Couple Traveller

My husband and I booked this tour without any real expectations. From the moment we booked the tour, our guide Fazli, communicated with us via e-mail about our arrival flight and interests. Upon arrival to Turkey, Fazli was at the airport waiting for us. He called the driver and we were immediately picked up in a Mercedes Benz 10 passenger vehicle. We were taken to the hotel, Fazli indicated points of interest to have dinner and let us know the time he would pick us up from the hotel the following morning for the Blue Mosque tour. Fazli and the driver were always punctual with their pick up times. Fazli was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and desires. Fazli was great about indicating if we should wear tennis shoes or how much walking we would be doing. In the vehicle he always had cold water and made sure we took some on our walking tours. Fazli was flexible with the program as my husband wanted to visit the Ataturk Olympic Stadium and Fazli made it possible. My husband was beyond happy! If anyone is even minimally considering visiting Turkey, please do so! You will not regret it. The people are so friendly, the food is amazing and Fazli the tour guide is very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The tour we booked included breakfast, lunch and dinner in the price. It was so nice to have Fazli recommend the foods we should try because we would always visit authentic Turkish restaurants (i.e. the restaurants the locals visit). Every single dish we tried we loved, but our absolute favorites were the pides (pizzas). Visiting Capadoccia was a bucket list item and spending the night in a cave was a once in a lifetime experience. From the beginning I expressed to Fazli my desire to book the hot air balloon ride and we were able to fly in one because he did the reservations in advance. We have amazing memories from this trip. Upon arrival to the U.S. we have recommended Turkey and Serendipity Tours to all of our friends. Fazli will take care of our friends and we know they will have an amazing time. You will not regret booking this tour. Thank you so much to Fazli for an amazing time, as we said before, we will return soon to Turkey because we still have so much to explore.
