Dear Michael

We would sincerely like to thank you very much for organising private Silk Road tour of Turkey in such a short notice, not to mention tailoring it according to our chosen destinations, budget with seeing so many historical places in such a short space of time. Our family would also like to congratulate you on your excellent work, well organised and well arranged without any delay or hardship.

We specificlly would like to let you know of the service each of the guided tour companies offered us for their friendliness and excellent information and professionalism. All six of us enjoyed every minute of the tour, be it for the excellent accomodation, tours and delicious foods as well as all organised transports. We cant get over of how everything was just perfect. Our memories of Mother Mery,s house in Ezmir, the old city of Ephesus, Pumakale, Konya, and Cappadocia and the Baloonning on the skies of Cappadocia shall stay with us for many years. Most of all we all felt at home, we found the turkish people very friendly, neat and helpful and this itself was a bonus.

This makes us want to come to turkey very soon again. Just wanted to let you know that our family is saving from now to travel again to Turkey soon in the future.

Also our tour guide for Konya was very kind to us and as soon as he found out that we have an interest in Hodja Nassreddin's monument he took us to Aghshair and showed us the city centre and Nassreddin's tomb and statues, we also exchanged many of the humor about Nassreddin and shared many laughs.

We hope this email serves justice in expressing our positive feelings and happy emotions about this trip. Also our friends who traveled with us are very impressed for the services and enjoyed the trip and also thinking of comming back to turkey again soon. With your permission we would like to recommend you to any one wanting to organise a tour with you.

If you would like to use this email as part of your marketing you are most welcome to do so.

Thank you again

Our holiday in Turkey was fantastic, mainly because of the way that we were looked after by Turkey Travel Centre. From the moment we contacted TTC, their service was excellent. Any email was answered immediately, and then once we arrived in Istanbul, Enver's personal touch, was wonderful. He called in to our hotel to meet us and then made sure that we had a phone call every day to ensure that all was happening as we expected.

Having an individual guide for our walking tour of the old city, was beyond our expectations (and Murat was an excellent and knowledgeable guide). The tours to Ephesus and Cappadoccia were unique and if you go to Cappadoccia, go on the balloon ride! The Sokullupasa Hotel in Istanbul was a gem - what amazing people work in that hotel.

Thankyou for a wonderful holiday!

Our recent visit to Turkey was delightful: we enjoyed the friendliness of the Turkish people, the delicious, colourful and varied cuisine, ancient historical sites such as Ephesus, and of course the amazing geological formations of Kapadokya and Pamukkale. Our Tour Guides were enthusiastic and so well-informed, and thanks to Turkey Travel Centre, our complicated itinerary ran smoothly. Especially, thank you to Ihsan, who encouraged me to go hot air ballooning and arranged it all at the last minute - the most wonderful experience, not to be missed! Kind regards, Dora

We just returned from a brilliant holiday to Turkey. It's a magical place, but our trip was definitely the better for booking with Turkey Travel Centre. Micheal always responded to our emails immediately, in a thoughtful way, trying to solve all our itinerary challenges. It's rare to find this kind of client service, especially on-line.

We visited Istanbul, Gallipoli, Kusadasi and Cappadocia. Highlights were the cooking class in Istanbul and the cave hotel in Cappadocia. Would suggest leaving at least 2 spare days for Istanbul... we had no idea how big the Grand Bazaar is!

Hi Enver, 

I just wanted to let you know again how much I appreciated your wonderful help and coordination of our vacation. It went without a problem anywhere, and I so thoroughly enjoyed Turkey. There aren't that many places I really would want to go back to visit again as it is a big wonderful world, but Turkey would definitely be on my list.

Special thanks for our accommodations in Istanbul. You should know how very accommodating and welcoming the hotel staff was and how comfortable we were there. 

Our stay in Antalya was very special as well. It seems that the smaller more intimate hotels really offer more service and are friendlier that the big and beautiful but rather impersonal and sometimes unfriendly "welcomes." You should know that. Our cave hotel in Kapadoccia was beautiful, but still very new with a few kinks to iron out, but a way to experience history with 2011 comfort.

Our trip incorporated a real variety of experiences, from ruins to exquisite architecture, from villages to modern cities, and helped give us a decent feel of Turkey. Above all, the people were delightful to meet and talk to. 

I regret that we didn't get a chance to see you before we left, but let me again express my gratitude for helping to make Nancy and my vacation terrific!

PS. Please send thanks also to Michael!

We have always been interested in visiting Turkey but concerned that our lack of knowledge of the land and people would make planning a trip difficult. We contacted Turkey Travel Centre in Melbourne by chance and are very glad we did so. Michael Altan answered every question and proposed several different itineraries as our ideas developed. Nothing was too difficult and this was shown again and again when in country Turkish colleagues provided support that turned good service into excellent service. Turkey is a great destination and when we plan our next holiday there, we will certainly be asking Turkey Travel Centre to be our travel partners!

Turkey Travel Centre planned a Turkey vacation for me and a friend in August 2011. It included stops in Istanbul, Ephesus, Pamukkale and Cappadocia. As you can imagine, the 10-day trip involved numerous flights, hotel stays and guided tours. We expected to encounter some problems along the way but, as it turned out, we didn't encounter any. The entire trip went off without a hitch.

Also, even though we cancelled our hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia at the last minute due to illness, the people at TTC were able to secure a full refund for us -- and they delivered the euros to our hotel in Istanbul a few days later.

I would highly recommend working with this travel agency.

Dear Michael, 

Thanks for everything. We thought that your tour price was most reasonable and represented good value for money, especially when one considers the standard of the accommodation.

Your agency was very efficient and stayed in contact with us the entire holiday. All stress was removed knowing that there would be someone to pick us up from and to deliver us to the airports, as we toured around Turkey. 

Your tour schedule provided many highlights for us and unexpectedly included an invitation to join you for drinks at the top of an hotel with a 360 degree view of Istanbul. A fabulous way to begin our travels of Turkey.

A highlight of our tour would have been our stay in Cappadocia and our balloon trip over the mountains and valleys ... we felt that it was a lifetime experience. 

We are very grateful for such a well planned trip.

Thank you

Hello. Thank you for booking our trip to Cappadocia. What an awesome area, packed full with ancient history. The Cappadocia Hotel was a little more opulent than was expected, but truly lovely with an excellent breakfast which was even more appreciated due to the very active tours. While both our guides and bus drivers were good, Not only the guide did he speak English very clearly, but also his knowledge of the history behind Cappadocia was considerable and delivered gradually to provide better understanding. Even more impressive, was his ability and willingness to discuss other items of interest to me: religion, politics, the Syrian refugee crisis, media reporting and economic impact of recent violence. He was no ordinary tourist guide. Thank you for the experience. My daughters and I will do our best to change attitudes in our various social and work circles. We found the Turkish people to be helpful, not too pushy with sales, considerate of tourist needs and just genuinely nice. Security was a little over the top at times, but better than the opposite.Sincerely
