Here are some feedback and turkey tour reviews from our many satisfied customers:
Hi Angela, Yasemin and Chris,
I want to thank you for all your help in organizing our trip. We really had a wonderful experience. Istanbul was amazing and our side trip to Kapadokya was spectacular. We really appreciate all your help with last minute changes and details.
The Istanbul tours were perfect… A great way to be introduced to such a beautful and complex city. The side trip to Kapadokya was the highlight of the trip. The hotel and sights… Especially the balloon ride were all unforgettable. I am glad we were able that stay one more day and relax and enjoy the hotel as well as see a few more sights.
Thanks again for all of your help. I hope to visit Turkey again and will definitely look to you and Sojourn for help.
Sincerely, Roland April 2014
Hotel was fabulous!! My daughter said it was the coolest place she’d ever been. Food was delicious, too; I wish we’d eaten there both nights. Jasmin did a terrific job! M. Smith June 2014
Sojourn, Chris, Angela and Yasmina (Jasmine) were excellent in every respect. She was patient, thorough, and responded to all of our requestsand questions in a very timely fashion. Our Cappadocia tour was excellent and well-paced. Our guides, Ramsey, Hamedi, and Emine were good, with Hamedi being the best. Our airport pick ups in Istanbul were timely and drivers courteous. L.D.

Delightful introduction to Istanbul. Our guides were friendly and helpful, as were the staff at the hotel. The breakfast room and breakfast at the hotel was excellent.
Our guide the last day, Oman was good, but we thoroughly enjoyed our first guide Omer, who was with us for 2 days. The horseback ride at Cemal Ranch was a high point of the trip for me, exploring the amazing countryside by the rhythm of horse and the expertise of the owner of the ranch. We felt like honored guests afterwards, when he served us tea and special things to eat. Our pilot, Suat, on the balloon ride was incredibly skillful, both as pilot and guide but also for creating an amazingly convivial atmosphere among so many different nationalities in our balloon basket! We loved everything about the region –the beautiful hospitality, the rich history, the landscape, the food…
Please thank all the various people associated with this trip:the hotel personnel, the guides, provided by the local companies, the Royal Balloon Company for their amazing organization, and all the drivers. We found everyone delightfully charming and appreciate the welcome we received.
It was wonderful to stay right on the waterfront and be able to walk to Pigeon Island. We ate both nights at Kazim Usta, recommended by the hotel and were thrilled by both food and the flair of the delightful waiters. Our guide was very earnest and eager to explain the ruins.The only glitch was in transportation when we arrived in Istanbul after Kusadasi. There was a mix-up with pick-up at the Istanbul airport– but the shuttle worked out fine.Our apologies to the driver who came the next morning– we can called to cancel, thinking to take the shuttle back to the airport, and kept him waiting. It was very convenient to have such door to door service and the Holiday Inn at the Airport was a fine choice of hotel.
Sojourn Turkey is my travel partner for Turkey! Here is my Turkey tour reviews: I appreciated their coordination of my trip, especially one essential part. My dream was to take a “once in a lifetime” hot air balloon ride on 11-11-11 overlooking Cappadocia. Sojourn knew just the right company to make this dream come true! From pilot to support crew, they provided premium customer service and care. Thanks Sojourn Turkey for knowing who’s who in premium hot air balllon service in Cappadocia. — Ann Chastain, Marietta, GA
I’ve been recommending to everyone since going there! The tour was very thorough. We were able to learn a lot and see such amazing sites. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly!
Our guide was fantastic! He was incredibly knowledgeable. He was also skilled at reading people and adjusted things to people’s interests and energy level, which is a great quality in a tour guide. – A. Dobri, Canada
You guys do a great job! Sojourn was terrific! If we return to Turkey, we hope to do business with you all once again. You guys do a great job! – S. Livingston, Houston, TX
Our tours were great. Fatiha was a fabulous guide planning the events at a nice pace and rhythm. The lunches we had were great at well chosen restaurants.Fatiha was full of interesting facts and stories from history, nature, geology, politics, religions. It was a most enjoyable experience touring under his guidance. I enjoyed the small group size 6 our first day 8 the second. I also liked meeting people from all corners of the world and spending meal time with them in rich conversation. We loved the hotel. The management is friendly and helpful. The location ideal and the ambiance so well done having the old world greek feeling construction, dug out cave rooms with terraces to sit out on overlooking the old town and valley. Beautiful walks right out your door. Good restaurants near by. The castle and shopping within walking distance. Wonderful breakfasts. Overall we had a great trip and we couldn’t have managaed this trip without you. We would recommend your service to others. – L. Klisch, St. Joseph, MN
Fabulous experience. Great equipment, guide spoke excellent English. HIghly recommend. – Rudy D. New York City
Thank you. We were delayed in marathon traffic but your guide helped us connect with the tour and it was very good. Martha A. San Fran.CA
We had such great experiences at the Tuvana, Olea Nova and Vista Hill where the service was personal, the atmosphere relaxed yet the staff all and still maintained professional standards. Maybe because the owners were on-site and involved. EE. – CT, USA
Dear Angela – S. and I are safely home. We had a wonderful trip. Thank you for all your work to put such a terrific itinerary together for us. If / when we return to Turkey (and we realize we should not have missed Cappadoccia) we will bein touch. We wish you continued success in your business. – Liza.
Chris,Thanks again for organizing Karen’s trip on such short notice. They had a fabulous time. Mark – Los Angeles, US
You did a GREAT JOB and we will definitely recommend you to friends desiring a well planned trip to Turkey. Martha – NY, New York
Our trip to Ephasus with your guide Babur was phenomenal. He was enthusiastic about his country, this area and Ephasus. His descriptions brought the ruins to life. Stephen has a long standing interest in pre- and ancient history. He and Babur had wide ranging conversations. Babur’s formal education enabled him to answer all our questions and put many things in perspective. On top of that he was courteous, attentive to our personal comforts, and selected an ideal “local” restaurant in Selcuk for lunch. We appreciated having the same driver, he confirmed he will be picking us upat 10:45 for our drive to Izmir airport. The hotel is also good, the room (suite) is spacious. I believe it was worth the upgrade. Lisa E. Shreveport, LA
Chris, Thank you and your staff for all your help. Our entire vacation was exciting and it started in Istanbul. – Charlie R. Florida
First, let me say how happy and pleased I have been with all my interactions with Sojourn. Yasemin has been very helpful and responsive to my every question and desire. Based on that experience, I would be happy to recommend Sojourn to anyone. I did a lot of research into Sojourn before contacting you (Sojourn) ; and based on that research and my own experience, I could not be happier. JG USA.
