We took the Highlights of Turkey tour in the fall of 2014. It was excellent, well organized and a fantastic tour. Sukru our guide was exceptional and Kenan our driver was great. Quite a while after we got home we realized we had a problem with one of our purchases we made during the tour. We contacted Mehmet at Argeus Travel and he, and Sukru, went above and beyond and worked with us to correct the unfortunate situation. Rather than just referring us back to where we bought the item, Mehmet and Sukru personally took over the problem and spent many hours of their own time making sure we were taken care of and the problem was fixed. We cannot say enough about how helpful and accommodating they were during this process.
Argeus Travel is a great organization run and staffed by amazing people. Do not look any further if you are looking for a travel company in Turkey. Turkey is a fantastic country and Argeus Travel is the best company you can find!

ARGEUS TRAVEL, TURKEY

One of the most important elements of success in our travels to Turkey this time (this was our fifth trip) was finding Koray at Argeus Travel. We had wanted to visit Cappadocia since we had not been there before and as a result of several strong recommendations contacted Argeus Travel in Cappadocia. Not only was Koray able to book us perfect accommodations in Cappadocia but he ended up booking our hotels in Istanbul and Cirali on the Turquoise coast as well as booking flights to and from all these places. At each point of the trip he had arranged for us to be met at the airport and transported to our various hotels, then transferred back to the airport. He also arranged a personal guide in Cappadocia, Ozay, who was with us for two whole days and gave us so much information on the different sites we visited. We later found out guides have to take a 4-year degree to qualify. To have such personalized service at such little cost makes Argeus Travel an absolute must if you are planning a trip to Turkey.

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.
