On this trip to Turkey we decided to do more sight seeing. we chose Ada vegas travel and were delighted that we did.we had the perfect trip through Turkey.we felt that we really saw the highlights and the pace allowed us to see a lot in a week. The guides in Istanbul were knowledgeable and allowed us to skip the long lines at the major sites.we saw and learned so much. our evenings were our own, but we did get lots of suggestions from our guides Saban and Elif. we loved Istanbul and were sorry to only have 3 days there.
On to Cappadocia to see the fairy chimneys, enjoy the local restaurants and stay in a wonderful cave hotel.Our hot air balloon ride was the highlight of this stop. The pilot, Hakki Yildiz, was amazing. Everything was perfectly timed and our guide was understanding of our time and energy levels. We were delivered right on time for our flight to Izmir.
In Izmir we toured Ephesus with Ilker Avci , a wonderful young man with great english, he has a fun , likeable personality. He was great fun, taking us to lunch at a great restaurant in a shaded garden in the country. we did a day sail along the coast and had wonderful weather.
With Ada vegas , Yuksels programme and planning were spot on and we can not thank him enough for his willingness to make changes and accommodate us.Yuksel and his guides were great and we highly recommend using them if you plan a trip to Turkey.
Every driver, every transfer, every flight, every hotel was taken care of. We only had to show up and enjoy!!! Thank you Ada vegas travel.

Viaje a Turquia, Totalmente recomendables!
Me dio mucho gusto haber escogido esta agencia para mi primer viaje a Turquía. Desde el momento en que los contacté me brindaron la confianza y la tranquilidad que hicieron la diferencia con respecto a las otras agencias de viaje que había consultado antes. El trato es personal, amigable, profesional, dispuestos siempre a responder todas tus dudas. Organizaron mi viaje y tours en función a los días de viaje que yo tenia disponible. Se encargaron de los traslados, vuelos, hoteles y tours sin ningún contratiempo, super puntuales. Los guías en Istanbul, Capadocia, y Pamukkale muy amables y bien preparados. Mi agradecimiento especial a Neraida y Yuksel, por toda la asistencia, coordinación y dedicación para que todo estuviera bien en mi viaje.
Turquía es un destino al que sin duda voy a regresar, y es gracias a la experiencia que tuve con Ada vegas Travel.

Best Tour of Turkey with Ada Vegas Travel !!
This was our second experience using Adavegas travel in Turkey, the first time on a tour in 2010, so this is a well established tour company. Yuksel provided us with several services on this trip to Istanbul. We were a party of 13 arriving on two different flights so he scheduled transfers from the Istanbul airport to our hotel in the Old City of Sultanahmet. Since we were boarding a cruise ship on the first full day of our stay in Istanbul, we scheduled a 1/2 day tour in the morning from our hotel to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and then were dropped off at the cruise terminal along with our luggage. The next morning we were picked up at the cruise terminal and we toured the Roman Cisterns and Topkapi Palace. Again this was a 1/2 day tour. Yuksel was not available to conduct the tour but his colleague Selin was excellent and very informative.

The only shortcoming is that payment had to be made with U.S. dollars which required me to carry a lot more cash than I usually do on international trips. Our tour guide obtained all tickets for the sites and museums and I reimbursed her using Turkish lira I obtained at a bank ATM. Of note is that licensed tour guides in Turkey have priority and we did not have to wait in any lines to enter any site.
Our second time in Turkey been great too, i already thanked to adavegas travel team and Yuksel.

We will be visiting Turkey in 2017 and plan on contacting Adavegas travel again.

Our group went on a private 12 day trip again in Turkey having used ADA VEGAS TRAVEL online previously and wanting the same trip again we connected them online and got the same great service as we did before.

Day 1,2 and 3: Istanbul. Sura Hagia Sophia hotel.Best location of istanbul old city, next to Blue Mosque and Topkapi Place and a short distance to the Bazars. lots of eating places nearby. Rooms were superb and BF was more than adequate. Our tour guide was well informed and perfect English spoken. We also had a private boat tour of Bhosphorous, and it was great.

Day 4: Our bus with our guide arrived. We went to Canakkale across Marmara Sea. Stayed at Kolin Hotel. Excellent buffet dinner and comfortable rooms.

Day 5 & 6: Visit Troy, Pergamon and stayed in Kusadasi. We moved on the Ephesus, another great site. Elif had arranged for excellent lunches and gave a great presentation of the archaeological features of the sites.

Day 7: Stayed at Pamukkale, after visiting Aphrodisias and the thermals. The hotel and food were excellent.

Day 8. Moved on to Antalya, with a private boat tour in the Mediterranean waters. We stayed at Ramada Place and it was very good.

Day 9. We started moving inland, towards Konya. We visited to caravan places on the silk road, a smaller version of Blue Mosque and tile museum. The Dedeman Hotel was great, but the roof top and The food was mouth watering.

Day 10 & 11: Cappadoccia. We stayed at the MDC Cave Hotel, and this is truly a unique Hotel and a sight to experience. Each room is different and the entire group spent a great deal of time exchanging views of each other’s rooms. The BF was great. We also went to Cave Cities, early morning balloon ride (highly recommended), formations, belly dancing and whirling dervish (were less impressed). The hotel was excellent.

