My wife and I recently visited Greece for 11 days. All arrangements were made for the two of us by Chevy Noratli with Encounter Tours and it made our trip so much easier. From the minute we exited the airport in Athens until we returned at the end of our trip, every taxi driver and tour van met us on time and delivered us to our next destination, exactly as planned. Chevy chose a wonderful variety of sites for us to visit both on the mainland and in the islands. Tour guides were excellent and the accommodations were very good. We also took a trip to Turkey with Encounter Tours a couple of years ago and it was fabulous. I would recommend Encounter Tours to anyone and look forward to more tours with them in the future.

Kaletour Tourism is a small company that plans your trip with all the details taken care of. The moment you arrive to the time you leave your trip has been well planned.
In the planning comes your input! There are many already designed trips but when you want to go off the beaten path or have a need to see something special Kale makes it happen.

You may have a guide join you to all the areas you visit OR you can go on a self guided trip and have Kale make all the arrangements for your hotels, transportation, excursions, and special events. Which ever you choose you will be delighted with the personal care they have put into your visit.

We spent 11 days in Turkey with Kaletour this September and had a fabulous time. We were well accommodated and enjoyed our guides Yelcin and Sedat very much. The pace was a little fast, but I think that was because we wanted to see "everything" in just 11 days! We loved Cappadocia and our spectacular hot air baloon ride over it, Istanbul, Kas, Ephesus, everything. The people were lovely and the food was fantastic. The three night cruise on a Turkish Gulet was a highlight; only manned by three young men, including the captain, a cook and a deck hand: we couldn't believe how wonderful the food was and we got to sleep on deck if we wanted to! Swimming in the Mediterranean right off the boat was SO fun and we even saw a turtle! The only place we went that I would recommend against on the entire tour was the Gar Music hall in Istanbul. It was touristy and hoaky and the food was terrible, especially considering how much good food Istanbul has to offer.

My wife and I recently visited Turkey and spent 6 days with Encounter Tours travelling to some of the well-known tourist spots. Although this was a somewhat difficult summer for tourism in Turkey, all the arrangements had been carefully made and were completely followed, always on time. Tour guides were excellent, and travel arrangements and accommodation were very good. Pre-travel correspondence was always answered promptly and helpfully by Chevy Nortali, who was also responsible for the planning.

We had a 5 day tour booked with Kaletour starting and finishing in Antalya.
We stayed 2 nights in Pamukkale and 2 nights in Capadoccia
All the following was included: hotel, most of the meals except drinks, all the entrance fees and transfers.
We had a fantastic time in Pamukkale, the day tour was amazing. Then we were transferred by car to Capadoccia. It was a long drive but it made us discover the country side, landscape…and a visit to Konya. On the negative side the driver wasn't speaking English but then he wasn't a guide.... The main thing is, we got to our destination.
Cappadoccia was amazing and the 2 day tours were great. Well organised and good tour guides on site.
We were a bit apprehensive about the transfer back by coach to Antalya, but we did not regret it. Mainline Turkish coaches are very comfortable and it was an experience we were glad we had.
We had a small issue on the final payment but this was refunded promptly and handle professionally.
If I may give a little advice, if you decide to use Kaletour, try to get all the information in advance. We found that the Itinerary could have been more detailed with timing pick up, drop off, transfer by car, coach or mini bus; also due to the fact that they are using third party for the tours be aware they may change the days around.

To sum up, we all three had a fantastic time in Turkey. We saw everything we wanted to see and more.

I would not hesitate to recommend Chevy at Kaletour to my friends and familly.

Chevy; We really enjoyed it.
