Michael and Ihsan

 

My wife and I have just returned home from our outstanding tour of Turkey.

 

Everything went absolutely brilliantly. The fact that every day involved a different tour operator  but that it all came together is nothing short of incredible. The hotels were high quality and in excellent locations.

 

The fact that recent events have caused a dramatic drop in tourist numbers is particularly sad for your business and for Turkey. However, for us it was a benefit, as we were able to see all the key sights without hordes of people.

Of course we also had the luxury of personalized attention on most days.

 

Just one suggestion for the future. While in Cappadocia we went to a Turkey dinner and cultural show that was outstanding. This is something you might wish to include as an optional extra for future tourists.

 

Once again, my sincere thanks.

 

We'll certainly recommend Turkey Travel to all our friends.

This is the second year I have used Turkey Travel Centre to plan my trip to Greece and Turkey. And as the previous year the whole process of travelling about with always some one waiting my arrival with my name and then being met to move onto the next destination has been orchestrated by Michael and his team....every last detail from ferry tickets, excursions, hotel room type and inclusion to pick ups and drop offs all done.
The accommodation has been perfect and the additional excursions have been fantastic! Nothing is any difficulty for TTC and if I needed them it was merely a phone call, not that it arose.
I was delighted to finish my walking tour today and be met by part of the team who seem to have become my good friends here in Turkey to enjoy lunch and lively conversation.
Thank you to Michael, Ihsan and Mimet for a wonderful day and ensuring once again my holiday was everything I hoped for and more!

I was hoping to give you some feedback from our recent trip.

Thanks for arranging a good trip for the two of us.  All of the transfers and pick ups were excellent and punctual  except one but they informed us that they were running late.  All of the hotels used were excellent as well.

Hi Michael,


Thank you for organizing  our Turkey tour, we have had an amazing time, have seen beautiful sights and met some lovely people.


All the accommodation was great with all staff very friendly and accommodating and we would happily stay at any of these hotels again. They were all in great locations as we were able to walk from the hotel to some great restaurants and shopping areas. The staff at the Sokullu Pasa Hotel in Istanbul were very helpful after the terrorist bombing at the airport ,checking with pickups and the airport to make sure all was ok. A sad ending to our trip but this would not put us off going back to such a beautiful, friendly country. Our Show in Istanbul was cancelled due to lack of people but we were compensated with a lovely meal and it was great to meet up with your colleague.

All pickups were punctual and all the guides very friendly, they spoke English very clearly and had an amazing amount of knowledge.


Its very hard to have a favourite place as we loved all the places we went to but if we had to name any it would be Kas with its beautiful setting and Cappadocia. The balloon ride was amazing and what a fantastic place to do it.

Thank you for organizing our trip  and the fantastic experiences we have had.

 

Regards

Judith and Richard

We had an incredible adventure in Turkey. Everything was well organised - the hotels were very comfortable and boutique. We were worried about travelling Turkey as vegans, however we were looked after at every meal with plenty of options. We felt we were in safe hands the entire time. We had the best time on the Best of Turkey tour and would recommend it to anyone of any age! Thank you Turkey Travel Centre, we would love to return.

Hi Michael

Just to let you know we were thrilled with our trip to Turkey. A beautiful interesting historic country with great archeology sites, the guides were all excellent and we were really impressed with superior quality of some of the hotels, particularly the Dosso Dossi for location and breakfast and the Doha Thermal for the spa, decor and fabulous evening meal. The Parion and the Suhan360 were excellent too.

We really enjoyed the gulet trip. Every email was answered promptly and everything went smoothly.

We would be happy to recommend Turkey Travel Centre any time.

Thank you again

Lorri and Dennis

I want to write to tell you how much we enjoyed our two weeks travelling in Turkey. It was an eye opener from beginning to end. We must thank our two guides for their kindness towards and consideration of Judy as they walked and transported us around Istanbul and all of the other remarkable places they took us to. Uhr? even went so far as to buy from a market stall, a collapsible seat for Judy so that she might rest more easily as he explained what we were seeing. He refused to let me pay for it at the end of his two days with us and at the same time insisted we take it with us for our travels with Mehmed. Our general experiences were that Turkish people are very friendly, polite and keen to help. At no time while we were by ourselves in Istanbul and elsewhere did we feel anything but goodwill towards us. Also I want to say how much we enjoyed the never ending supply of food when we stopped for lunch and dinner.

Hi Memehet, you were our fantastic Istanbul guide for our little group of 4 for 2 days back in May 2014. During that time you kindly arranged for a restaurant booking down in Goreme with your friend Memhet at his family restaurant Diblek so we could experience the traditional clay pot cooking later in our tour. I think he rang you at the time we were there to say our whole TTC group of 10 ended up going there for dinner not just our 4 and it was a fabulous experience and one of our trip highlights - both the food and his own wines were spectacular!.

As chance would have it I was changing the TV channel last Monday sitting in our home in Melbourne, Australia heading to a particular channel that so I could watch the stage 1 highlights of the ‘Presidential tour of Turkey’ bike race which was in Istanbul, then the live stage 2 coverage which was to be in Cappadocia and specifically going through Goreme several times   - when a show on another channel grabbed my attention.

It was a food show done by an Australian Travel writer and this week was featuring Turkey. There on the screen was Diblek, and Memhet as large as life talking about his clay pots, his family and his restaurant! The specific segment lasted for maybe 10 minutes and both Coral and I were fascinated by it……it bought back lots of special memories of not only a memorable dinner but of the fantastic time we had in Turkey touring with TTC.

I had to make contact so you could let him know we and probably others saw him on the TV and he is definitely an international star now!

Memhet – hope you and the family are going well ….guess you are about to get very busy.

Michael and TTC – we had a great time with you and all your staff and talk about our experiences often. We hope you all stay safe and business continues to go well.

All the best,
