We were looking for a tour of Gallipoli and Ephesus and liked the look of the istanbul tours. We had trouble on their website and e-mailed them for a query. We had a prompt return e-mail and were met in the old town and taken to their offices. On sitting down with Senol we immediately felt that he was a professional operator and would have our best interests at heart.
He discussed our trip and we eventually added two days in Cappadocia to the trip as he said it would round off our trip to Turkey. We did a combination of air flights a long-distance bus, ferry and mainly vans on the tours. Everything went extremely smoothly and we were met on time and transferred efficiently everywhere we went. This was a testament to the professionalism of Turkish tourism industry in general. We did two days in Cappadocia and then transferred and did Pamukale, Ephesus and Gallipoli before returning to Istanbul. You would probably choose to do this in a few extra days as there was some early morning and late night travel but it certainly worked for us. Our only upset was a rain storm that prevented us taking the balloon flight through Cappadocia but Senol refunded our money immediately.
Senol rang every second day to check that everything was going well and that all the tours and guides were up to standard. trip around Turkey.
