Dear Kursat,
We are back in New York now and am a little rested from our very exciting trip to
Turkey. We want to thank you and comment you for an excellent trip, You sure did a
very professional booking. Everything went well in every locations. We would
definitely recommend you to our friends and relatives. Best wishes for the New Year,

Dear Gencay,
Our family has returned to Bangkok yesterday with a lot of fond memories from Turkey. My wife and daughter did the hot air balloon in Cappadocia, bought 2 Turkish double knotted carpets, an expensive hand made chandelier weighing almost 350 kgs, Turkish traditional music CDs, boxes of Turkish Delights. Inspite of the first 24 hours problems, we have found Kursat did a wonderful itinerary for us and thanks to you for stepping in to execute his plan to the perfection. Your country has so much to offer and the Turkish people are so friendly and kind. We have enjoyed our holiday there and looking forward to returning again in the future. Best regards, Boontem Dhaneswongse www.temthai.com

Dear Mustafa and Kursat
We would like to thank you so much for a memorable trip to Turkey. I found your company on the internet and from the outset was impressed by the very quick response you gave to my first query. You followed this up by demonstrating professionalism, responsiveness and a high level of service throughout our trip. Thank you Mustafa for your patience and the advice you gave us in preparing a fabulous itinerary. Our only comment was - we wish we had more time in so many places!
The guides you had assigned to us were very friendly, professional and keen to teach us much about Turkey and the Turkish culture. Your continual follow up with guides (and some hotels) immediately prior to our arrival was impressive and thoughtful; we knew and appreciated that you ran a professional, customer-centric operation..
One highlight? Impossible - there were so many. However, some noteworthy ones: the Bosphorus Cruise; Gallipoli; scenery along our Mediterranean cruise; exploring the many ruins (e.g. Ephesus, Aspendos); Istanbul and particularly the balloon ride over Cappadocia. The company you had chosen was very professional. Our photos are spectacular. The constant availability of your staff was also impressive. There were many additional touches which made this trip very special. We have no hesitation in recommending your travel agency. Sincere thanks for a great trip.

We have been back in Canada for several days now and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to Turkey and the tours you arranged. All the arrangements you made worked well and we were particularly pleased with the hotels in both Istanbul (Erguvan) and Cappadocia (Gimarasu). If I have one suggestion for improvement it would be the tour operator in Cappadocia. On the return trip, we had a wait for over an hour in Goreme for a shuttle bus to leave and then had a very rushed
and hectic check in and security screening process when we did get the airport - the result was that we had no time for dinner on that day. Turkey is one of only a few places in the world we have been that we know we definitely want to visit again and for longer. Thank you again for setting this all up for us.
Jan and Susan Carr

Dear Kursat,
We're on our way to the airport soon, but we didn't want to leave without again thanking you for arranging and managing an amazing trip for us. We were enthralled with the sights, sounds and scenery of your country, but what really made this trip special were the people ... from Numan, who showed us the wonders of Istanbul; to the young man across the Galata Bridge who offered my mom a stool and some tea while she waited on a busy sidewalk for me to buy an electrical plug; to the writer in Sirince who built a tower (completely furnished at the top!) to protest the idiocy of government; to the man in Kabak who pulled the car out a rut in a narrow dirt path that I foolishly had followed looking for the "end of the road;" to the older gentleman riding his scooter outside Kas who stopped to help us change a flat tire; to the countless "men on the street" who somehow helped us find where we were going even though we spoke no Turkish and they spoke little or no English; and most of all, to you, who made it all possible. So often as tourists, we feel like people just look at us as a way to make money, and of course, we had that experience here too, but we NEVER had that feeling from you. Your help in planning this trip was invaluable, but more important to us, you did not abandon us while we were here. You truly were "the fixer," and you always were very gracious in making things right for us. We would not have had such a wonderful experience were it not for you. We are very grateful! Angie & Marianne Schmidt

I wasn't with Caitlin and Carmel when they returned your phone, so I wanted to follow up to say a big "thank you" for organizing such a wonderful trip for us. We all had a great time, and all the logistics went very smoothly. The hotel in Istanbul was great, and we were delighted with our accommodations in Antalya and our two hotels in Cappadocia. And we were very impressed with our guide in Cappadocia who did both the private tour and the regular tours. We are happy to recommend your services to anyone else traveling over there. And if any of us come back to Turkey (which we all hope to do!) we will certainly work with you. Thanks again, Suzanne Graham. mentor.com

