The Turkey Classics Tour was excellent! The itinerary was a great way to experience Turkey outside of Istanbul, and we were very pleased about what we saw and the overall pace of the tour. Our driver, Mehrat, was wonderful - careful and conscientious, we always felt safe. And our tour guide, Tamer, was fantastic!!! Tamer's knowledge on general history, combined with the specific history of the sites we saw and the area we covered, was tremendous. He taught us so much outside of history, too, focusing on current-day Turkey, inclusive of culture, politics, people, and religion. Our conversations were educational and interesting, and we enjoyed every moment! Tamer also went above and beyond by helping us make extra arrangements regarding travel and recommendations in Istanbul. He's a fantastic tour guide, and a wonderful, warm person who truly made the tour exceptional!

In regards to any improvement recommendations, I would offer to be aware that there is a of drive-time involved. We were prepared for this, but I would call it out so there are no surprises. Also, I would recommend an extra day in Cappadocia to see the sites more leisurely.

I just finished this tour (27th July - 2nd August) and it was fantastic. Our guide was Göksu, our driver was Murat and both were very friendly. I'd say this tour hinges on the quality of the guide and he was first class. Great to chat to, very knowledgable, great English and he creates a very comfortable atmosphere. He cared a lot about making sure the tour suited us and answered all our questions. When you go for food, trust his recommendations!

The tour was at a very relaxed pace - perfect for someone like me who is happy with only 1/2 hours history a day. For real history buffs, I'd possibly recommend a longer tour so you can spend more time at some of the larger sites.

I was impressed with the quality of the hotels and there was plenty of time to make use of the pools. Food was always tasty and traditionally Turkish although as the evening meals are pre-arranged you do miss out on the chance to roam local restaurants for yourself.

We visited 3 craft workshops: carpet, leather and ceramics. Ceramics was particularly enjoyable and we were all given a chance to make some pottery ourselves (with a serous amount of help). One warning about the leather shop: they place massively inflate price tags. I purchased a purse which was advertised as $450, I paid $112 but later found a second price tag inside they'd forgotten to remove which was for $35. Thankfully, after I emailed them, they got in touch with Göksu who once again sorted everything and they agreed to a partial refund. Whilst annoying, this certainly didn't detract from the overall experience.

This was my first time in Turkey and Göksu did an amazing job introducing me to their history and culture. I am confident that anyone who has the same guide will have a great time.

And many thanks to Murat who got up extra early specially to take me to the airport!

What a fantastic way to visit Turkey for the first time and experience so many highlights.
Tour guide Tamer was excellent with his friendliness and extensive knowledge especially at Gallipoli, Troy and Ephesus. He knew exactly how much information to provide and when to provide it and was keen to make sure our experience was top notch. Driver Seyfi did a great job making the bus travel smooth and stress free - very professional.
But the highlight of the tour was the hot air ballooning in Cappadocia - an experience of a lifetime!
The tour was extensive in its coverage and excellent value. Well done team.

The booking experience was very easy and Canan was very helpful. From the pick up from our hotel to the drop off after the tour was an awesome experience. Genghis was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, his information regarding the history of Turkiye was very impressive. I would venture to say that Genghis was the best tour guide I have ever had. The hotels we stayed at were very impressive and it was capped off with the stunning cave hotel at Gamirasu. This tour is recommended to anyone who wants to learn the history of Turkiye and it’s very diverse history. A special mention goes to Murat who was our driver for the tour and provided us with safe passage throughout Turkiye, with some very difficult and tight locations.

My husband and I just finished an amazing 7 day tour around Turkey (Nov 8-14, 2021) with Fez Travel. Our tour guide's name was Khan and from the moment we joined the tour, he made sure we were well taken care of. He was constantly checking in to make sure we liked the food, our rooms, and the activities. He would step in to adjust things if we had any specific preferences or needs. But probably the best thing was his knowledge. I learned so much about the history of Turkey, the significance of the sights we were seeing, the culture, the food...everything! His narrative made the tour more meaningful, it helped break up the longer drives, and it made me want to come back again to see more.

