    Turkey as a terrific destination, despite US warnings! The three cities and use of 11 days included great variety and excellent recommendations by Tovi, our agent. The guides surpassed our hopes and were excellent in every way. The lodging recommendations were excellent, as a match for us and as facilities. Personal attention and follow up were much appreciated. We had a great time and will gladly recommend Tovi and Kirkit. She is creative and offered a wonderful touch in a private chef meal with her partners in Avenos in their lovely courtyard. Memorable amidst many lifetime memories.
    Worst parts:
    The loss of time in travel is an issue. It is not the agent that has the responsibility since we were self booking air but help in how best to manage and minimize travel would have helped. I think a check list of options, and an itinerary worksheet that has both the customer and agent input as for itinerary, program, might be a good tool.
    Summary:
    It would be impossible to imagine a better Istanbul guide than Ergul.

As well travelled as we are, the quality of a bright, engaged, thoughtful guide who is far more than doing her usual talk was perfect. In Cappadocia we had particular delight in our accommodations, luxury cave indeed!. Of course both the balloon experience with Erdal, an owner of Turkiye Balloons was fabulous and our guide made the valley an exciting time of discovery and understanding. On our own we did a day boat out of Gocek that we loved. All we wanted was more of everyting we did.See more

Turkey is a wonderful country, extremely rich in history and natural wonders but what strikes most is the Turkish hospitality and peoples’ kindness. Only problem: it’s big! To get from one point of interest to the other, you need domestic flights and yes, that does take time, I admit. Thank you for your suggestions. We have excellent experienced guides and Ergül is one of them. Since you “wanted more of everything”, please come back soon! And please tell everyone that there is no danger to fear in Turkey, as you yourself witnessed. We’re counting on you J. With my warmest regards, ToviSee more

    The absolute best part of our trip to Turkey was meeting so many warm and friendly people. Without exception they were smiling and offering us a cup of tea. Istanbul is a lovely city and the view from the Bosphorus tour was enlightening. Cappadocia was awe-inspiring. The ruins at Ephesus were the most impressive we’ve yet seen. The hotels met or exceeded our expectations with Sirkesi Mansion in Istanbul, Kale Konak in Uchisar, and Key hotel in Izmir being exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed cocktails with Apo, our gracious and witty host at Kale Konak. Our guides in Istanbul were perfect. The food was tasty and the local wines surprisingly good. Two of our favorite meals were with Memhet Ejder, his wife and son in his tiny restaurant in Selcuk. We were treated like family and this is the ONLY restaurant we returned to in our entire trip. Tovi, our amazing travel agent, was one of the best I’ve ever worked with. She listened to my idiosyncratic demands and satisfied them without complaint.
    Worst parts:
    Cappadocia is a beautiful area, but I was very disappointed with our tour guide. Extracting any information about how the local people made a living, either currently or historically, was like pulling teeth; he simply repeated the same rote details about the paintings in the caves. His English was adequate, but either his knowledge or his attitude was wanting. The Cappadocia Balloon ride was a disaster: we departed in a thick fog, and then made an unscheduled landing (crashed??) on a snow-covered hillside less than a half-hour into the trip where we waited another very cold thirty minutes for the ground crew to retrieve us. After an hour the rental car had a couple of warning lights but no owner’s manual to decode them. After finding one online, we notified our travel agent, who spoke with the rental company and told us to simply ignore the warnings as they knew about them and they were of no concern.
    Summary:
    It was a most excellent trip.

Did you know that the Turks arriving from Central Asia could conquer Anatolia in the 11th century thanks to their camels that could stand the Anatolian winters whereas the camels of the Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula couldn't, therefore they never succeeded (not for lack of trying)? I'm glad you liked the istanbul guides, both are excellent and sorry it didn't go well with the Cappadocia guide. As warned, Turkey in winter in not easy, especially in Cappadocia that is at a hight altitude. The weather conditions were,as far as I am concerned, not suitable for a hot air balloon ride that day, I'm quite surprised that the Civil Aviaton Authority allowed the flights that morning at all! It should have been cancelled, as was the 2nd round that was supposed to take off just after yours. I'm sure you'd have a totally different impression had the weather been better. Anyway, it was greaf fun working with you, I love your sense of humour! Please come back at a different season to get another look at Turkeys wonderful landscapes in a different light. You need to check out the south coast :o). June, for example, is a good time. Keep in touch, warm regards, ToviSee more
