    Turkey with the Toursce is an exciting adventure into history, antiquity, urban contrasts, and cultural connections. That is a learning experience with surprises, culinary delights, discoveries, and great social mingling. We learned too much, experienced astonishing destinations, and saw first hand why Turkey has too much to offer the modern traveler.

  2. Simon

    Many thanks from all tour participants! Our private tour program has done smoothly with our group of 8. We had a very pleasant vacation in your country, with good drivers, very friendly and clever tour guides. They have done the best for us all in our Turkey tour itinerary, for our requests during the tour, so that we were very satisfied with your travel team!! All the visiting towns were worth to be visited except Kas. We should have better planned 2 nights at Samsun and 3 nights at Trabzon because the town, villages, and surroundings are very interesting, particularly tea farms, old wooden houses. Anyway, hope we can travel to this part of Turkey in the future again. Thank you very much for all your help to our spoilsport group :))

  3. Tulloch

  5. Geetha

    A wonderful trip to Turkey! Thank you, toursCE travel team, for all your efforts and support. The tour package is highly recommended for a vacation in Turkey for budget travelers. It was a memorable experience in Turkey. We worked out our own tailor-made tour with Goknur from Toursce’s tours and it was wonderful. It was very fairly priced and very well organized. All the people, and the tour guide and the company were an absolute delight to deal with. We had such a good experience getting to see some wonderful ancient ruins sites and with the country sights. Thank you very much, guys.
