Mary & Bill, United States

it was an amazing trip all together! in our first experience in your homeland, including our time in Istanbul. How fortunate we were to have two fabulous archaeologists to share with us their expertise! From the very beginning, I was impressed with your professionalism then later your extremely customer focused attitude. You always answered whatever questions we had thrown at you. Thank you for not only having making our trip a great success but also made it easier for my planning process. Read more

Diane Campbell, United States

I just wanted to write and thank you for my wonderful trip to Turkey. I could not have asked for a better experience! Hasan was a wonderful guide – knowledgeable – both in regard to the historic sites and the geography required to find them, considerate, helpful, efficient, an excellent driver, and punctual. Mine excelled herself with her “travel Istanbul like a local” itinerary for me on the last day. The hotels were delightful, and everything worked really well. I’m very grateful for all your efforts.
