A Customer Review

Aydin, Terry and I have returned home from a fantastic trip to Greece and your country, Turkey. We learned so much about your ancient and modern history. I'm still amazed at how seemless all the connections were. The transfers and tours (at least 15 total) were always on time and professional. The hotels were good, some better than others. We especially liked the Iliomaris in Mykonos. Thank you for doing such a great job arranging this last minute vacation for us! Sincerely, Tony.
