Me and my husband travelled independently to Cappadocia with True Blue Tour for 6 days.
Yilmaz and Ruta organized everything so good that nothing was left for us to do, except enjoying this fantastic trip!
Friendly people, excellent professionals, they show us the best face of Turkish hospitality.
Thank you True Blue Tour! You are definitely our travel agency in Turkey :-)

We booked a private tour with True Blue for July. This was a 5 day experience which all went like clockwork. We had several airport transfers which went so smoothly with both a person to meet us and a driver. Even when our plane was early, the person was there with our name on a sign. We has a day tour of Istanbul which was tailor made for us and a two day tour of Cappadochia which was amazing, plus transfers on the other days. The guides, drivers and the hotel were wonderful. I would highly recommend Cappadochia. The hotel was a cave hotel and we were upgraded to a large suite. We had asked for no shopping stops and lo and behold this was the first agency ever which listened to us regarding this request!! In fact, we did visit a local women's cooperative carpet store when we had a little spare time due to the fact that the underground city tour was shortened due to my claustrophobia. (We were given a choice of activities when this occurred.) The guides were very informed and gave us all the historical perspective and education that we could possibly need. We asked for short lunch breaks so that we could spend more time sightseeing and this was no problem. All in all True Blue was efficient, responding to emails very quickly, cost effective and provided outstanding tours and service. As a couple who travels several times a year, this agency was one of the best for tailor making an intinerary to fit our specific requests.

Hi philbill,
Thanks for the informative review. We're so glad that you had such a smooth experience with the details of your program. Private services certainly lend themselves to flawless execution and the sky is the limit as far as itinerary goes in a private program. We know that this type of program can become cost prohibitive for many travelers and so we appreciate your having mentioned cost in a positive light. We do what we can to provide the best experiences possible for everyone who inquires with TBT. All the best for your continuing world travels! Cheers, Eyup

True Blue Tours arranged a tailor made tour for us traveling all over Turkey. Everything ran like clockwork.The drivers were competent, accommodation excellent and the tour guides knowledgeable and professional.
It is when things go wrong that you learn who you are dealing with. Returning to Istanbul at 9 pm on the Friday of Anzac weekend we found that our hotel booking was only for the next day; this was the fault of the hotel. We phoned True Blue and Yilmas arrived within 30 minutes and miraculously arranged accommodation at a nearby hotel; helping us carry our luggage and only left when we were settled.
I can highly recommend this company.

Hi Hein P,
Thanks for the recommendation. It is fun for us to customize programs to suit our guests' many and varying preferences. Turkey has so much to offer that it is pretty much impossible to fit everything into one holiday. We enjoy to use correspondence in order to get to know our guests a bit and to discover what will be the most appropriate itinerary program to suit the individual or individuals concerned. We're glad to have had you as a part of our ANZAC commemoration group last April! Yilmaz really enjoyed the group and the excursion and he absolutely loves to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to assisting our guests in any way. Thanks again and hope to see you again, mate. Best, Eyup