Our driver Yilmaz was also amazing! He was always ready and waiting for us (even at 11pm after going to the Turkiah dance performance). He took care of good care of our luggage when we got to the hotels, and he even helped us learn some Turkish :)

The hotels and food were great for the price. We especially liked the hotels in Kusadasi and Cappadocia.

Again, amazing tour and company. We'd love to come back again, and we'll be highly recommending Fez Travel to our friends and family!

My friend and I came to Turkey straight from a previous travel destination and started this tour with Fez Travel on our second day. During our first day we immediately noticed a difference in greeting and didn't quite feel as welcome as we did at our previous destination. The driver picked us up in a timely manner and despite not speaking any English we felt very welcomed by him. When our guide joined as later (picked up after us) he was also very welcoming!

The tour itself was highly educational! Learned a lot about Turkish history and culture. Our guide, Gorsuk Samir, is highly knowledgable and he always checked in to see how we were doing, which is greatly appreciated. I especially liked being given a break down and timeline of the day's activities in relation to a map. The mini geography & history lesson with the map was super interesting; especially enjoyed learning about the different regions of Turkey.

Overall truly enjoyed the tour!

Usually I travel solo with my own itinerary, but I realised that it’s not a good idea during this pandemic especially in Turkey. Fez Travel did a great job with their Turkey Classics tour. Our guide Cagman was very knowledgable about the history and geography of Turkey, with facts and figures, and well organised, at times he was open to healthy debates. This itinerary is really good if you enjoy history and being in place where it happened. We had to spend few hours from our valuable time in some commercial showrooms like carpet factory, leather shop, pottery shop, and jewellery shop. I was not into shopping, if you are there for shopping you may like it. Btw, it was interesting to see some demos like silk thread production. We missed Ankara due to the lockdown across the country on Sunday. I wish we had little more time in Cappadoccia. We had a well experienced driver and a comfortable van. Their office staff Canan was friendly, helpful and great service with timely response. Overall it was great experience and will recommend highly especially if you are first time in Turkey.

We just concluded a great vacation with family after being locked up for most part of 2 years due to the COVID pandemic.

We took the 7 day Classic tour and had a great experience. If you like road travel and ancient history- this is a must do. Each location was amazing. Our guide Cagman was engaging, had great knowledge and passion for the subject and locations and did a great job of never letting us get bored during the entire 7 day period. The driver Seyfi had a pleasant and comfortable driving style due to which we could cover the entire trip without feeling tired.

The kids loved Cappadocia the most. We loved the combination of historical sites with stops for some great traditional food along the way.

Thanks for a memorable holiday. Will definitely recommend Fez to anyone who wants to travel and visit Turkey.

The 7 day Turkey Classics Tour was perfect for us as we only had 8.5 days in the country. If you would like to see the main historical attractions this is a tour for you!

Our tour guide Gurksu did an amazing job clearly communicating at every stage of the tour. Giving us the history, significants and relevance to all the sites we visited, while not overloading us (which some guides tend to do). Very happily answered all questions and tried to assist us in any way he can. His knowledge and experience was quite evident throughout and set us all in the right mood.

Our driver, Yilmas, did an equally excellent job in keeping as on track and safe throughout the journey. The vehicle itself was very clean, comfy and with a sufficient amount of leg room.

Tips:
- Sit at the front/mid part of the van so you get the best view and less of the vehicle movements
- Ask your guide to help with ordering at the restaurants as some waiters know minimal english.
- The hot air ballon ride is a MUST.

Everything was AMAZING! From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the end of our tour we were well taken care of. The best experience and everything was very organized. On our tour we got to visit several places, but my favorite was Ephesus and everything we were able to see there. Our tour guide, Göksu Pamir, was very knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions. We unfortunately hit some snow storms during our tour and we had to make accommodations, but even the accommodations were handled super well and our driver did an amazing job of getting us to where we needed to be.
