Istanbul - May 2015 - Terrific Tours - Highly Recommend

We have used TSC travel on several occasions whilst visiting beautifulnIstanbul.

Proposed tours have been delivered by good quality guides. During yesterday Mustafa, Gave us a most enjoyable day visiting several different sites in Istanbul. We were picked up as arranged from the Cruise terminal on time. Driver excellent, vehicle clean and well maintained

Today the ferry ride to Princes Island and the Carriage ride followed by lunch was just right and our guide Hasan was organised and supervised our small group of 7 very well.

All arrangements in dealing with Melek Ada have been professional and well documented.

You can safely rely on delivery of good tours led by quality guides at a fair and resonable price.

We were delighted with the service.

Istanbul trip 2015
 
Okan and Hasan at TSC Travel are truly amazing and friendly tour guides. They made my friends and I very comfortable during our 6 days in Istanbul.

They "smoothed" out all the stereotypical assumptions and answered all our questions with prompt facts. Effiency in our transportation and tour schedule were well planned. Going the extra mile is a common trait of theirs such as arranging a surprise birthday cake and ensuring were always together as a group. 

They take great pride in their town and country and are not afraid to show off the good life and great history of an intriguing culture the Turks have. I had a 'belly dance' blast and memorable experience and cant wait to tell everyone back home. 

Thanks again Hasan and Okan of TSC!
