I want to send a special thank you for your wonderful service on our tour of Istanbul. Our guide and driver Ersin Firat, made our time in Istanbul entertaining, informative and exciting. Ersin was wonderful with my elderly sister and brother-in-law making them very comfortable. I loved your very busy city and was enlightened by all the historical information Ersin provided. I am so happy I chose your service and will be happy to give the information of Samyeli Travel and Ersin Firat to my travel agent and i will make a note on trip adviser.

188-) ***** Dear Mr Dagdelen
I have been wanting to write to you to say how much we enjoyed our tour with your colleague Yuksel (I hope I have the spelling right?).
As well as being very knowledgeable, he was warm and friendly, and there is no doubt that his great attitude enhanced our day out in Ephesus.
Our driver, too, was excellent. His driving skills we took for granted, but he also, like Yuksel, had a great demeanor, and his warmth contributed greatly towards the general and overall enjoyment of our excursion.
Please pass our greetings and thanks on to them again.
I conclusion, I should also say that I will most certainly recommend Samyeli to any friends who may in the future want or need such a service in Turkey.
Thanks and regards,

We would like to make some comments.
Ephesus was the highlight of our trip. All of us were amazed at Turkey and hope to return soon to see more of your country. Our tour guide, Nessi, was amazing. She arrived promptly and had us en route to our first stop in no time at all. She was so knowledgeable about the history and very informative about everywhere we toured as well as other areas of Turkey. We were especially impressed by Ephesus and the House of Mary. The ruins were really something to see. We also had a wonderful lunch with great hosts and great food that was recommended by our guide. We already look forward to returning and visiting again as there was so much to see, friendly people, and a wonderful guide. We have already recommended this area to many of our friends and have recommended your tour company as well. Thank you for a wonderful tour with a lifetime of wonderful memories for our entire family.

184-) ***** Dear Mehmet,
I have been intending to write to you to say how we enjoyed our day out of Kusadasi with your private tour escorted by Yuksel Celik. Yuksel was an excellent guide in all respects. We certainly would recommend him to your Company. He met us at the dock and returned us after the tour. We felt secure with him at all times as he guided us to Ephesus ruins and to Village of Sirince. We are pleased we added this village to our tour to see how the villagers live out of the main City. Yuksel kept up a full commentary during the day in very good spoken English.
We booked your tour off the Internet and we are pleased to say your services were excellent.
Thank you very much.
I would appreciate if you could pass this email onto Yuksel as he was an excellent ambassador for Turkey and your Company.

182-) ***** Dear Mehmet,
Thanks for our two tours of Istanbul and Ephesus this June/ July
At both sites, Istanbul and Kusadasi, your guides and buses were on time for our group of 26.
Both guides were excellent with our Ephesus guide more knowledgeable and interesting as he held a doctorate in Archeology and had studied at Univ of Texas in Austin, Texas.
We will hold the information they imparted for a very long time.
Your tours presented us with excellence and was very cost effective as well in comparison to on board cruise sales which were 10 times the price if calculated individually.
I would recommend your tour to any group wishing to tour your beautiful country of Turkey.

We felt he shared lots of knowledge and was helpful in understanding your culture and the history of Turkey. He was particularly helpful in fitting the tour to our faith and our beliefs. We would recommend your service. Both the driver and the tour guide were very helpful.

I just wanted to thank you again for being such a wonderful tour guide for our family while we visited Turkey. Attached are some photos we took during our visit with you. The kids and I felt that our time with you in Ephesus was the highlight of our vacation and we can't wait to return to see more of Turkey. Thank you so much for your patience with the children and for setting us up with such a wonderful lunch!
All our best to you!!

178-) ***** Mehmet,
Thanks for the hospitality during our visit to Turkey. Samyeli Travel did a great job! We had 4 ports of call with the Navigator of Seas and this was the most enjoyable. The tour guide was standing waiting punctually as we walked off the ship. The van was very comfortable and the guide was very knowledgeable. Ephesus was great but we also liked our visit to Sirince Village and would have liked to have spent more time there.
We will look you up on our next visit to Turkey.
Navigator Of The Seas June 16 "Kusadasi Ephesus Tours"
The 6 of us were very pleased with our private tour of Ephesus.
We had no trouble finding our tour guide when we disembarked from our ship in Kusadasi. And we were very pleased to arrive at Ephesus before all the tour buses.
The guide was knowledgable and easy to understand. There were 6 of us who had met through Cruise Critic. 5 of us wanted to tour the Terrace Houses, which was an additional charge. The guide made an arrangement for the 6th person to meet up with us again without any trouble or waiting. This would have been impossible with a shore excursion.
I recommend your company to other travelers. Excellent value.

We want to say "Thank you" for the excellent trip we recently took. Everything went very well and we were pleased with the transportation and hotels. Bulent Soysal was an exceptional guide and made our trip very enjoyable. It could not have been better and was a trip of a lifetime.
We sincerely thank you,
