Testimonials

  • As a solo female traveler, I will admit I was a little nervous visiting Istanbul to attend a wedding. Ertunga quickly put my mind at ease. The people of Turkey were very kind and I felt very safe. Eutunga was a wealth of information with regards to both history and culture. I greatly enjoyed my time with him and can’t recommend him more! I look forward to returning for touring more of the country with his guidance.

  • With only a limited amount of time in the morning before a 2pm flight, we wanted to have a taste of Istanbul before leaving. Turkey Tours arranged a personalized tour to suit our time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made extra efforts to tell us about the history we were seeing. His English was very good. Thank you for making our brief visit very memorable.

  • We used Turkey Private tours to do a day tour of Istanbul. We had an excellent guide, Oz, who was so knowledgeable. With only three in our group, we were able to get around the crowds. We were in Mini van with air con. & saw all the top sights, and were given options during the day, so we could change itinerary to suit what we wanted to see, and stay as long as we wanted. It was excellent

  • We had a private guide, Ugur, who was very knowledgeable and took us to all the places he thought he would see. We learned a lot about the culture and history of Turkey and it was fascinating. It was much cheaper than the excursion through the ship and we got personal attention and being older, our guide worked at our pace instead of trying to keep up with the ship excursion. I would definitely recommend you look into this before going to Turkey as it worked out wonderfully for us.
