Below is a small collection of testimonials and holiday reviews we received. Covering Tours, Holidays and Gulet Cruises.

Dear Ali

We had a really wonderful time in Turkey. We loved the gulet food and the crew . We had a lot of fun and loved swimming in the sea.

We thought we would just make a few enquiries about the Greek Islands.

The Mavi hotel was great, I would do the same again and stop there for a few days after.

A very memorable holiday

Kind regards

My wife and I booked a 12 days tour package around Turkey with Eco Turkey Travel. The entire booking process was done through e-mails. We sent an e-mail to Eco Turkey Travel with a list of requirements (cities we wanted to visit, specific landmarks we wanted to see, transportation  preferences such as flight vs bus, meal preferences etc.). Our counterpart in Eco Turkey was Ali who provided an excellent and fast response to our enquiries. Everything went extremely well. And on every stop/destination, our transportation was there waiting for us on time and already prepaid. Hotels were booked and prepaid. Tours were also booked, on time and prepaid. The guides are really experts at coordinating and managing all the logistics for every group. I would definitely recommend Eco Turkey Travel who wants to book a tour package in Turkey.

My wife, 2 kids and I have just spent  3 wonderful days in Cappadocia after spending 4 days in Istanbul. It a place with a unique landscape, underground cities, cave churches and houses carved in the rocks. Place itself was just incredible, our time was made really special because our tour operator,  Ali from Eco Turkey Travel. In addition we stayed in a cave hotel and took advantage of the unbelievable balloon flight that is offered over the region. It has been a truly a lifetime’s experience, gliding far above the special Cappadocian countryside as well as floating low between the amazing rock formations. We can thoroughly recommend Eco Turkey Travel and Ali Keskin, for anyone visiting Cappadocia, Turkey.

Dear Ali,

Classics of Turkey holiday could hardly have been better.  The staff were excellent, the whole operation was well planned and the content quite unique.  The price was very competitive.

The mix of people on the tour turned out to be ideal and this added greatly to our enjoyment of the holiday.  It might be said that this factor was beyond your control but it occurred to me that by selecting travellers from a particularly wide range of English speaking countries you increased the chances of successful group integration.  Extremely interesting itinerary; excellent tour arrangements; and very effective and pleasant staff. A brilliant holiday at a brilliant price! Thank you very much, Ali, for your helpful and prompt attention in arranging for us to go on this wonderful holiday.

Hi Ali,
Thank you for arranging the trip to Istanbul. It all went well and I enjoyed the few days that I spent there.

D. Simpsons, 29.07.2013 – USA

I would highly recommend EcoTurkey, all of the staff are highly knowledgeable and highly professional. I told them the type of holiday I was looking for and they did the rest – Dalyan was absolutely perfect.

My partner and I loved it so much we are already planning a return visit.

Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for Ali and his team. I will be recommending EcoTurkey to all of my family and friends and would not book with anyone else.

Dalyan is a haven of tranquillity and beauty. The Dalyan Resort Hotel is amazing I spoke to lots of people who were repeat customers and I can understand why. The town with its restaurants and bars is just a short walk away “Turkey at its best” no McDonald’s in site.

Dear Ali,
Please accept my apologies for not contacting you sooner.

My friend and I both thoroughly enjoyed our “Taste of Turkey” tour. It was very well organised with very good hotels and an excellent tour guide.As Turkey is a large country there was quite a lot of coach travel involved, but it was certainly worth while to see the sites we visited.Outstanding was Ephesus when we would have liked a longer stay if possible.The last 3 days spent on the gulet were truly delightful a welcome relaxation. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, and hope to visit this beautiful country again.

Best wishes

Hello Ali,
We did have a great gulet holiday and thank you for arranging for the bottle of champaign to celebrate our golden wedding, which we found in our cabin on arrival,

Because we were a family of nine adults and four children and were sole occupiers of the gulet, this made the holiday more enjoyable.

We all thought the chef did an outstanding job and is worth his weight in gold. His food was excellant and all local dishes.

The children in our party are all good swimmers and put this into good use when moored up in the different bays and coves. Diving from the deck and the top cabin roof was enjoyed by all and they couldn’t wait for the boat to stop.

There was plenty of space on deck, fore and aft, for relaxing and sunbathing in the sun or in the shade.

The three man crew were very acommodating and would get us drinks and make us coffee when we asked.

James Stewart, 11.06.2013 – Bristol

Hi Seba,

I have just come back from a one week city break in Istanbul which I spent with my two teenage sons. I have travelled to Turkey several times, in fact my husband is Turkish. The city of Istanbul is a vibrant mix of many cultures and we really loved it. We stayed in a historical hotel in Sultanahmet for a week and had the most pleasant experience in Istanbul. The staff are very nice and knowledgeable, rooms are huge for European standards, neighborhood is somewhat isolated so it is relatively quiet.

