The Turkey Classics Tour was excellent! The itinerary was a great way to experience Turkey outside of Istanbul, and we were very pleased about what we saw and the overall pace of the tour. Our driver, Mehrat, was wonderful - careful and conscientious, we always felt safe. And our tour guide, Tamer, was fantastic!!! Tamer's knowledge on general history, combined with the specific history of the sites we saw and the area we covered, was tremendous. He taught us so much outside of history, too, focusing on current-day Turkey, inclusive of culture, politics, people, and religion. Our conversations were educational and interesting, and we enjoyed every moment! Tamer also went above and beyond by helping us make extra arrangements regarding travel and recommendations in Istanbul. He's a fantastic tour guide, and a wonderful, warm person who truly made the tour exceptional!

In regards to any improvement recommendations, I would offer to be aware that there is a of drive-time involved. We were prepared for this, but I would call it out so there are no surprises. Also, I would recommend an extra day in Cappadocia to see the sites more leisurely.

I just finished this tour (27th July - 2nd August) and it was fantastic. Our guide was Göksu, our driver was Murat and both were very friendly. I'd say this tour hinges on the quality of the guide and he was first class. Great to chat to, very knowledgable, great English and he creates a very comfortable atmosphere. He cared a lot about making sure the tour suited us and answered all our questions. When you go for food, trust his recommendations!

The tour was at a very relaxed pace - perfect for someone like me who is happy with only 1/2 hours history a day. For real history buffs, I'd possibly recommend a longer tour so you can spend more time at some of the larger sites.

I was impressed with the quality of the hotels and there was plenty of time to make use of the pools. Food was always tasty and traditionally Turkish although as the evening meals are pre-arranged you do miss out on the chance to roam local restaurants for yourself.

We visited 3 craft workshops: carpet, leather and ceramics. Ceramics was particularly enjoyable and we were all given a chance to make some pottery ourselves (with a serous amount of help). One warning about the leather shop: they place massively inflate price tags. I purchased a purse which was advertised as $450, I paid $112 but later found a second price tag inside they'd forgotten to remove which was for $35. Thankfully, after I emailed them, they got in touch with Göksu who once again sorted everything and they agreed to a partial refund. Whilst annoying, this certainly didn't detract from the overall experience.

This was my first time in Turkey and Göksu did an amazing job introducing me to their history and culture. I am confident that anyone who has the same guide will have a great time.

And many thanks to Murat who got up extra early specially to take me to the airport!

My husband and I just finished an amazing 7 day tour around Turkey (Nov 8-14, 2021) with Fez Travel. Our tour guide's name was Khan and from the moment we joined the tour, he made sure we were well taken care of. He was constantly checking in to make sure we liked the food, our rooms, and the activities. He would step in to adjust things if we had any specific preferences or needs. But probably the best thing was his knowledge. I learned so much about the history of Turkey, the significance of the sights we were seeing, the culture, the food...everything! His narrative made the tour more meaningful, it helped break up the longer drives, and it made me want to come back again to see more.

Our driver Yilmaz was also amazing! He was always ready and waiting for us (even at 11pm after going to the Turkiah dance performance). He took care of good care of our luggage when we got to the hotels, and he even helped us learn some Turkish :)

The hotels and food were great for the price. We especially liked the hotels in Kusadasi and Cappadocia.

Again, amazing tour and company. We'd love to come back again, and we'll be highly recommending Fez Travel to our friends and family!

Usually I travel solo with my own itinerary, but I realised that it’s not a good idea during this pandemic especially in Turkey. Fez Travel did a great job with their Turkey Classics tour. Our guide Cagman was very knowledgable about the history and geography of Turkey, with facts and figures, and well organised, at times he was open to healthy debates. This itinerary is really good if you enjoy history and being in place where it happened. We had to spend few hours from our valuable time in some commercial showrooms like carpet factory, leather shop, pottery shop, and jewellery shop. I was not into shopping, if you are there for shopping you may like it. Btw, it was interesting to see some demos like silk thread production. We missed Ankara due to the lockdown across the country on Sunday. I wish we had little more time in Cappadoccia. We had a well experienced driver and a comfortable van. Their office staff Canan was friendly, helpful and great service with timely response. Overall it was great experience and will recommend highly especially if you are first time in Turkey.

We just concluded a great vacation with family after being locked up for most part of 2 years due to the COVID pandemic.

We took the 7 day Classic tour and had a great experience. If you like road travel and ancient history- this is a must do. Each location was amazing. Our guide Cagman was engaging, had great knowledge and passion for the subject and locations and did a great job of never letting us get bored during the entire 7 day period. The driver Seyfi had a pleasant and comfortable driving style due to which we could cover the entire trip without feeling tired.

