Fantastic Turkey!
TSC made our trip to amazing Turkey worth every cent. Professional and extremely helpful staff and management made sure that we saw all the main sites in only 3 days, even with a trip to Ephesus included, on VERY short notice. I will definitely recommend them to all my friends and will DEFINITELY use them again. I have to go back to Turkey...did not see enough.

Great Trip to Turkey
I used TSC to arrange a trip to Turkey for me and my niece in August. Okan was so responsive to all my questions and created a wonderful itinerary for us.The hotels were conveniently located and our guides were great. A truly memorable trip for both of us. I highly recommend TSC and Okan for anyone planning a trip to Turkey!

Istanbul Tour

TSC travel were very helpful when booking a last minute tour of Istanbul. 
However when I arrived I found I was checked into a different (lower standard) hotel that I originally booked, it took quite a few calls and emails to persuade TSC to move me to a better hotel. The situation was resolved when I was moved to a lovely hotel in a great area.

I enjoyed Istanbul and all other aspects of the booking were fine.
