Tour Reviews of Our Former Guests

Although our experience in general Turkish tourism dates back to mid 1990's years, we have been organizing tours and travel related services in Turkey since 2003 exclusively for gay and lesbian guests coming from all around the world. We are more focused on independent and customized tours and travel services for individuals and for groups rather than typical scheduled gay tours, because of the limited potential of gay visitors and also because the people need a personal touch in a country full of mysteries for new comers.

Tour Type:  Turkey Tour
Review: "My husband and I went on a 12-day/11-night trip to Turkey, and I must say that was the best decision we made because we would definitely not have been able to see everything that we did in the short span of time that we were there if we tried to do this on our own using public transport. From creating a customised itinerary for us to see the sites that we most wanted to see, to organising everything within the trip, Bulent was a delight to work with. They send you all the information you need about the authenticity of their agency. They are efficient with communication and always willing to help. And the rates are entirely reasonable. We saw everything from the sites of Istanbul to Capadoccia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Pergamon, Troia and Gallipoli. Internal transport was fully arranged and included in the price. We were also given recommendations for things to do on our free day and the best places to try specific foods at Istanbul, for which we would like to thank both Bulent and our Istanbul tour guide Mutlu"

Guest Name:  Dr. Silvio B. from Brasil
 " Friends, I'm writing to thank you for the wonderful excursion you offered me around Turkey. I've been in places which I used to dream since I was a child, like Troy, Capadocia and Pergamun. I really liked all the hotels you selected to me. The tours were fascinanting too, with well prepared guides and drivers.  People on the streets are very sweet in Turkey, like in Brazil... Before discovering Turkish people during these vacation, I thought only we, Latin Americans, could be so kind with foreigners... But your country and people really conquered my heart. Thanks for everything. I will recommend your agency to my friends."

Guest Name: Mr. Thomas F. from US and 4 friends.
Review: I wanted to let you know how much my friends and I enjoyed the private tour I booked with your company. The tour guide met us as scheduled at the dock and the entire day was enjoyable and very informative. The guide took time to explain very well everything we saw. We were very impressed that he took about 20 minutes at Topkapi Palace where there was a map and provided a brief history of Turkey and Istanbul. This was definitely a highlight of our cruise. Because of the tour we would like to visit Turkey again in order to see more of your beautiful country and would definitely use your company for this extended visit. Again, thank you very much for providing such a wonderful experience for us in Istanbul.

Guest Name: Ms. Carol G.
Review: Hi Friends
Sandy and I have had a terrific trip with adventures and many magic moments. We are back now at our Istanbul home....the Megara Palace and will write you more from our Toronto home. Traffic here is more congested than normal because Ishak Pasa Cad is closed under the railway bridge so we are requesting pickup to the airport at 8:00 am instead of 8:30 to accommodate potential delays getting in and out of the area. If you get this email, please confirm so I won't phone. Thanks for all your work. We were amazed at the smoothness of all your arrangements. Carol.

Istanbul ToursReview: Dear Friends
Thanks to you and all of your staff for making our trip a special holiday. You deserve a great deal of praise for establishing the first gay-oriented travel agency in Turkey. I am sure it was not an easy task. And although my partner and I did not avail ourselves of the "gay" specific tours and club guides, choosing instead for you to help us with a more traditional, but customized tour of two specific areas of Turkey, namely Istanbul and Cappadocia, we can say that your agency performed in a very responsive manner.  Your internet manager is the most responsive communicator I have encountered in the Internet world, and your sister and other staff addressed the problems that arose promptly and without complaint. You have an excellent team, and the problems that did arise were not of their making.....

I just wanted to drop this note to say a very heartfelt "Thank You" to you and your staff for the excellent accommodations and tour plan you put together for us. There were many variables in our itinerary and everything was executed flawlessly.
My first visit to Turkey was fantastic and memorable and I will certainly recommend your agency to any friends of mine who might be considering travel to Turkey. I wish you every success in your business.
Thanks again.

Tour Type : Customized Tour of Turkey + Athens
Guest Name: Mr. Ian Campbell and his friend Max, Australia
Review: Dear Friends.
We would like you to know that we were pleased with the itinerary and that we saw the parts of Turkey we hoped to.
We were pleased with the quality of hotels during our tour. The Hotel Helen, Atinc, Pearle Mare were satisfactory and their menu and service was adequate to our needs. The Gordion in Ankara is a good hotel we would happily recommend.
Our travels to the various itinerary locations was satisfactory, we were well looked after by the various bus companies we encountered and our journeys ended satisfactorily. The bus station pickups were very very good and were pleasing to meet. Many had waited patiently for late buses. They should be thanked.
We both are very happy with our travels in Turkey. Your organization of our itinerary proved most successful.
Thank You for your help. Our only crisis, the departure time on our itinerary for first tour day.
We heard no more from Gurkan?
The Hotel Amaryllis in Athens – it's a dump. However it does have reasonable location. The room standard is very low, (not even a small fridge in the room). The breakfasts were limited in size and range. Athens is a filthy dirty city. If it was not for the antiquities, you would not go there.
I hope everything works out with the elections for President.

Guest Name: Mr. Peter Mauceri, USA:
Review: Dear Friends, just wanted to send you a note of thanks for your excellent work in setting up our trip to Turkey. Both hotels were terrific... the one in Antalya a real mind blower!! (I didn't know daily dinner was included as well so that was a very pleasant surprise). Your personal tour was also very helpful and a nice way to orient ourselves to the city, though we really didn't have much time to go back to most of those places! We're already thinking about our next trip. hopefully sometime toward the end of the year. This time in addition to Istanbul we'd do five nights in Bodrum. what hotels do you recommend there ?
Again thanks ! you guys were terrific. We are telling all our friends to talk to you before they plan a trip to Turkey
