Our whole plan placed us in sirince which was out of the normal options (Selçuk, izmir or Kusadasi) but we were given pickup and drop off in the same price. Our guide Melih was excellent and very engaging. He was well versed in the history of the sites he was showing us. He used to prepare us well before a site, letting us know of the history beforehand. He also guided us well on the do's and don'ts before a site. Guided us to an excellent lunch place and finally took us to a leather shop in town which wasn't included. The booking process was smooth as well and we paid after the trip. Overall 100 outta 100 from us. We'd recommend them to everyone. What we covered : House is virgin Mary Temple of Artemis Terrace houses Basilica of St. John Ephesus city Ephesus Archaeological Museum…

We purchased a 6-night tour of Turkey through Curio Travel on a complete whim, and honestly it was the greatest decision we ever made. Given the political climate and how it is portrayed in the Australian media we were quite nervous as 2 girls visiting the country, but from the first minute we stepped out of Ataturk Airport and met our wonderful guide Melic we knew we were in safe hands. Everything was of the highest standard, from accommodation, transfers, knowledge and attractions. We kept looking at each other the entire time and just wondering how did we get so lucky to have stumbled upon this gem of a tour. All sightseeing was very well organised and educational, while still allowing enough time to relax on our holiday - even allowing for a half-day relaxing by the pool in Cappadocia! Our accommodation surpassed our wildest imaginations, particularly in Cappadocia at the Cave Hotel. We have not stopped raving about this tour since we returned to Australia and would highly recommend Curio Travel to anyone passing through or visiting Turkey. We know we will be using them again!…

In august 2017 during our trip to Zanzibar we had to spend 7 hours in Istanbul between flights. So we decided to visit the Topkapı Palace Museum. The transfer was great. Our guide Serkan, nice and knowledgeable person, told us a lot of interesting things about Istanbul during the ride and advised different interesting places around the museum. In the end he made sure that we came back in time to airport. Highly recommended (Serkan is best guide ever)!…
