"We enjoyed our stays in Istanbul at both hotels, as well as our experiences at Ephesus and Sirince. The highlight of our trip was our week spent sailing on the Myra. Our crew was wonderful, very attentive to all our needs and handling everything with calm and a sense of humor. We loved the food prepared for us. We will be among the first customers when you publish your cookbook in English! Thank you for guiding us in planning our trip and making it such a memorable experience."

Betsy & David Thompson of the Ellingsen group

"We had the most fabulous holiday. It was everything you said it would be, and so much more. We were all so impressed with the historical aspects of the trip. What a beautiful and interesting country! I speak for our whole crew when I say we fell in love with Leyla, the most amazing guide. With her expansive knowledge - lots of people know facts - she was able to relay information in a truly interesting and intriguing manner coupled with a fantastic personality that was so well suited to our group. As far as our itinerary went there was nary a glitch. Every detail of our great adventure was perfectly timed and ran smoothly. It was truly a trip of a lifetime!."


"The Neyzen company has extended the greatest courtesy, creativity, and genuine friendship we have ever encountered anywhere we have travelled in the world. Every day was an adventure and every meal a culinary surprise and delight."

Danny & Carolyn Dansen

"Excellent service in terms of local history, delightful food and attention to every need. Your professionalism, humour and attention to detail shows why you deserve the highest accolades. You have given us a lifetime memory!."

Ben & Lucie

"We thank you, with the deepest appreciation and gratitude for your services on our vacation. The sojourn was an adventure, an education and so changed our perspective about Turkey. From the muezzin, singing calls to prayer, each with a unique voice, to eating Turkish culinary delights, buying a carpet from a state-run factory in Cappadocia, soaking our weary legs in the Mediterranean Sea, sleeping in a rock cave, taking a surreal balloon ride over the Cappadocia rock formations, driving the coastal roads, walking in the footsteps of 2500 years of history, and exploring a ghost town above your beautiful city of Bodrum… We have wonderful memories of a rich culture that will stay with us forever. As we fly home, know we had the best days of our lives falling in love with your country and with each other."
