We spent a pleasant week with RSD Travel company touring the Ancient Greek and Roman ruins of north east Turkey. The tour company was very good and excellent organisation. An initial misunderstanding was very quickly resolved by the company. The guide was knowledgable and helpful. As a traveller used to independence in travel, it was good that the guide did... More

Ephesus is incredible and made better by our patient guide. He was extremely polite and knowledgeable. To get our attention he would say " my dear guests". He carried an orange "magic umbrella" we followed. Take an early morning tour to avoid crowds.

Althogh they said 'We will arrange a private Balkan tour ,if you're party of 20 people. They arrange a tour of 44 people.They lied about it. If you see Tura Turizm you'd better think again.

Just returned from a 8 day scheduled coach tour with RSD Travel Limited within the North of Turkey in which the sites / ruins visited were amazing, the tour manager and coach driver were also very good. We were also lucky to be traveling with an excellent group of 30 plus travellers from the UK on coach No 535. Overall... More

Our tour guide was a lovely young woman, Çiğdem Göktaş. She was so knowledgeable and caring. It made the six and a half hour tour a remarkable lesson in history with an insight... More

We recently returned from a 12 day Mediterranean cruise aboard the NCL Spirit and two of our tours from the ship were with Tura Turizm. Well organized tours. Tour guides very knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth the money. Can't go wrong if you book a tour with Tura Turizm.

At 10 euro per person, leaving every 30 minutes from very near the entrance to the cruise port, this is a good value and a good way to get a feel for this very large Turkish city. Open top so be prepared for sun/rain/whatever. Tour lasts 1 hour. Although there aren't as many wondrous sights here as elsewhere in Turkey,... More

The 13 Day Turkish Treasures is worthwhile and very inexpensive. To our surprise, the food is the best among 5 tours (countries) we joined w/ Gate1. It has the mix flavor (taste) of Eastern and Western food. Istanbul (Constantinople, the capital of Eastern Roman Empire) is the core of Byzantine Architecture & Ottman Architecture. Greek and Roman left countless ruins... More

We had several tours organised by our cruise ship through Tura Tours. One was a trip to Gallipoli which was excellent with a knowledgeable and informative guide. There is a review of that trip under Gallipoli. Tura then organised a major event in Feyithe for the majority of the ships passengers, over 590 people attended an open air meal and... More
