An excellent program that covered a lot of ground! Especially valuable for first-time visitors to this historically rich and varied land. Our guides were exceptionally knowledgable and ever-ready to answer questions, even those relating to current issues. Hotel accommodations everywhere were top quality, and the Armada in Istanbul was exceptionally charming. The considerable stair climbing and tramping over rocky, uneven ground was (for me) well termed "moderately challenging." But this was balanced by our tranquil gulet excursion. Captain and crew there (including a fine cook) were accommodating and eager to please. In summary, this trip is a winner!

What an amazing adventure. This was a well-organized, well-run trip with an incredibly varied itinerary and a fantastic guide, Burcu Tokgoz. We toured and experienced several different parts of the country, and learned so much about ancient and modern Turkey, the cultures through the ages, as well as religion, architecture, geology, cuisine, etc. The hotels exceeded my expectations. As a vegetarian, I had plenty of delicious options. Our time aboard the gulet was such a treat, and a great respite from being on the road. A shout-out to my fellow travelers - we had a great group of adventurers and I am so glad to have met each of you.

This program was excellent in all aspects. The Gulet was a highlight. Food was very good and too plentiful. In spite of some protests in Istanbul our guide was very concerned foremost about our safety. At no time were we worried.

This program exceeded our (high) expectations in every way, including the variety of accommodations, beautifully prepared and healthful food, and our guide Burcu who was knowledgeable, forthright, funny, and attentive. Every day revealed a treasure, whether geological, cultural, or historical. It's hard to pick a favorite part: Cappadocia is unique, Ephesus is beyond belief, the gulet on the Aegean is another world. This ranks up at the top of our list of Best Trips.

This was an exceptionally enjoyable tour. The hotel accommodations, transportation to the sites visited and the restaurants and menus selected were all terrific. The tour guide was also exceptionally engaging, knowledgeable of the areas visited and history of Turkey, and exceptionally responsive to individual requests by those on the tour.
