          A Serene Sunset Stroll
          The sound of the waves crashing against the shore was soothing, creating a sense of tranquility and calmness in the air. The sun was setting in the distance, casting a warm golden glow over the beach and painting the sky in shades of pink and orange. As the family walked along the sandy shore, they couldn't help but feel at peace in the presence of such breathtaking beauty. The gentle breeze played with their hair, and the soft sand beneath their feet added to the overall feeling of relaxation. It was a moment of pure bliss, and they were grateful to be able to experience such a wonderful evening by the ocean.

          Discovering Ephesus' Mysterious Ancient Ruins
          The ancient ruins of Ephesus were truly awe-inspiring, with each column and structure telling a story of a bygone era. Nafia's passion for the history of the site was evident in her detailed explanations and enthusiastic storytelling. As we walked through the ancient streets, it felt as though we had been transported back in time. The driver's friendly demeanor and smooth driving made the experience even more enjoyable. I couldn't wait to share this incredible experience with my friends and family, knowing they would be just as amazed as I was.

          Awesome Tour with Neopolis Travel
          In April we did a 8 Days 7 Nights -Istanbul - Cappadocia - Ephesus - Pamukkale PRIVATE Tour organized by Neopolis Travels. We visited with Family and Friends. On our first Day in Istanbul, our Guide took us to Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia followed by Topkapi Palace, Hippodrome, the Obelisks and the Basilica Cistern. The Journey continued on the Second Day with Bosphorous Tour over the Bosphorous river covering the Golden Horn, Rumeli Hisari and ending with Dolmabahce Palace. Our Guide also took us to the wall while driving across it. We can see the beauty of the Byzantine Empire. One Day-3 and 4 we spent in Cappadocia tour starting with Devrent Valley with its eye catching, unique chimneys, Pasabag (Monk’s Valley), fascinating Avanos, the beauteous valley of Goreme and Open Air museum where the remains of churches and early Christian dwellings, hewn from the soft rocks and stones, dating back thousands of years, are still standing. Red and Rose Valley where the colour of rocks changing throughout the day and little hiking through the Gulludere Valley. In old Greek Cavusin Village we visited the houses and churches of the Cristian clergymen such as Saint John the Baptist and Nicophoras Phocas. Afterwards, we went to a city rich in historical culture and natural beauties,Kaymakli (or Ozkonak),and visit the underground city where the early Christians sought refuge. Our last destination is a natural castle at Ortahisar then Uçhisar Castle, the highest point of the Cappadocia. We had a great panoramic view of Cappadocia and the fairy chimneys. Pigeon Valley offers a nice view over Uchisar Castle and it has pigeons still living in pigeon houses. The last visit to Three Beauties Valley. Our Balloon ride got Cancelled due to Bad whether and that is only set back we had in the trip. On day 5, we drove to Izmir and the full day was spent visiting Ephesus - The Temple of Artemis - The House of Virgin Mary. After Ephesus we travelled to Kusadasi for overnight stay. On Day 6, we drove to Pamukkale to visit the Calcium spring terraces, Hierapolis museum, Hierapolis Theatre, Roman Bath, and Temple of Apollo, Cleopatra hot spring thermal pool. We stayed in cave hotel in Cappadocia and a beautiful Boutique hotel in Kusadasi. The experience is awesome. My special thanks to Meltem Yuruk for organizing the perfect tour for us.

          Great travel planner for Turkey
          NeopolisTravel and agent Sybil Alyena Dimer were absolutely the best.! We were coming back from Safari in Botswana and decided on a 5 day stopover in Istanbul. We did some basic research and looked on-line for a personalized tour to be put together. Sibel was extraordinary. After our on line inquiry she contacted us in California immediately. We communicated for 3 days and she put out options leading to a fabulous trip . She arranged every pick up ,hotel, guides. planes, and balloon tide. It was all seamlessly perfect. Sibel communicated daily to be sure that everything was working. All we did was enjoy an amazing brief trip to Istanbul and Coppadocia. It could not have been better. We will be back for a longer trip with Sibel’s help! And a special shout out to the wonderful Gitz Bosphorus Hotel on Taskim Square

          The best tour experience
          I don't usually do tours as I like to go on my own, but this time I didn't know how to get to Cappadocia. This is a best tour experience I ever had! Sibel was absolutely amazing at communicating, kept me updated of every detail, it was affordable and an absolutely amazing experience! Highly recommend using this company for your travel!

