I should like to take this time to thank you and the team for arranging such a fantastic tour of your beautiful country! We had an absolutely fantastic time, and have to come to hold a much deeper appreciation, and admiration, for Turkey. The Old City tour with Hal was most informative, well-paced and enjoyable. We especially appreciated his knowledge and insight into the things we saw and experienced. The 'Treasures' tour through Anatolia and along the West Coast with Polat (and our awesome driver, Burc!) was most excellent. Polat did an awesome job of keeping our small group moving through the many sites and wonders at a pace that allowed us to take everything in but at the same time linger a bit to absorb our surroundings. Polat's depth of knowledge and great sense of humour was appreciated by us all. We were sorry to lose him at the tail end of the trip as we felt we'd made a good friend in him. A great big thank to both tour guides and to the driver - they afforded us some great, great experiences and memories. .
I would also like to say thanks, Ozgur, for aiding in arranging the Blue Cruise with Barbaros Yachting. We joined the Ugur Kaan, captained by Turgut Kaya, with hand Mehmet and Dursan and we had a blast with a great mix of folks from Australia, USA, Germany and Turkey joining us - a true global mix! That time on the Mediterranean was a perfect cap to the land tour. Of course, we now have a special place in our hearts for Istanbul - was a glorious city!.
And, finally, a special thank you to you, Ozgur, for your adept and professional touch in organizing our time away... and for putting up with my myriad questions before arriving! I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and will have no qualms in highly recommending your services and expertise to all friends and family interested in traveling to Turkey. After hearing about our recent adventures, I have more than a few friends who are now seriously considering their own journey to Turkey. When they wish to travel, I will make sure they contact you. You gave us 5-star service throughout and we thank you. Should any of your prospective clients wish to query a former client directly, do not hesitate to provide them my name/email... I'd be happy to dialogue with them!.
I have attached a few pics of our time with your team, and of your lands, and also wanted to let you know I have posted a review on Tripadvisor.com as well - it should be posted by tomorrow. I wish you many great, good successes in your endeavours and may CoS prosper and grow (serefe!) -- keep up the great work!.
