Subject: Our recent tours in Turkey

Dear Hulya,

I want to thank you for the very efficient arrangements that you and your company made for us on our recent (first) visit to Turkey. Your guides were superb; the pick-ups were prompt and efficient; the hotels, particularly the MDC Cave Hotel were very good. Thank you for being on call when the question arose about the hot air balloon ride.

I have posted a review on Trip Advisor and hope this will be beneficial in attracting more travelers to your service.

Subject: tours to Troy and Cappadocia in June 2014

Dear Hulya,
My sister, Anjana, and I left Turkey on June 10th after a wonderful holiday in your beautiful country. We really enjoyed our tours to Troy and Cappadocia. We are very happy with all the arrangements you made for us. Mr. Pirol was very kind and helpful.

The companies who conducted both tours, Hit the Road and Crowded House, took very good care of us. Their guides were courteous, professional and knowledgeable about the history and culture of the areas we covered. The lunches provided on both tours were excellent. We especially enjoyed the one in Troy in the little cafe near the Crowded House hotel.
My sister and I have some suggestions that we hope you will find helpful. Since the bus trip to Troy included (free) breakfast, you should add that to your itinerary. We did not know that would be provided so brought our own sandwiches. It would also be helpful to have a map of Turkey that the guides use to show us where we travel. Lastly, it would be helpful if the guides pointed out interesting landmarks when we are on the road.

Thank you for making such excellent arrangements for us. We hope to visit Turkey again for another holiday some year. When we do, I will make sure to contact you to help us with the planning.

Best regards,

Subject: Mail from Klaus Aarsleff, Denmark

Dear Hulya,

I am back in Denmark and I would like to tell you that we had an excellent tour. Almost everything was good. Our localguide, Ali, and the driver were also very good and serviceminded people. My clients were very happy!

The only problem was the Kapadokya Ihlara hotel. The koncept is great, but the service was a disaster. Very bad food, no cleaning of the rooms etc. etc. This hotel could be one of the best in Anatolia - if they had a profesional management and a well trained staff. It is also a problem that it is so far away from Göreme. This adds a lot of driving to the stay...

I am thinking of doing the same tour next year in May. But I would like to get a good hotel in the Göreme and Urgup area. How about the Göreme Kaya?

Best wishes

Subject: Our 3 days in Istanbul

Really bravo for our stay‘s organization.
All 3 thank you for the selections you made.
We have appreciated the driver, and over all our guide Aslan who’s one to definitively keep in your guide team as first for his knowledge on the Turkish history, his good relationship, his perfect French language, and his really good advices.

Among the restaurants you selected the N°1 for French is Sultan Kosesi, but the one on Bosphorus Galata side river bank was very OK (Symbol Balik I guess).
Best Western was a good choice, but double room was a bit small, I’m member of this hotel chain.

Nevertheless, we made a big mistake as we did not follow Asaln’s advices when after Dervish ceremony we got a diner at night at one of the fish restaurants under Galata bridge , please, you should write and make a warning to your tour selection not to go at such a place.

Herewith annexed few pictures of our stay, we are disappointed to not have met you.. may be for our next trip in Istanbul or Turky, anyway we will make a good comments and advices to our French friends. What about you web site ?
In a next mail, I’ll give you, if you want, more details about few points which could help you to reach the Excellence level for such a tour.

I had a wonderful time and was very sad to leave the city and my new friends in Istanbul. I was very impressed by the organization of the trip. Everything was taken care of, and it was easy for me to relax and enjoy myself. I fell in love with Istanbul and its people as well. I have never felt so safe in the city of Istanbul as a solo female traveller. I will defiantly be arranging for another trip next year to visit the places I was unable to see. I was very happy with the accommodations in all the cities. The hotels where clean and good locations. I will be talking about this trip for weeks, and I will mention jasminne tour to everyone. This was my very first trip and you made it very special.

Hi Hulya,
I just wanted to let you know that your tour company is fantastic. Everything for our day in Cappadocia was organised to the minute. All the pick ups were on time with little or no waiting time. Perhaps the nicest thing was that the tour was a small group of only 12 people. I have only gone on large buses before and this was delightful. We got to know everyone on the tour and the tour guide was great fun and knew a lot about the area. Her English was fantastic. Can you especially thank our driver from the hotel to the airport and back. He was great! He must have been tired as he picked us up at 5:15am and was there again at the airport at 9pm. I will recommend your company to anyone who travels to Turkey. Once again thank you for a wonderful day.

