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. We have also posted on Trip Advisor I hope, a suitable review to endorse our compliments. Regards Leigh & Carol

Hi Michael Just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for all your help organising our trip. Your quick reply to all my emails made it easy for me to organise our end of the trip. We had a wonderful time and have treasured memories of Turkey. We found the people wonderful and the food yummy and the historic places made for a wow factor everyday of our trip. Mehmet was a wonderful guide, his knowledge and friendly caring personality was very special. It was very hard to say good bye to him in Bodrum. Our coach driver Ramusen (sorry about the spelling) was very dear to us also, he kept us safe and got us everywhere on time. It did not seem to matter that there was a language barrier between us. We were so grateful for Mehmet and Ramusen joining us in our Dawn Service at ANZAC Cove – something we will never forget. I also had to ring Ihsan while in Turkey and he was just as helpful as everyone else has been. Anyway just wanted to say thank you to you and all at Turkey Travel Centre. Kind Regards Fran

Good Morning Michael,
Firstly let me thank you so much for planning our amazing trip !!
Every thing went so well, we had a truly amazing time. From the minute we arrived your contacts looked after us so very well, on every occasion there was a welcoming face waiting for us at the airports, the cars were always clean and of the best quality.
The staff assisted us with maps, ideas of were to dine, what to see, and info related to our booked tours.

All the tours- were so worth while doing, they were very well organised the guides were all SO NICE,  very well educated and knowledgeable of not only what we were visiting , but of the country, people. history. I could not have asked for a nicer
group of people to have spent our days with.

The lunches that our guides took us to were of such a good quality, and at really  nice places, I was very pleasantly surprised.

All of our hotels were superb, The Petite Palace In Santorini was perfect as a boutique hotel for a couple. Mykonos was also 
well suited to us. In Turkey we loved Canakkale and Kusadasi, such great spots to visit, and again hotels selected were wonderful, cant give you enough praise for these hotels.

This is my story of travelling the world as a solo older woman...

As we know often our marriage is restructured and we are left out of the restructuring...we are left at an older age of being solo again. Our children have began building their lives and partnerships so it is only the odd 'come away with us Mum' trip you have to look forward to. Not ideal for a women regaining her individuality and independence, therefore travelling alone is what you have to consider and embrace with excitement of a new adventure.

Now I was made redundant many years ago and have travelled extensively alone but I'm over organising the drop offs, pick ups, accommodation and researching the local knowledge of where best to go and stay. Hence this is the first package tour I have done and I'm hooked and will use Turkey Travel Centre again in 2016 for Greece and parts of Turkey I couldn't fit in this year.

Like all of us I went to see Skyfall the James Bond movie and decided then and there I was going to Turkey, that how it began...as simply as that! 

Michael at TTC in Melbourne understood that I didn't want to be up at 6am every morning on the bus and have more culture input, it's about the experience of the country and the indulgence of taking my time travelling about. Staying at lovely hotels for several nights allowing me to just sit in the cafes 'people watching' and of course trying of the local spas without the constant packing up every night. I have met with so many different people from all nationalities as I have travelled about, on the days of transfers the mini bus mysteriously arrives and I'm on another adventure with a new group. And when I say group it has been a maximum of 11 of us and more often only 3 so not merely am I taking away the culture of Turkey I'm taking friendship from other  travellers. Our guides have been fantastic with their local input and their knowledge extensive but it's the fun I have had with them that has touched me and that can only come from small group travelling.

So ladies get out into the world and regain your independence should we wish to see the ever surprising country of Turkey and/or visit Greece contact TTC and you will be well looked after, cared for and have constant contact with the office in Istanbul. Their co ordination is seamless and their choice of drivers, guides, accommodation and destinations is second to none. So do not hesitate, do not be fearful of travelling alone see this as an opportunity to travel where you want and do what you want....and that is exciting!

Our Turkish Tour, organised by Turkey Travel Centre was one of the best we have ever experienced. Everything went like clockwork - the guides we had each day were on time, knowledgable, experienced and more than happy to change plans at the last minute to give us the best of everything. Our drivers also were excellent and we always felt safe in their hands despite the sometimes chaotic traffic conditions! Thankyou Turkey Travel Centre!

Very impressed with pick-up from the airport, meeting up with Jason who took us around the old Istanbul city which was fascinating, learning the history and people so friendly. We have no hesitation in recommending your company and Jason as a guide. Well done!

Dear Michael

We are now back home in Western Australia after a lovely holiday in Turkey.

We wanted to thank you very much for organising our private tour so well. We were impressed with the great organisation of everything and the fantastic quality of all the local guides that we were fortunate to interact with. They were all different but excellent in their own way. Other than a few glitches with times and wrong hotel information for the guides in Kusadesi, everyone was prompt and as listed on our itinerary.

The choices of hotels were excellent and we especially  loved The Museum Hotel in Cappadocia. Such a unique experience and a great way to finish our travels.

We would highly recommend your organisation to anyone who asked for advice. We were very happy with everything.

We will positively review your company on tripadvisor. 

Thank you once again Michael, we wish you continued success.

Kindest regards

Dear Michael

Just a short note to tell you how much we enjoyed our recent Gallipoli Plus Tour. From our first pickup in Istanbul to our return to Istanbul airport, all transfers were seamless. Local guides at each stop were first class. Their professionalism reflects on both their training, & enthusiasm for history & culture. All hotels met our expectations, & were clean & well located to entertainment/commercial centres. Dosso Dossi in Istanbul & Doga Thermal in Pamukkale were standouts.

I’m happy to recommend Turkey Travel Centre to anyone considering a short, but comprehensive, tour of western Turkey. All round a great experience, Thanks again.

Yours sincerely

Eric & Anne

TTC contacts Michael Altan and Ihsan Dincel were quick to reply to our inquiries and to give us the best possible deal. The tour they organised for us was terrific, a huge success, with flights and site visits and hotel bookings all arranged perfectly. Our guide on Saturday 11 April was informative and fun and had a great sense of the time our small group needed at each stop. All the tour and transfer vehicles were top notch and the hotel TTC arranged for us was a joy. TTC organised everything and still left us enough time to explore a bit on our own. Very happy indeed!
