The tour exceeded my expectations – everything was great such as hotels, bus + driver, attractions visited. However the best part of the tour was our guide! Yavuz was very knowledgeable, entertaining, caring and easily the best guide I have had on a tour. He was very committed to ensuring everyone had a great time and always went above and beyond for us. He is an asset to Travel Talk.
Overall I am satisfied with my travel in Turkey with Travel Talk. I’ll definitely do it again. People, tourist destinations, climate and budget are all pretty good for travellers.
Travel Talk was a wonderful experience. I didn’t know what to expect coming here but was completely blown away. Mustafa our guide was so energetic, helpful and made the trip so much more enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and this tour has made me feel the same way about Turkey. Our bus driver Kamil (although he didn’t speak English) was a pleasure to be around, always happy and smiling and very safe driver. Thank you very much. I will be recommending to friends and family and will be doing another Travel Talk Tour very soon.
