Davut was an excellent guide who is extremely knowledgeable & helpful. Ibrahim (our driver) was pleasant and a safe driver. It would have been nice to spend more time in certain places, but then more days would need to be added! Overall from the booking of our tour to final destination, this introduction to Turkey was an unforgettable experience!

The tour exceeded our expectations - the itinerary was fantastic (and not something we could have covered by ourselves). It was well organised, covered a lot of ground and the group bonded really well. The highlight of the tour, in addition to the fabulous sites (my favourite was Ephusus) was Faruk Yildiz and our driver. Faruk brought things to life, by telling us not just about the sites and their history, but also about life in Turkey and the regions we were visiting. He was always polite, knowledgable, and is a great asset to your company. We have great memories and I can't thank him enough, so we are recommending both beautiful Turkey, Fez Travel and Faruk to our friends.

The best holiday of my life was a trip with Fez Travel in Turkey. I experienced a country I fell in love with and saw a beautiful landscape, rich history and amazing culture. My love of all things "Turkey" has been strong since that day. I made friendships on that Fez Travel trip which will last a lifetime and I have been praising your services to friends and family since my return. A number have even travelled with Fez since because of my recommendations. Thank you Fez Travel for the wonderful memories and I hope that I can share new memories of Turkey with my wife!

Hi guys! Just had my pax pop in, Mr Barry Smith-- we'd booked him an ad hoc trip with Fez back in September to Istanbul and Ephesus/Kusadasi for a few days. HE LOVED IT!!!! He was incredibly impressed with the guides, loved and was amazed at the fact they're all uni graduates in history etc and was so happy that they were able to answer any question they were asked. He said that originally he had thought the price might be a little on the high side yet once he was on the trips and afterwards, he felt it was very good value- loved all the transfers, included meals, entrance fees etc. So a huge thank you to you and the guides, you've got a fan for life in Barry!

This was the first bus tour my husband and I joined. We enjoyed every minute of it. Although the travelling per bus was very exhausting we stopped every hour and a half to stretch our legs. The places are very far apart and we would not have seen it if it was not for the tour. Our tourguide, Kevanc was very knowledgeable and professional and it was a pleasure to travel with him. From our pick up to our departure to the airport was very well planned. The last day we took an early flight back to Istanbul from Phumukale as we did not want to spend another 9 hours on the bus.

Turkey was absolutely awesome!!!!!! We spent only 2 weeks here unfortunately and had a great time exploring as much as possible. Starting in Istanbul then heading to Gallipoli, Troy and Kusadasi using FEZ Travel. FEZ are definitely a must if heading this way. Kusadasi was beautiful and on the water, we then used local buses to head to Pamukkale then down to Fethiye were we hopped on a Blue Cruise for 4 days. This included 3 nights and 4 days of relaxing, swimming and eating. Next was Olympos were chilling is a must. 2 days here wasn't enough. we actually extended and decided to fly from Antalya back to Istanbul rather than kill ourselves on a 14hr bus trip. Gozleme is a local pancake type thing which is cheap and cheerful. all the food was tasty. but the aftermath and the squirts were part of it.

This tour was fantastic! The tour guide was very knowledgeable. He made the tour seem to come alive. He put the facts into a context that made it all understandable and fascinating. At first, I thought that the bus ride to and from Troy would seem too long, but it did not. We had breaks for coffee/snacks, for lunch and for dinner. Plus the ride with the view of the sea to the side was lovely. This is a great tour and I have already encouraged my friends to include it when they visit Turkey.

It was a perfect organised trip from beginning till end! Pick-up from Hotel in time. Tou rguides on the rides and scenes spoke English very well and were very informative. Drop-off also in time. In the evening I stayed in an hotel in Canakkale very nice hotel!. This was a good decision to make because I think in Canakkale there are more bars and restaurants than on the island and this is closer to Troje so my hotel pick-up was at 11:30. Gallipoli was very impressive especially because I was ther at March 18th 2015. Troje was also very interesting because of the importance place in historical writing. I can recommend this trip to everyone!

Firstly we visited ANZAC cove, then the "beach cemetery", then the ANZAC Cemetery and memorial, the Turkish 57th Army cemetery and the high Defence point taken by Ataturk, the Turkish general, with a NZ memorial nearby and some reconstructed trenches - from here you could see the whole lay of the land.

Typical of Turkish tours, the tour included several visits to shopping venues, some of which for us were tiresome. We had wished t times we could have spent the time at the historical sites but realize some of the others on the tour like these sorts of things. Overall the site visits and shopping stops were reasonably balanced.
I have used Viator in the past and have been generally pleased with the service. This tour included travelers who booked through various agencies.
