"Istanbul Aku Datang..2014.. :D
The itinerary n quotation as requested.
Pls take note:
1. Aykut, the agent, is a he; very nice n extremely helpful guy.
2. His co only caters to small group tour, 10-14 pax; so most of the time there wd be only our family, like a private tour.
3. Our travels from Istanbul to other cities are by flights of abt 1hr each.
By road is avlbl but the journey wl take btwn 8-10 hrs depending on the distance and weather during winter especially. So this wl hv variation on the tour package itself.
4. U cn design ur own itinerary as what we did and Aykut will advise and arrange all the details.
5. Door to door pick-up service, so no worries at all abt transportation.
6. Purchase ur own flight tickets.
7. Ask everything and anything, Aykut will be at ur service :D
