We will be cruising and would like to use a private tour company in Turkey. Any recommendations? How about Athens?
Moonstone, welcome to Turkey.
I do not use tour operators but here are some good tour companies that are recommended by Tom Brosnahan, a well known travel writer and former author of Lonely Planet Turkey: "www.turkeytravelplanner.com/tourop/index.html".
Check out "Indian Panorama". My group used them in May of 2011 and were not disappoined. They were not the cheapest nor were they the highest in their quote, but they have many great reviews on TA and we were not disappointed.
Yes. I went on a land tour in early October, 2013. The tour company is Dos Plumas. They seem to specialize in small group and private tours. There were 11 people on my tour. We Visited Istanbul (stunning), Capadoccia (overwhelming) and Ephesus/ Hieropolis (fun and remarkable). All hotels, transportation and guides were arranged, and they were all good. There were a couple of very minor glitches that do not keep me from highly recommending this company. They were helpful from my first inquiry to my departure. We only had 10 days, which is way too short, but boy,did we ever see alot of wonderful places and things. Too bad Turkey is such a long flight away ! because I would like to go back for a longer time and include some slower time in Istanbul and then some Mediterranean coast time
