“Our Gate 1 13 day Turkish Treasures, October 2013 was outstanding”

Reviewed 20 November 2013

We had an excellent trip with Gate 1. The hotels were fine and the guide, Chadash, was great. He made the many different places of interest come alive with his expert recounting of all aspects of Turkish life and history. He was always ready to answer our questions and ensure that our vacation was enjoyed to the utmost. Many places of interest were included in the tour and the optionals that we took were equally well conducted.

1) Went on a 2-day tour of Cappadocia. Our guide on the first day was so-so. He tried to make jokes but they weren't too funny. We had a great group though - our own group were 6 girls and our tour had about 6 other people. Our second day we had a really great guide, Gonca. She was very informative and personable.

Acetes travel did a great job of arranging transport and timetables. We had the obligatory stops by the Onyx factory, Ceramic shop and rug store as well. But the sales pitch wasn't too bad.

2) Acetes Travel for Ephesus, Izmir, Kusadasi and Pumukkale
Great tour guides here. Ali was our guide for Izmir, Ephesus, Virgin Mary's House. Ali was really informative and gave valuable information. He provided some great restaurant recommendations in Kusadasi, where we stayed overnight.

We took 2 days private tour in Cappadocia with our guide Hamide. We took northern part of Cappadocia in one day, and southern part on the next day. We did ancient churches, valleys, trekking, underground city, etc. I can say Hamide is the big asset of the company, she's one of the best guide we ever had. She really nailed every part of the region, she's a very energetic person, passionate, informative, and she convinced us to take a trekking tour which was very enjoyable.

Will definitely recommend her to anyone who will travel to this region.

Two day tour of capadocia. The tour was organised and carried out very professionally. A clean spacious and comfortable mini bus was at our disposal all day with ample supply of complimentary drinking water (a wonderful gesture in the summer). Had an excellent guide, Hamide.
She was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English was able to give us detailed history and explanation at every step of the way without getting into too much detail to keep it interesting.

Booked a 4-day tour through Agora Guesthouse in Istanbul, in late October with the following itinerary: Izmir/Ephesus, Pamukkale, Cappadochia 2 days. Despite multiple transfers and flight delays, the tour was well coordinated. The group was small (max 6 people) which makes it a lot more enjoyable. Special thanks to Mensure, our guide from Urgup, for being a wonderful host in Cappadochia. Yes there were visits to carpet cooperatives, I found those to be instructive and fun- yes they will pressure you to buy but they will also take no for an answer. The leather factory visit was a waste of time though, the catwalk show a little ridiculous. Should be dropped from the itinerary.
The two hotels booked in Kusadasi (Carina) and Urgup(Antique Cave Hotel) were excellent, a much-needed relief after a night on the bus.
