“Excellent experience”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We Searched Chora travel through tripadvisor. They were very prompt with e mails and flexible to accommodate our schedule. We dealt with Yusuf Ozen. The hotel in Istanbul SultanAhmed was reasonable 3-4 stars and the staff were excellent (Gulhane Park Hotel). We did Old city tour and flew to Cappodicia and stayed through Chora with Dervish Cave hotel. We did the Hot air balloon (it is a must if you visit Cappodicia!). Haron the guide in Cappodicia was amazing.

Any changes were accommodated and will arrange to travel with them in the future for sure.

“Chora Travel/Istanbul Daily Tours”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

This company is fantastic to deal with both Nejo and /Yusuf (Owners) were amazing their customer service was outstanding nothing was too much trouble from the first day I contacted Nejo he answered all my emails within a few hours. We arranged our week's private tour through Nejo with a private car/English speaking driver (Engin who is Nejo's brother brilliant company so considerate and again his customer service was excellent ( he treated us like a member of his own family for the week) and each day a different English speaking guide. The cost was half the price to what a well known travel agency in Australia had quoted us for the week. From the moment we were picked up at Istanbul airport arriving at Tom Tom Suites Istanbul (fantastic hotel) our walking tour of Istanbul (very tiring day but one NOT to be missed) then we drove to Gallipolli/Anzac Cove/Lone PIne (NOT TO BE MISSED) very serine and emotional day. Koray was our guide for this day he was excellent and very informative (All our guides are professional teachers even Engin our driver). We stayed at Grand Anzac Hotel Cannakale (OK for 1 night stay central to everything) then we drove the following day with our guide Kenan to Troy then onto the ancient city of Pergamon, then onto Kusadasi where we stayed at the Hotel Charisma De Luxe (excellent hotel) then we drove onto Ephesus (on the whole this was an excellent trip (although a very tiring one - because you will be doing a lot of walking!!) - I would advise that you make room for at least 1 day of rest to recuperate during your trip) Pamukkale was amazing our guide here was Birol so knowledable and good company here we stayed at the Melrose Hotel very nice and comfortable. On the whole the trip was amazing and I can't thank Nejo and Engin enough for making it so enjoyable we finished up at Ovacik . Poor Engin then had to drive all the way back to Istanbul (Hope you got home safely Engin). I would certainly recommend this company to everyone as I said before their Customer Service was out of this world the best we have received in many years. WELL DONE Nejo & Yusuf regards Caroline & Gar

“Felt rushed”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We used Chora for our trip to Cappadocia. We weren't originally planning on going to Cappadocia, but we made a last minute decision and, after some quick research, decided that Chora would be the best bet to help us execute our plan. It is a stunning region and we are thankful to the company for assisting us in getting there. That being said, we could have used more time at a few of the sights. Part of this is our fault as we wanted to see as much as possible, but we now wish that we had been encouraged to do less. The guiding service could have felt a bit more authentic - allowing us to relax and enjoy the experience more than we were ultimately able to.

“Excellent Services Provided”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

My 3-day trip to Cappadocia (2 days) and Pamukkale (1 day) for one person was a last-minute decision which has been suggested and planned by Chora Travel. The charge was a bit on the high end but I was very satisfied with the services provided. Chora Travel gave very quick response to my enquiry, emailed me all the vouches for domestic flights, hotels, and tours. I was particularly satisfied with the Tour Guide provided by Shah Mat Travel for Cappadocia Tour because it was one-on-one service for my first day arrival (half day tour at Cappadocia). The arrangement for one night at Cave Hotel Room of Cappadocia did provide good experience. The only suggestion for improvement of the one-day Pamukkale Tour provided by Mislina Travel is to arrange a hotel that provides bathroom facility for non-overnight guest. Because I travelled from Cappadocia by 10-hour night bus, it means I arrived at Pamukkale by 6 am. I was picked up at bus station and was transferred to a local hotel to have a rest at the hotel lobby and to wait for day tour starting at 9:30 am, completing at 4 pm. However, no bathroom facility was provided by the local hotel. It will be good to be able to take a shower particularly after the day tour.
