My daughter and I booked a trip to Turkey (with only a month advance notice after we had a change in plans) through Ozden and Turkland travels on the advice of good friends who had traveled with him before. We were delighted with his detailed plans, including being met by a driver in new locations. We had an excellent day touring Istanbul with Ozden, and so enjoyed his sense of humor and knowledge about Turkish history, architecture and culture. As our friends had assured us, we also felt like Ozden was a great friend by the end of our trip. He was always available by email or cell phone if we had any questions.
We appreciated his near insistence that we go to Cappadoccia (I had not been that keen on it beforehand), It was magical!! We did the early morning balloon tour, which was breathtaking - wonderful photos! Take an SLR camera with 200 mm zoom if you can, which helps with the landscape as well as getting closeups of people.
I would love to go back to Turkey, and would definitely contact Ozden again for help with arrangements, knowing we now have a great friend in Istanbul.
