Just returned home after our three week trip to Turkey arranged by TTC. I thought you would like to hear my thoughts.
It was wonderful holiday and adventure, made even more enjoyable by your thorough and detailed travel arrangements. The choice of accommodation was excellent, the Sokullu Pasa staff were especially friendly and always willing to assist and offer suggestions. The guides were knowledgeable and easily understood. How excellent is TJ at Gallipoli. I doubt there is anyone who knows more - and what a sense of humour - very Australian.
We were very fortunate to have private tours with Mehmet and Gul. They made us feel very welcome, were knowledgeable, easily understood and gave Carolyn and I a valuable insight into Turkish culture and customs in addition to the places we visited.
We modified a standard group tour and there were several private transfers. All occurred on-time and without a hitch.
Overall, an excellent rating for Turkey Travel Centre. From the guaranteed 24 hr e-mail turnaround, the choice of hotels and the clock-work running of arrangements, Carolyn and I were very impressed. We did not need to use the emergency contact number during our three week trip.
We will, without hesitation, recommend Turkey Travel Centre to our friends and I know one should be contacting you shortly.
Cheers all round for Turkey Travel Centre.
