What others say about us

Let me just jump right on this bandwagon:  Rae Ellen, you’ve done it again!

And because of you, the inestimable Nesli was willing to take us on.  In addition to the superb care she took of us throughout the trip to Turkey, she is a shopper extraordinaire! Best to you – can’t wait to plan the next trip.

I am not sure if Patrice got to you already, but I wanted to let you know how fabulous our time in Turkey was – Nesli was a gift from above as a guide- lovely, knowledgeable, flexible and just all around great. The boat and crew were a dream and in terms of timing we could not have had better weather the entire trip.  As you already know we thought the Park Hyatt was the perfect location, but I will say it again anyway: you were right.  Thank you and your team for all your hard work.  Best,

Hi Nesli

I have been home a few days and I have not yet had a chance to tell you how wonderful our time in your beautiful country was.  It was a fabulous trip, and despite my high expectations you managed to exceed all of them!  Each day was special and the time on the boat was truly relaxing.  Erdem, Mehmet and Kenan were  a fabulous crew who were just a pleasure to be on board with. And Ozgor was a wonderful, fun and knowledgeable guide for all we did on our last day.  We did of course miss our wonderful guide Nesli, but he was a very good replacement.   Thank you again for your wonderful hospitality- I hope to get back to Turkey again.  All the best,

Dear Attila,
Thank you for the unusual experience! You have shown us a great deal using off the beaten paths and help us understand the contemporary Istanbul.
Thank you again for the great services and your professionalism.
