    Hello Filiz, I want to thank you and share my gratitude for everything you did for us during our 14 day visit to Turkey. Your always prompt answers and services were notable as well as how reliable every driver, guide, airline and anyone else we dealt with was. The hotels you reserved were top-notch, the food was very good and abundant, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful and the whole experience was just perfect because you organized it so well. Thank you again, Joanne

    Hello Abdullah and Cristina, Thank you a thousand times — Abdullah, just as you did in Cappadocia, you have enabled me and my friend here in Egypt to have the most wonderful holiday, seeing things we always hoped and dreamed we might see, and being so very well taken care of. Our guides and the tour company here that you work with and the staff of the Ramesis I are all so helpful, everything thought of everything taken care of. And for such a good price. We are more than happy. As someone who now suffers from quite a lot of pain and sometimes has trouble with moving, everything has been done to make me comfortable and safe and allow me to see all I want to see. Oh, and the food is delicious. Last night on Nile, tomorrow back to Cairo to see more wonderful things. We look forward to again being in the company of our guide Dewa [I don’t know the spelling] and our tour leader Macmoud [again, don’t know spelling]. Our guide here, Mustafa, was just lovely. I am in awe of the amount of knowledge and languages and also the fun we have. Please know you have such happy clients. I knew it was a wise idea to come to you. All the best for you both, Nancy - USA

    Hi Filiz Just a little note to say Thank You very much for organising our tour to your beautiful country, we really appreciate that, all the minute details were taken care off we didn’t face any challenges and of course we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family. I would say you have a great team, Zeynep is a real asset to your company, her knowledge and general awareness is excellent, she is lovely to get along so well, she took care and looked after us so well, we were overwhelmed. The driver was great as well. It was sad to hear about the another blast at Ataturk, why do they do that to innocent people. I hope things get better soon and you get your tourism back as usual. Rest all is great and we are back to reality, to pay the credit cards and the bills and of course start saving for our other holiday. Thanks and Regards Anoop and Reena - Australia

    Dear Abdullah: I do not know if we told you that Turkey was just the beginning of our trip and we had a travel schedule for almost a month after that! It was a whirlwind trip! We are now back home and are slowly settling in. We want to thank you and your team for creating a wonderful time for us in Turkey. We had a real great time in all the places that we went, thanks to the excellent arrangements by your company! We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will soon write our review in Tripadvisor. The hotel in Pamukkale was not really that great, but we know that you could not do anything about it anyway; apparently, that one is considered as one of the top hotels in that area! The lobby and the pool were impressive, but the hotel left a lot to be desired in terms of quality of accommodation, food and service! I am also writing to you to find out if there is anyway I can get a copy of the e-tkt receipt for the Turkish airlines flight that you booked for us. I need them for claiming some missing mileages. Please let me know when you are next in LA so that we can meet. Thanking you, Seal Kala - USA

    Myself and my friends are usually not ones to travel with tours because we don't like the strictness/rigidness of being on a schedule etc, but without a car i realized it was going to be difficult to see all the things i wanted to in cappadocia in the short amount of time i had. I wanted to do a one day/night trip from istanbul and Euphrates was the only group that I could find (with decent reviews) that offered this. I got in contact with the group via email (with a Nuretkin Dogu) who responded to me in less than 12 hrs (given the time difference); i had a ton of questions and he responded to me patiently and with all the information and options. Payment was secure and easy, they took our personal info and booked our plane tickets, hotel, transfers, all the drivers were on time and the vehicles were safe was was their driving. The Gamirasu cave hotel was FANTASTIC, got an upgrade to the jacuzzi suite, it was the most divine hotel stay ever. Great restaurant, pool, cabana service, gargle available in room on request. We had booked the small group 8 person tour but it ended up being a private one with Turan Kiraç. He was perfect. He let you enjoy things at your own pace, and personalized the tour to us, as if he were showing it to friends he had just made. He grew up a few hours away so he is very in touch with the local history. He speaks the most perfect english with a hint of british accent (from trekking with brits for years-i iasked) I had also booked a hot air balloon tour but that morning it was windy and was spitting rain on and off so it was cancelled for safety, no balloons were out that day - a rarity and just my bad luck. anyways, euphrates refunded me the money that same day without me even having to mention it. they were incredibly professional. I highly recommend this tour group, they are a pleasure to deal with from the first email to the final airport drop off :)

    I would like to sing the praises of Euphrates Tours/Cappadocia Tours. After having been shut out of a slightly less-expensive tour (which had a questionable hotel option called 'the Flintstone Cave Hotel'), I telephoned Ms. Filiz Özkan K. of Euphrates Tours. She was very nice, informative and accommodating on the telephone, speaking perfect English. She hooked me and my traveling friend up with the tour immediately. This was a Thursday-Friday tour arranged by telephone late Wednesday! We arrived at Attaturk Airport for the flight to Cappadocia and were directed to VIP for first-class treatment. The flight seats were also in business class, which was a pleasant surprise. After a short flight, we were greeted at the airport by our tour guide and driver, both named Umit. Umit Ocal, the tour guide, was incredible. A student of languages, religion, history, philosophy and politics, and possessing worldly experience (a former U.N. soldier who was born and raised in the area), he provided endless information and insight. But the best part was that he was flexible enough to tailor the tour to our desire, combining religious sites with natural environmental wonders to our desire. Also, as the tour was not full (the tour is never more than eight persons) and consisted of just me and my travel-companion, we basically were afforded the 'private' tour at the regular tour price. Rounding out the 'Umit' dynamic duo was the driver, Mr. Baykal. Perfect! Guided the Mercedes van effortlessly through some of the tightest village corners and provided a smooth ride the whole time. The lunches (included) were at top-rate restaurants located in interesting towns, and the hotel was first-class, with one of the best breakfast buffets I've had anywhere. Saw everything that we wanted/needed to see, and at a comfortable pace. All-in-all, one of the best trips ever. I cannot say enough about the quality of this experience, and recommend this tour highly.

    Dear Yasemin I just wanted to say a very big THANKYOU for organising our holiday in Turkey. You did a wonderful job. We loved Istanbul, the hotel was fabulous and the guide certainly knew her history and was very informative and helpful. We also loved Cappadocia, the scenery was magnificent, the hotel was good and again the tour guide very informative.(having more than 15mins at the Fairy Chimneys would have been even better, that was a bit rushed with so much to take in and photograph, we literally had to race around) Thankyou for organising it, every thing went to plan with the pick ups and drop offs. Really was excellent. THANKYOU Yasemin ! wishing you well and all the very best. Kind regards Rozelle and Ian from Brisbane, Australia
