8 reviews for Incredible Turkey Tour 12-Days
  1. Michaela

    Incredible Turkey Tour 12-Days was everything we expected and more. We have been planning to go for such a long time before, and at last, we did. Toursce tourism made it very easy for us. Every tour guide who worked with us was very knowledgeable about the culture and history and their command of English could not be better. We had too many laughs and fun while learning a lot of new information. From the moment the trip started and until the very end we enjoyed it. Cappadocia, Istanbul, and Ephesus took our breath away with its size and beauty. Also, I want to travel to the east of Turkey part on my next trip. I was wondering how many days do we need to visit the east part of Turkey? Local people in Turkey were friendly and hospitable. So, we didn’t feel like visitors. If we knew how much good this trip was going to be, it would have been on top of the list. We should also mention it that was a great value for money. Their price was not the cheapest, but the least expensive when compared the inclusions to other tour companies in Turkey. The hotels in the program we stayed at were all nice and comfortable. I hope our group will go to the east of Turkey next year with Toursce travel team.

    We have been traveling with the Toursce travel team for the last several years, we are very pleased with the tours and organizations provided by Toursce. We’ve been also satisfied with this trip also. We were able to explore and admire Turkey, breathtaking natural landscapes, an incredible country with so many cultural heritages, and a splendid population. We met nice new friends on the tour participants at each stop. As also, we strongly recommend that you schedule at least 2/3 more days to visit Istanbul at the end of the program.

  3. Denis

    Thank you for a most memorable and impeccable tour. We enjoyed the smaller group and appreciated professional service from everyone. Turkish people were very kind. Thank you for sharing your culture while in Turkey. We have worked very hard to visit Turkey and We are very happy that I was able to see this land from its history to today. Please take care of yourself and many thanks for your effort.

    The local tour guide Ramazan was wonderful, friendly, polite, competent, and well versed in history. Hotels in Istanbul (Sura Hotel), in Kusidasi (Charisma Deluxe Hotel), and in Pamakule (Clossae Hotel) were wonderful 5-star hotels. But the hotel in Canakkale (Grand Anzac Hotel) merited 3 stars only. I loved the cave hotel in cappadocia too. The historical sites were well preserved and out of this world. The drivers were polite and professional. All other parts of the tour were wonderful and at a very professional level. Hats off to Toursce.com travels and Turkey Travel Bazaar…

We were all delighted with your support in Turkey and appreciate all that you did for us. You did that for your brother 🙂 Best Regards.

    Dear Erkan and staff,
    Our vacation and trips were FANTASTIC. What a perfect first trip to Turkey and Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Antalya, Ephesus, Gallipoli, and Troy. All hotels: in Istanbul, Ephesus, and Canakkale were excellent. Local tour guides and transports were friendly, courteous, and most helpful. Thank you and I would highly recommend tours of TOURSCE.com

  7. Mariya

    Our private Turkey tour guide Ugur and our van driver Hamza were exceptional. As individuals or as a team they come highly recommended and I wouldn’t hesitate to tell people to make a personal request for their services. Ugur’s passion, knowledge, and genuine love of his country took us to a whole level we didn’t expect to experience. A once in a lifetime experience. One of the safest, friendliest places we have ever traveled to. It will be worth it. Thanks, Ugur and Hamza for going beyond the call of duty and responsibility. You were both the real Treasures of Turkey for us.
