An enjoyable & educational experience with a wonderful group of fellow travelers. Gallipoli held a special significance for me and I am very grateful for the assistance that Kivanc gave me during the time we spent there.
David Stodart, 19, New Zealand
Overall a great package of highly interesting places. Tour guide was a remarkable source of local history and knowledge. Always providing essential information throughout the trip. Well done Arzu.
Jan Blyton, 56, British
Being a driver/guide myself, I feel Kivanc & Ali is an asset to industry. I have been given of a lifetime. Would like to say THANK YOU to the guys. They both have set the bar so high and I have not only learnt about Turkey but a level of guideship. It is been an honour!!!
Charlie Gouveia, 29, Portuguese
Wonderful tour guide and driver – really introduced us to the true culture of Turkey and Suat went out of his way to give us an authentic cultural experience.
Laura Wakelam, 27, Australian
Davut really made the tour amazing – he has excellent local knowledge and I always felt safe & comfortable that he knew what he was doing. Excellent food recommendation & always gave good ideas around things to do.
Kirstin O’Connor, 24, New Zealand
Davut was an excellent guide who is extremely knowledgeable & helpful. Ibrahim (our driver) was pleasant and a safe driver. It would have been nice to spend more time in certain places, but then more days would need to be added! Overall from the booking of our tour to final destination, this introduction to Turkey was an unforgettable experience!
Sapna Chawla, 35, Canadian
Gurkan was always helpful, informative and patient. Shared lots of information about Turkey and its people. Thank you for showing me Turkey.

Big thanks to Gurkan, it was much appreciated by us that he could take us to Helles Memorial where I have a great great grandfather who was killed in action in WW1.

This was my second time in Turkey – still love it here. Gulgun was a great guide, very knowledgable, efficient and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience. Her organization skills were awesome!
Sarah Amber, 34, Australian
This tour went way beyond what we expected. Thank you Davut for your expertise and humour. The driver was excellent with a great sense of humour. Davut went out of his way to make this tour exceptional. I would love to do a Fez Tour again in the future.
Shelly Draga, 55, New Zealand
For first trip overseas I was quite nervous. I have had the best experience and have felt very comfortable and safe each part of the journey. Our guide and bus driver have made it such a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to travel again.
Leeonie Gray, 38, Australian
The tour was excellent, everything was well above what I expected. Our guide and driver were first class and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Well done Fez Travel.

