      Reliable Tour operator

      Nemrut Golu Mar 26, 2015 at 5:31 AM

      Hi,
      I'am trying to find a safe and reliable agency for having that famous 3 days tour to Mount Nemrut from Cappadocia. Turkish Heritage is ridiculous expensiv, it would be 375 euro a single without meals, so....
      Some travelers were very dissapointed in some trips advertised as excellent and proved to be with old vans, without AC, awfull hotels, bad drivers and guides, etc..
      Any advice would be very helpful, I do not want a cheap trip, but a fair quality-price ratio!!!!!!

    • How Best to get from Bodrum to Rhodes by ferry.

      Bodrum Mar 8, 2015 at 8:51 AM

      What is the best way to travel from Bodrum to Rhodes on either Saturday 20th or Sunday 21st June 2015. We are a senior couple - on a tight budget travelling from Brisbane Australia to Turkey and the Greek Islands. I believe you can get a bus to Mamaris from Bodrum but I don't think there is one early enough to connect with the 9am catamaran to Rhodes. We'd prefer not to stay in Mamaris if we can avoid it. Does a later ferry operate in JUne?
      Also is there a reliable ferry service of some kind from Bodrum to Rhodes
      Also how do you get from Rhodes port to accommodation in the old Rhodes town?

      Hi

      Me and my wife a looking to head to Turkey for our 1 year anniversary (we are 24 and 26 years old). We plan to mainly relax at the resort but we'd also like to swim with dolphins, chill by the beach and possibly do some watersports. Which town do you think would suit us better? Also which town embodies more of the Turkish culture and less of the British holiday party scene?

      Thanks! :)

    • Where is the Main Bus Terminal in Istanbul.

      Istanbul Mar 8, 2015 at 9:09 AM

      We are a senior couple who want to travel from Istanbul to Bodrum - and then on to Rhodes.
      We are staying at the Star Holiday Hotel in the Sultanahmet and will need to get to the Istanbul Otgar on that side of town. Is it affordable to get there by taxi? We will be travelling just on the night before Ramadam Wed 17th June 2015 and are wondering if that is going to affect out trip. Also I'm not sure if we can get the hotel to book the bus ticket or whether to do that on the internet.
      Any suggestions or information re bus companies etc would be greatly appreciated. I have read some of the posts on the VT website but some of them are a bit older and I am not sure if the information is still relevant.

      Best Location for 1 week stay

      Istanbul Mar 19, 2015 at 6:59 AM

      Hello Folks,

      In September, I'll be visiting Istanbul with my wife, baby and two other friends. We'll be renting an apartment during our stay and I'd like to get your advice on the best location. Because we're with a baby we're a little slower and less mobile, so I'd like to stay somewhere that is beautiful (views, surroundings) and that is convenient to shops, pedestrian areas etc. Gone are the days of flopping out anywhere and ranging far and wide.

      My question is: What is the ideal place to rent an apartment for a week's stay in Istanbul?

      Thank you!

      Coastal Spot in Turkey or Greece after Istanbul

      Turkey Mar 19, 2015 at 6:55 AM

      Dear Friends. I'll be visiting Istanbul in September with wife, baby, and some friends. We'll be staying in Istanbul for a week and then have 5 days or so at our disposal to visit coastal Turkey or perhaps jump off to one of the Greek islands off the coast.

      My question is this. Where would you go? Can you recommend a nice place to visit that is beautiful and not over run by mass tourism?

      Are there any difficulties getting to the Greek islands from Turkey?

      Thank you!

    • American Woman Living in Konya Alone - General Advice Needed

      Konya Jun 5, 2013 at 12:59 PM

      I was just awarded a research grant and I'm moving to Konya to live for one year. I will have my husband with me for most of my trip, but I will be alone for the first three months. I'm learning Turkish, but I'm just a beginner. I should also mention that I look very American and young (I'm 25, I look 18). Could I have some general advice about safety, and any customs I should be aware of- for example, I only recently learned that it is illegal to kiss in public in Turkey?

      Also, what are the chances I'll find other Americans living there, perhaps teaching English? Expat communities online show very few English speakers living in Konya...

      Thank you!
