I and my fiance had a holiday in Turkey in July. We used the Toursce travel services as we had a recommendation from a friend that said great things about this company. We had a private guide in Istanbul called Ugur who was fantastic, very informative, and friendly with great historical knowledge and witty humor. We also absolutely appreciated the suggestions for our spare time and the restaurant suggestions they offered. They also organised a trip to Gallipoli, Ancient Troia, and Ancient Ephesus for us which was a great organization. We will come again for your other tours to Cappadocia, Nemrut, and Gobeklitepe. Thank you for all your efforts in Turkey. See you soon.
I am really satisfied with the services of this agency, and the treatment of customer relations, with the weekly follow-up. I recommend you to organize your trip through Toursce tour services, and I thank Mr. Tuna for his excellent effort.
