In a nutshell, the trip was fabulous in every respect. I could not have been more pleased with the quality of service and all the amazing experiences that were included. The trip was made even more special by the attention, knowledge and caring of our guide, Oguz. He provided a wonderful introduction to his country and was top-notch, truly. I look forward to more adventures with Eskapas
The people were kind and hospitable. They thanked us for coming to visit. The country is clean from garbage, homelessness and drugs. We never felt unsafe which for many people is a reason for not going. Our Tour manager/ guide was top notched Ayşe. She kept us entertained, on time and was a delight. She was so knowledgeable about her country and all the events within her country. We loved Turkey and I was so happy to spread the word through Facebook our wonderful trip. Everything was perfect!!!!!!!!
The trip was well organized and the tour guide Mustafa was very through with his schedule and the time. We really liked the Turkey over all and enjoyed very much. we will look forward some other country tours in the near future.
Fabulous trip. I cannot day enough good things about our guide, Senol. He was absolutely the best. His intimate knowledge of Turkey mixed with his humor made the trip delightful. Everything was managed so well that we didn’t have to worry about anything. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and the buses were very comfortable. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime!
We had a wonderful time. Had the best guide, excellent service, good tour, comfortable bus for land tours and hotels. Balloon ride was terrific. Our group was very friendly. Ahmet, our tour manager was the best! His superb knowledge of history and top rated hand-holding service at every step of the way is acknowledged. He is an asset to Eskapas.
