“6 Day Istanbul Ephesus Pamukkale Tours”

5.0/5

My husband and I did the 6 day Istanbul Ephesus Pamukkale tour organized by Mr. Mustapha Ceviz. The trip was very well organized from pick-up at the airport on the 11th May till drop-off on the 16th May.
We stayed at the Askoc Hotel in Istanbul which had a wonderful location close to everything in the old European side with a beautiful view. However, I would recommend you upgrade to the 5 star option if you are particular about the hotel. Shower on the last night had a bit of mould and the shower head wasn't functional. No tea and coffee provided in rooms you need to upgrade for that but there are many little coffee shops close by. The breakfast was decent though.
We stayed at the Ilayda Avant-garde In Kusadasi which was brilliant. Make sure to request upgrade to sea view when booking the room it is well worth it. Wish we had stayed longer.
The tours in Istanbul are very well organized and value for money and you get a lot done during the day tours.
In Pamukkale before lunch you stop at an onyx factory and they also claim to sell zultanite jewelry, but upon further research it's generally colour changing glass if you don't get an authenticity certificate which we didn't. At EUR60 I'll write it off as costume jewelry, but to avoid disappointment get your zultanite at a reputed jeweler with certification.

I've given a 5 star rating to the tour because it was REALLY well coordinated. We had a brilliant time and Mr. Ceviz is always available if you have any queries and I'm definitely planning another vacation through Land of Civilization as I would love to do Cappadocia some time.

“Istanbul-Ephesus-Pamukkale 6 Days/5 Night”

5.0/5

We only had 1 week to prepare our trip to Turkey and we were fortunate to have stumbled onto Mr Mustafa Ceviz's travel website on the internet....everything was "no problem". He responded to our emails promptly. He organized everything including transfers to hotels and airports, travel to all the sites including domestic flights. When we were there, he made sure, without intruding on our privacy, that we were on track for our entire 6 days we were in Turkey. We covered enough attractions for the days we were there. Though it wasn't too cold, we do recommend an umbrella or light rain coat, as the tours still went ahead in rainy weather. Turkey has a lot to offer and we hope to return for another visit. We would definitely use The Land of Civilizations Travel again.

“A Wonder Experience”

5.0/5

We booked our 6 day tour through Mr. Mustafa Ceviz from "Land of Civilizations Travel". Mr. Mustafa customized the places and duration of the stay according to what we wanted to see. He also booked the balloon ride for one of the days in Cappadocia which was much lower price than what we found on the websites of balloon companies. All things were arranged and done quite professionally. I would say the price was quite reasonable for the services delivered and would recommend them. He does use local tour operators for daily sightseeing and arranges transportation between places. You should be aware all these sightseeing tour operators take you to commercial places hoping you buy something, rushing through some of the important places.