          Wonderful Experience
          AMAZING, amazing, amazing!!! We had the most wonderful guide helping us out! Her name is DIDEM UNDAL and you MUST work with her! Her pride of Turkey; country, food, culture, etc, is unparalleled! I cannot fully describe our experience with her as words do not do her enough service. She is an absolutely wonderful woman with fantastic knowledge and a beautiful demeanor! Our days with her were spent with great joy! She made our days in Istambul wonderful. I strongly recommend DIDEM UNDAL. You will be very happy with her guidance!

          Incredible Guides
          Ceylal and Serhat were MORE than amazing guides! They were friends and TRUE friends at that. They took their work seriously and although Ceylal was the lead, Serhat wasn't very far behind. They took us to show us their country and introduced us to Turkish culture. They were kind and funny and serious. The most amazing part of it all is that they took the time to be present for our needs and wants. We shared a table and broke bread together. My wife laughed and enjoyed her birthday like nobody has. Ceylal and Serhat were not only well versed in cultural and historic facts, they were also very kind and welcoming to us. The perfect hosts and guides for this kind of adventure. We consider them friends. They made our trip absolutely amazing. Ceylal and Serhat are amazing people!

          Turkey During Thanksgiving
          Meltem from Neopolis organized my entire Turkey experience. I didn’t select a specific tour because she customized it based on my interests and the number of days we had. We visited Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Ephesus. She provided the itinerary which included domestic flights and transfers from hotels to airports and vice versa. Everything went smoothly and Meltem contacted me throughout, informing me about the pickup times and so on. Almost all of the rides, except Cappadocia, were in private comfortable vans. Only Cappadocia was a small group tour. The Istanbul and Ephesus tours were private. Istanbul was a walking tour which makes sense because all the sights are around the city center. Our hotel was walking distance from Hagia Sophia mosque and there are restaurants all around. All the tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Breakfast and lunch were included. All in all it was a great experience and very well organized. Turkey is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time! Thank you Meltem for organizing this amazing experience!

          Wonderful Experience!
          We had a terrific experience with Neopolis Travel! From the very beginning, Meltem, was a phenomenal customer service representative. She helped us to develop our perfect two week itinerary, and included all of the sites that we were interested in seeing. She was always available and quick to respond. All of our transfers and local transportation needs were handled quickly, with professional drivers and great tour guides. We had one instance of a local tour bus transfer being uncomfortable, but that was not the fault of the agency. I would highly recommend using Neopolis and specifically having Meltem as your tour curator.

          USE Neopolis Travel - AMAZING Experience from start to finish!
          Neopolis Travel made our trip to Ephesus and the surrounding area SO SPECIAL. They also provided our airport transfers. Our tour guide Nafia was incredible - we learned SO much about the House of Mary (the aura at this special spot is palpable), Ephesus (wow, incredible place with mind blowing history that definitely rivals Rome ruins) and the other sites we visited. We went to an amazing traditional Turkish lunch - included in our tour - connected to the rug weaving tour. The overview of how the gorgeous works of art (rugs) are made and how they farm the silk for the silk rugs was soooooooo interesting & everyone from the person who greeted us to the big boss and manager there were so fun, humorous, kind and friendly. We’ll never question why these rugs are expensive - some of them take up to a year of meticulous labor. We purchased a rug for our 25th anniversary and we’re glad to be supporting the local artisans, as it is a lost art & the government is subsidizes these rug makers who are passing down this amazing craft for future generations. A HUGE THANK YOU to Meltem who provided quick, organized responses & confirmations, as well as answered all of our questions so kindly. We would have used this travel agency for our entire trip, had we known they provided services in other areas in Turkey. Next time we’ll know! Many thanks!
