Really enjoyed the tour. We stayed at very nice hotels with excellent meal services. Our tour guide and driver were very nice. We visited all the locations mentioned on the tour advertising. The vans were very comfortable with Wi-Fi connection. We were a group of 10 people which it makes much easier to travel. I would not recommend doing big buses with lots of tourists. In my opinion this tour was outstanding!!!

Our family of 4, which included 13 & 15 year old boys, thoroughly enjoyed our tour organised through Fez Travel. Our guide, Tamer was brilliant from the moment he picked us up until our last day. Nothing was too much trouble and Tamer ensured that everything ran smoothly and even coordinated some guests lost luggage to meet us on route, which was not an easy task. Tamer made it his priority to make sure every single one of us had an enjoyable experience and he has a thorough knowledge of the sites and history of all the areas visited. Safy was a fantastic and safe driver also. We wish we knew earlier just how much Fez Travel & their guides can assist with booking all sorts of extras, such as transfers, flights, other bookings etc. We thoroughly recommend Tamer and Fez Travel. Turkey is an amazing place to visit and having a guide makes such a difference.

The trip was very well organized by Fez Travel. It covered a lot of the important historic areas and monuments in Western Turkey on the Aegean sea. The tour size of 14 was optimal. It covered each of the stops in adequate amounts of times. The hotel selection was excellent, and the lunch stops were well selected. The most outstanding thing about the tour was the selection of the tour guide and driver. Both were outstanding. Tamer, the tour guide, is one of the best I have met in my world travels. He genuinely cares about his group and their well being and is willing to go to extraordinary levels to help them with their needs. The drive, Saify, is an excellent driver, who drove safely over very long distances. I highly recommend this tour and Fez travel because I enjoyed my trip with them as well as the company of fellow travelers!

Fantastic trip! We visited many wonderful places in Turkey. The guide, Genghiskhan was very knowledgeable and always available to help. Even after the tour ended, he gave us many useful advice, he was like a friend to all of us. Yilmaz was a well experienced driver, and the van was very comfortable. The group was small (6 people) and the company was very good. The tour was so great that I added a couple of days in Cappadocia with them. Really recommended!

I enjoyed 5 day Aegean Tour with Fez. It is quite a challenge to see so many sights in 5 days. Our guide Tamer Ozden was excellent in both giving enough historical information, pacing the tour, and organizing visits to local interesting places such, as carpet weaving cooperative. I learned about the handmade carpets, and later avoided the tourist trap in Antalia where they tried to pass machine rug as a handmade one. Food was good, hotels were excellent. Tamer took us to local food places for lunch and recommended local specialties. It was quite Epicurean!

This was amazing! It looked like a snowy mountain but was calcium deposits from the minerals in the hot springs.
