We decided on short notice to travel to Turkey and was so glad we booked with Efendi. It was reassuring to know that we had someone to call, since traveling during COVID comes with being open to schedule changes and some level of uncertainty. We could not have been in better hands. Tahsin helped us put together a 10-day itinerary for us and accommodated all of our personalized requests and hotel choices. During our trip, Tahsin was very responsive and also checked in on how we were doing throughout. We appreciated the high level of service. Pricing was very reasonable. Everything on the trip went very smoothly (there were a lot of transfers), and we had an amazing time in Turkey! Thanks Tahsin :)

We had the most amazing time visiting Turkey (it was our first time). Efendi Travel Agency came highly recommended on the Turkey Travel Planner website and definitely did not disappoint! Tahsin was our agent and did an amazing job. We had only a short amount of time to plan our itinerary, and he managed to organise it all and tailor the 15 day itinerary to our requests. We visited Istanbul, Cappadocia, Antalya, Pamukkale and Kusudasi. Overall the whole trip went very smoothly and we were able to visit so many beautiful areas! All of the staff (tour guides, transfer drivers) were so kind and welcoming. We have left Turkey full of wonderful sights and experiences and are looking forward to going back again! Thank you Tahsin and Efendi!

Yusuf is the best travel agent I have ever met! He was so patient and accommodating, and extremely honest. I went to him with no plan, and he put together a plan for me—> Istanbul to cappadocia, cappadocia to Ephesus, Ephesus to Pamukkale. All flights, breakfasts, lunches included for a very reasonable price. Other agencies offered tours for $200.00-$300.00 less, but I wanted to meet my travel agent. And it was worth it because Yusuf was available every step of the way, I could text him for advice and help anytime. And he would contact me to make sure I was properly picked up/cared for at various check points. He was so reliable! It was worth the extra $200.00 to have him to work with. When my credit card didn’t work, and was frozen, he waited until I could get the payment arrangements fixed. And my goodness, the trip was fantastic!!! There were no hitches, and each place provided endless fascination. You should spend two days in cappadocia, and do a long tour in Ephesus. Our guide at Ephesus gave us a three hour tour, and it felt it could have been even longer though three hours was quite a bit anyways. Make sure you swim at Pamukkale, the water is divine and you should walk through the ruins of the Hieropolis. You will not regret any of these cities!! Research their rich history and you will get even more out of your tours!

We did a tour of Turkey which was arranged by Efendi Private Tours. We were assisted at every step by Mr Tahsin Unsal. Tahsin was very cooperative and patient in answering my many queries in relation to the tour. The tour was very well planned with a good balance between sightseeing and personal leisure time. All pick ups and drops were well coordinated by Efendi. Tahsin was always available to us on phone throughout the tour. So thanks to Efendi and Tahsin for a wonderful tour.

We were a family of 3 and i must say the tour was well planned. There were no last moment surprises and we would know the scheduled well in advance. We were skeptical when we initiated the conversation to transfer advance to a travel agent in an unknown country but i must say Tahsin is one of the most professional travel agent we have come across. Efendi allows you the flexibility to book hotels of your choice directly, they even planned our flights and gave us the option of booking ourselves which saves us money. That goes to show Efendi does not operate only on commercial principles but they want to provide you with an experience. Tahsin is prudent on mails as compared to calls. I would highly recommend Efendi for Istanbul tours

Efendi Travel organized an excellent tour, down to the last detail. Everything was included, even tickets for the public bus, transfers and air fare back to Istanbul.
