    Firstly we want to give Erkan a major shout-out for putting together an amazing tour of Turkey for us. He really went above and beyond to organize everything for us and he even helped coordinate our covid19 testing at our hotel before returning back to the US. We are honestly so grateful to him for making our first time in Turkey an amazing experience. We only wish we could have met her to thank him in person. You are the best Erkan! Everyone on the tour itinerary that worked with Erkan had nothing but good things to say about how awesome he is.
    Aylin and Oktay together for our 2-day tour of Cappadocia were a lot of fun and their energy made the tour exciting. Aylin is soo much fun and so funny! Both of them made everyone in our tour group feel cared for.
    We had a great time on the Ephesus ancient city and white Pamukkale tours. That was so much fun and Birgul was an amazing local tour guide. I would highly recommend Birgul as a guide in Ephesus and Cotton Castle. We had a great time on these tours.
    We ended our tour program with mystic Istanbul and had a full-day tour with Ugur. I read a lot of reviews on the trip advisor mentioning Ugur as their tour guide so I requested him for our private tour. Let me say that Ugur is so worth the hype. He was amazing! I was tempted to hire him to hang out with us the next day just because he was so much fun and knew everything about the history of Turkey. We learned soo much from him. He took us to an amazing place to eat fish in Istanbul and showed us how to have real Turkish coffee 🙂
    Overall I’m glad We went with ToursCE Turkey company for organizing my visit to Turkey. We would highly recommend their travel team to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful country. Thank you again Erkan!

    We had a great time in Turkey, thanks to Tuna’s arrangement and advice. we usually don’t have plans on my trip but traveling in Turkey surely needs some help especially on the traffic and destinations. Tuna suggested to us the places I should see for 9 days and arranged everything. Even I was thinking to take the night bus because I did not know that there is a direct flight between Ephesus to Cappadocia. He did a great job for us. Arranged all of our transfers, hotels, and tours in Istanbul, Kusadasi, Pamukkale, and Cappadocia. He was very prompt in answering on the phone and Whatsapp any queries and we are so glad we chose their services. The transfers were all very smooth and all our tour guides were excellent in the tours, informative and wonderful with my little child. Turkey is a beautiful country not only because of the scene, but also the enchanting history that makes those cities/country even attractive. It would be great to visit this country again! I would highly recommend them!