Tom and Robyn Brennen
I've never written positive feedback but I was so impressed with my Tour Guide (Kivanc) and Driver (Veysel) that I felt compelled to write to you.
Ben Howard Australian 30
Perihan is a lovely young lady who made our trip fun. She has a good historical knowledge. She was always happy to answer questions and helped us in any way she could. The small size of our tour was great and made getting around the sights very easy. Well done Perihan we enjoyed our trip very much.
Charlotte Harris, 55, New Zealand
Very good value for money. Peri did a very good job – helpful, efficient and good fun. I enjoyed the small group ‘family’ atmosphere. A well designed tour – well paced, visited some great places, good standard of accommodation and food.
Robin Harris, 55, New Zealand
Fantastic trip – Kivanc was awesome, taking us to the listed places and many more so that we experienced Turkish life as much as possible. It was Kivanc that made this trip from standard tour to great Turkish experience! Thanks heaps.
Christopher Steenstra, 27, New Zealand
The Fez Turkey Shoestring tour was fantastic and I would recommend it to any of my friends. The country was beautiful, and the trip had the perfect mix of cultural sites (e. g. Gallipoli, Troy, Ephesus, Pammukkale etc) and relaxing (e. g. Olympos and boat cruise). Our guide, Gonca, and bus driver, Tansl, were incredable, always helping us out and making me feel confident as a solo traveller. Also the accomodation really surprised me, being amazing hotels with great breakfast spreads. It was definately a highlight of my last four months in Europe, thankyou.
Briana Wingfield Australian 23
You may recall exchanging emails back in Feb as you assisted us with the organization of our Fez tour. As you mentioned April is a good time to visit Turkey, and it certainly proved so. The tour was excellent in every way. We have already passed on our thanks to John our guide, his organization and knowledge were first rate. Our bus driver Adam was very helpful and courteous. Once again thank you for helping us through the process, we will highly recommend Fez tours to others.
Barry & Bev Melven Australian 68 & 70
I wanted to let you know that Marija and I had an amazing trip in Turkey and wanted to thank you personally for your efforts and preparation leading up to the trip.
I would like to thank you for a wonderful tour to Gallipoli and Troy. The accommodation was outstanding and your guides and drivers were fantastic. I enjoyed myself completely, enjoyed the great Turkish hospitality as well as your countries wonderful sights. I will gladly recommend your tour to all of my Australian friends.
I recently traveled to Turkey and took up a 4 day tour of Istanbul, Gallipoli and Troy with Fez Travel. For anyone who is wanting to travel to Troy and/or Gallipoli (now known as Anzac Cove), I highly recommend contacting the Fez Travel people and taking up one of the many tours they have available for seeing Istanbul, Anzac Cove and Troy.
Tanya M Sydney, Australia
The Turkey Trip was fantastic, we really had a great time and enjoyed it very much.
Ken and Edna
We accepted the Lonely Planet Guide Book's recommendation of Fez Travel's five day Aegean Trooper Tour. We found the tour's value, itinerary and pace, guide and driver professionalism, standard of transport and accommodation to be comparable with Insight and Trafalgar tours we've experienced previously.
Warren & Suzanne Gribble, Melbourne
The Egypt tour has been great and live felt completely safe for the entre trip. Most people have been very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a great trip!
Claire, Australian, 25
Gonca was a great tour guide. Very friendly, informative and went out her way to ensure we got the best out of our trip!
Racheal Houston, New Zealand, 30
I really enjoyed the tour. Plenty of acitivities to choose from and also a good mix of down time. Friendly and very helpful Tour Guide.
Vicki Cave, Australian, 32
This trip with Fez was one of our best! We began in Capadocia headed south East then along the Armenian and Georgian borders ending up in Trabzon in the North by the Black Sea. Highlights so many where do you start! Mt Nemrut just awesome, Beehive houses, Abraham's Cave and the pool of Carp at Sanliurfa. The vast lake of Van just amazing, Isak Pasa Palace, Sumela monastery in Trabzon an absolute must. Ataturk's Residence a must see also. I have to say my most memorable moment was in Mardin where we ate a foodies delight overlooking the vast Mesapotanian plains, This was just unforgetable all those colours just a large WOW factor! also here was the Monastery of Deyrul Zafaran a must see(look it up it was awesome) I can on and on!!! the countryside is very diverse a wow factor in itself! The people are so friendly not too much English spoken but that was Ok our tour guide was there and he was just fantastic can't say enough about him ( it was like travelling with your son) very informative and knowledgable. Shopping was something else on this side it is cheaper than the more touristy West side so of course we had a ball. All we can say is Thanks FEZ once again for a memorable trip back in May 2012 for more.
In all our years of travel my friend and I have never had so much fun as we did with Fez. From Hayden our tour guide to the Fez crew, accomodation etc we give 10/10. The whole package was well put together. Highlights were our time at Kadirs tree houses awesome place, Saklikent Gorge, Fethiye, Kas and love kusadasi also can't say enough about our experience sleeping in a cave at cappadocia, Swimming in the torquise waters on the coastline was breath taking water so crystal clear. Not finished with Turkey yet. We have been all over the West Coast now our hearts lie checking out the Eastern Part of Turkey and up through the centre once more can't wait and am sooo looking forward to Fez's hospitality once again. So if you are a young 50 something like myself you must experience Fez it's not JUST A TOUR it's A LIFE EXPERIENCE. YA GOTTA DO IT! Thanks Fez.
The highlight for me was anzac cove, the group was a real mix with people form all over the world mostly australians ranging form early 20's to mid 50's but it was a really great mix , the tour cover a large area of turkey with a real mix free time and activities, i went a week after peak season so you could really haggle at the markets and still very busy was less crowed which help to make it a great trip i would highly recommened it.