Dear Kursat,
Thank you so much for arranging a wonderful holiday in Turkey, we will certainly return and without any hesitation we will be recommending you and your agency. I certainly appreciated your personal attention to the details which made this trip a truly memorable experience. Unfortunately our last night we could not catch up with you (you were at a soccer match), perhaps next time. The people were wonderful, the sites fantastic, food superb and shopping...wow. Kusadasi was fabulous and the ******* Hotel super, we have only scratched the surface of this area and have so much more to visit... Please pass on my warmest greetings to your staff in Istanbul & others in Kusadasi, Fethiye & Cappadocia who have made this journey flawless. If you ever come to NZ please let me know, everyone in the group would love to catch up with you. All the best with your work and once again Thank You. Jenny Abella

Dear Kursat & Ali,
Just wanted to say "many thanks for a wonderful trip to Turkey". Your organization was excellent - every part of our trip was great. Ali - I guess by now you are a married man, so our congratulations, and I am sure your wedding was superb. Your choice of hotels was excellent. ****** Hotel - it would have been better if they had someone who spoke English but for one night it was no big deal as this was the best option here. We were very fortunate that the owner's son, Aydin, came to our rescue and gave us a wonderful tour of Aydin (he spoke a beautiful English!!) As Aydin was also where my father was born, it was even more special. All the tour leaders were knowledgeable and great company. We have been telling our friends about your company and how wonderful Turkey is and we are looking forward to visiting again and may be visiting new places. I would very much like to have the email addresses of the following so that I can thank them individually *.*.*........., sorry to inconvenience you and once again thanks for a wonderful programme, many thanks. Harold and Emelie USA

Hello Kursat,
We have returned safely to Canada and I wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had. We enjoyed every bit of it and appreciated how much work you had done to make it perfect for us. We were so well looked after and everyone was so helpful and kind. In particular our guide ******** was the best guide we've ever had: she was caring, thoughtful, very clever and well-informed and, on top of all that, she was great fun to be with. All our drivers were tremendous too. I have nearly all my slide back now and will be showing them to all my friends. I have already passed on your details to people who would like to visit Turkey. So again thank you very much for all you have done for us. I would be delighted to recommend your company to anyone I think might be interested in visiting Turkey. Irene Frances Brandt and Barry John Chislett

Dear Mustafa,
First I apologize for not writing sooner. What a long trip I had from Istanbul to London to San Francisco-Seattle and home to Anchorage took me 32 hours with layovers to get home was very exhausting but it was all worth it. My daughters and i had a wonderful time, good hotels, very efficient in all the transportation, good tours, good people. We really had a marvelous time thanks to you, we had the right amount of tours, travel and free time. We want to come back and see Cappadocia, Troy, etc.. Also want to thank you for the wonderful wine. My knee was better but had a setback did too much exercise but am getting a little better now. Hope this letter will reach you and your family in good health. Again thank you for everything we have been telling our friends had a great time in your country, friendly people. We also tell acquaintances and friends if they ever go to Turkey will give them a name for a travel agent, who will really take care of you. Best Regards, Josephine Huskey - USA

Dear Mustafa,
We enjoyed our tour of Turkey from start to finish. It was most comforting to have you meet us at the airport and drive us to our hotel. The ******** hotel was just excellent - good location, nicely equipped & extremely clean. We appreciated and enjoyed ********'s tour. We found her knowledge and English very good. She was nice company also. Iksan (not sure of the spelling) did a good job as a safe driver. The tour sites that we visited were most interesting and it was a thrill to fly on a hot air balloon in Cappadocia. Thank you again for organizing such a good tour for us, it's great to be able to travel safely as female travelers in a foreign country and be so well looked after. I will spread the 'good word' on visiting your amazing country. Yours truly, Sharon, Ronda, Linda, Caroline. Qatar

