My husband and I travelled to Turkey for 3 weeks this spring. Erkan helped us plan a wonderful trip and did all the booking for us. At first I was somewhat reticent to have someone else do all the booking and was concerned that it would increase the cost of the trip as I have always booked our travel on our own. That was NOT so. Erkan took our original plan and made further suggestions for places to go that I would never have considered on our own. He did all the booking for us - guides (and I recommend that you use private guides in the places he suggests - you learn so much more!), car rental, hotels and internal flights. All the costs were the same as if I had booked them myself.(trust me - I checked them out on line!)
The hotels we stayed in were fantastic - totally what we were looking for and within our budget. We ended up having him book everything although it was always clear that we could book any part we desired on our own.
From the moment we arrived in Turkey it was clear that Erkan was working behind the scenes to make our vacation the best it could be. We even received a phone call from him upon arrival in Istanbul welcoming us. Frequently we would arrive at our hotel to be told that Erkan had contacted them prior to our arrival just to make sure everything was fine. On one occasion our guide for Ephesus apparently became ill and wasn't going to be available - all was taken care of and a new one arranged before we even knew about it.
Our vacation was a wonderful combination of independent time and guides. I have to say we learned much more about the country and culture by travelling this way. Already I have referred several friends to Turkey Tour Organizers - Erkan and Kadir work to make your visit to Turkey truly an experience to remember. They work with you considering your own interests and budget and take a very personal interest in every aspect of your vacation. Totally recommend booking your vacation with them
Turkey Tour Organizer might be new (two years old) but they are the best travel company! They organized our whole trip (hotels, rental car, domestic flights, tours) to three locations in Turkey, and did our tour guiding in Cappadocia. All the recommendations for Istanbul and the Aegean coast were spot-on, and they were always available and very responsive to our requests. They were proactive about getting in touch when things got a bit politically messy in Turkey during our stay. (We've never felt safer on any trip, for the record.)
The Cappadocia tour included a good mix of fascinating activities, geology, history, and culture. Once we were there, they even added in wine tasting and a visit to a carpet store at my request.
The company is basically two people. We worked with Erkan, who was fantastic! He did our guiding in Cappadocia and was totally adaptable, friendly, and knowledgable about the area and eager to answer our questions about Turkey. It was like having a new Turkish friend. He even showed us his family's home.
Turkey is a great place to visit, and with events this year tourism seems really down, which is a real shame. I would highly recommend Turkey and Turkey Tour Organizer for a great visit!
Ao chegar a Istambul, comecei a me informar sobre ida a Capadócia e Éfeso. Hotel onde estou hospedada intermediou a viagem. Marcados os dias, fui inicialmente a Capadócia, onde fui recebida por Erkan e ele foi responsável pelo meu dia. Descobri um lugar extremamente agradável, encantador com muitas opções de passeio e deixando uma enorme vontade de lá voltar e permanecer por mais dias. Atendimento profissional, gentil, atencioso, preocupado com a expectativa do visitante, com dados objetivos, informações precisas, lugares surpreendentes. Já na ida a Éfeso, fui recebida por Murat, e novamente só tenho elogios ao atendimento. Atenciosos, entusiasmados, bem preparados, gentis, atentos, e que nitidamente tem grande satisfação com seu trabalho. Recomendo!!!!!!
Four of us recently travelled to Turkey following an amazing Black Sea Cruise and Tour that ended in Istanbul. We were fortunate to have had friends travel to Turkey in May 2015 and they highly recommended Turkey Tour Organizer. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel in Istanbul to the day of our departure, we were provided with exceptional service that included assisting and organizing all flights, transfers, many meals and amazing hotels. However it was the personalized service from Erkan and Kadir (as well as their staff and family) that made the trip so incredible.
We were treated to sites and tours around both Cappadocia and Ephesus that fit well with our specific timeline. Although it was all great- most memorable will be the celebration of a friends birthday at a sunset wine tasting over the Cappadocia landscape and a cooking class and lunch at our guides home. There was so much more but suffice it to say we consider our trip to beautiful Turkey, a highlight in our travels and hope to return again. Many thanks to both Erkan and Kadir.
I ordered the course making course and I should say it is really worth taking the course. At 10:00 am, the staff named Erkan Dulger picked me up from hotel to take me to visit Cappadocia area first. He has the experience of studying in the United States so that we do not have difficulty in communication. He is also good at telling the history of Turkey. We bought some vegetables, meat and yogurt first like the local people and then went to his office. The teacher of the course is his wife. She really values a lot about the variety of the taste and that is the reason why she can cook such delicious food. Finally we ate the meal together and talked a little bit about the culture in different coutries. In all, it is a quite nice and special experience.整个旅行的可贵之处在于这是一个完全家庭式的料理制作课程，基本没有什么距离感，大家像朋友一样相处，我觉得是非常有意义的一次体验。
