    Had to unfortunately cancel the trip just one day before the departure due to covid. Despite the short notice, we got the full amount refunded within two days, no deductions! That is what I call a great service! While planning the trip, our organiser Kerem took care of all the little details and modified the itenerary several times to meet our wishes. I will definitely plan a trip to turkey again and tour altinkam travels will be my first choice.

    Hot air balloon ride was the main intention of going to Turkey / Cappadocia. The ride was amazing and the views below were breathtaking. Looking at numerous stone formations was feast to eyes. Observing the whole process of inflating the balloon to its take off was very interesting. Certainly added to my knowledge. Seeing hundreds of balloons in the sky at the same time, is an achievement. Guys, you must visit Cappadocia and take hot air balloon ride.

    We decided to choose Tour Altinkum Travel, because of recommendations from other Thai tourists who have used this company before. And we definitely found that we made the right decision to let Tour Altinkum Travel arrange a private tour program for us to Ephesus / Pamukkale / and Cappadocia. 1st – Quick response when we ask questions through websites and e-mails. 2nd – Deposit cost prior to the trip happen is more reasonable than other company offers. 3rd – We found that all tour guides ( we got 3 for each place) are very friendly and professional. We really enjoy our vacations in Turkey. 4th – Vehicles & Drivers they arrange for us also a very good size and Drivers also friendly. For anyone who looking for spending your vacation in Turkey, we highly recommended considering TAT
