We have traveled a lot and no where
have we experienced any as good as you. So be proud
and know that your philosophies and attitudes are recognized

Thank you so
much for making our visit such a success! We had a wonderful
time with you guys and just wished that we could have
stayed a few more weeks! We really enjoyed meeting you
all and hope that we can visit Turkey with Argeus again
soon! As soon as we get organized we will send some
pictures - I think we have pictures of both of you!
Once again, thank you so very much for being such competent
and gracious hosts. We will give your name to everyone
who asks! Please use us as references if you wish to.
We'll look forward to hearing from you soon.

I am very impressed
with your response to my inquiry. After looking at all
the websites I could find on Turkey tours, I sent essentially
the same message I sent to you to two other tour companies
in Turkey. I received prompt responses from each of
you. But your reply was so far superior in reflecting
understanding, capability, and creativity that I do
not plan to give further consideration to either of
them. I did initially contact a tour operator here in
the US, to inquire about the general feasibility of
the trip. His response to everything has been, "Yes,
I can do that." But he has yet to indicate how
he would do anything. I realize that itinerary building
is difficult given the limited information I'm able
to provide. That is why I appreciate your perceptiveness.
Through your help, my wife and I fully enjoyed the experience
at Cappadocia. Even though we didn't spend enough time
over there, we made the most impressive trip into whole
Thank you and I wish you a great summer.
…. As I told you before, the service the three
of you provided was truly excellent. Argeus, in contrast
to some of the other tourist businesses we encountered
in Turkey, made genuine efforts to provide the highest
quality of service to us. I think it is companies like
Argeus, which exhibit a high level of integrity with
respect to tourists that will have people, particularly
those in the United States, returning to Turkey for
more visits. If you would like, you may share this email
with your boss or any other tourist who seeks a recommendation
Thank you again.

My very first impression for you, when
we started communicating for our trip to Cappadocia
was really very good, it could not be better! After
I personally met you there, I realized that I was wrong!
You were much more nice and kind and efficient than
anyone could expect! And I say that now, that there
can not be any reason or afterthought from my side to
flatter you or exaggerate, right?
So, please accept my most cordial thanks
and gratitude for organizing this trip for us, for your
kindness and your efficiency. Be sure that I have wholeheartedly
promoted to everyone here in Greece, Argeus Travel and
Dear Aydin Bey,
I want to thank you for all your care
a good service. Everything went well. We liked the hotel
in Istanbul, especially the location. The staff was
very helpful and courteous. We enjoyed the city, and
we were lucky with the weather.
I think, I will put Cappadocia to the
top of the list of my favorite places in the world –
your excellent organization and the knowledge and expertise
of Adnan, has as much to do with it as the beauty of
the landscape and the handwork of past generations.
I certainly intend to visit Cappadocia
someday soon, and will recommend your office to all
our friends and acquaintances.
Wishing you all the best, and hope
to see you soon here in Israel, or in your country.
To the Manager/Owner,
We just returned home from traveling through Eastern
Turkey with Edip Ozcan Arslan. I wanted to let you know
how excellent a guide Edip was. He was consistently
well-informed, accommodating, interested in our welfare
and satisfaction, and attentive to our needs. That is
what one expects from a good guide. However, Edip was
not only a good guide but excellent company as well.
His sense of humor and his easy going personality made
it a pleasure to be with him. In general, he enhanced
a well designed and most interesting trip and made us
very happy travelers. His handling of a few frustrating
situations along the way helped to keep those instances
from interfering in our pleasure.
Please feel free to use us as references for your agency
and give Edip our very best wishes. Since I am in the
travel business, I hope I can be of help to you on some

Dear Mr. Arslan
I just wanted to thank you for your
quality services on our recent trip to Istanbul. We
have traveled extensively and have used upscale guide
and travel services before. Your communication and services
were as good as any we have used before. I appreciated
your prompt and thorough email communication.
Our guide for our two days in Istanbul
was terrific. Her name was S. Bihter Kuranel and she
asked us to call her just "B". Her English
was excellent, as good if not better than any college
educated American. She knew the sites very well and
was happy to answer all the other questions we had about
Turkish culture, religion, and the political situation.
We truly enjoyed our time with her.
Thank you again for making these arrangements.
We highly recommend you to anyone visiting Turkey and
we look forward to contacting you the next time we visit

