Great tour! Gained a lot of new knowledge and friends. Turkey is a wonderful country. Would highly recommend this tour.

By Madhu G on May 18, 2013

The Tour was hectic. Too much walking in Istanbul, whcih was very tiring for Senior Citizens. It was long rides in the bus between cities, almost seven to nine hours, which made it very exhausting for us. The Hotels and the food provided were excellent.

By Barbara P on Oct 20, 2012

My overall reaction to the tour was good. 

By Patricia B on Jun 30, 2012
