I wrote to Byzas Tours, trying to setup a tour to Ephesus. They sent a form for me to fill out. I filled it out, then sent it to them. They claimed not to be able to view the form that I sent to them. I took another photo and re-sent, then also sent an e-mail with all of the... More

We were on a shore excursion from the Celebrity Equinox with a group of 12 in May 2014. We had a fabulous tour with Ozer as our guide. We started with a 2 hour private yacht tour of the Bosphorus and then saw the sights of Istanbul such as the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, the Cistern (my favourite), Hagia Sophia... More

After reading a lot of reviews we finally decided to book our tour with Byzas Tours. Did not regret it. They are very precise with their itinerary and schedule their services accordingly. They arrange to get us from a hotel in Sultanhamet area, brought us to airport. When we checked in with Atlas Airlines it was a breeze. Arrived in... More

Byzas Tours arranged a private 1 week mini-tour of Turkey for me and my husband. The planning was flawless and the guides and divers were friendly and professional. Hotels chosen were all as represented by Byzas Tours. I would highly recommend this company for touring in Turkey. All arrangements were made via email.

Excelent service, everything happened as it was told by the company since the beginning. The guided tour was very nice. One bad thing is that it finished a bit early, and then we had like 1 hour waiting for the transfer from the city to the airport to go back to Istanbul. It would've been nice to visit some other...

My sister and I booked two day trips. Departed Istanbul and flew to Cappadocia one day (back to Istanbul), then flew to Efes the next day. Byzas Tours orchestrated two perfect trips for us. The guides were knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We toured is a small van with approximately 5-6 other guests. Byzas included some side stops each day.... More

As others have said we were very pleased with the service, guides and hotels from Byzas. We upgraded our 7 day tour to private and patinum level hotels which we were pleased with. Our tour included 2 days in Istanul, 2 in Cappadocia and 2 in Izmir. My only suggestion would be in Istanbul to perhaps change to a hotel... More

We can just confirm what we read in many reviews. We had booked a private tour to Ephesus (via Izmir) at the beginning of September over internet. All the pick-ups from the hotel, airport at Izmir and then back in Istanbul worked like a charm. The guide was knowledgeable and attentive, a huge advantage of a private tour (albeit it's... More
