Janine and Ramona Group

You arranged a tour for my group of five on may 10 and 11. I would like you to know that we were very impressed with how smoothly the arrangements went, from the time we were picked up at the hotel until we were dropped off there the next day. Our guide, Nesrin , was wonderful! She provided so much information and was able to answer our questions, and she modified the trip at the end to include a tour of a winery which we had not expected. Two of our group had taken such tours before in other countries and remarked at how coordinated and exceptional your tour was. We were of course disappointed that we could not take the balloon ride but completely understand that safety must come first. I guess that gives me an excuse to visit again in the future.

I will gladly recommend your company to anyone I know who is travelling to Turkey. And I would like to add that I found the Turkish people in general to be very welcoming, kind, and helpful. I enjoyed your country and thank you again for arranging this tour. It will remain a fond memory for me.

Again Thank you so much

I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Istanbul, Onur Usta picked us up and we found him very sweet, friendly and accommodating.He took us to have good meals on both days and we toured the city.Unfortunately, we were unable to get into the Topkapi or Hagia Sofia because of the crowds lined up there for tickets, which would have meant a 2 – 3 hour wait.We also had a good time in Kusadasi, were driven to Ephesus and enjoyed it greatly. Thanks for arranging this, I’ll certainly let all my friends know about your company. Kindest regards,

Barbara & Connor

I am writing to let you know of the wonderful service I received from Elite Turkey Tours. I was trying to put a vacation together and she was accommodating, friendly, professional and a delight!! My son’s birthday was Aug 17 and I was waiting to get vacation approval so I could book a trip and put the info in his birthday card! Early afternoon on the 15th I got approval and called Hulya so she could check 2 trips for my final choice. She was prompt, called me and I booked the 8 days in Paris, Italy, Christmas. Between phone tags and my demanding work schedule, we spoke at 4:30 PST and she faxed me the confirmation and trip schedule so I could put it in my Son’s card. He was thrilled and excited and it made our day!! Thank you and I will continue to work with your company in all my travels!

Larissa & Justin

Justin and I wanted to thank you for sending the checks for the refund in Antalya!! We greatly appreciate your help on everything and have had a great experience working with you!

We wish you all the best!

I just returned from a business trip and quite exhausted after all this travelling….you can quote me below:

I had a wonderful time touring Bursa, Cumalikizik and Iznik.

Bursa is, in my opinion, NorthWest Turkeys hidden gem. If you want wonderful historic sites, gastronomy Iskender kebap), and shopping all to yourself in a verdant setting go to Bursa.

Cumalikizik is a wonderful original Ottoman village nearby…best enjoyed off-season. I would imagine staying overnight in snowy winter would be magical.

Iznik, while much smaller and boasting fewer sites, is of spiritual importance to many and, for those, not to be missed….
