Thank you Travel bazaar.From the beginning to the end we had so much fun. We were e-mailing with mehmet and he made clear everything for us so we had nothing to worry about. The tour itself was just perfect. Turkey has great history and great sites. Our guides were very professional and we learnt much from them. I really loved mdc hotel in Cappadocia. A marvellous hotel in an amazing landscape. Everything went so smoothly that we had nothing to do but just enjoy the sightseeings. Travel bazaar is highly recommended.

“Turkey Travel Bazaar's Eight days 7 Wonders of Turkey Tour was excellent!”

Coskun Kaplan was easy to work with when planning our trip. He was very clear in the itinerary, price and hotels my husband and I would stay at. He provided websites to the hotels we were to use. Great communication from him via email and upon arrival he met us in the hotel w/ our itinerary and flight information. He provided his card and made me feel comfortable in knowing that we could contact him anywhere along the route w/ any questions/concerns. He also provided contact info. on the different tour agencies we were to use in each city. We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day tour with plane connections. The tour guides provided in Ephesus (Cenghis sp?) and Cappadocia (Mustafa) were our absolute favorites. They brought history to life and were very knowledable and personable. They have a passion for their history, culture and country and you could tell they really enjoy what they do. The only guides we felt we could have done w/out were the ones in Istanbul through She Tours. My husband and I would've been comfortable w/ a only a guidebook as most of the sites were all within walking distance and could have easily been done. We weren't given enough time at the Grand Bazaar (45") and Spice Bazaar (45" ) but fortunately we had arrived a day earlier so we were able to visit these places at our leisure. What we especially liked about this tour was the small numbers 8-12 (the Istanbul grp was probably the largest during the Bosphorous cruise day, maybe 20 people?) Since the tourguides were local to each city, it was a different group of tourists in each city as well which was nice. We got to meet such a large variety of interesting people from all over! And if there's one annoying person in the grp it was nice to know that they weren't travelling with you to the next site : ) We would definitely use Turkey Travel Bazaar again and hope to explore Eastern Turkey next time. We were taken care of every step of the way.

Thanks to all our tourguides and to Coskun!!
