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!!!!!!!!
