    All things Turkey
    We cant say enough wonderful things about our recent tour of Turkey. FAZLI and Mr. FEBZI were amazing. We were greeted warmly each day. We were totally immersed in Turkish culture. The weather was great, the education outstanding and the food superb. We had a customized tour and couldnt have asked for more. The days were filled with activity and beautiful sights. Just when you couldnt think of seeing something more beautiful, Fazli didnt disappoint. He always had another beautiful sight the next day Oh, and the food. We had the best of everything, because Fazli is well known and treated with great respect and shows great respect. If you have one chance to your Turkey, this tour operator is the one for you Thank you
