“First time in Turkey (hopefully, not the last)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

It was a great choice in choosing Medhills Travel to arrange our tours in Turkey - Cenan Unusoglu was very helpful and responsive to any questions put forward. He even went as far as checking on us 3 times while there to ensure that everything was running smoothly.

We arrived in Instanbul on September 24th and left on October 2nd, 2012. Our hotel was situated in the the Sultanahamet area - within walking distance of all the major sites (Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hippodrome, Underground Cisterns, Grand Bazaar, to name a few). As soon as we arrived, we were out door and exploring the area. Staff at Hotel Esans were truly friendly and helpful as were others in Cappadocia (Hotel Capadoccia Palace).

Our highlight of the trip was the hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia (Urgup Balloons) - truly awesome. At one point we went as high as 1,010 meters.

The food was fabulous everywhere we dined (arranged by the tour or those restaurants we found on our own)!

I had recommended Medhills travel to a friend even before departing for Turkey and will certainly recommend them again to others who plan on visiting Turkey!

““ Cruising theTurkish Coast ””
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

MedHills Travel/ Cenan Yunusoglu

We recently (August 11-18th, 2012) decided to charter a Gulet to cruise the Turkish Coast. We contacted many different charter companies in both the U.S. and in Turkey to insure that we had a seamless trip and a great boat. After much deliberation, we selected Cenan Yunusoglu at MedHills Travel as our charter agent. He did a terrific job! He provided us numerous choices of gulets in different price ranges and worked very hard to fit us with the right boat and crew at a very fair price. He was honest about the boats, the itinerary and the provisioning. He matched us with a near-perfect 80 foot Gulet, Biliz, that made for an exceptional adventure/ trip. He also was able to arrange ground transportation from the airport to the marina and at the end of the journey from the marina to Bodrum.

We plan on using Cenan again, next summer, to either charter in Greece or Croatia. Of all the charter agents we contacted, he was the best and by far, the most honest and forthright.

“Top notch service - Med Hills Travel did a brilliant job!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

My family doesn't see each other that regularly these days - my parents live in Canada, and my sister and I live in the UK. We decided this year to meet in Turkey, and tour around for two weeks. My parents and sister had never been to Turkey before, and wanted to make sure they got the most out of our trip as was possible. I work in the adventure travel industry and know the amount of work that goes into planning a great itinerary to make the holiday of a lifetime, and Med Hills Travel exceeded every aspect of our trip.

Our family was introduced to Med Hills by a family friend, and from the start Cenan and his colleagues provided us with nothing but superb and personalized service. There were specific places we wanted to visit, and Cenan put together an amazing itinerary that included everything we wanted plus some things we didn't even know we wanted!

From the moment we arrived in Istanbul until the very last day, everything was far beyond what we ever expected. The hotels that Med Hills chose for us, the private tours that were organized, the transportation and drivers that took us around Turkey - everything was top notch. Cenan's colleague AJ in Istanbul worked tirelessly to ensure we were completely taken care of at all times, and everyone we met along the way was incredibly friendly and very welcoming.

Personalized service from a great company, fantastic tours and great hotels in an amazing country - what more could you ask for? Well, how about excellent value for money! Our trip encompassed an incredible amount, including three internal flights, and I know that the price we were quoted was extremely fair and excellent value.

As I mentioned, I work in the adventure travel industry. I know exactly what goes into creating custom trips, and what Cenan and Med Hills Travel did for our family was far beyond anything we could have ever expected. They turned a family holiday into a dream trip of a lifetime for us, and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Med Hills Travel to anybody looking to have their own dream trip of a lifetime created for them!!

Dear Laas Family,

Thank you very much for your kind words and your review. We are so happy to hear that we turned this trip into an amazing experience for you, rather than a package tour.

I look forward to hear from you again, hopefully we take you to Greece this time!

Have a wonderful Autumn.

“First time with Medhills and Cenan an excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Thanks to Cenan and his staff for a wonderful holiday experience in Turkey...

We congratulate you on a job very well done as you executed with excellence in all counts-from the choice of hotels, tour packages and all around excellent customer service. We were just delighted and certainly recommended your services to other fellow travelers along the way thru Turkey.

To be exact, we particularly like your modular holiday model with flexible arrival and departure dates making it a bit more personal.

We are aware that you also specialize in tour packages to Greece and Greek Islands and we will certainly contact you when such time comes.

“First time we have ever used a touring company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I just returned from two weeks in Turkey--one week with Med Hills travel and one week in Istanbul on our own. We have travelled quite extensively for business and pleasure but always make our own arrangements. This was our first experience with a touring company. We could not be more pleased with the thought and attention to detail that Cenan and his team displayed. We are now convinced that for much of our future travel flexible touring is the only way to go. It is just the right combination of arranged tours and time on your own. We especially liked the opportunity to explore on our own for dinner. The guides were good and the vehicles and drivers were equally good. The choice of hotels was excellent.

As one who firmly believes that travel should be on one's stomach, I can attest to the fact that everywhere we went the food was delicious. It was very evident that the company was well known to the hotel staff and they went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We met some wonderful fellow travellers along the way and the mix was different at each stop. We are already planning our next trip to Greece and will use Med Hiils Travel again.