My husband and I recently completed
a short trip to Turkey. It was planned totally via email
with Argeus Travel Agency, firstname.lastname@example.org,
in Cappadocia, Turkey. Edip Ozcan Arslan was our contact
in Urgup. He paid careful attention to all our requests
booking our hotels, transport, and activities. He sent
detailed itineraries. After final arrangements were
approved by us, payment was arranged. He selected knowledgeable
guides and drivers who made our visit very special.
We enjoyed a hot air balloon ride with Cappadocia Balloons
flying over spectacular country. The Eresin Crown, our
hotel in Istanbul, was located near the Blue Mosque
and within walking distance of many famous and historical
sites. The Esbelli Evi, cave hotel, in Urgup was comfortable,
unusual, and interesting. Staff at both hotels made
our stay very pleasant. Food throughout was well prepared
and beautifully served. People were friendly, helpful,
and willing to engage in discussions despite the fact
that we spoke no Turkish and had to rely on our guide
or the English of our hosts. Many questioned why more
people do not travel to Turkey. It has a beautiful and
varied terrain, wonderful seacoast, many historical
sites, and museums to explain them. It has excellent
accommodations and restaurants and enough shopping possibilities
for even the jaded shopper. We felt welcome and hope
to return soon. Before engaging Argeus Travel Agency,
we read Frommer’s Turkey (2002). It was selected
based on the fact that it had been updated since Sept
11, 2001 and was a comprehensive guide to all the areas
our friends had recommended we visit.
Edip Ozcan Arslan kept in touch with
us throughout the trip and even ascertained that we
were checked in for our return flight. He sent a welcome
home e-mail greeting us and our family back in the U.S.
I have rarely worked with such a thorough planner and
thoughtful agent. I can highly recommend Argeus Agency.

Although it is my second day back at work in New York
City, I am only here physically.
We had a wonderful time in Turkey.
There is so much history to tell in Turkey, especially
in Cappadocia and Ephesus.
Your guides were just wonderful. I
am so glad we had a chance to actually meet you in person.
When someone said “Argeus” was the best,
I absolutely agree a 100 % and more.
Thank you very much for making our
trip a memorable one for all of us.
Our trip in Turkey was absolutely fantastic,
wonderful, and totally perfect. Mustafa was a great
driver and a wonderful person. We all felt safe with
him at the wheel and totally comfortable that he would
be able to handle any situation. Uzay has an amazingly
deep knowledge of history of Turkey which he was able
to articulate in a compelling manner. He was an incredible
host and guide. All the restaurants he chose had great
food. He made us all feel comfortable, relaxed, and
well cared for. We all fell in love with Turkey and
hope to return some day.
Your company does an excellent job,
and we’ll certainly recommend it to anyone planning
on visiting Turkey. We hope that all you keep well and
that your business continues to prosper.
Brentwood / USA
We traveled with your great company two years ago and
had a wonderful experience with your country and the
people we met. Also, we remember that on September 11,
you sent your American friends an e-mail telling us
you were thinking of us. It meant a lot to us to receive
that from you. I felt the urge to write you this time
and to apologize for the unfortunate strain our two
countries find themselves in. This war can not be good
for tourism and it can’t be good for the fostering
good will between our countries. Please don’t
let the current events color your view of the Americans
that are peace loving. We will come back to Turkey to
support the travel industry and your business.

I trust all is well. I just wanted
to drop a note and tell you how much we enjoyed our
trip to Cappadocia and our tour. Uzay and Huseyin did
an OUTSTANDING job. It reflects very well on Argeus
to have employees of their quality.
We have been recommending to anyone
who expresses any interest in Turkey your company. We
will be back sometime in the next three years and will
certainly use Argeus again.
Once again, thank you.
On behalf of my friends, I wanted to
thank you again for your help in planning our trip in
Turkey. We all had a wonderful time. Of course, much
of the credit for execution of the plan goes to Uzay;
we have told him how much we appreciate his efforts.
He was able to take full advantage of the flexibility
in the plan and to adapt the schedule to our desires
and changing conditions. Most importantly, we always
felt that the main goal shared by both of you, was that
we enjoy ourselves by seeing and learning as much as
we could of Turkey.
If you ever need an Israeli recommendation,
please feel free to use my name.