The kids loved Cappadocia the most. We loved the combination of historical sites with stops for some great traditional food along the way.

Thanks for a memorable holiday. Will definitely recommend Fez to anyone who wants to travel and visit Turkey.

The 7 day Turkey Classics Tour was perfect for us as we only had 8.5 days in the country. If you would like to see the main historical attractions this is a tour for you!

Our tour guide Gurksu did an amazing job clearly communicating at every stage of the tour. Giving us the history, significants and relevance to all the sites we visited, while not overloading us (which some guides tend to do). Very happily answered all questions and tried to assist us in any way he can. His knowledge and experience was quite evident throughout and set us all in the right mood.

Our driver, Yilmas, did an equally excellent job in keeping as on track and safe throughout the journey. The vehicle itself was very clean, comfy and with a sufficient amount of leg room.

Tips:
- Sit at the front/mid part of the van so you get the best view and less of the vehicle movements
- Ask your guide to help with ordering at the restaurants as some waiters know minimal english.
- The hot air ballon ride is a MUST.

Everything was AMAZING! From the moment we were picked up at the airport to the end of our tour we were well taken care of. The best experience and everything was very organized. On our tour we got to visit several places, but my favorite was Ephesus and everything we were able to see there. Our tour guide, Göksu Pamir, was very knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions. We unfortunately hit some snow storms during our tour and we had to make accommodations, but even the accommodations were handled super well and our driver did an amazing job of getting us to where we needed to be.

Absolutely fabulous experience despite COVID lockdowns. From dealing with the office staff who were all very accomodating to my requests to the tour driver to our very patient and knowledgable guide Cagman. Everyone did their best to accomodate all the requests, the van was comfy and the sights (other than gallipoli) were well worth it. The tour is very reasonably price also. Gallipolli was not exactly a trip highlight, and while i understand tjat is is mostly for people from Austalia and NZ I feel like that part could be skipped until those countries reopen. Driving 6 hours to see cemeteries was very depressing, I would suggest adding a beach day in Kusadasi or another day in Cappadocia because we definitely did not have enough time there. The rest of the trip was magical, food for the most part was good (blame COvID, not the tour company). Be prepared for people trying to sell you stuff (hard sell especially the carpets) at the factories. Best thing is to just walk away if you arent interested and dont give the salespeople hope. Overall the presentations very interesting. One thing I highly suggest is ask to stay in Goreme while in Cappadocia, not the listed hotel in the itinerary because that puts you in the middle of the cutest town and you can take wonderful.Instagram type pictures in the early am with the hot air balloons. That was definitely the highlight. Big props to Cagman for being so organized and the knowledge he shares is amazing. Would definitely tour with this company and tour guide again.

My mom and I did the 7 day Turkey Classic Tour from October 11-17. It was a wonderful experience! Our guide - Genghiskhan (Yes, that is his real name!) was above and beyond amazing! He was patient, kind, attentive and VERY knowledgeable. He made sure we were well looked after during our tour and addressed all our requests promptly. We also did a few extra activities which were not on our itinerary. Our driver, Yilmaz, was also very safe and polite. It was a pleasure to see his smiling face everyday.

Our experience with the hotels and restaurants during the tour was good, except for the first hotel we stayed at, in Canakkale - Barboros Hotel. The rooms were so so with no air conditioning. Also, the lunch restaurant on the way from Kuşadası to Pammukale had too many flies, which ruined the meal. But, all our other hotels and restaurants were excellent!

Our highlights were our guide and his attention to detail. Our group included 5 people. We were all very likeminded and got along very well. We all will go back home with new formed friendships. Overall, it was a great tour and a very professional company to travel with. Highly recommended! Turkey has so much to see and this is a perfect way to experience it!

It was an excellent tour, covering everything I wanted to see. Before I booked this tour, I researched quite a bit to find a perfect tour. (I’m a travel consultant.) What made me feel comfortable about this tour was Fez Travel’s Covid policy with 50% capacity and generous rescheduling policy. The communications with the marketing and product manager, Canan, was excellent. He answered my questions right away with detailed explanations, which made me comfortable with going with this company. And once we joined the tour, our tour guide, Göksu, was professional and very personable, along with the driver, Yilmaz, who went out of his way to assist my friend with a broken ankle, so that she could see the World Heritage sites. Both of them went above and beyond, that made our group like a family and hard to leave at the end of our week together. My tour mates, tour guide and driver are now in contact through Facebook. I highly recommend Fez Travel!
