  1. Popescu

    Absolutely fabulous Turkey experience despite covid lockdowns. From dealing with the official travel consultant who was all very accomodating to my requests to our very patient and knowledgable tour guides. Everyone did their best to accommodate all the requests, the tour vans were comfy and the sights were well worth it. The tour package is very reasonably priced also. Gallipolli in Canakkale was not exactly a trip highlight, and while I understand that is mostly for people from Australia and New Zealand I feel like that part could be skipped until those countries reopen and we could visit Troy & Assos firstly. Driving five hours to see cemeteries was very depressing, we would proffer adding a beach day for free in Kusadasi or another day in the Cappadocia region because we definitely did not have enough time there. The rest of the tour was magical, food for the most part was nice. The hot air balloon and Zelve Mapping show were some activities I highly recommend to add to the tour program. Would definitely tour in Turkey with this company again. It was a fabulous Turkey tour. Thank you.

    We saw tours for various areas on their web. When we contacted on whatsapp to review them, a very pleasant person, Tuna, kindly greeted us and answered all our questions, without any pressure to purchase services. They told us that you can make programs according to your own wishes, and we liked it very much. We did the program together. We were informed of the services by Tuna, who was also extremely pleasant and informative. Excellent service for tailor-made trips in Turkey. It was a really lovely trip to Turkey and we learned so much. Many thanks, Toursce Travel team!

  3. Ana

    Efficient tour package organized by Ahmet. Ahmet was very accommodating and helpful in organizing our 4-day tour. He is also always available to answer our questions on Whatsapp and help with our problems. We enjoyed a lot of Epheso, Troy, Pamukkale, and Cappadocia tours very much. The local tour guides were very good and the arrangements very organized. Thank you!

  4. Benjamin

    I and my family (7 people) had joined the 10 days Turkey tour. That was a nice tour with its all arrangements, guiding, hotels, touring in each site, and all transportation. Thank you.

  5. Maheswaran

    Great Turkey Experience
    10-Day Turkey Classics Tour from Istanbul: Gallipoli, Troy, Ephesus, Pamukkale, Antalya, and Cappadocia. We loved the tour plan, felt safe, got to see the ruins of Troy, Pergamon, Gallipoli, Kusadasi, Ephesus, Pamukkale & Hierapolis, head out to Antalya, and then Cappadocia. We had 10-16 people in our party. All had slightly different tour itineraries – some started earlier, others got off before us. The tour buses were comfortable. Our local tour guides Arzu, Oguz, Ugur, Aysun, Deniz, and Ada were knowledgeable and caring, he spoke very good English and took care of everyone’s needs. All hotels were chosen with care, we especially loved the one in Kusadasi, Antalya, and Cappadocia. Pamukkale was a bit crowded with students, but Cappadocia was out of this world. We didn’t get to fly the balloons due to wind in Cappadocia, We only wish we had more time in Cappadocia like 2 more nights. We are very pleased with this travel company and our tour package. Thank you very much, guys.