Dear Kursat,
Thank you for leading us on our adventure in Turkey. From the minute you met us at the airport I knew that we were in good hands. Your self-discipline, enthusiasm, love for the culture, organization and ability to meet us with firmness, insight, humor and goodwill, made the trip everything and more than we could have hoped for. For some it was tremendously enriching; for others, it was transformative. The group really became galvanized in the course of the 9 days. The trip itself was very well thought out, with the first part keeping us moving through all kinds of experiences and a slower pace in the final days gave all of us a sense of relaxation. We are back in US now, and feel so sad to have had to leave Turkey. It was one of the most fantastic vacations we have ever been on. So much much better than doing a group type vacation. Everyone was so nice, cooperative, and proud of their country. And I see Why Now. I can honestly say, Turkey is on the top of our list of memorable destination's visited. Once again Kursat, thank you and your wonderful support staff for making our visit unforgettable. We will always remember this trip and not fail to praise you to our friends and acquaintances. We hope we can send some business your way. Good luck with your business and family. Timothy, Karen, Marcus, Weston, Kristen, Lance, Sophia Buford. Timothy & Karen Buford - USA

Thanks for a fantastic Turkey experience. Everything was well organized, laid out and efficient. The meals fantastic. We both had a fantastic time and are busy recommending your services. Please give our hugs to your lovely wife and daughter. We also wish you happiness with your new baby and do not forget to send us her first photos. Best regards and hope to travel with you again in the future. Victoria Brown & Sarah O'Connell -USA

Hi Mustafa,
I feel so bad as I haven't replied to your great news I have been so busy over the last few months...have no idea where time has gone. Firstly our sincere congratulations on becoming a father...by now your two little treasures would be home...hope they are well and you and your wife are enjoying every minute. What did you name them and are they very alike even though fraternal twins? Thank you so much for your great work in Turkey...we all had a fantastic time...you did a great job, We all would highly recommend you We loved the tour guide at Troy...she was so entertaining. Our stay at ******* was great...the people so lovely to us. The driver to Kusadasi was excellent...we loved ****** hotel and wished we had stayed there another two days. The Gallipoli guide and tour was excellent I got sick after the first night. Unfortunately for me that ruined my stay in Kusadasi...but I still managed to do a brief tour of Ephesus...so glad I pushed myself to go. We went on to have another great week in the Greek islands...our favourite was Mykonos. Once again our sincere thanks and best wishes with your new family, wishing you happiness, health and love.

Dear Kursat
Some feedback on our vacation in your beautiful country. We had an excellent trip and thank you and your staff again for your good services in making all the arrangements and for always being available for us, no matter where we were on our tour through Turkey. The guides you provided were knowledgeable, professional, punctual and pleasant to be with, and the drivers were competent and prudent. We enjoyed all the sites we visited. We were happy with most of the arrangements you made for us. We particularly enjoyed our stay at the ***** Hotel in Antalya, a truly lovely boutique hotel. The room was very nice and the food excellent. All the the arrangements were totally satisfactory (we were particularly impressed with the comfort of the inter-city buses). We hope to come back to Turkey to visit those regions that we did not have time to see on this trip, the east and north. When the time comes, be assured that we will call on you to make all the arrangements. As well, we will not hesitate to recommend you as and when the opportunity arises to do so. With best wishes and regards, Annalise and Mark Schrager - Canada

I just wanted you to know how thoroughly I enjoyed my travels with Linda Coates on the itinerary you planned for us! I have a group of friends to whom I will recommend your services with pleasure. Thank you for making us feel welcome in your office with the tea and letting us use your computers! I am home, jetlagged, but so delighted with the wonders of your lovely homeland!! Thank you for everything, Nancy Bradley. USA

Dear Kursat & Mustafa,
I would like to personally thank you and your team in making my holiday in Turkey an excellent one. Me and my friends were very pleased with all the arrangements, the hotel and the tours that was prepared for us. We would like to thank you for the hotel recommendation in Kusadasi, the location was excellent, right next to the bazaar and we were facing the beautiful ocean view. Our driver that picked us up at Izmir airport - Omar was also an excellent driver and was in tune to our needs as tourist as he stopped along the way where there are an excellent scenic view to Kusadasi for us to take pictures. He even stopped at a fruit seller by the road side to buy us some oranges to taste out of his own pocket when we inquired about the fruits that was on sale. His hospitality really made us feel very welcome and at home. We also enjoyed our trip to Pamukkale and Ephesus and we find that the local tour guide, helpful and knowledgeable. We are all really happy with the services provided by your agency and we would not hesitate to recommend our friends and families from using your services in the future. Thanks and keep up the good work. Cheers, Shireen Putri Shireen Syed Othman -Malaysia

