    What does it say about a tour when you cry when it is time to say goodbye to your guide and driver? I can say with all my heart that there was not one thing that went wrong or was not to my satisfaction for the entire 6 days and 7 nights. Emre was the super perfect guide and Harkon the most courteous and careful driver. I must also make comment of the tour company, Tour Altinkum. Every time I contacted them, with perhaps a nervous silly question prior to the tour they responded within 1/2 an hour, day or night. I felt secure in their hands. I would be honoured for anyone considering doing this tour to contact me directly for a recommendation. Thank you so much to everyone involved.

    I worked with Kerem on creating a custom itinerary for my trip to Turkey this past fall. He was able to pull together flights, transfers, accommodation, tours, visits, meals and exclusive visits based on my preferences, allowing me to spend time on other things. The tour guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. I got sick one day and my guide took me to the hospital and stayed with me the entire time and was so concerned. Just goes to show the caliber of people they hire. The hotels they selected for me were very comfortable, clean and you can tell they take pride in their selections. The best thing about it is they’re affordable. I have told several friends about using their services. Highly recommend them. They’re trusted and professional! Thanks Kerem for putting up with my million emails/questions and always being so patient and responsive.