Thanks for your help


Just a brief line to thank you for arranging the gulet cruise and transport.

Everything went very well, the Gulet was good the crew friendly and the food excellent.

Dear Ali,

When I was planning our first visit to Turkey I searched for a Travel Agent who could provide what I wanted, i.e.travelling ‘independently’ to Istanbul, Cappadocia and Antalya, staying in small hotels and with guided tours in each location.

I looked at several websites and narrowed my enquiries to three Agents,

After considerable checking with all three , I chose Eco Turkey who provided me with just what I wanted, when I wanted it, and dealt very efficiently, flexibly and patiently with my requests, relatively economically.

The result was a very enjoyable visit to a very attractive and interesting bur very large country. Everything went pretty smoothly though there were occasional communication difficulties at the local level.

I would thoroughly recommend Eco Turkey for a visit to Turkey.

Hi Ali,

I have just finished my 8 Days Lycian Way Tour. The tour was excellent and well organised. We were well looked after and I would certainly recommend it to friends.

Attn Ali Keskin

Ali I have just returned from my 16 day holiday in Turkey , which you will recall in late 2011 we extensively discussed various ” activity options ” in Turkey before choosing/ confirming a week’s activities in Dalyan. , to this we added a further week for me to repeat a Gulet cruise , this time from Bodrum into the Golf of Gokova and finally a short extended stay-on, in Bodrum to enable me to include further Scuba diving in this holiday.

Turkey is a beautiful country with warm an welcoming people . The holiday was brilliant, the activities were very professionally and safely run by the various course leaders ( rafting: canyoning: trekking : kayaking : scuba ). Dalyan itself is a charming / relaxed riverside town with for me , the right mix of Turkish Restaurants / eateries and the option if you are looking for a change to dine ” Internationally. I would particularly recommend “Cafe Iz, a charming garden and Art Gallery / Tea room/ Turkish Coffee shop”. My transfer up to Bodrum was straight forward on the excellent and amazingly low cost Turkish bus / coach network leaving me to again enjoy the serenity of a week’s Gulet cruising, swimming and snorkelling in the Aegean.

Yes, I am a fan and may well return to Turkey for a third time during 2013. I am happy to confirm / discuss , this recommendation should any of your clients wish to have an independent view

Thank you for your patience and good advice that enable me to put together this somewhat complicated ” tailor made holiday package ”

PS- A tip on Dalyan activities . The activity possibilities are manifold – There is no difficulty in discussing the day options with the Activity provider , they are very happy to recommend and accommodate any changes from the original / booked activities.

Best regards
Mike Jones, Manchester, 27.09.2012

Dear Seba and Ali,

Thanks so much for organising a brilliant family holiday to Turkey. All of us from the 6 yr old to the 46 yr old had a fantastic time. Turkey is beautiful and thanks to some excellent organisation by you, and a lot of flexibility from the local tour companies, we were able to see loads of it! Mud baths, fishing off the gulet and then barbecuing the catch, swimming in the sea, white water rafting, visiting the turtle hospital, lake diving, and on and on. It was a great holiday and we’ll certainly be doing it again!

Harry and family, Bristol, September, 2012

Dear Eco Turkey Travel,

I have arrived to Jiva beach resort on 3rd of July 2012 and stayed there a week by recommendation of Eco Turkey in London. I have to say that for the price I paid is absolutely fine. The room was big, all the furniture was new, clean (most important thing for me). Overall the hotel is located in a nice zone, 24hr taxi was there plus its on the route of dolmus buses to Fethiye town centre .. not very central but well located.. few connections to some beaches, direct bus to airport few mins away from the hotel. Restaurant was also very clean and food was amazing, quality was there. Staff was very nice, friendly and always available which is difficult to find nowadays. I would like to say thank you to organise me such a wonderful trip. I would definitely recommend Eco Turkey for anyone who is interested in visiting Turkey.

E. Kaya, London, August, 2012

Hi Seba

I’m sorry it took me so long to reply to your email. I had a very positive experience booking my trip to Turkey with Eco Turkey. Your partners in Turkey were great, too, and helped us to change our itinerary at the last minute. Overall it was a great experience and I’d recommend you to anyone looking for travel assistance in Turkey!

Aileen, UK, July, 2012

Hi Ali,

We had a fantastic time in Turkey. The coach, driver, guide, itinerary and hotels were all amazing and Turkey itself was of course the star of the show. We would have absolutely no hesitation in strongly recommending this trip to everyone else and we are considering touring Eastern Turkey in the future. It truly was one of the best trips we have ever been on.

