I'm so happy with my trip to Turkey. Eveyrthing was well organized. Somebody welcomed me in the airport (I forgot his name and I apologize). He gave me the travel itinerary. Unfortunately, my luggage bag was left in Germany and I arrived in Istanbul without my luggage bag. Its the airline's fault, the airline delivered my luggage around four o'clock in the morning. It was very scary. Anyways, we have a diversified group from Australia, NZ, South Africa, Canada, USA, England but we all get along very well. Our tour guide (Perihan) is amazing. She's very sweet, nice and knowledgeable tour guide. I cannot ask for more. The hotels are very nice. The hot air balloon is very interesting. At first I'm hesitant because I have fear of heights but I'm glad I did. The view was spectacular from above. I went to 2 Turkish folklore which I really recommend to your other travellers. I also had an experience of a Turkish bath which is a kind of shocking, but we all feel cleaned and refreshed after the bath. The food is really good.
I stayed another day for Bosphorus tour. The Turista travel agency were very nice and I was able to meet a couple from Australia (Wendy and Jeff). They said that they booked their travel with your agency too.
I missed my co travellers, I will email them as soon as I'm settled. I'm still recuperating from jet lag but I'm on my way to recovery.
Michael, my great appreciation from all your help. You are so organized and I will surely recommend your travel agency to other people that wants to see Turkey. Haydi, haydi (come on).
You can share my message on your website.
Again, thanks a lot.
Four of us booked the Private Istanbul Tour, on Tuesday, May 28, 2013. We were met by a driver and a most excellent guide named Hayim. Our visits included three mosques, walking down the hippodrome, a location with cisterns, the spice market, and the bazaar. Plus, we had an excellent lunch in a conveniently located restaurant. I would be remiss if I did not praise the excellent driving of our driver in crowded conditions. Highly recommend this tour. I should note that on the day of our tour, Topkapi Palace was closed. However, we lacked nothing thanks to our skilled guide.

When to Go
From July to August, soaring temperatures are guaranteed. While this is ideal for sunbathers, anyone who wants to explore cultural or historical sites should confine their walks to morning or evening and avoid the peak of temperatures from 12 noon to 3pm.
Aside from these months, January to June and September to November are ideal, although evening temperatures require a light cardigan or jacket. December to March is the coldest months but destinations like Athens are still popular for all year round city breaks.
Currency and Spending
Greece used to be a cheap country until the introduction of the Euro. It is still possible to travel on a budget but travellers should look out for the small establishments serving cheap food and avoid centres where prices of drinks etc are more expensive. An average budget per day is 90 euros including accommodation, food and transport. This can increase with fees to museums and historical sites.
