First of thanks to Michael Altan at TTC for his assistance with both the initial booking ( we had a few questions ) and organising our extended stay. The tour was well run & organised & run like clock work , each guide or hotel advised us of the following days time table ect. Each guide from our Old City Tour walk in Istanbul to 9 days & 7 guides later in Cappadocia , all guides had extensive knowledge and were VERY passionate on there tour, to a point in the Ephesus Tour where we were to have lunch, was packed with other bus tours hot, noisy & not welcoming , our guide contacted her company to find an alternative restaurant ( which was at a greater cost), we went a small area offthe track ... It was great the food was amazing as was the ambience. Highlights umm to many to mention from the Istanbul walk , Bosphorus boat ride, Gallipoli Tour, Troy & Pergamon, Ephesus Tour, Pamukkale Tour ( must mention the hotel La Vista great water views infinity pool spacious rooms attentive staff ), & Cappadocia 2 day Tour where we stayed at the MDC hotel with the rooms dug into the side of the hill ! With a lovely restaurant . All in all the Turkish people are lovely and we were regularly thanked for Touring there country, where Tourism is a large source of there income. On the transfer to the airport to leave a truck was broken down on the departure ramp, causing us to be dropped of at the arrivals area , which meant we had a walk, our driver apologised a couple of times we reminded him it was not his fault yet again he apologised.....Such humble people. If using TTC you won’t be disappointed.
