Dear Gamze, It was really a wonderful experience visiting Turkey and we loved it very much! It was very memorable and we felt very safe while there. We definitely will want to return to see other parts of Turkey next year. Thanks so much for organizing and suggesting places to see around Istanbul and we loved the Black Sea and Princes's Island tour very much. The guide who took us to the Bahai house in Edirne was very professional and nice and we enjoyed going with him that day on that long trip. I will not hesitate to pass your contact information to all of my friends if they want to visit Turkey. Again thanks so much. I wish I had the chance to meet you in person to thank you while I was there. one of the guide who took us to Prince's Island, I think his name was Juniot (maybe wrong spelling, sorry) told me that you are a very nice person and your tour company is the best! Thanks.. Regards, Shoba