Dear Mustafa,
I hope everything is OK with you and family. We had a wonderful time in your beautiful country, it is difficult for us to pinpoint a favourite place. We'll definitely be back one day and you'll know when. Everything went all right, on time, no problems. Please convey a big Thank You to all the people that took care of us (drivers, guides, etc), we really had a great time. If any of our friends or colleagues will think to visit turkey, we will for sure recommend you. Health and all the best Mustafa. Derian Tyler - Australia

Dear Kursat,
"Thank you very much for making our trip to Turkey stress free and most memorable. We almost did not have to be worried about anything to plan for the trip that we became too spoilt!" I really meant it! For several years already, me and my wife have been trying to take a trip to various places and we agree that the trip to Turkey is the best one so far. You can find all sort of experience in your beautiful country, the beach, historical roman ruins, cultural experience, religious buildings and atmosphere, the scenery but I think one thing that really sets Turkey apart from the other places that we have been to is how friendly and helpful the people are. I think you and all the people who we met certainly shows that quality. Kursat, as promised, enclosed with this email is some photos during our trips across Turkey. I hope you can enjoy the picture as much as we do. Cheers, Jaydon & Leslie - New Zealand

To Kursat and Mustafa,
An amazing experience… We have only just settled back home after a perfect honeymoon and then visiting family for a few days. We are exhausted but sooooooo happy! I can't tell you how wonderful our holiday was, there is so much to say. Both Istanbul and Bodrum were excellent offering us two very different, but equally brilliant stays. Istanbul is truly magnificent and we took the opportunity to see it in as many ways as we could. We had a wonderful sunset boat trip, spent a fantastic evening in Kumkapi. We particularly enjoyed our accommodation in Istanbul, it was exceptional as you said, it is an unbelievable place and they were so welcoming, personal and could not have done more for us. Obviously the views from our balcony were amazing! The staff made this a very special start to our holiday. The hotel in Bodrum was also outstanding. It's location was perfect for strolling into the restaurants and nightlife. All transfers and tickets etc, got to us as you said and all staff who we met us along the way were lovely and very helpful. We felt like royalty most of the time when we travelled as we would watch other people struggling for taxis and we would be whisked off in our private car - excellent! Finally we would like to thank you for making this such a special time. We have some wonderful memories and we feel that without your recommendations, service and organisation we would not have had such a fantastic time. Thank you to you Kursat and Mustafa and to all the staff who helped us. Priya Patel - Brazil

Hi Ali,
Just a quick note to say thanks, we have just got back and I cannot sleep (jet lag). We really enjoyed our time in Turkey and the trip you put together for us was terrific. We had a great time in Istanbul and also in Cappadocia, which is an amazing place. I could have spent a couple more days in Istanbul, I would like to see the new part, and so that might be enough for me to make the trip again ! Thanks again and we will certainly be recommending your company to anyone who asks. Regards. Mario Mark Anders -Australia

Dear Bulent,
You asked for my testimonial which I would gladly give 100 times over because you treated me so well ! Not only did I feel safe in Turkey, but you added a very personal touch by inviting me to watch football, calling me to make sure I was OK and helping me get a needed shower upon my arrival in Cappadocia when the hotel said it wasn't possible. THANK YOU SO MUCH for making things possible that any other agency may have dismissed as unimportant. You are the best ! I will, without hesitation, send travelers your way to experience the service I received from you. Traveling as a single American woman alone for the first time in Turkey, I was a bit nervous BUT having the mobile phone with me along with your caring spirit made my trip one of a lifetime ! My only issues are that I did not stay long enough in Turkey, and my feet hurt everyday from touring Turkey's endless wonderful sites. As far as Turkey overall, I found the culture and people to be passionate, safe and extremely fascinating. Turkey is like an onion - when you start to peel it you discover more and more layers and with each layer it gets better. Just when I thought I could not see or experience any more mind boggling events, something else would come my way. Turkey as a country and Bulent as a travel agent are my new favorite travel experiences - can't wait to return. I will keep in touch. Tami Crady - USA

Hi Mustafa,
Thank you for all of your help while we were in Istanbul. I arrived back in Rome yesterday morning and all went well. If I know of anyone who is in need of your services I will for sure refer them to you. Please thank Ceyhun and his staff at the ******* Hotel for me, they were superb, as were the staff at the Metropolis Cafe and Restaurant. One day while walking home from the Blue Mosque we were stopped by a television crew from Kanal A. They filmed us repeating things that they said in Turkish...I don't know what I said nor do I know if it was ever aired on tv, but it was an experience. Good luck with everything and thank you again, take care. Julie Simonsen -USA

