    Most amazing experience I have had to visit the tombs of the blessed Sahabas. Tour was by tour guide and dervish baba both Turkish and English translation describing the very indepth stories on how the Sahabas suffered when they migrated to Istanbul to spread Islam. One of the best experiences I have had highly recommend it.

  2. Habiba

    Hello Tuna, finally we arrived home after the safe flight and covid control test. All ıur travel was fine. The Ertugrul Ghazi tour was the best part of our Turkey tour because of the Ertugrul series. We really enjoyed it and we had very nice photos in Ertugrul Tombs and Topkapi Ottoman Museum. As you know we are watching Ertugrul Ghazi every day. We are going to send you our photos by email. Take care and stay safe. See you next year.

  3. Rayyan

    It was my family’s religious ziayarat in Turkey and it was the most interesting and enjoyable time for my family and me. We learned too much and realised there is too much Islamic history in Istanbul and Turkey. The visits to the various Sahabas’ tombs and the explanation of how each one of them came to be buried there were so well explained. That was the best tour we have had. I have already recommended your company to others and I will continue to do so.

  4. Aminah

    I have tremendous experience with them and its staff. Their tour guide is very itinerary and organized. To have a good guide such as Ugur was a privilege. Importantly we learned a lot and really enjoyed learning about the various Sahabas here. My three sisters, parents, and I were mesmerized but the stories and enjoyed visiting the masjids and graves of all these great Sahabas, that played their part in making Islam successful. One of the great stories and masjid to visit was Yeralti Camii (underground mosque). The feeling and stories behind the graves were amazing Mashallah! We also used this tour guide to visit Ertugral Ghazi’s tomb in a day tour… We visited the Ertugrul Ghazi tomb in Sogut. Alhumdullilah, it was arranged really well from 6.00 we arrive back 21.30. Ugur was our tour guide who was patient and kind. It was very important that everyone stuck to the timings especially if we were to visit all graves and pay respects on the tour. The tour guides did very well mashallah. Best wishes to you and your team. We loved the fantastic Sahaba tour and Ertugral tour in Turkey. See you again in the future.
