“the best tour ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

My daughter, sister-in-law, best friend and I recently returned from the 15 day classic Turkey tour with Troy Tour.We were all so impressed by the country and the tour.Even before we left John(Can ) was very helpful .Turkish air was on time and was very comfortable. Our guide Mine was so wonderful, she made our trip more meaningful. We went in January during the off the season tour that everything was easy to get to, not crowded, and it wasn't even that cold. Traveling on the mini van was very comfortable; it even had wi-fi just like your own home. Mine had water for us on the bus so we never had to buy bottled water. Some days we were in the van for 4-5 hours but there were always rest stops we could stop in for the bathroom and a cup of tea. The best thing about the bus ride was that the scenery changed every hour so you never got bored looking out the window- you see the snow on the mountains, then suddenly it is green field!

All the hotels were pretty nice and pleasant in great locations. The cave hotel"Gamirasu cave hotel" In Capadocia was a such a treat. We were so happy we could have stayed up all night.
The food was delicious, and we were always looking forward to the next meal.
The places we visited were like a big surprise one after another- Istanbul, Ankara, pamukkale,perge, efes, Pergamum etc...Even if you do research before you go, when you are there you are speechless. It is like you are going back in time. Everywhere in Turkey is a museum itself! We all highly recommend you must go to Turkey to experience what we have experienced.We all had a great time in Turkey!

“wonderful tour experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We took the Classic Turkey tour in November. Everything went smoothly. We had the most wonderful tour guide, Mine Gezen. She spoke excellent English, she was very conscientious and absolutely delightful. Mine provided us with so much history and background which added to our understanding of this beautiful country.

Our driver was fantastic. He handled our van so well in heavy rain and maneuvered some tight spaces like a pro. He kept the vehicle clean and comfortable and we always felt safe.

Because we went off season our group was relatively small. They were all such a great bunch of travel buddies. It felt like family.

Thank you so much, Troy Tours, for a wonderful experience.

“Classic Turkey Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

my family of 4(including a 4 year old) went on the Classic Turkey tour in november. We had an amazing time. I have travelled a lot but never on a group tour. This was one of the best trips we have ever had. Everything was taken care of, we just sat back and enjoyed. The hotels were nice, the tours were nice. The only thing you might want to consider is that you travel on a bus from city to city which can be many hours on the bus. We however didnt mind because it allowed us to really see the country. If you travel with kids just make sure to take something they can watch movies on while on the bus. I had many questions and Can was always very prompt at answering, actually all of my emails were answered within the hour. We were very satisfied with the whole experience.

“Airline tickets to Turkey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I used Troy tours to purchase airline tickets to Turkey. The experience was pleasant and satisfactory. They assisted me with the best price. They were professional and knowledable. They also assisted me with my hotel reservations in Turkey.
I shall use them again in my future trips to Turkey.
Thank you, Troy Tours Team (-:

“Highlights of Turkey, Troy Tours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our "Highlights of Turkey" tour through Troy Tours was very good. All transfers and transport went off without hitch. All 3 local tour guides were on time, knowledgeable and flexible. The restaurants that each guide took us to were great examples of Turkish cuisine. We enjoyed the 3 hotels included in the package, each for different reasons, but the Gamirasu Cave Hotel alone was worth the cost of the trip!

The only area for improvement was our correspondence with Can Cetin, our contact person. When we realized that one round trip flight within Turkey was missing from our documents, we attempted to get that last piece of information from Can, but it took several emails from both parties traveling before he finally sent us our flight information. Apparently providing flight numbers to their clients is "outside of their normal operations".
