  1. Roxana

    Getting the Turkey trip organized through Toursce was the best decision I took for my honeymoon. I was talking to Leyla and she was very very accommodating and patient during all our iterations of the planning. Most importantly, Leyla helped us several times during our tour when things were not going to plan. She upgraded shuttle services to private transfers so we could comfortably catch our flight, and got our hotel changed at a short notice. Amazing service. Thanks to her and their team we had a comfortable and safe trip!

  2. Karla

    Overall the tour package was fantastic and all of us had a great time. The time went too much quickly but that was very enjoyable. The amazing guides, very approachable, and knowledgeable of the places we visited were very impressive. what a great trip this was. Hot air balloon over Cappadocia and Whirling Dervish Ceremony was our highlight. We’ll definitely recommend this excursion to our family and friends. Thanks very much.

    Review of: Charms of Turkey Package Tour 10-Day: Istanbul, Ephesus, Pamukkale, Cappadocia

    We loved the tour that organized by toursce.com We felt safe and comfortable while we were on tour. They are trustable and always reachable. We got to see the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Place in Istanbul also we enjoyed a lot during the Bosphorus cruise. These places are must seeing places in Istanbul. Our guide Mistik was knowledgeable and spoke very good English. He took care of us and others as well.

    We had very early flight to Cappadocia to catch our tour group in there. Our group was small group 16 people, and our tour guide Ozay was perfect. He explained everything one by one, and we asked many questions to him. He is very knowledgeable and polite. Thanks to him. Also, the hotel in Cappadocia was very nice. We have stayed in cave room at Amber Cave Hotel. Also, special thanks to Ismail as well.

    We did day trip from Kusadasi to Pamukkale. Our guide Songul was very funny even in the morning she was singing . Also, we enjoy a great history of Ephesus and the hotel in Kusadasi was on seaside, and we had sea view room at Efe Boutique Hotel.

    Finaly, we came back to Istanbul. Everything was perfect arranged and all were on time and hotels, guides, transportation were well organized.
    Thank you again for everybody.
