    Nithin's 7 days trip to Turkey

    We had a great time in Turkey. City of Sultans had arranged everything so well. All the hotels were booked in the centre of the city which helped us explore the place even better. There wasn’t a single thing that went wrong from their side. A special call out to Aydin for answering all our queries with a lot of patience and being available 24/7. The tour guides were also very jovial and knowledgeable. The vehicles provided were all very comfortable. The itinerary was customised as per our needs. We had only 7 days of vacation time and they helped us cover 4 places (Istanbul, Cappadocia, Kusadasi and Pamukkale) within that by planning very well. Hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia. Istanbul and Pamukkale sight seeing.

    Nagarajan's 8 days trip to Turkey

    Was organised well, went as planned. Abhishek was very helpful in customising the week long holiday. Was very prompt in replying to all our queries and ensured that there was no need to contact him during our vacation. His local knowledge came very handy in addressing our queries. Istanbul Skyline from Galata tower and the cruise along the Bosphorus was awesome.

    This was our honeymoon trip and we booked the turkey experience with offbeat trippers. We went to three cities and had the most amazing tour experience. All hotels provided where really good in terms of interior, food and the central location from where all major tourist attraction where in a walking distance. The different city tours were really well organised and focussed on the experience part for the tourist. All pickups and drops were exactly on time. Special thanks to Abhishek for taking care of all small details. We visited Istanbul, capadoccia and Antalya and it was an unforgettable experience.

    Rucha's 8 days trip to Turkey

    Turkiye Cumhuriyeti! (i.e. Turkey!) It was an amazing experience. Thnz to Mr Sunil Sahu. The trip was properly planned out: flights, transfers, hotels and tours - all was well sorted and Sunil had advised and helped us right from getting the visa done. All the stays were fantastic, the airport transfers were royal and tours were enjoyable. Apart from one or two hiccups, our honeymoon was memorable! Once again, thnz to Mr Sahu, Aionz Sojourn, for his professional management. Antalya is a beautiful town! Hot air balloon was an amazing experience. Do book atleast a month in advance as prices will shoot up very high later. Istanbul too is a very clean city. You get to experience Europe at half the price and half the distance from India!

    Saloni's 8 days trip to Turkey

    We have always been travelers who like to explore city at their own pace, but this time around with a toddler we decided to take a guided tour to Turkey and it was the best decision we took. Coming to the tour, overall, it was a good experience with few let downs .There were some issues pertaining to our Cappadocia trip where , the itinerary stated it to be a two day tour but given the domestic flights that were booked , we only got one day to cover Cappadocia. Nevertheless , tour operator compensated by giving us 1 day private tour at Cappadocia , which helped us cover everything and a complementary Turkish Bath ! As we hadn't planned to experience Turkish Bath initially , it was very relaxing and helped us rewind during the travel . So no regrets there :) We were most disappointed with our experience at Grand Yavuz Hotel ,Istanbul, the staff seemed unhelpful . As we were travelling with a toddler , we had constant need of warm water for Preparation of Milk and food , but the hotel staff didn't seem to help , unresponsive and rude . Thankfully there was a very nice cafe just adjacent to Grand Yavuz - Mivan restaurant, where the staff was very courteous and helpful , they arranged hot water for the baby food every-time we went there.. We were so impressed by their service that we ended up having all our meals in Istanbul there - -It's a must visit and a gem hidden in the old city. To summarize , it was a good experience all in all barring few hiccups . Thumbs up to the tour operator for his punctuality and very good tour guides under him ,who were very helpful and understanding and tried to work with our pace ; not rushing through sightseeing ;)

    Paul's 13 days trip to Turkey

    We had a wonderful 12 nights , 13 days stay in Turkey. We visited Cappadocia , Kusadasi , Pamukkale, Antalya and Istanbul. Each place was unique and memorable , taking us back several hundreds of years back in history. Mr Mehmet Erdem did a really good job organising things for us. We did face an issue with our luggage allowance on the flight from Istanbul to Kayseri- we were allowed 20kgs per passenger but the Turkish airlines computer system was only allowing 15kgs per passenger. So we had to pay for an extra 7 kgs @ TRY 8 - however this was not on account of Mr Erdem' s oversight but due to some problem with Turkish airlines. We also took a day tour to Bursa and this wasn't a great experience as the place was too far away. Shopping in Istanbul was fun and inexpensive. Our hotels were good and all pick up were generally at the scheduled time . Thanks Mr Erdem Istanbul was an absolute delight and the must see places are theTopkapi (including the room of the holy relics)and Dolmabahce palaces . We also thoroughly enjoyed the Bosphorous day and night cruise. In all Turkey is a place where the 'ancient ' sits beautifully with the 'modern'

    It was a short but sweet trip suitably catered around our areas of interest. We were very impressed with the Hotel in Istanbul particularly it's location which gave us the opportunity to explore the city within a short span of time. Visit to Hagia Sophia, Bosphorus boat ride and close visit to the cave houses in Cappadocia