We recently took a tour of Anzac Cove with Fez travel, it was a fantastic day out and I would reccommend this tour to anybody. We were a bit wary at first because our guide was an old Turkish guy but he turned out to be one of the best tour guides we have ever had!
Bugbitten - Luke_n_Sal
Turkey was absolutely awesome!!!!!! We spent only 2 weeks here unfortunately and had a great time exploring as much as possible. Starting in Istanbul then heading to Gallipoli, Troy and Kusadasi using FEZ Travel. FEZ are definitely a must if heading this way. Kusadasi was beautiful and on the water, we then used local buses to head to Pamukkale then down to Fethiye were we hopped on a Blue Cruise for 4 days. This included 3 nights and 4 days of relaxing, swimming and eating. Next was Olympos were chilling is a must. 2 days here wasn't enough. we actually extended and decided to fly from Antalya back to Istanbul rather than kill ourselves on a 14hr bus trip. Gozleme is a local pancake type thing which is cheap and cheerful. all the food was tasty. but the aftermath and the squirts were part of it.
Bugbitten - dionverzeletti
Thougtful tour guide who was there to please us did not use mobile phone excessively unlike a few we have experienced.
Andrew Meler, Australian, 59
We had a fabulous tour with great service from our guide and driver. We found your company excellent to deal with when we were organising our considering travelling here.
Rosemary Eden, 46, New Zealand
Our tour guide was exceptional in many ways, an excelent choice. She made our journey informative, interesting and fun as well. She is a real embassador for Turkey. The company, Fez Travel, is furtunate she works for them. Our driver was first class as well. He looked after our luggage, drove safely and was pleasant.
Sally Holmes, Australian
My first experince of organised tour journey as usually travel independently, very enjoyable. Found Turkey has many surpusies, not what I expected really. Pleasantly suprised.
Mrs.Wendy Courtney, 51, New Zealand
This was the first tour I have done on my travels and I would reccommend it to anyone comning to Turkey. We covered more than I could have covered on my own and the tour guide was brilliant.,
Anna Lawrance, Australian, 27
Great to travel in a smaller group. Please maintain less than 20 people on the group. It makes for a better more informative tour with better chance to see hear guide and meet tour group.
Mrs.Rebecca Proffitt, New Zealand, 31
Our priver guide were a super ‘s team. Can Bulut has the prefect balance between not too much information all the time nixed with useful information at the right time.

