    4.0 - Good

    I did the Fantastic Turkey 9 day tour not long ago. The guide Yavuz was very knowledgable about the country, and passionate about what he was saying. He had a sense of humour, and was pretty relaxed, unlike some other guides I have had! The trip overall was good, however there are a couple of things I would want to advise others about. When you go on the gulet, you are with the boat crew (not your guide), and in the guidelines in the cabin, it says you are required to give a minimum of €35 each as a tip. I wouldnt usually mind tipping, as they did a fantastic job, and absolutely earned it, but it would have been a lot easier on us financially if it was just included in the tour price, so we could budget it in, at the very least we could have been told about it in advance. The other thing I would want people to know is if you do the 9 day tour, you are taken to the hotel on the 8th day around 5pm with the rest of the group who are continuing on the 12 day tour. Dinner is not included for you on that night, and you don't get taken to the bus station until 9pm, where you then embark on a 12hr overnight bus trip back to Istanbul. I found this a bit ridiculous, as we could eat with the rest of the group, but had to pay to do so.

    Hi Renee, thank you for your review, we value all our customer’s feedback to deliver the best service to our passengers as possible. In regards to the minimum 35 Euro tip required by the Gulet crew, that should not have been stated, it is not a requirment by Travel Talk, thank you for letting us know , we are opening an investigation about this matter with our boat crew, we're very sorry about this. We are happy to refund you the tip money please contact our call center either by mail on info@traveltalktours.com or by calling 02080999596 to organize your tip refund. Thank you.

    Had the best time in Turkey last year! The local guides are amazing and really enhance the experience - very funny yet informative. The hotels we stayed in were lush, everyone loved them. The gulet cruise was fun and Pamukalle was unreal. Would love to visit Turkey again - one of my favourite countries now!
