We were recommended Travel Atelier and were not disappointed. Erkan was our consultant and within 48 hours of contacting him were had our trip organised and paid for,all via the Internet . Erkan was extremely efficient and obliging and whilst travelling in Turkey he assisted us with changes we wished to make, adding additional travel arrangements and at short notice assisting friends who required help with their travel arrangements. We had an amazing trip in Turkey all thanks to recommendations by Erkan. We met Erkan and Murat in Nevsehir and were inspired by their enthusiasm for the travel industry and for the products they were selling. I. Would highly recommend the company to anyone travelling to Turkey. You will not be disappointed.

Our group of 4 did the private Classical Cappadocia tour. We were picked up in a very comfortable van. Inside there was a small refrigerator filled with snacks and lots of water, which came in handy since it was close to 95 F that day. Our guide spoke good english and gave us a very detailed tour. Our tour included lunch at a nice restaurant where they were able to accommodate the fact that we were all vegetarian.

Overall a well organized and comfortable tour. Definitely worth the money to do a private tour.

We knew we wanted to go to Turkey for our honeymoon, but since we were planning a wedding I couldn't imagine planning a 3 week trip as well. I emailed Travel Atelier and our contact and operator there, Erkan, was fabulous. He took care of absolutely everything and made sure we saw everything we were interested in. And he was charming and kind to boots! (Also planning his own wedding and honeymoon!) Everywhere we went we were treated so well- upgrades in hotels, wine, champagne, fruit as gifts for our honeymoon in each location. One night we went to dinner at Ziggy's in Cappadoccia and the owner, hearing it was our honeymoon, brought us a gift of an evil eye to put up in our home. Throughout the trip we felt welcomed, safe and taken care of. The vans were clean and cool and the driver in Cappadoccia, Irchan (sp?), was especially kind and warm and we highly recommend to anyone traveling to Cappadoccia to recommend him as your driver! On the night of our arrival Erkan made sure we were welcomed warmly by his colleague Alkan, who we adored. We also had a lovely guide there- Ismael, who we enjoyed.
Stay at Argos in Cappadoccia! It is breathtaking and the staff are lovely. In Istanbul stay at TomTom Sites- fabulous hotel in a great and convenient neighborhood with loads of restaurants and bars and shopping (Beyoglu).
Thank you travel atelier for an unforgettable and FABULOUS trip. Come visit us in Brooklyn.,

Let me start by thanking Alkan, Yasin, Ismail and Mr. Murat. Alkan was my first contact in March of this year. We went back and forth via email and they helped me build a magical vacation. They made all the changes i wanted and made some great suggestions. Also the other thing i liked that they trusted us as I paid 30% initially and paid the rest 70% when I reached Cappadoccia ( middle part of my trip). We had a mix age group from 15 yrs to 84 yrs of age and they were able to meet the special needs for my 84 year old father. Also they made my sisters 50th Birth day very special. From the time we got picked up at the airport in a till we left turkey 11 days later our trip was magical. Most of the staff they picked to take care of us starting with Mr. Nizamuddin the driver were very polite, always on time and very knowledgeable about the history and sites. Our tour guides Mr Suleiman and Mr Yasin thank you for all the information you shared and the time you took with us.They were willing to make any changes and allowed us to do it at our pace. On day one when Mr. Suleiman realized that walking tour was not possible because of the age of my father they arranged a van and we had no problems and could take our dad with us. They arranged the best Bosporus cruise on a private yacht and the Balloon trip with Captain David. We were flying between cities and they did all our check in and sent us the boarding passes. Although Alkan was on vacation he checked in with me everyday. Finally i would like to thank Mr Murat, ( you have great people that work for you). If we do go back to Turkey again I will only use them to book my travels. Thank you sooooooooo much.

My friend contacted Travel Atelier to help plan our short 7-day trip to Turkey since we were overwhelmed with things to do, places to see. Travel Atelier was the only travel company that took our list of cities & prepared a private tour package fit for 2 princesses. We had our own private Mercedes minivans at every city, our guides they chose for us very extremely knowledgeable in the local areas & friendly. It was very relaxed at our own pace. And when we had a little incident of my friend spraining her foot on one of the tours, we got all the possible attention from our local guide Esra, hospital visits, and even a brand new wheel chair ready & waiting when we landed in Istanbul so we didnt have to cancel our walking tour of the city. We must say, we walked in acquaintances & we left their office as friends. Thank you Asli for taking care of us all through our stay in Turkey & look forward the other plans you have suggested for our next visit to Turkey!
