"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
