We picked a tour company from the internet to plan a trip to Turkey for us. We didn’t want a “standard” tour packed on buses nor did we want a guide with us all the time. Okan Kutlu and TSC Travel, based in Istanbul, and did an outstanding job for very picky travelers. Our itinerary, hotels and tour guides were all exceptional. We covered a lot of territory, but never felt rushed or that we missed anything. Okan listened to what we wanted in a tour and planned it perfectly - the Aegean, Cappadocia and Istanbul - three or four days in each area with interesting, lovely hotels in perfect locations. We were so pleased that we’re having him plan our trip next year to Egypt and Jordan. I highly recommend Okan and http://www.turkeytourspecialist.com.
