Absolutely brilliant from first email contact to final farwell. A group of 4 of us(two couples) went on a 5 day private tour starting from Istanbul and heading to Gallipoli and then south to the ancient Roman ruins. The accommodation, meals and driver were fantastic. This was a personalised tour, with a guide for each of the areas we visited. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We were treated like family and will certainly be returning to Turkey, and to Encounter Tours. Thanks heaps Chevy and your team.

We travelled to Italy and Greece booking via Encounter Tours. We were skeptical at first booking from Toronto, but Chevy was very helpful and arranged a great 13 day trip. Just a word of caution, this is not your regular group tour, rather a contract tour. At times we were just the two of us and sometimes joined large groups and at other times joined a couple of other people. The drivers were punctual, guides were extremely knowledegable and the hotels good. I would recommend them.

I returned home yesterday after my wonderful 2-week Turkey adventure.The amazing variety, contrasts, and differences of all the sights and locations of this trip were matched only by the warmth, generosity, and hospitality of the Turkish people.It was a true travel delight!

I have nothing but praise for the well-coordinated and admirable manner that the staff and contacts enabled me to enjoy Turkey with a minimum of hassle and worry. All the pick-ups were punctual, polite, and helpful.

We are a Mexican family of three members. We booked a tour with this company for not very touristic places (except for Cappadocia) and from the booking process the service was warm and friendly. We travelled through Anatolia after staying two days in Cappadocia, with hot air balloon ride included; we drove by Adyaman, stayed in Kahta, in a hotel on the top of a mountain with wonderful views of the Taurus mountains; went to Mount Nemrut to watch the sunrise; then Sanliurfa, Harran and Diyarbakir. All the accommodation was excellent from Ürgüp, in Cappadocia, till Diyarbakir. The guides were professional and friendly, the vehicles comfortable and the places chosen for lunches and dinners were very good examples of delicious Turkish gastronomy. Chevy answered all of our questions and solved every inquiry we made from the beginning. Despite a nightmarish situation at Diyarbakir airport, Encounter tours staff helped us to solve it, and we are very thankful for that. In sum, this was an unforgettable trip in Southern Turkey and Anatolia, away from crowds of turists, which allowed us to see a more realistic picture of Turkey. I strongly recommend this agency for its kindness, efficiency and good price.

My young daughter and I booked a nearly 3 week vacation of Turkey and Greece with Encounter Tours. It was an amazing eye opening wonderfully soul nourishing (not to mention stomach fulfilling) trip we both had. Turkey and Greece are such treasure troves of history, culture and so on - it was impossible to cover all in such a short time frame. Istanbul, Ephesus, Cappadocia and Athens were such amazing experiences. Thankfully we were in Encounter Tours' good hands and they did a really remarkable job pulling the trip together. I would heartily recommend them. My friend used them and recommended me to try them out. I am very glad I did and in doing so, made some amazing new friends! Thank you Gail and Yalchin and Tulcan (in Cappadocia)!! We will be back!
