I had booked a tour with Argeus Travel months in advance and from the first email communication they where quick to answer all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable about traveling to Cappadocia alone.
I originally booked the Mirage tour but since I was the only one on the tour we ended up adding more stops along the way and changing things a bit according to my interests and the guide's recommendations. One of the highlights of my trip was sharing lunch with a group of rug weavers, this was something that just happened and I felt like so connected to the land and the people!
Edip was one of the best guides I've ever had, and I travel a lot! He was knowledgable, friendly, fun and genuinely passionate about Cappadocia and it's history.
After an amazing first day of learning about Anatolian history and culture and marveling at the fantastic rock formations I decided to book them again for my second day in Cappadocia. I booked last minute emailing them at 10pm. At 8:30am the next morning I received a call from them at the hotel restaurant and they were there to pick me up at 9:00am!
They could not provide me with a guide and only sent a driver, the driver did an outstanding job as a guide and even took me to an off the beaten path gem of a town with an old Greek church. He had his friend open the church up just for me so I could look at the interior. He went out of his way to share with me his favorite things about his home.
The experience was nothing short of life changing: Edip and the two drivers, all of them locals, shared with me their love for their home and in the process Cappadocia carved a permanent place in my heart.
I was in Turkey for 10 days and booked tours with at least 5 different companies and Argeus Travel stood out as one of the best tours companies I have every worked with.
Booking my tours with Argeus Travel was the best decision I could have made: my local guides created a personalized itinerary based on my interests and shared with me not only their knowledge of Capadoccia but also their love for their homeland making this an unforgettable and amazing experience!
I am trying to look for some constructive criticism to give but there where no flaws with their service or the trip and I think that the price was well worth it. However I was lucky to get to do the tours by myself and I can imagine if there are other people on the tour things would be a bit different.

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.
