Testimonials

“For us, as first time ‘tour group’ people we can’t speak highly enough of this trip. Thoughtfully organised by Pam and Terry for maximum enjoyment and a fascinating insight into Turkey. Plenty of free time, great company, interesting experiences.”

Margaret and Rob Andrew – WA

“It was a unique experience as a traveller to appreciate the many aspects of Turkish life – wonderful scenery, ancient ruins, great food, village life, carpets, shopping in the Grand Bazaar, textiles – and a reasonable amount of time out to absorb everything. I never at any stage felt like a tourist. The time I enjoyed most was the great privilege I felt when visiting the villages and being welcomed into the lives and homes of the villagers.”

Margaret O’Keefe – South Australia

“The tour exceeded our high expectations. It was wonderful, and excellent value for money. We enjoyed everything, but the DOBAG villages were a highlight. The thoughtful care by Pam, Terry and our guide was also excellent. We hope you take other tours so more people can have experiences like ours. Thank you very much.

Herbert and Pauline Yeo – WA


“I was lucky enough to be a part of the first tour in 2002 and it was so interesting and enjoyable I hoped to be able to go again. This time (2006) was as good if not better. At no stage did I think ‘Ho hum, I’ve already been there’. Instead it was ‘Oh good’ we’re going back there again”. Once again the highlights were the DOBAG villages. There is nothing to compare. Don’t hesitate to go if you can.”

Reggie Lamb – WA

“Here I am mooning into the distance – reliving the village people – the atmosphere – the terrain – the food – the carpets – the colours – oh what a trip! I can only thank you both once again."

“I think your tour, Pam and Terry, is 110%. Your care for us all is special.”

Jill Hoffmann – WA (2005 trip)

“Thank you for your excellent leadership and perfectly planned and executed tour. I particularly enjoyed the archaeological experiences, the well mixed group, the historical and cultural content and the DOBAG villages experience. Even the unexpected was delightful. I would return to Turkey anytime.”

Fantastic! We learned so much about every facet of life in Turkey; history too! An excellent exposure to Turkish culture, the tour surpassed our expectations. We particularly loved the time spent in the DOBAG weaving villages.”
