  1. Saira

    We strongly recommend this travel agency for a comprehensive fantastic Turkey tour. Erkan planned the tour exactly how we wanted it and suggested changes as needed. We had a great time in Turkey thanks to the hospitality of the agency. All of the pick-ups and drop-offs went smoothly in Turkey, and all of our local guided tours were excellent. The best way to discover Turkey is through TOURSCE.

  2. Abigail

    Superbly organised the tours with brilliant guides by a great company. We booked this trip online and the communication was superb online. We always had an e-mail back quickly for the additional days and add-ons tours. They organised some parts of our holiday for us, including airport pick ups. We spent three whole days in Istanbul and then visited Gallipoli, Pergamon, and Troy then continue to Smyrna, ancient Sardis, and ancient Ephesus & Virgin Mary. We flew to Cappadocia. The tour company arranged good hotels for us and comfortable tours, all of a high standard. We had private local guides in Smyrna, Ephesus, Sardis, Pergamon, and Cappadocia, both with great knowledge and passion for their subject. We joined a group tour in Gallipoli, Troy, and Istanbul but again the guides were very good. We certainly wouldn’t have been able to navigate these areas with the four couples in a short time and we would never have learned so much on our own. The organisation was smooth all the time, everything ran exactly as our itinerary stated and to time. We crowned our Turkey holiday with a private hot air balloon tour in Cappadocia. This experience was one of the best we have ever had. The last night in Istanbul, the belly dancing show at the dinner on the Bosphorus was soo fun. The atmosphere was perfect and everybody enjoyed it a lot. If only we could take the belly dancer girl to our home with us and learn how to belly dance from her. Finally, we liked the program you have organised according to our wishes, your guides, your vehicles that are always clean and comfortable, and the hotels you have chosen for us. We will always recommend you and your work team. Thank you very much.
