A Customer Review

Linda and I want to offer our thanks to you to all of your staff for a magnificent trip to Greece, the isle of Crete, and to Turkey. You arranged the perfect trip after we described our specific interests in early Christian frescos and mosaics, the Mycenaec and Bronze age culture, and of course the classical Greek and Byzantine cultures. In addition to touching the walls of Troy and Mycenae and the many well known and visited sites, you arranged so much more. Each day was a great adventure, personalized for two people you had never met. Istanbul is beyond description and our guide Cemal was wonderful. You selected ideal hotels for our stays in Athens, Crete, Istanbul, Assos, and Selcuk. The village of Assos was a wonderful surprise. We wish we could have spent more time in this Turkish heaven. All of your arranged guides were excellent. We at all times felt safe and each day closed with a wonderful meal and a restful sleep. Aydin, please accept our deepest gratitude. I would be so pleased to be able to answer any questions from possible clients or agents in North America. Linda and I wish you our very best. Warmest thanks, Kevin and Linda.
