“Amazing just Amazing First class S E R V I C E”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We contacted the Hotel's front desk for a last minute trip and we were lucky enough to get in contact with Uğur. He came to our hotel and gave us our options considering the short notice and limited time we had left. In less than 24 hours he arranged a FIRST class trip that included, airport transfers, airfare, and private sightseeing. Everything was as planned. No delays, no glitches, no mishaps. We were very surprised with the level of professionalism from the time we scheduled the tour to the time it ended. We are looking forward to visiting Turkey again and to have RİOLA travel book our trip. You are the best!! Keep up the good work.

“Awesome!! Made my trip to Istanbul worthwhile!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I booked my travel with the General manager Ugur Balçak owner of Riola Private Daily Tours from Istanbul. Ugur met me the first day, built my itinerary and selected the world's best personal tour guide Elif Gül Yavuzer...Elif was knowledgeable on Turkish culture, the Muslim religion and provided me with information you just cannot read in a book. I am glad Ugur selected Elif to be my guide and I owe her a lot for walking 8 hours in Istanbul with shoes that had a heel...AWESOME sums it up!

“The best tour company in Turkey”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

I visited Istanbul in August and booked my travel with Ugur Balçak owner of Riola Private Daily Tours from Istanbul to Goreme (Cappadocia) staying two days then onto Side. Along with this Ugur also booked a ballon flight and tours while in Goreme for both days.
With Ugur's professionalism, knowledge, kindness and his good connections that he has obviously has through out Turkey made my trip an amazing one.
I had the best time and it was way above my expectations with Ugur in contact with me during my journey to make sure I was okay and that every thing was going well....what fabulous service!
I would not hesitate to refer Ugur and his wonderful company.....in fact I have recommended two different friends who traveled to Turkey in the past few months who both booked every thing on their stay in Turkey with Ugur and they too have come home raving about their wonderful experience of booking with Riola Private Daily Tours.

We were promised personal, expert service, but we never anticipated SUCH attention, expertise, care AND at such a reasonable price! We wanted a few days' tour from Istanbul to Ephesus and Pergamum - we got MUCH more!!
The Tour Operator, Ugur Balcak, personally met us at our hotel, at our convenience, to plan our trip out of Istanbul. Over coffee, he listened carefully to what we wanted, offered suggestions, and then, very quickly, came back with a complete, detailed, first class tour at a VERY GOOD PRICE (we DID compare prices beforehand). From the time we left, until the time we returned to our hotel, we were PERSONALLY met with guides, tour experts, concierges, hotel management, housekeeping, and drivers. It was as if we had a personal guide holding our hands everywhere we went and as needed. We felt like KINGS! BRAVO to Ugur and his Riola Tours. WE CANNOT RECOMMEND HIS SERVICE MORE HIGHLY and will certainly be using him on our next trip to Turkey. BRAVO!!!!
