at the Sokullup Pasa Hotel in the old city, we had an outstanding time in Turkey, thanks Michael and the team at turkey Travel Centre for making that happen!

We organised a section of our recent Turkey trip with Turkey Travel Centre. In all our dealings, we found Michael and his team to be efficient, thorough and incredible helpful. We made some changes before arrival and once during our trip. At all times we found the staff to be friendly and responsiive, seeking feedback on the tour, accommodation and transport operators they had linked us into. All transfers and arragnements went smoothly and as expected - which takes all the stress out of travel. Thanks. We will be back.

We had a fabulous time in Turkey, over and beyond our expectations. Thanks Michael for organizing our Best of Turkey tour, including accommodation and transport. We adored Istanbul, the hotel both there and in Cappadocia were delightful. I was impressed by the state of all the attractions we saw as they are amazingly well maintained and the guides obviously knew their history well.

Of Ephesus, Pamulkale and Cappadocia, "Kapadokya" won our hearts. What a delightful place and we are looking forward to seeing it again some day.

Travelling with a 14 year old is not always a delight, but our son was thrilled with variety of places we saw and it made learning historical facts so much more interesting for him. We were delighted that like us, he too enjoyed it so much.

Looking forward to seeing all those other gorgeous places we did not make it to this time in the near future.

Thanks again for the wonderful experience, we have been singing the praises of Turkey and your travel centre since we've returned home.

Fond Regards