Dear Bulent,
On behalf of our fellow travelers, I want to thank you for making this such a memorable trip. Without your personal attention this would not be achievable. On a personal note; my wife and I are grateful for your help in getting us home in short notice. Unfortunately ..................... prior to our return. Arret (our guide) has been invaluable. His knowledge of Turkish History ( ancient and modern ) is encyclopedic. Please convey my personal thanks for all he did to get us home. Prof. Anthony Law - Canada

Dear Bulent,
We had an amazing trip to Turkey this March Break. Everything was very well organized and set in place. We rarely had troubles and the tours were amazing. I personally liked going to the underground city in Cappadocia and loved seeing Pamukkale and it's mountains. Istanbul was full of heart and history, which we loved seeing. Did I mention the food? It was superb! My only regret of Turkey was that I gained a little weight. Don't think that will stop me from coming back, though. You have done a great job with this company and made this trip for us very worth-while. You and your company should be very proud of yourselves for coming up with these great tours and putting us in these great hotels. We felt very safe, comfortable and reassured that we were with a company that knows what they were doing. Thanks for everything, Dr. Falih Hafuth Family. Canada

Dear Mustafa,
I have been going to phone the last two days but have been busy in the morning and then it has been too late your time with the time change. I wanted to let you know that we received the credit to our mastercard when I checked a few days ago. Thank you very much. We are doing well. Robert is still working on our hardwood flooring. It is a big project and he is doing a wonderful job. It looks great. We hope all is well in Istanbul, and we will try to give you a call soon. I am teaching some art classes tomorrow, but maybe we will talk to you on the weekend. Take care, love Trudy. Canada

Dear Kursat,
a dear friend of ours here in Canada left for Istanbul two days ago. We asked her (her name is Maureen) to visit you at the Travel Office. She can give you firsthand information about us and pass on our warmest greetings to you and your family. This is Maureen’s first visit to Turkey and she is there with a group of Christians. Madeleine and I will be leaving for South Asia (Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia) on March 23. We will be gone till the first week of May. Then back home for a month and then off to Kenya, South Africa in June. Unfortunately no Turkey visit this year! I will be only too happy to respond to your clients if they contact me. Blessings Herbert and Madeleine. Calgary Canada

Dear Kursat,
I am now back in Houston .This e mail is to let you know the following . Consider this a feedback for your excellent services and planned trip ,so well organized. Being a physician, I am very particular about service to patients. We both belong to the same category" Service to clients". Right from the day we landed at the airport in Istanbul, till we left after 8 days you had provided us with excellent transport ,good hotels, hospitable drivers and knowledgeable guides. And this goes for all places, Istanbul, Izmir, Ephesus, Aphrodisias, Cappadocia. Also being a photographer, I was glad to get enough time to do my photography, and had no constrain on the time. All your people were helpful and bent backwards with a smile. If anyone in States want to contact me for information, you are most welcome to give my phone #s and my email address. Please extend my compliments to all your people, particularly the guides who instilled a lot of history in their talks. Regards to your family and staff. Needless to say we had a great time with the trip and more so with you. You have a warm heart and most important a genuine person. Affectionately Nalin Trivedi (Grandpa) USA

Dear Mustafa,
We are now back in Melbourne after a long flight. You have done an excellent job, all of the tour guides were fantastic. They were very professional and also very nice and friendly. I enjoyed the mix of having tour guides at times and being on our own at other times. Istanbul was truly an amazing city, we both loved it there. More than anything we very much enjoyed visiting your office for Turkish coffee (very strong :) . Cappadocia was unreal and we enjoyed the 2 tours a lot. I loved Kas what a cute little town. The sunken city boat tour was awesome, no wonder Turkey is called the cradle of civilizations. It was amazing that you were able to assemble such a great trip for us with such little notice. I will definitely keep your contact details for future trips and for reference to friends. Thanks so much for all your help! Beth ATKINS.

Dear Kursat,
I just wanted to inform that we reached India safely. I would like to thank you for the wonderful time we had in Turkey. The arrangements were very nice . I sincerely wished we have visited Antalya too. The coordination was very nice and thank you for everything and if everything goes well, will get in touch with you for my Egypt trip. If you are visiting our part of the country, please let me know. Regards to you and your wife. Deepa Shridar
