Testimonials 


Just to let you know we had a incredible trip, the tour guide was a book of knowledge. He was very considerate with everyone he went out of his way to please everyone. The hotels in Istanbul were really great both places and the breakfast at the first Hotel was good. The bus driver was amazing. The tour price was excellent I would suggest perhaps one more day in Istanbul at the end of the trip for free time would be nice and perhaps cut something else out or charge a little more for the extra night in Istanbul. All and all it was an excellent trip.
