    Erkan is one of the most well connected, yet patient men I met in Turkey. He was full of life and very organised. Planned our 5 days very well and ensured me and my sister enjoyed our stay in Turkey. I was very worried about coming to Turkey in the beginning, but Erkan made sure my sister and I were safe at all times and allowed us to enjoy ourselves. My favorite moment in Turkey was the private yacht ride across the 2 continents. The guide gave us some history lessons and it was great to add to my knowledge. Because of Erkan’s hospitality, we will definitely come back to Turkey and we can’t wait to meet them again and travel to more amazing cities in the country.

    I visited Istanbul with my youngest adult son. This was my fourth visit and his first. For me, this being my 4th visit to the mystic city, I was excited to have learned several new things from our local guide, Ugur, and having him help me better understand the geography of magnificent Istanbul. He is very knowledgeable about Istanbul and Turkey and relates information well. He took us to places I have not seen before on previous trips which were excellent. My son and I both prefer to walk as we feel we get a better sense of a place. We did that. We also got to experience different aspects of great Istanbul city, old city, new city, and Asian continent. And different modes of transport in the city. All in all our program was excellent. As for our airport transportation, it was on time and efficient. Thank you to Coskun who meet us at our hotel when we arrived and for all efforts made to ensure us having an enjoyable stay.
