    This was the most interesting vacation in Turkey and an enjoyable time for our family. We learned so much and realised there was so much Islamic history in Istanbul. It was very good to be part of the participants of the holy tour including Islamic history and boat sightseeing cruise. The visits to the Sahabe Ayyup Al Ansari tombs and the explanation how of he came to be buried there were so well explained. Visiting the sight in the program was very nice. It was the best trip we have had to Turkey. I have already recommended this trip to others.
