Best of Turkey Tour
Our trip took us from Istanbul, down the west coast and then inland to Cappadocia. Turkey in the springtime was lush and green. One highlight of the trip was the unusual landscape of Cappadocia. Several of us took an early morning balloon ride to view the unique formations. It was a very private tour just three of us with our guide and driver. We ate our meals together and had many delightful conversations. We came away with sights that surprised us, and adventures that provided us with enough memories for years to come. This was one of the very best international travel vacations that we have ever taken. We would recommend this tour company to anyone who wants to spend time getting to know this beautiful country.
Best of Turkey Tour
During the month of April, three of us took a nine-day tour of Turkey with Serendipity Tours. Because we have limited experience with guided tours we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised during every phase of the trip. From the moment that our guide met us at the airport it was clear that we were in good hands. He took care of every detail during our nine days, from selecting the best places to eat, to efficiently checking us into each of the hotels and guiding our visits to cultural and archaeological sites. Our guide has a passion for his country and he is extremely knowledgeable of its rich history. He was so patient as he explained in detail about the current life in Turkey, as well as the history of each archeological site, museum, and mosque that we visited. There was something new and interesting everyday.
Taste Of Turkey - 7 Days
One of the best tours that my wife and I took. We started in Istanbul with a wonderful city tour. Moving along to Cappadocia the rock formations and hot air ballon ride were amazing. Pamukalle hot springs were amazing with the Roman cemetery above it. Moving on to Kusadasi the town across the Agean sea, wonderful, and this was topped by the Ephesus Roman City which is just amazing to tour. Most of all our guide Mr. Fazli was amazing. I think it was he who made the extra 5 experience for the tour. With 15 years of experience behind him, he knew what was important and adjusted the tour according to our pace. He covered what was most important and gave us time to decide if we needed to relax or do more. He also took us to a few lunch places that were really tasty and true Turkish cusine. He is an amazing person and very warm and considerate. His knowledge is very vast and he has great patience. Totally recommend this tour if you are seeing the most important places in Turkey in this one week.
Taste of Turkey - 7 Days
Although it was intended as a small-group tour, it ended up as a private tour of just me and my mom. So everything went very well and efficiently. Our guide, Fazli, is very kind, knowledgeable and experienced in leading such trips. He welcomed us with Turkish hospitality. All the hotels were 4-5 stars, and the trip was well-organized thanks to Fazli’s knowledge. He knows how to avoid the big tours and run the tour efficiently, so despite the hottest time of the year the trip didn’t feel tiring or tedious. He also brought us to cheap local places for lunch, which was much better than touristy places in terms of both taste and price. We would recommend this to anyone who want to see the highlights of Turkey in a week.
