The initial communication with Ozkan prompted a rapid and helpful response and the communication remained this way right up to our 5 day visit to Turkey. The whole organisation of our visit was excellent. Our 5 days were packed from early morning to evening with 2 day tours of Istanbul, and visits to Ephesus, Capadoccia and Gallipoli. Although we were a little concerned initially about being based in Istanbul and taking day trips (2 by plane) to other destinations, this worked out extremely well without the hassles of carrying luggage from place to place. We were also fortunate to have an excellent hotel - Harbiye Residence, where the room was spacious and clean and staff very friendly. Our guides were all very good with excellent knowledge of the various sites and the country in general. A special mention for Abdil, our guide for 3 of the days. His relaxed but highly organised approach was an absolute delight. Nothing was too much trouble - especially when we wanted to spend a little extra time shopping or seeing something different. And, of course, there was the introduction to a number of "very local" restaurants which was an added bonus.
