    It was a wonderful tour. I am especially grateful to our guide Tuche who made the tour very much enjoyable and amazing. Unfortunately in some hotels we had problems with broken equipment and the food was not proper.

    Firstly we’d like to thank you for taking the time to post our feedback. We value customers feedback as it helps us to constantly improve. Indeed both the American and Turkish governments stopped issuing visas to the other countries citizens near your departure date. As a result, you cancelled 10 days prior to departure. According to our Terms and Conditions there is no refund where a booking is cancelled between 0 and 13 days of departure. TourRadar’s Terms and Conditions are no refund if cancelled less than 30 days before departure. However, as this situation was out of the control of either of us it falls under ‘Force Majeure’, “unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract.” This should be covered by your compulsory travel insurance. We would dearly like to see you here in Turkey on one of our tours. And if your insurance company doesn’t cover you we would be more than happy to have you on any future departure of this tour.

    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... Read more

    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.
