  7. We have just returned to Canada after a two week trip to Turkey that far exceeded our expectations. We hired Kusadasi Tours and we were thrilled with the results. Ender, from private tours in istanbul arranged an itinerary for us at a reasonable price that included domestic flights, all hotels, breakfast and lunches and a guide and driver, as well as all entrance fees. He responded to every email promptly, and assured us that we could call him anytime before and during our trip.

    We had 4 days in Istanbul, flew to Cappadocia for 3 days, went south to the Mediterranean and on to Kusadasi and Ephesus. our guide was very professional and before each site, he would give us an overview of the history of the area, and as we toured, he would fill in details of the site.

    We can’t say enough good things about our guide. If a problem developed – passports forgotten in a hotel safe, for example - he quietly took care of it and we depended on him for everything.

    We loved the Turkish people. They are kind and welcoming and go out of their way to make sure that people enjoy their beautiful country.

    we highly suggest !!!
