Good afternoon Michael, We arrived home a week ago from our Best of Turkey Plus Gallipoli tour. Wow what a tour!! We were beyond impressed with the personal transfers and all the amazing guides for our tours and the fact that we did these tours in small groups. Special mention to Eleif in Istanbul (Old Town tour), TJ for Gallipoli and Gorkhan in Cappadocia for 2 days. All the hotels were so well located and particularly Levni Spa Hotel Istanbul was great as it was so close to everything. They were all beautiful and we had incredible views from our hotels in Canakkale and Kusadasi. The MDC cave hotel in Cappadocia was such an experience and again a beautiful hotel. We were so glad to do the balloon flight - we both don’t like heights but there was no fear climbing into the balloon and up and up we went. Such a wonderful experience we will never forget. Just to have 60+ balloons flying with you was an incredible experience and a joy to see. Michael we can’t tell you enough how much we loved this trip and the fact that it was so well organised. Everything went so smoothly. We had nothing to worry about. Which brings us to express our heartfelt thanks to Makbule for all her communication about our pick ups, departure times and upcoming travels. Whilst we know that this is her job it was the way she communicated that made us feel really well looked after and special. We never felt like we were on our own totally in Turkey. We knew she would be there for us. I sent her a quick message one night about 10pm just to let her know we were enjoying ourselves and everything was going perfectly thinking she would read it the next day. But no she replied that night to say she was happy to hear we were really enjoying our holiday etc. We found the Turkish people very warm and friendly and the country has so much much history and beauty. It has so much to offer. Every day brought something different and it was always exciting. Thank you again Michael and your team in Melbourne and Istanbul. We will certainly refer anyone thinking of travelling to Turkey to make contact with you at Turkey Travel Centre. Kindest regards Symmans
