Ertunga from Felicity Travel was very helpful and flexible. He worked with me to customize the tour to fit my schedule. The places on the visited were amazing. Although the scheduled went like clockwork, I had plenty of time at each location to see the sites and understand the importance/history of each place. The guides such as Özgür and Ali were very knowledgeable, accommodating, and friendly. Especially Özgür went above and beyond to make sure that I had a very good experience. I highly recommend this tour.
What an experience! Spending the day with my fantastic guide Nafia was more than I could ask for. Sine it was only the two of us, She showed me sites within Ephesus which she isn’t normally able to do with large groups. Her knowledge of this ancient city was impressive and I learned so many interesting facts throughout the day.
The tour surpassed our expectations. Emre (guide) Okan (driver) are a fabulous team. Everything was organized, we were not rushed and the food choices were awesome. With their help we were able to add another tour with our trip. We finished our last day of the 7 churches with Gonca, she made the tour just as enjoyable as Emre.
Everything was great! I got picked up and transferred from my residence to the airport with no problems. Everything went very smoothly! I would book again with this company!
This is an excellent option to catch the spirit of Turkey, discovering the primary roots of its history and culture