Thank you,
Jane & Mark Rainbow, Cornwall, May 2012

Hi Ali,
Hope you are well. I am back from my trip to Turkey. I am writing to thank you for arranging such a well organised trip. All the members of travel agency were very nice and warm to us. They made our stay very comfortable. The hotel in Kusadasi- Otel Derici and in Antalya- Mediterra Art were amazing. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and will go to Antayla once again myself. I must say Turkey is a very hospitable country and the people of the country have added a lot to its natural beauty. Once again thanks so much to you and your team.

Regards, Sadia Mirza, London 2012

Dear Ali,

As we were travelling with 4 children under the age of 14, entrainment and food was important to us. I approached Eco turkey for advice. He recommended Egypt to us as it would be warm and not too cold this time of the year. After arriving at the resort I can say we were amazed at the hotel and Ali booked for us. The resort was everything and more we could have asked for and Ali could not have done a better job. Rooms with great views, plenty of activities for the kids and of course lots of food available 24 hours a day. In short Eco turkeys with their helpful staff were able to book me and my family the perfect holiday. I have no hesitation in using them again.

Sunny, London, 2012

Dear Seba,

I hope everything is OK with you. We had a wonderful time in Turkey. It is difficult for us to pinpoint a favourite place. We’ll definitely be back one day and you’ll know when. Everything went all right, on time, no problems. All the people that took care of us (drivers, guides, hotel staff etc), we really had a great time. If any of our friends or colleagues will think to visit turkey, we will for sure recommend you. All the best.

Ferdi Tyler, Melbourne, Australia

Dear Ali,

I would like to personally say thank you. You and your our team made my Turkey holiday an outstanding one. Me and my friends were very pleased with all the arrangements, the hotel and the sightseeing tours that was prepared for us. We would like to thank you for the hotel recommendation in Cappadocia, the location was excellent, right next to the Urgup Centre and we were facing the beautiful mountain view.

Michael Knight, California

Dear Ali,

I would like to say that the holiday tour we booked with Eco Turkey Travel was very good. Me and my friends were very happy from the result. The members of the tour were very helpful. Everything was great and we had an unforgettable time in Turkey.

Thank you,
Florence Turan, Sydney, Australia

Dear Eco Turkey Staff
Eco Turkey is the only travel agency you should consider using if traveling to Turkey. They took care of every little detail and chose hotels that were beyond our every expectation. We couldn’t have asked for a better Turkey Tour. I will recommend Eco Turkey to all of my friends and family who want the most unbelievable and authentic experience inTurkey, specially Cappadocia. Thank you so much for planning the perfect trip. We can’t wait to use you again in the near future. Teşekkür Ederim!

Laura Bow, Manchester, UK

Dear Seba,
One of our best vacations ever, in large measure due to the selection of what to see, where to stay and what to do by Eco Turkey.

Lisa, Ontario, Canada, 2010

Hi Filiz,
You provided us with the best experience in international travel. Everything on the welcome package (transfers, sightseeing tours, guides, etc) It was hassle free and we received super service from everyone, feeling like celebrities. Thank you.

A. Savur, Netherland

Dear Ali,
Unlike other tour operator, it is clear that the Eco Turkey staff know Turkey and can provide you with the information to make your travels throughout Turkey one of the best experiences you’ll have. Our Turkey Tour was the second time we’ve been to Turkey and this time around, we definitely knew more about our surroundings and gained insight into what is Turkey. The tailor made tour was created by you was fantastic! Everybody was so kind and accommodating. Everything went smoothly. It was great experience.

Maria D. New York, 2009

Dear Ali Keskin
We wanted to travel freely and have a stress-free experience in Turkey, but honestly did not think it was possible until we discovered Eco Turkey. Our drivers were there waiting for us every step of the way, even when our flight from the UK. was 2 hours late they were still there waiting for us. This was so reassuring! Our Turkey hotels were fabulous and we felt especially well cared for (and well fed.) Turkey sightseeing tours provided were interesting and educational and we enjoyed our tour guides. The recommended restaurants and tavernas were our favorites. Eco Turkey is 5-star in our book!

Anthony Birk, Brighton, 2011

We Would like to thank Eco Turkey Travel for a truly super gulet holiday. We went on holiday with them last year at the end of May. There were 8 of us. Eco Turkey organised our Gulet Cruise in Turkey and the Gulet was very clean and spacious. We visited some most beautiful bays, the scenery was wonderful and the food simply outstanding. Tesekkur!
