“Phil is a great guy to book through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Phil (because he looks like Phil Collins) was brilliant at steering us through the ideas we already had in place as I am a confident dual Turkish/British citizen and have no problems communicating with locals to get deals usually, but Phil got us some deals that even I would have trouble getting hold of. He booked us 2 small cars for a snip per day at the time which was a lot cheaper than our Sun City hotel at £38 per day with a min 2 day lease. Phil let us hire the cars for a day if we liked unlike the other companies. Next trip he booked a private boat for our group of 16 people and even sent in a pro photographer (Volkan) who shot hundreds of fantastic pictures on his Canon 7D. At first we wondered why we would need such pictures as we all had decent SLR's but they were so good we bought all his pictures. This had us going back and booking everything through Phil, as he couldn't do enough for us. The Scuba diving was also fantastic as was the Paragliding (please take your own camera as Phil advises you) but try not to use the Gravity team as they overcharge for extras like photos and videos of your dive (Not Phils fault though!) charging 120 lira for a cd of your Paraglide session. Phil and his team (including Volkan) were the best people I have dealt with in 35 years of visiting Turkey, so highly recommended, as he will endeavour to fix any problem that arises.

“Great days out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Booked with Phil, with some yummy apple tea. Friendly bloke went through all the trips with great info and photos. We already knew which trips we wanted though as regular turkey go-ers. Some of the trips could probably find cheaper from somewhere else, his trips were more suited to us. (No boring stops at carpet/jewellery shop at Dalyan)

We booked:

Turkish bath~ very nice hotel and English lady as your host.
Dalyan mud baths~ great aircon bus and such a good tour guide, also really liked the photographer, bought the photos from the trip on a CD from him for £20 (worth it). Very enjoyable trip! Recommend
12 island boat trip~ although personally I think Olu Deniz trip is better then this one around fethiye, but still a nice trip.. Boat was lovely and so was lunch.

Anyway would probably book again through this company as they are reliable with a good service.

“Great value and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

It was the name of the Company which caught our eye and we booked 3 trips with them.

Quad Biking was great trip 10 out of 10 for value and fun my husband, son and friend spent a half day on the trip and had a ball.

Turkish baths again fantastic value and great excursion.

Sunset boat trip via Fethiye good value, food on boat great subset was beautiful but we had been told boat would be back by 11pm and hadn't expected the entertainment after dinner - the singer/"comedian" he was great when singing but his jokes inappropriate for the kids on board and he wasn't funny at all. Boat didn't get back in till half past midnight but transfers back to hotel on time and no hassle.

On whole you won't be disappointed and lovely bonus his wife makes a mean chocolate cake and he made sure there was one for the trip!
