Just arrived in Shiraz, Iran. I didn't want any more time to pass before thanking you for making our stay in Istanbul so wonderful. You arranged everything perfectly for us, including my marvelous tour of the Biennial this afternoon with a guide named Bora. I highly recommend him.

Larry, Renee and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the two days spent with Yavuz. No one is better at explaining, interpreting and highlighting the best of your beautiful city.

Our meals were delicious. The hotel was excellent and in a terrific location. I'm sure I will think of more to say when I'm coherent but I look forward to returning to Istanbul with Credo Tours!!!!

Thank you.
All best,

I want to thank you for organizing our stay in Istanbul. We enjoyed seeing many of the sites we had visited on previous visits as well as several new ones which you suggested. Our guide, Etem, was just terrific – knowledgeable, organized and so well-informed. Thank you for putting us together with him – he was a real pleasure.
I did want to comment about the Morgan – it was perfectly pleasant but I would give it a “B” grade. The room was quite small (I know we did trade down from the room you originally booked for us) and the bathroom layout was very inconvenient. The food service – one dinner and three breakfasts – was very good so no complaints there. While we liked the neighborhood – which is clearly on the upswing – the hotel is situated on a very busy street which makes stopping to pick up and discharge passengers very difficult because of the traffic. Otherwise, no complaints!
It was a pleasure meeting you at lunch and we thank you again for making our stay in Istanbul such a pleasant experience. When we have friends who want to come to Turkey – and I hope there will be many – and be in the best of hands to organize their visit, we will certainly recommend they put themselves in yours.  
Best regards...

My friends and I had an absolutely fantastic 6 days in Istanbul. We wish we could have stayed longer. There were so many highlights - it will remain a highly memorable experience for the rest of our days.

On behalf of my friends (Neil, John, Mirko and Rory) I would like to thank Nazli so much for being such an excellent guide on our tour of the Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. Not only was she highly informative about those key sites but she gave us so much more interesting information about the history, culture, politics etc.. of Istanbul and Turkey in general. She was extremely patient and tolerant of our endless questions and put up with our English ‘humour’ very well too. We were very pleased at her recommendation to have lunch at the famous “Pudding Shop’ which was yet another highlight.

Please pass on our personal thanks and appreciation to Nazli for being such a great guide.

Based on our experience I’d have no hesitation in highly recommending Credo Tours to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Very best wishes.

We did not know what to expect in Istanbul and were delighted and thrilled with our tour guide, Esra, who was arranged for us by Sirma, owner and operator of Credo Tours. The organization and pickups were punctual, seamless and tailored to our complete enjoyment over two days. Perfect itinerary seeing all the highlights and local lifestyle. Very glad to have been recommended to you, Sirma. Esra is a Turkish gem. Many thanks. James & Elizabeth Wong, Sydney, Australia

We were a group of 9 including 2 teenagers and 3 kids looking to visit Istanbul and the Bosphorus. We reached out to many companies but the service we got from Ezgi and how quickly she answered our questions and built the perfect itinerary for us is why we decided to book with them. Our guide Adnan knew the city and attractions and even modify our scheduled when the lines at the Blue Mosque were too long, he was amazing with the kids and made them love discovering the history of Istanbul, when then went to a fantastic restaurant for some Kebab and the quickly hit the spice market to the cruise the Bosphorus on a private yacht. This was a once in a life time experience and thank Adnan for such an amazing day! Marc Giroux, Montreal, Canada

We were a group of 9 Australians visiting Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus and Pergamum. Ezgi Beyhan from Credo Tours organized our 11 days which included hotel accommodation, sight visits, guides, food and all internal travel. Her attention to detail was superb and far beyond expectations. She is fluent in English and so are her guides. In addition she organized personal (non tourist) visits to private homes for both lunch and dinner so we experienced Turkey in a more personal way. I am already planning a second visit to Turkey in the future and of course will be working with Ezgi. Priscilla Campbell, Sydney, Australia

Thanks so much to Ezgi and our guides for a tremendous time in Turkey! Our two-week trip was flawless - our guides were incredibly knowledgeable, open, and amazingly hospitable. Credo's planning was perfect from lodging to restaurants to sites. We will definitely be back and look forward to working with Credo again. Kristin Bradburry, San Francisco, USA

I just arrived back in France and wanted to let you know what a wonderful trip Kristin, my dad and I had in Turkey. We didn't want to leave!! Thank you so much for your involvement in making our trip so great, everything went so smoothly, the guides were all incredibly informative and nice, the hotels and restaurants were more than great. My dad was genuinely touched by the birthday surprises you organised -- we were all totally surprised last night when the restaurant brought out a special dessert for him! It was a real pleasure to meet you in Istanbul and I wish you the very best for the future. Please get in touch if you ever plan to visit Montpellier; I definitely hope to come back to Turkey one day. Kristin is planning to send you some pictures when she gets back to the US.

Again, thanks so much for everything.

Take care,
