Highlights of Turkey

This was an incredible trip and our guide Zafar made it so. He was extremely knowledgeable about Turkish history and was able to impart it in a very interesting way. His sense of humour and the stories he was able to tell about life and events in history made it come alive.he willingly arranged group suppers for us every night of the trip and we were able to have amazing culinary experiences we would not have had otherwise. The scenery and the variety of experiences meant we were never bored.

Ancient Sites, Friendly People

This was a tour of an amazing country. Turkey is an amalgam of people that have arrived over the centuries, leaving behind a wonderful heritage; there are so many ancient sites that the local population have lived alongside and only recently begun to appreciate. And yet it is amazingly self-sufficient in the modern climate of globalization.

Wonderful holiday of discovery

We are seasoned Exodus travellers with about ten previous trips under our belts so were prepared for another adventure of a lifetime and were not disappointed! Turkey is so diverse with amazing cities, mountains, coast and scenery and our guide made sure out time was fully utilised and every opportunity seized, from sunrises to sunsets. We travelled with friends and allowed ourselves a couple of extra days in Istanbul - a wonderful, buzzing city with plenty to see and do - before joining our group. Our time was packed with an excellent and informative tour of the city, with extensive information provided by Zafer not only on the buildings and sites, but on people's way of life and great dining experiences.

Highlights of Turkey

Absolutely the worst tour I have experienced in many years of travel. But the major bone of contention lies squarely on the unprofessionalism exhibited by our tour director, Zafer. Destinations were interesting as Turkey is a fascinating country with ancient sites I consider as jewels. Overall, too many hours were spent on the bus as distances between highlights are vast. However little foresight by the tour guide exacerbated the situation. Toilet stops were infrequent; too long spend in food service centres; most days were conducted in a helter-skelter atmosphere causing some major highlights to be rushed or missed entirely. Hotels mostly were below standard/basic; some should be condemned.

Exodus Response

We were very sorry to learn that Helene was so disappointed with her tour leader. On the back of client feedback our local manager will be providing Zafer with further training before he leads any other Exodus tours. We would like to assure our clients that we are confident that the vast majority of our leaders are very popular and we regularly receive fantastic comments from clients about the value their tour leader has added to their enjoyment of their trip. Of clients who completed their holiday evaluation forms last year, 93% of our travellers said our leaders met or exceeded their expectations and in the online reviews posted by clients who have travelled with us all over the world, there are numerous commendations for their tour leaders which we feel is reassuring, but we sincerely regret that Helene's experience in Turkey was not as positive.

Highlights of Turkey

I had an amazing time on this tour exploring the sites of Turkey. Our guide, Zafer, had incredible knowledge of archeology, ancient history and greek mythology. I can't wait to go back and see Eastern Turkey next time.

An absolute gem of a tour

Wow - what a holiday! I really felt that I saw and learned a huge amount about Turkey in just 2 weeks, and though it was busy with quite a bit of time in the bus some days, there was enough down time to relax. It helps that the tour guide was fantastic and the group were a great bunch too.

Highlights of Turkey

This is an interesting journey, taking in some fabulous venues, and some interesting experiences. The trip involves long hours by coach, but this is the only way to cover the key locations around Turkey. There were many highlights during the trip starting in Istanbul, and working our way around the major cities and sites.
