Spectacular Greece June 2015

4.0

Spectacular Greece with Island Cruise

Great trip, enjoyed islands and historical/archaeological wonders of Greece. No complaints re ship, hotels, food - all good value. Guides Granville Lee-Warner (cruise) and Militsa Pechlivanidou (land) were very caring and passionate about Greece. Only downside was that the information given by Militsa was too in-depth and unremitting for a tourist. She is a lovely person and her knowledge base was vast, but on the coach we needed some downtime! Seeing so much of Greece understandably required being on the move but we felt it was too rushed. Would still recommend SmarTours for value and efficiency. Read more

Spectacular Greece with Island Cruise

The tour director was the best we have had (Granville Lee Warner) and though he didn't do the land tour, Elena wasn't far behind. They made their love of Greece come alive.

The best of Turkey July 2017

4.0

Highlights of Turkey

A diverse trip, packed with lots of places to see over 2 weeks, yet it didn't
feel too rushed and we had more free time than I have had on other similar
holidays.
Too many to mention but Capadoccia, Ephesus and the underground city at
Derinkuyu were all highlights. Istanbul is fascinating, with plenty to see
and do and the hotel in Cunda was especially nice, with dinner on a private
jetty.


Fatih Develi was knowledgeable, calm and professional and went out of his way
to arrange different things for us to see on the way, including a wine
tasting, which everyone really enjoyed. He is passionate about his country
and knows so much about its history and culture, there wasn't a question he
couldn't answer - and we put him to the test!! We couldn't have asked for a
better guide and our driver Mustafa was great too, always with a ready smile
and there were some long drives.


Spend extra time in Istanbul at the end of the holiday if you can, as there
is so much to see there - a boat trip is definitely worth doing. Pack a good
mix of clothes - in early September, it was hotter than expected, so take
some things to layer up. A spare battery for your camera is also a good idea,
one I wish I had had when my camera died while at Ephesus!


Consider a change of hotel in Istanbul - all the hotels were good, but the
Istanbul choice was probably everyone's least favourite. It would also be
nice to go to more authentic Turkish restaurants in the evening, but
depending on where you are, this is not always possible.

HIGHLIGHTS OF TURKEY August 2016

Highlights of Turkey

You do lot traveling but see so much turkey off tourist track but be prepared for some tourist bits september 2011. such variety if you into roman stuff holiday for you. only thought in danger over developing best bits
Balloon flight over Cappadocia mountanis that was amazing but not cheap whole area is great. but experince of life time event. Troy was susurprising good and istanbul Hagia sofia  is terrific  . aspensis theater intact was amazing. Ephesus is all cracked up to be. but hotel in kusadsi is so un exodus it felt I was on package holiday it was no good and hotel in istabunal could been better but hotel in old antalya was amazing owner was charecter  to

our leader was great very helpful driver was great glad i did not drive into Istabunal on peak friday night traffic it was experince . gave us bags advice which we took for most eating places and they were spot on. although want hassle can fine few resturant of your own. take boat trip when in Antalya is worth it but go on  small one and haggle as they lower price lot and do not beleive big group coming on as they never appear when he told us . when went on boat ride in istabunal do not let unknown person lead towards boat that did not exist. as i was not happy and did not go telling others not to. which in end they did not

makes sure got money for water as you drink lot there. do not leave anything valuable in your case as one bags was looked through. someone had camera stolen on tram in istabunal so keep all items hiden and tied to belt or yourself

Its amazing huge and friendly country. people nice . just be careful in cities as cities any where can be dangerous.
in danger of over developing west will exodus do east as that not as developed. we been with exodus 3 times and hoope to go on another when we can afford it