Day 12: Visited the archaeological museum in Ankara, and had lunch at a new restaurant and returned to Istanbul.
Best part of the tour: our friendly, well informed and articulate tour guide, mrs Elif . She arranged for lunches at special local restaurants and paid special attention to the needs of the group.

Umut from ADA VEGAS TRAVEL did a great job of coordinating all arrangements.
Our driver Hussain was safe, careful and considerate throughout.
Will use Adavegas again if I get another group of people to travel to Turkey.
Thank you Adavegas Travel!

I truly recommend it

Best tours in Turkey
Excursions in Turkey by Ada Vegas Travel! After very successful private tours in Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Rome, Venice and Barcelona, my wife and I decided that to fully enjoy Turkey we needed a private guide for our 2015 trip. I began email exchanges with Ilkay Candar last winter and he developed an itinerary that covered 3 regions with all the domestic flights and hotels. He was very accommodating and answered all of my questions. We wanted top accommodation for our Instanbul leg. Confirming and down payment were smooth.

Our first guide was Mr Saban in Istanbul. I can’t say enough positive things about him. We saw all the sights at the right times to avoid cruise ship lines, ate at great places he recommended, shopped at quality places in the markets with some negotiating help, all at a pace tailored to our wishes. Always on time, always pleasant and informative. Perfect English.

Next up was Serkan in the Cappadocia region. Unfortunately our hot air balloon ride was canceled due to winds (not the tour’s fault…and they credited our account for the cost) but Serkan took us to so many fascinating places on the ground that it didn’t really matter. Underground city, churches carved into the rocks, amazing scenery….Teriffic food recommendations. Really a wonderful part of the country.

Then to the coast and the ruins at Ephesus and other sites. Our central base was in a costal town and our guide was Mehmet. Another great one… The driver was amazing, negotiating mountain turns and finding city shortcuts with his Mercedes van. More great food, and a reasonable schedule that gave us afternoon down time to relax after trooping through the amazing ruins. We’ve been to Rome….the Turkish Roman ruins are much better preserved (and were not canibalized to build the Vatican).

Then it was back to Istanbul for an overnight to Gallipoli and Troy, again with Mehmet. We stayed in Edirne and enjoyed two beautiful mosques and a medical museum the next day before driving back to Istanbul for a free day before returning home.

All of the hotel arrangements, drivers, and details of the trip went perfectly. We wanted to leave some of our luggage in Istanbul after the first leg and they took care of it…one of the little great moments that makes travel so wonderful were the big smiles on the faces of the guys who were storing the luggage for us when they brought it to our van after arriving in Istanbul. We stayed in touch with Ilkay and Yuksel during all of the tour and made some adjustments as we went along.

Besides seeing all the sites in our tour I feel that we learned so much about Turkey, its history and people. We cames at the end of Ramadan and all of our guides were happy to tell us about Islam and explain the details of the mosques we visited. And they were very knowledgable about the Christian and Jewish sites we visted as well. Friends who have been to Turkey raved about the people and loved the country….they were right. Visit Turkey for sure….and hire Ada Vegas Travel to make your trip as memorable as ours.

Best Tour of Turkey
We found this Turkish Tour Company (Ada Vegas Travel) online, while searching for tours of Turkey.
I contacted them by email, back in May, inquiring about their services. The next day I received an email from Mr Savas, explaining their services and their credentials.

Two days later, I received another email. This time from Mr Umut. He explained in details their services and vacation packages. When I told him that we were going to spend 1 week in Istanbul, prior to going to Bodrum, he even offered his help
in finding a suitable hotel for us there.

I haven’t booked our vacation to Bodrum from the states. Upon arriving in Istanbul, we went to Ada Vegas Travel offices to book our All our excursions in person.

There, we were greeted by the Manager of the company, who showed us to Umut office.

I have to say that I was impressed by Umut’s hospitality and his eagerness to make our vacation a memorable one. He had 4 of his agents working on making all the necessary reservations for our vacation, plane, hotel , attraction tours, while Umut himself tried to find out what tours would we enjoy most and all the while entertaining us with drinks of our choice. He even treated us to lunch while his agents we scrambling to put our package together, as we wanted to leave for Bodrum the next day. After a few hours of real hard work of all the staff involved, our vacation was booked.
The next day, Umut sent an Private VAN to pick us up and take us to the airport. The same thing happened at the Bodrum airport, the driver and the VAN were waiting for us to take us to the hotel.
At the hotel, our room was overlooking the pool and the ocean – BREATHTAKING VIEW -.
Everyday, Umut would call us to confirm the next day’s tour and the pickup time. All the tours we had
were private tours-just for us. The drivers/guides were very professional and knowledgable about the attractions.
Umut has put together an unforgettable vacation for us. The best money I have ever spent!!!Thank you very much, Umut, Savas and Necdet , for everything!!!
I will definitely recommend ‘ ADA VEGAS TRAVEL ‘ to all who are planning to visit Turkey.

“Simply the best tour company I’ve dealt with ”

If you are looking for a tailored tour to turkey with the most courteous and friendly service, then Ada Vegas Travel is the place for you! Yuksel and Umut have been so helpful from allowing me to tailor my trip to suit my wishes to providing a seamless and perfectly organised holiday.

The tour was perfectly organised that I didn’t have to worry about anything. The guys were able to respond to any query quickly and easily! I can’t recommend these guys more highly!
