    The tour guide was excellent, he went out of his way to do everything required, plus other things over and above what he was obliged to do, a lovely man. Give that man a pay rise. The bus drivers too was lovely, despite not being able to communicate with him in English, and a good driver as well We were not impressed to find out that you gave us a price for one night at the blue tuana, of 190, after and seperate to our tour, which we agreed to only because we were comparing with our previous stay/ price of 215, but forgot that was for two nights, not one, and when we realised this we asked the owner what the price was, and he said 120 a night. Why were we charged an extra 70? We will never be using you guys again and disgusted the Xtra money you charged us, given what we had already paid for a tour with you, not exactly looking after your customers.
    Fez Travel commented on this review
    Hi Brent, Really sorry for our mistake with your accommodation pricing, I have talked with our operation clerk and Cengiz (your tour guide). They did make a mistake with your accommodation price and gave you 190 TL including transfer for your Bodrum airport. Cengiz said he was trying to organize your extra night accommodation and transfers for the other people who are returning with flight from Cappadocia. So our operation clark mixed up and give you full rate including airport transfer. As you mentioned, we have charged you 70 TL more and we would like to sort it out. We are absouletly sorry for it but it will be quicker if you would contact us when you found out the difference. I will email to you and hope to sort it out shortly.

    Well it was a good experience touring around turkey, i saw alot interesting places , historical and natural, but I didn't like most of the hotels , like some of them is in the middle of no where and some is saying they are 5 stars and there not ! , and i know that the food is nice in turkey but our guide was picking the wrong places to eat and especially when we take a break on the road, didn't give us a lot choices , and some of the places wasn't worth it to visit! like konya!, and there was alot of places we wanted to visit but it wasn't in the program, like the grand buzzar , but the cappducia was the best , and more better was the group i was with , they made this trip worth it , and overall i can give this trip a rate of 60% and the group 200% , but at any rate I recommend this trip ;)

    The tours are well organized, most hotels are good. Our guide Ahmet Seglam (?) Is very knowledgeable, and friendly. Speaks English fluently. Some times we were rushed a bit, but I think he did the best he can to fit everything included in 10 days. Turkey is a fantastic country, I suggest every one must go there at least once, forget the safety issues, you won't regret it.

    We had a fabulous tour. Our guide Askin was excellent and looked after us to ensure we all learned a lot about the history and culture of Turkey. He also saw to our comforts in the hotels which were of a very high standard. I can really recommend this tour and it may be good to even repeat it in a year or twos time to be able to take in the wealth of knowledge and richness of the country.
