Turkiye, what a surprise!
The food, the archeological sites, the balloon ride were all experiences that I had with Serendipity tours!
The bonus was our tour guide Veysel! You felt you just didn’t have a tour guide, but a friend as well. He made sure your accommodations were suitable, that you had lots of water during the day, and helped arrange activities outside of the tour, like a wine tasting. His knowledge of history, folklore, and his sense of humor, made for a very good trip. Thank you, Veysel!

I cannot praise highly enough the way I was looked after on this tour. The guide was exceptionally well-versed in the history of Turkey and his command of English was exemplary. He was helpful above and beyond the call of duty and I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone who is interested in archaeology and ancient history. I will be taking this tour again in a year or two because I enjoyed it so much.

Myself and David have just finished a marvellous tour of Istanbul and Western Turkey ending up in Cappadocia and Istanbul. It was winter and so we had a lot of luck with the weather. We were in the safe and considerate hands of our tour guide Fazli and the ever- capable driver, Mr Fezmi. Fazli was a fountain of knowledge and we gained a great insight into contemporary and ancient Turkey. At all times we knew we were in good hands and had an amazing experience. I left my passport behind in one of the hotels and Fazli solved the problem without blinking. The outcome could have been so much different. We had great travel partners on this small snow- capped tour and could not have been luckier. We really recommend this way of seeing and learning about Turkey.

We took a 3 week personalised tour around Turkey with Serendipity Tours. The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Fazli, is extremely well informed and shares his knowledge freely. He's also extremely caring, ensuring a high level of customer service all the way. He will ensure you get to see all the main sights but he will work hard to help you avoid queues where possible. He works out what you like and tailors the tour accordingly. We put the itinerary together over email. He was very efficient and very open to my suggestions of places to go and hotels to stay. It was a very collaborative process and the end result was excellent. We travelled around in a large Mercedes van which was very comfortable. Our driver, Mr Fevzi, was also very accommodating and patient. We've taken many tours around the world and this would have to be one of the best. We did price out several options in Turkey and this was one of the better priced options. We totally recommend travelling with Serendipity Tours.

My husband and I did a 14-day private tour. From the first time we contacted Serendipity until the moment we said our farewells at the airport, we were well taken care of. Fazli made sure we saw the best of the best, and curated his tour based on our taste and interest. Do not hesitate! Choose Serendipity--you will have the experience of a lifetime.

Tour guide extraordinaire - Veysel - to sum up as the 'Indiana Jones' of the 21st century. Very informative and definitely a must see adventure of Turkey, its beauty of ancient history, archeology and its charming people. Such a wonderful memorable and enjoyable distinctive itinerary. Each destination was stunning and breathtaking. Highly recommend as TOP of any bucket list. Would go again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I booked this tour without any real expectations. From the moment we booked the tour, our guide Fazli, communicated with us via e-mail about our arrival flight and interests. Upon arrival to Turkey, Fazli was at the airport waiting for us. He called the driver and we were immediately picked up in a Mercedes Benz 10 passenger vehicle. We were taken to the hotel, Fazli indicated points of interest to have dinner and let us know the time he would pick us up from the hotel the following morning for the Blue Mosque tour. Fazli and the driver were always punctual with their pick up times. Fazli was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and desires. Fazli was great about indicating if we should wear tennis shoes or how much walking we would be doing. In the vehicle he always had cold water and made sure we took some on our walking tours. Fazli was flexible with the program as my husband wanted to visit the Ataturk Olympic Stadium and Fazli made it possible. My husband was beyond happy! If anyone is even minimally considering visiting Turkey, please do so! You will not regret it. The people are so friendly, the food is amazing and Fazli the tour guide is very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The tour we booked included breakfast, lunch and dinner in the price. It was so nice to have Fazli recommend the foods we should try because we would always visit authentic Turkish restaurants (i.e. the restaurants the locals visit). Every single dish we tried we loved, but our absolute favorites were the pides (pizzas). Visiting Capadoccia was a bucket list item and spending the night in a cave was a once in a lifetime experience. From the beginning I expressed to Fazli my desire to book the hot air balloon ride and we were able to fly in one because he did the reservations in advance. We have amazing memories from this trip. Upon arrival to the U.S. we have recommended Turkey and Serendipity Tours to all of our friends. Fazli will take care of our friends and we know they will have an amazing time. You will not regret booking this tour. Thank you so much to Fazli for an amazing time, as we said before, we will return soon to Turkey because we still have so much to explore.

Absolutely the only way to see and experience Turkey. From the time we landed in Istanbul until the last day in Gaziantep (on our way back to Istanbul via flight the next day), Veysel, our tour guide, and Favezi, our driver, took care of us and treated us like family. Veysel is very informative of Turkey and its culture and history. He made sure we experienced Turkey the way it should be: trying different dishes, desserts, shopping, sights, etc. We’ve been to Turkey before but this was a better way to see the country. There were 4 of us on the tour so we were very comfortable during our trips in the van. Cold water was always available. We ate in so many restaurants and even though the menu was sometimes the same, it was still good to taste the different variations of meatballs, chicken kabob, and baklava! The hotels were all different with the highlight being the cave hotel in Cappadocia. The Turks are friendly towards the tourists and we felt safe the whole time. Veysel has been doing this tour for a long time that it seemed like everywhere we went, everyone knew him personally. We highly recommend this tour. It has been a pleasurable 2 weeks.

Every day was an amazing experience! The trip could not have been any better considering the COVID restrictions, it in fact made what we did do that much better as there were NO crowds. We were the only ones at some sites and if it was "crowded" it was never inconvenient. Fazli was full of information. I felt I was in competent hands at all time. He was soooo delightful. I highly recommend his tour!

I was so skeptical to book a tour as I’m not a package trip kinda person but since Turkey is so huge plus Covid situations, I thought to go with a tour company for my first trip to this beautiful country. And what a great decision😁! I’m so glad that I found serendipity tours because I don’t think any other tour company could give you the kind of hospitality that I received from Fazli the tour guide/owner/ who became my friend forever as well. He keeps the group small so you won’t get that “lost in the crowd” kinda feel. I had a lot of questions before the trip and Fazli was so prompt to respond without delays. Hotels were pretty good(except the one in Istanbul. Too cramped for a 4* standards ). Very knowledgeable and ready to modify/customize the trip as per your needs even while you’re already in the trip. That’s very rare and I was so happy to see that kinda service. Mr Fazi(the driver) drove us all around the Turkey in his comfortable Mercedes Van without any hiccups. Very safe driving! Traveling in covid era is tricky but since they’ve been following up all of the protocols, I felt really good and safe throughout the trip. And the places that we visited..Outstanding!
I’m planning to explore another side of Turkey soon and without any second thoughts will book it again with Fazli. See ya soon guys!😁
