Very well-planned and well-managed tour. Extremely punctual pick-ups and drop-offs. Knowledgeable English-speaking guides. The only minor lacuna was that the various entrance fees mentioned in the document were obsolete. Almost everywhere the fees had been revised.

TopAsiaTour arranged an excellent 12-day tour of Turkey and Egypt for me at very short notice. Customer service was excellent and all arrangements ran quite smoothly. I would highly recommend his services. I will also be grateful that he encouraged me to keep a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia on my itinerary when I was thinking of canceling. It was a wonderful experience that I absolutely loved.
This entire trip was such a memorable experience that crossed off so many items on my bucket list. It overshadowed any of the negatives. I will treasure this trip always. Importantly, I felt very well looked after as a solo female traveling across two continents. I highly recommend this tour and will be using TAT again.

Our food tour in Istanbul with Furkan was an absolute pleasure. The local knowledge and immersive experiences are second to none. The food tour was a brilliant introduction to Istanbul's rich culinary, history, cultures, and people both on the Asian and European sides. Furkan went out of his way to make us have the most authentic experience with his culinary surprises.

Exploring the underground cities and ancient remains as well as visiting the Blessed Mother's house were definitely the highlights of my tour. Optional activities like our Turkish night out and watching the Whirling Dervishes were also my favorites.

Fantastic tour of Turkey


We took an 11-day tour of Turkey. It was an unforgettable experience. We had a tour of Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, and Ephesus. Everything was well organized. The Cappadocia balloon ride they organized for us was a highlight of the whole trip. Definitely recommend taking this tour if you go to Turkey.

We had an excellent experience. Ms. Lily was the person who managed our trip. She gave us a lot of information before we left and gave us clear instructions for being picked up from the airport. The next morning after our arrival he came to meet us at the hotel and go over the itinerary. She was very responsive whenever we called her.

Derya was an excellent guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and willing to answer any of our questions throughout the entire experience. We were able to hit all the highlights of Istanbul and we never felt rushed. A good amount of time at each stop and very informative. It was an absolutely great experience so well worth its price. Highly recommend.
