We recently returned from a three-week tour of Turkey with Argeus Travel. Two weeks was devoted to their Classical Turkey Tour, and we added time in Istanbul and in Cappadocia, also with their guide. This was undoubtedly the best tour we had ever taken, anywhere. Turkey was amazing. The tour program designed by Argeus was outstanding. The attention we received from Mehmet at Argeus when we planned our trip was superb and personal. Best of all, the tour guide, Sukru, simply made Turkey come alive for us. We would return tomorrow if our schedules allowed, and we certainly plan another visit.
Before we flew to Turkey, we were worried about physical safety. That has to be a concern these days, but we felt comfortable and secure throughout our visit. Security at the airports and tourist attractions appeared to be professional and thorough, without being overbearing. Sukru arranged our schedule to avoid crowds, and it was a relief to have a knowledgeable guide taking care of us. After we completed our stay in Istanbul, where we walked and used public transportation, Argeus provided a driver and a very nice Mercedes Sprinter van. This made our travel comfortable, secure and efficient.
Argeus packed a lot into our trip. We saw much more than we would have on our own. Sukru had virtually all of the entry tickets in advance, and timed our visits to give us nearly private tours. For example, we got to Ephesus when it opened and had the place to ourselves for much of the morning. We had no waits at any attraction. The tour included many sites and museums that were bypassed by the larger tour groups. We were able to spend as much time as we wanted anywhere. All of the hotels were perfect – boutique places in good locations, comfortable, nicely furnished, and staffed by really great people. Restaurants were excellent. All of the food was great. We liked Turkish tea, salads with pomegranate dressing, grilled lamb and everything else that we tried.
We heartily recommend Turkey and Argeus Travel. Both treated us very well.
