  1. Fabiola

    The well-organized tour package, great value for money. I was traveling alone with my nine years old son. It was a little apprehensive at landing in an unfamiliar country where no one really speaks English. However, Toursce Travel Turkey was an absolute lifesaver. Their travel team had faultless arranged everything in Turkey, from our airport pickups and drop off, guided day tours, nice hotels, and sightseeing. Our tour operator was also available after hours to help translate when I got lost on our way back to my hotel. Also, offered advice on where to spend the extra little time we had between flights. Would highly recommend them. They have amazing services, great value for money, and a wonderfully arranged tour.

  2. Kyu Kim

    The best travel agent in Istanbul and Turkey. We booked a holiday to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday through Erkan Erdogan of ToursCE Travel Consultant and could not have been happier. I told him where and when we wanted to go and he organized the rest. All our hotels in the program were very good in the center of the towns. All the land transfers were on time and in very comfortable vehicles, clean vehicles with great drivers. Erkan Erdogan also organized some daily tours for us on our fee days in the cities. All of the were perfect. We were met at our hotels by our guides, who were all excellent, and driven in comfort to the historic sites. I could not recommend ToursCE Travel Consultant enough and especially Erkan Erdogan, who is efficient, responsive and also very kind and polite. Thank you very much.
