For anyone planning a trip to Turkey, Argeus Travel are exceptional. The level of help, caring, degree of planning and patience before and during the trip was bewildering. I felt that Mehmet went well beyond what I would normally expect from a travel agent. In the time we had, he made sure that we visited most of Turkey's outstanding sites and attractions. He offered suggestions to my panned itinerary and I am glad he was involved because we saw some amazing sites which we would have missed. Mehmet planned and booked everything, from the internal flights, car hire to all of our accommodation. The accommodation he arranged was first class and in the most beautiful locations. Argeus are a first class professional business!

If you want someone to organise a bespoke trip around some of the most beautiful parts of Turkey then there is no one better than Argeus.

Their local knowledge and contacts made our stay in Cappadocia unforgettable.

Argeus Tourism and Travel planned and delivered a wonderful, hassle free, well-orchestrated, and intimate 10 day visit to some of the most popular areas found in Istanbul, Cappadocia, and Kusadasi, Turkey. There were four of us, a couple and two grown sons. Argeus arranged for all in-country flights, hotel reservations, tour guides and drivers. The quite reasonable tour cost included entry fees into all locations, lunches during the tour and dinners at our hotel in Kusadasi. They also arranged for pickups at each airport for the drive to the hotel, including our initial arrivals to Ataturk Airport, Istanbul, where there were three separate arrivals of our group, spanning a week. As an example of their service, the Argeus driver picked us up at the Izmir Airport despite a 1:00 am arrival and a delay of more than one hour.

The three tour guides (one for each region) were well spoken, knowledgeable, and provided an excellent interpretation of the sites we visited. Our small, intimate, private tour of four contrasted sharply with some of the bus and cruise ship tours that we saw of more than 20 people. The guides also led us to some businesses with pottery and weaving demonstrations that were very interesting. While on tour we were driven to sites in a 14-passenger air-conditioned van. With only the four of us, this was quite comfortable. The guides planned our lunch stops. We were impressed that some of the best restaurants we visited were the ones where we ate lunch. Suggestions made by the guides made the lunch experience even better.

Each hotel selected by Argeus was excellent, breakfast included. Our lodging in Urgup, Cappodocia was a real gem. Customary to the region, this place (The SERiNN House Hotel) was partly carved into the stone of the region. We regretted that we only stayed there for two night since the owner, Eren, was so friendly and prepared the best breakfasts of the trip. We originally planned to skip this region and focus more on the more well-known archaeology. Mehmet of Argeus suggested the addition of Cappadocia. We were very glad that we did this and the hot-air balloon ride was a great highlight.

In short, the Argeus Tourism and Travel Company planned and delivered a high-end travel experience at a reasonable price. I recommend this company unequivocally and hope to go back soon to the wonderful country of Turkey. We will use Argeus because of their quality of service and attention to detail.

We used Argeus for a customized private 5 day tour starting in Ankara, visiting the ancient Hittite capital, Hattusha, Cappadocia and the surrounding area, the underground city of Kaymakli, the Zelve Open Air Museum with its unique monastic early Christian churches built into the unusual rock formations. Our guide Ahab, who works directly for Argeus, was perhaps the most knowledgeable and personable guide we have ever had.

I loved traveling in a comfortable Mercedes van, with free Wi Fi, instead of being couped up in an automobile, which other tour companies frequently use. Argeus doesn't cut corners. They;re not a budget operator, but then again, you get what you pay for. It's well worth it. Our driver, Suleyman was the safest and most competent driver we have ever traveled with. I highly recommend this agency for Cappadocia touring.

Argeus was really really wonderful to us. Our guide, Eyyup Korkmaz was so helpful and knowledgeable and flexible. Our visit to Capadoccia was fantastic as a result. We added in the Dervishes and he told us to go to see them in a very special presentation. We had my 91 year old mother and he made sure she got to see everything, often taking obit her hands and walking backwards to make sure she didn't fall. And he was very knowledgeable, answering every question with patience and understanding.
