Our tour (we were fetched from Alacati town & driven 1.5 hrs to Ephesus). Our guide Yesim and the driver were very good. Yesim was very informative and patient. I highly recommend this tour company. We LOVED Ephesus. Don't miss House of Mary or the Terrace Houses. The included lunch was also enjoyable. My only regret was the shop we... More

We booked a private Ephesus tour with Denizhan and from the very first contact, I was impressed with his professionalism and hospitality. All questions I asked were answered thoroughly and quickly, and we were clear on what to expect even before we arrived. The costs were also reasonable - we even had an additional discount due to low season, which... More

My wife and sister were with me for a great day in Ephesus. Denizhan Pekoz was a great tour guide and met us at the Izmir Airport and took us straight to Ephesus. Denizhan was a wonderful source of information on all the local area, Turkey and really made Ephesus come alive for us. He and the driver gave us... More

We hired TransBalkan tours for Istanbul and Kusadasi. Finding them at the cruise port was easy and efficient. Our transportation in both cases was a new, clean van/bus. We received a driver and a tour guide for the day. The cost of the tours did not include parking or entrance fees. In both cities we were asked if we were... More

I contacted Denizhan and from day one he was very professional. We wanted a private tour for 5 people. We agreed on the price. He kept in touch with me, did not require a deposit nor a credit card. We arrived in Izmyr and he was there waiting for us. His wife, who is also a professional guide, was our... More

We did not book directly with Trans Balkan, it was through another agency. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to help me with my challenged mobility. And, the lunch we had at the rug place was delicious. Their English was also very good, they were easy to understand. All of that being said, we had... More

I booked a shore excursion tour for 11 "cruisers" with Denizhan several months before our trip. He was very patient and accommodating each time I increased the group numbers. During the booking process I explained that our group was not interested in ANY shopping stops. As is turns out, I learned the tour agencies are subsidized by the leather/ceramic/rug vendors,...

Me and a group of friends hired Denizha as our tour guide. We could not have had a better experience. Denizha took the time to explain in detail the key point in history for each area and was extremely knowledgable. This was a great experience and I would definitely recommend TransBalkan tours and specifically Denizha.

I was on the cruise with my familly for the first time and my friends warrned me beforehand that the shore excursions, organized by the ship, can be rather expensive for a big fammilly. Therefore I decided to find a good alternative for a reasonable price. On the web I found TransBalkan tours and it proved to be an excelent... More

I booked through this company because they provided the fastest response and the best prices for what I wanted. Kudos to Denizhan Pekoz for being so efficient. I strongly recommend using this small company. Everything is above-board, no hidden prices, etc. So nice to rely upon something when traveling abroad! I was traveling with two female friends, and we thought... More
