The tour of Turkey was amazing

07-Nov-2022

The tour of Turkey was amazing. The itinerary was well thought out with lots of great sites visited and very comfortable accommodation at the end of the day. We always felt very comfortable with our bus driver Oral and were able to spread out on the bus with our small tour. Very important for busy days. Our tour guide Aykut was brilliant. He has great information to share about the sites and Turkey in general, was always cheerful and worked hard to ensure everyone’s needs were met. 5 star :))

Adam Hannant  

Our tour guide was outstanding

13-Nov-2022

Our tour guide, Mohammad Shaarawy, was outstanding. He made us feel safe and kept us informed throughout our trip to Egypt. He taught us so much about Egypt and its history. We feel blessed to have met him and for having him as our guide. Thank you Mohammed. We hope to see you again.🙏🏻🇪🇬 Adam & Laura

What a wonderful experience

26-Oct-2022

What a wonderful experience we have had with Ciconia. Such amazing sights and Turkish experiences - truly unforgettable. And thank goodness for Aykut. Best guide EVER!!! So knowledgeable, patient, thoughtful and absolutely hilarious. We loved every minute with Aykut and the long bus rides would have been very difficult without him on board. BRAVO Aykut

The 11 day Turkey tour is amazing

25-Oct-2022

The 11 day Turkey tour is amazing. Our tour guide looked after us so well, the stories he told of the history and places we visited were the highlights of the tour. The next time I return to Turkey I want him to be the tour guide!!!
