    Turkey is an amazing country in the world and we are very late to visit it. People are very professional, cooperative, and friendly. We are glad that we booked the 10 days tour package with Enes. It was a well-coordinated tour program. From the pickup from Airport and hotels till drop back, he personally takes care. Let it be midnight or early morning in the day, he is there always to help out. The coordination through the tour is excellent and time is valued. Hotels in Kusadasi, Antalya, Capadoccia, and even in Istanbul are very good. Tour guides were excellent in the areas and well versed in English. We were concerned about food being veggies but never had any problem throughout the tours. Somehow I feel even 10 days tours are on a fast track and one has to rush through the places. One needs to have more days in hand to visit the cities. We need to come back again for a long vacation in Turkey. How many days do we need to visit all around Turkey? Overall that was a memorable holiday and would like to visit Turkey again.

    We had personal daily tours all to ourselves throughout Turkey which enabled us to spend whatever time we wanted at sites and change the itinerary as desired. It was great to be flexible on the day in the regions. Some of the drivers were although their English wasn’t great we did fine with a combination of English and Turkish. Thank you for your local tour guide recommendation because we needed them in many historical areas like Cappadocia and Ephesus. Our local tour guides were very good and informative. Our hotels were beautiful and had a wonderfully accommodating staff. The organization of our trip by the ToursCE.com Tours and the attention paid to our particular wishes by Mr. Erkan couldn’t have been better. Thanks to your travel group staff.
