Hello Michael We have now returned to Australia having finished our travels for the time being. We wanted to write to thank you and all concerned for organising our fabulous tour of various parts of Turkey. From the beginning, we were impressed with the quick and appropriate email responses to any queries we had about the itinerary. Needless to say everything went flawlessly due to the planning, organisation and our guides and drivers who looked after us so well. One aspect of the private tour (just the two of us) we liked and appreciated was the all inclusiveness of virtually everything. It helped to make the tour just that little bit easier. TTC must be congratulated on the various drivers and guides that got us around the country. The Turkish system of university trained guides adds a very professional aspect to the experience and is to be applauded. Having the close contact with our guides which wouldn't be available in a large group, was a wonderful opportunity of getting to know not only about the sites visited, but also of life in Turkey and its customs and cultures - an important aspect of travel, we believe. Pick ups for tours and airports were most punctual and drivers and/or guides were always ready waiting for us even when we were early. This is very reassuring particularly when catching a plane. Our trip involved quite a lot of driving on some days, through busy and narrow Istanbul streets or along highways. We felt very safe at all times with the drivers. The hotels selected for all sections of the trip were very good and could not be faulted. The guides and drivers should be recognised for their care, attention and professionalism. Istanbul Thanks to Ilknur & Mehmet (can't recall drivers names) Touring TJ (Gallipoli) Harkan & Yasar/Octa (Pergamon) Emre/Otak (Ephesus) Umut/Murat Pamukkale) Deniz/Adam (Cappadocia) Please feel free to post these comments with your other testimonials. We have also posted on Trip Advisor I hope, a suitable review to endorse our compliments. Regards Leigh & Carol
