4.0/5

This package very nice. I visited Turkey on 18 until 26 April 2017. I went to Istanbul, Kusadasi, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Bursa. All city have wonderful places. Bosphorus cruise with 2 continents very exotic places with aromatic Egyptian spice market.Afterthat fly using domestic flight to Denizli visiting ancient city of Hierapolis...speecless very very spectacular archelogy founded and visit calcium terrace and pools. then go to spectacular main site Ephesus .
But unfortunatelly can not fly using hot ballon because bad weather in Cappadocia... but someday iI will go to Cappadocia again and ride hot ballon this is my hope.
Finnaly I just say... Turkey is the best place in the world to visiting....and the group tour services between city very good coordinate.

“Visit Turkiye Wonderful travel experience”

5.0/5

We had one of the most memorable holidays in TURKEY from 14th October to 26th October 2013 covering Izmir (Ephesus), Pammukale, Fethiye, Antalya, Cappadocia & Istanbul organized by Mr. Mustafa Ceviz as our tour operator under company name 'The Land of Civilizations Travel'. The transport arrangements (land/air) made from his side was great. We all really appreciate the puntuality of the pick ups from airports & hotels. During excursion tours we were with licensed guides with good English who had thorough knowledge of Turkey history, tradition & culture. Also a wonderful experience during hot air balloon ride in Capadocia with experienced pilot Ibrahim Dasdeler. Turkish Lunch (Pottery Kebabs/Ayraan) & delights served during the excusion tours were awesome. Least but not the last its a BIG THANKS to Mr. Mustafa Ceviz in making our holidays the most cheerful & memorable. It was just fantastic. We highly reccommend 'The Land of Civilization' tours & Mr. Mustafa Ceviz.

9 Days Best of Turkey Tour Package Thank you Mustafa Ceviz for the fantastic tour package! Right from the time we stepped into Ataturk airport until we departed everything was well organized. The Istanbul tours / Kapodokya will remain in our hearts for a long time (the fairy chimneys with snow to make it look so magical) / Pammukele / Bursa / Uludag... Don't want to make it too long and I would specially tank your entire team of the professional guise who gave us a brief insight into the intense history and what remains special is the hiking and trekking trips in Goreme national park and the cave cities underground! The stay was an absolute delight in all the destinations we covered. With our little ones, it seemed like we never felt the burden of handling them since they enjoyed every bit of our holiday and that was something which made my wife and me content and added the extra joy! Thank you so much Mustafa Ceviz.. Lots of success and well wishes from us and we look forward on a lot more of Turkey that we should see through the land of civilization tours With Regards and a big thank you again!

“Excellent”

5.0/5

We visited Turkey for 9 days booked thru Mr. Mustafa. It was a wonderful experience. Mustafa is an experienced operator and his professionalism reflected thru out our tour. Not a single instant of discomfort was felt by us even though we visited very distant places with multiple domestic flights. I will suggest people to book with Mustafa if they want a hassle free and memorable trip.

9 Days Turkey Tour Package We organised our trip with Mr Mustafa Ceviz. Excellent organisation. Easy co-ordination via emails. All the scheduled pick ups were on time. Not even 5 mins late. Was very impressed with it. Tour guides were good. We even had an option to choose our hotels. Small tour groups. At most 10 people or so in one group. Highy recommend this tour agency.

Great 9 Days trip to Turkey Mr. Mustafa Ceviz of 'The Land of Civilizations Travel' made sure we have a seamless experience during our first family visit to Turkey. The tour included a tour of Istanbul, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Cappadocia and the services were top notch. The tours were tailored to all our needs and he was very prompt in all conversations. I would highly recommend the travels to anyone planning on visiting Turkey. Moreover, he was able to provide guidance regarding the weather and other things to expect during our trip. The airport transfers, daily tours, restaurant recommendations made the trip more about sight-seeing than these miscellaneous tasks. Great Trip overall :)

“9 Days Best of Turkey Tour Package”

5.0/5

Istanbul-Cappadocia-Ephesus I did some research when we decided to travel to Turkey and picked The Land of Civilizations Travel and Mr. Mustafa Ceviz due to all the good reviews. I have to confirm we were not disappointed. He organized the itinerary I asked for and was always on hand to answer questions and accommodate changes during the trip. It was a long 9 days full of tours, transfers and transportation and everything was arranged for us. Yes, in between some of the sightseeing tours we were taken to leather and rug manufacturers and hand made pottery and Turkish delight places but the sales pitch were relatively short and tasteful. Also, you should keep in mind the tour buses take some liberty with the times they say they will pick you up. The tended to be at least 30 minutes late but that was when having Mr. Ceviz number came in handy. The places they took us for lunch had great food. The tour guides all spoke English, although with various degrees of fluency, but they were knowledgeable and very nice. I highly recommend him and will definitely book with him again anytime!
