    Prasad's 9 days trip to Turkey

    When we decided to visit Turkiye during end of March, it was well known that it is off-season and the best time to visit was during spring ie. April-May. But, other constraints have compelled us to plan the trip from 24-March 2024 to 03-April 2024. No regrets as Turkiye is always beautiful and well
    explorable. The initial discussions were over with Mr Abhishek Gupta from Offbeat Trippers and finally we have decided to go with their offer for the 11 day tour covering Istanbul, Kappadocia, Kusadasi, Pamukkale, Antalya and back to Istanbul. We kept one day on reserve in Antalya for exploring the beautiful beaches and one day for Istanbul in the end to complete shopping. The tour plan covered all major attractions with internal flights and all airport transfers and hotel accommodations. Daily tours were planned meticulously with perfect time schedules. Daily tours were well executed, mostly in small and comfortable groups, and some of the tour guides were par above excellence. All the parameters were fulfilled in a perfect way without giving a chance for any complaints. Accommodation we chose was all 3-star as we will be in the hotel just for the sleep in the late night and moving out in the early mornings. Those who are very particular about the room size and location may opt 4-star or 5 star accommodations. Turkiye is a place which should be in the bucket list of every travel enthusiast as it gives an awesome and different experience. People are mostly very good and supportive and any other response may be just because of the frustrations as the country is passing through severe inflation. It was all perfectly planned and executed, we could cover the entire stretch as planned without much difficulties. Appreciate Mr Abhishek Gupta for his interactions and availability almost round the clock for any clarifications. If I start writing about the detail itinerary and everyday experiences, pages will not be sufficient here. I just want to say that Turkiye is fantastic and fabulous welcoming you and never skip if you get a chance to visit Turkiye. Big applauses to Offbeat Trippers who made it all possible and I am signing of with utmost satisfaction.

    Rachit's 8 days trip to Turkey

    Overall 5 Stars, our Turkey trip with Lykk Travel was an incredible journey filled with unforgettable memories, and we have Ms.Priya Pathak to thank for her exceptional trip planning. Every aspect of our journey was very smoothly orchestrated, including airport transfers and city tours in Antalya,
    Cappadocia. From traditional kebabs to mouthwatering baklava, each meal was a culinary delight that added an extra layer of enjoyment to our trip. Additionally, stay near the metro in Istanbul during our trip proved to be incredibly convenient and helpful. Loved the baklavas at Hafiz Mustafa. We highly recommend Lykk Travel and Priya Pathak to anyone looking for a truly superb and memorable travel experience.

    The trip was very well organized. The WhatsApp group is an excellent idea! The hosts in Turkey were very responsive especially Erman, Duha and Esra. The pickups were dot on time and the vehicles were top class. The accommodations were in central areas. The tour guides were very professional and f

    Raza's 8 days trip to Turkey

    Fly Goldfinch made our 7 nights and 8 days in Turkey very enjoyable. They were always accessible to answer any questions I had, and they did it as quickly as they could. I was able to properly plan my trip thanks to all the information they gave me. I truly want to bring up Sakshi, Amir, and Pooja.
    Sakshi made easy work of organizing our vacation, Amir handled all of my ad hoc needs and support while we were in Turkey, and Pooja assisted us with obtaining our visas. The best thing about Fly Goldfinch is that all of their Turkish associates were excellent, they were all really timely and supportive. I would especially like to thank Mr. Mehmet and Mr. Ercan for going above and beyond to successfully deliver my engagement ring to Istanbul, which I had left behind in a hotel in Antalya. Many thanks to the fly gold finch team and everyone connected to them.

    Rajesh's 9 days trip to Turkey

    Amazing trip to Turkey - Istanbul, Cappadocia, Kusadasi and Pamukkale with Travel Lykke. Rahul helped me with the initial hotel and itinerary planning. The Support team consisting of both Turkish travel partners and coordinators from Lykke were connected throughout on WhatsApp. It was a pleasant exp
    erience interacting with the Support team handling unexpected situations like change of hotels at the last minute (for no fault of theirs), or managing to get a direct flight instead of a connecting flight (that saved us loads of time and energy). The flight and hotel transfers were impeccably managed. The tour guides were knowledgeable and shared lots of history and details about the tours. Overall, an unforgettable trip with incredible memories
