Destination of Choice: Turkey
I came back safely yesterday and thought I’ll drop you an email to feedback on the trip. Succinctly putting it, the entire trip was just FANTASTIC & AWESOME! We cannot think of anything negative except we had to keep buying water during the trip. Anyhow, we survived and not expensive also.
We are so thankful and blessed to have arranged for us the most professional and knowledgable guide. He was like a walking encyclopedia or something! He made the entire 5 days one solid learning journey of the history and culture of ancient and modern day Turkey. Also the driver was most attentive and patient with us. He’s always prompt in handling our luggages and even sprung to clean the car when it got dusty! He’s also a steady driver, navigating through winding and slippery roads in the snow and rain. We never had to worry about anything since he’s at the wheel.
As you can tell, I (on behalf of the rest) have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We managed to do the balloon tour in perfect weather conditions and to top it all, we were in the group where a surprise proposal was planned! We were treated to lovely music and wine in the most romantic landing spot! During the Pamukkale tour, we also were blessed with most perfect weather! No rain till Ephesus!
A pity I had to leave Istanbul so early…I was just getting used to the getting around and there’s still so much more to see!!!!! For sure, I have not had enough of Turkey! Will ‘bother’ you again next time! Thank you for everything, including the upgrading of our hotels. Your detailed and thoughtful planning was the first step to making this trip a success for us.
Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year.