Thanks for a fantastic experience in Egypt. It has exceeded my expectations by for and I have really enjoyed my time here! Thanks Tommy for making the tour what it was. I have felt safe from start to finish of this tour and have appreciated all the cultural and historical information that has been given to us. I will most definitely be recommending Fez in the future and wish you ever success in the future! Thanks.
Roben Marrie, Australian, 21
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a a wonderful put together tour. The sights we have seen will remain with me forever. The ‘’ side trips’’ like the walk in the gorge the swim in the Blue Lagoon. The lunch in the Greek village etc were pleasant surprises. Initially we thought we would free travel in Turkey but we would have missed so many sights. The information in regards to culture, history and customs were especially interesting. Can is a well information tour leader. He calmly kept us all together and was extemely caring. We had three Young children on our tour and he was excellent with them. Hopefully we return to your beautiful country in the near future.
Mrs.Bronwyn, New Zealand, 55
I really enjoyed the trip. Troy, Pergamum, Ephesus the gulet trip were some of the highlights. Elif at guide, is really great. She is very knowledgeable about Turkey and we learned a lot of from her. Our driver is also pretty great a really good dinner.
Lizelle Van Jaarsveld, South Afrıcan, 33
Gallipoli-Canakkale:This was made excellent by the knowledge of our quide (ie Turkish History). Pergamum-Ephuses:Loved our tours to all the ancient sites again the knowledge of our guide. His ability to take us an a path away from the bulk of the other bus tour groups so we felt we had the place to our selves or got to see the areas away from the track. Fethiye-Olympos:Loved our small group the opportunity to just explore. We went fishing and had beers! Awsome? Everyone should do it!
Natasha Banville, Australıan, 26
Excellent quide who was vey friendly , considerate and willing to answer many silly questions.
Bev Howell, Australian, 45
This trip has been excellent. So many highlights including Cappadocia and Fethiye due to the small group size the tour has been so flexible around our wants and budgets. The tour guide was excellent. He made the tour extremely enjoyable. No suggestions. Loved it.
Amanda Hurley, Australian, 24
Overall the trip was incredible. Thanks you! After doing the gulet I wished I had 2 nights in Olympos so I could have done some of the activities there. Great trip. Great guide!
Alison Baird, American, 30
Very enjoyable trip. Tour guidewas always willing to help and made the effort to accomodate everyone. Highlights include 12 island cruisea and hot air balon. Most activities were also very interesting and look foward to visiting Turkey again in the future.
Blagojce Gyakovski, Australian, 35
The highlights of my trip were the optional 12 island day cruise, Pamukkale and Olympos. I loved my stay in Olympos. It was a great set out and lovely feel to it. I felt a bit rushed with some of the activities where I wish I had time to take it all in. Oh, and the optional Turkish evening was great! Overall I really enjoyed my trip and I will definitely travel with Fez Travel again.
Jenna, South African, 18
The tour was fantastic. I made some wonderful friends my tour guide Gonca and driver Behcet were wonderful and I’ll think of them as Family. The gulet is the highlight of my trip but I did enjoy all of it very much.
Kathryn Prohoroff, Australian, 29
The shoestring Turkey tour was fantastic! A great itinerary amazing daily tour options and super friendly, knowledgeable guides.

Janet Poe, Australian, 71
I really enjoyed this tour even in the down season, everything is very beautiful and people are friendly. Perhaps it needs to be clear to bring swimming clothes as 2 of 3 of us didin’t know it was needed.
Charissa Mcdonald, New Zealand, 35
The fact that your tour only take small groups was excellent, everbody plus guide , all people from far, wide got together as a group, enjoyed all. Thank you.
Mariyn Fıeld, Australıan, 67
The tour was woderful. Ahmet was very knowledgabile and could answer all of our questions. The time travelling on the bus gave us the chance to see the countryside, agriculture and villages of Turkey. It would be great to visit or stay in Bergama. The hotel in Kusadasi was great, as we could walk in to town.
Nicole Cowlishaw, Australian, 31
Thank you for a most memorable tour. I enjoyed the smaller gruop and appreciated professional service from everyone. Turkey was very kind. Thank you for sharing your culture. I have worked very hard to visit Turkey and I am happy that I was able to see this land (and it’s people) from it’s history to today. Please take care so that many more visitors may enjoy as well.

A very good value for money tour. The relatively small group was great. The guide and the driver made the tour very enjoyable, entertaining and information. We really enjoyableour time in Turkey!
Mr.Greg Kerr, Australian, 59

Mrs.Jodie Frogley, Australian, 24
Canbulut was a fantastic guide! Extremely knowledgable, patient and good fun. Adem was a great driver and felt very safe with him behind the wheel, we managed to see a few things not on the itinerary wich made our tour very special. Overall it was a wonderful tour!

This has been an experince that I will remember for a long long time. It has been all that I hoped for and more. Excellent guiding enabled us to see and experience Turkey as much as ı had hoped for.
Mr.Douglas Fıtzsımons, New Zealand, 60
The highlight of the trip was by far the four days we spent sailing from Marmaris to Fethiye. It was a fantastic way to relax and the crew totally looked after us with wonderful food and great spots to stop. A must is the sailing - we had fantastic weather.
Recommended to any age group. Had a great time might even do it again!
I took one of your budget tours last year in May. Our tour guide was Adi. He did an amazing job. He was very patient with some of the more irritating customers, and never lost his temper. I loved Turkey, and had a great time!
