i went to Istanbul in dec 2011 for new years eve with a great friend and used riola for our private tours. we had an amazing time on our new years cruise that we booked through riola. the staff and experience were top notch and the value was incredible. i will def use them for a summer trip to turkey in the future as my trip was greatly enhanced by the knowledge and ease that riola provided. well done on all accounts!!!

My brother and I travelled to Istanbul, Turkey for the first time not knowing what to expect. My friend went and found Riola Travel Agency when she was over there. Ugur the owner is who they met and they loved him from the start. They recommended I go through the agency for all my travel plans. This was the best decision I made. My brother and I travelled all through Europe 25 day but had our best experience in Turkey. Ugur was the one who planned everything from our airport transfers, our hotel, guided travel plans and flights to other parts of Turkey, such as Cappadoccia, and Ephesus. These were both amazing experiences with a hot air balloon tour. The agency was so thorough and organized, it was seamless, even when traveling to other parts of Turkey we just had to be ready at the time they said to be ready (follow our itinerary) and we were picked up in each place and taken to the right people we felt really safe and everyone was in such great communication with eachother. The people over there are very hospitable, the city is very modern, and the outside cities are very interesting. Riola Travel Agent Ugur exceeded my expectations for great travel planning. This agency's staff is great at what they do and they will help you with anything, and make you feel at home, I cant image not using them to get to all your favorite places in Turkey. Also they have great guides, one who's name we cannot pronounce so they have us call him Mr. G. he knows english and is very knowlegable about all the cities history and a fun and comfortable person to spend the whole day with.
Out of all places travelled we both want to return to Turkey, and I will recommend that everyone I know go to the Agency for everything you need, even day tours or other plans around different parts of Turkey they will organize it all.
I wish I could give them 6 stars!

I wanted an epic turkey adventure, but not a regular tour. I wanted to visit specific cities and do specific things. So i contacted several agencies, riola is the only one that put together a plan for me. Very good in theory, execution was to be seen. The result? 6 cities, white water rafting, skydiving, paragliding, hot air balloon, hotels, pick ups, buses, flights and tours all flawlessly executed! What a fantastic trip they planned and delivered over the past 12 days! Most importantly, the riola team did it like family and friends, not travel agents. Fantastic people offering a fantastic experience. Highly highly recommended. Thanks guys, you are epic!

Spent two weeks in the care of Riola back in August 2012 - very impressed. Had Riola reccomended to me by a friend in Brisbane, very glad I used their services in the end. Located close to the Sirkeci tram stop, Ugur takes his time planning a high quality trip (either in Istanbul or surrounds) according to your budget and taste. Ugur arranged a high quality trip through Cappadocia and Pamukkale tailored to our love of REAL cultural experiences. Good on you Ugur, you are a credit to the industry. Cheers mate