Hi Ms. Ercan,

With some delay due other trips and the holidays, we come to thank you very much for the tour of Turkey you organized for us. We had an interesting experience and was rewarding to us to visit Istanbul and some of the historical areas of the country. We enjoyed the individual visits to scheduled places and appreciated work of the tour guides, they were well informed, friendly and helpful in attending our questions and needs.

Overerall the travel by land and air were carried fine, only in Kusadasi we were not met by your ground handler to assist us in the transport from the bus stop to the hotel, we had no previous word about this situation and had to resolve the problem thanks to individuals who helped us in securing local transport.

Hotels in general were good choices, we would only suggest that for future tours you may consider other alternatives if available to replace the Koray Hotel, even though the rooms were clean it did not meet the standards of the rest of the hotels we stayed, they also lacked a restaurant. The Hotel Spectra in Istanbul deserve good marks for the help and assistance they provided us. The hot air balloon flight was a wonderful experience.

We thank you again for your kind assistance in planning and executing this tour. We enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to learn about Turkey. Please send us copies of your brochures for tours in Turkey to pass them to interested friends. We take the opportunity to wish you a happy and rewarding 2012,

Best regards,

Hi Ms Ercan

We have returned from Istanbul and would like to thank you for the travel arrangements customised for us. The guides present for both tours were professional and very warm. The Hotel transfers were also very smooth and punctuality was spot on.

However, I would like to point out that the quality of our hotel - Palm Hotel nat Kusadasi was below par and the food quality was undesirable. Same as with the one at Sultan's Restaurant for the Ephesus Tour. If not for these shortcomings I would have rated the tour 10/10.

Nevertheless, thanks again for making our trip a wonderful and memorable one.

Among the travels we have done for many years, the one that you prepared was among the best.

We were amazed at the endless number of interesting sites that your country offers.

The travel plan that Jasminne Tours outlined for us was outstanding. The lodging sites were very good. The tour guides were excellent. Their knowledge of the history and monuments, as well as their charm, made for delightful
visits throughout.

Of special mention is the excellent logistics. The bus and van service from the pick-up
at the airport to the last drop-off made for comfort and convenience.

We thoroughly enjoyed Turkey and found it reassuring to have the logisitcs so well planned. We also would like to make a special mention of the great pick up service for all of our arrivals and departures. These all went according to plan giving us a relaxed time during our holiday.

There were many highlights during our time but the following are the things I find myself telling my friends about most.

Istanbul, is an amazing city and it is important to spend some time exploring the city. We found both of the full day tours gave us a great base to further explore. We spent a number of days in Istanbul exploring the shops and alleys at the end of our stay.

Cappadocia was amazing, we found lots of opportunities to explore the caves. But most of all the people here were very friendly and we enjoyed the opportunity to chat with them. The hot air balloon ride was a unique experience that everyone should enjoy. In our case for the balloon the tour company was running late, they didn't pick us up at the hotel we sat waiting in the lobby until the operator came back and picked us up. When we got to the Balloon launching place they had already started inflating the balloons, we were shown our balloon and hurried onto the balloon. We missed the breakfast there. The flight and the views were amazing, and made up for the slow start to the day.

Kusadasi, was a place where we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed Pamukale and Epheus, the history of this area was fascinating for us. Once again the guides were excellent.

We only had limited time in Turkey, but thanks to your organisation we feel we managed to get the most out of first visit to Turkey. We would certainly recommend your company to any traveller who want to explore what Turkey has to offer. Thanks so much for arranging such an enjoyable holiday for us. Hopefully we will return to Turkey one day in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Dear Hulya,
Me and my family would like to thank you and Ercan for arranging the tour so effectively. It was unfortunate we could not meet. It was very well organized . I will definitely recommend your name to all my friends who will like to travel to turkey for vacation.

By the way do you also assist in providing the visa to tourists ?

Thank you so very much for the great trip you prepared us to inland Turkey,

Subject: Touring Turkey

Dear Hulya,
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our visit to Turkey. All the arrangements which you made went according to plan, the guides were all excellent and helpful. The hotels were very satisfactory and the staff most courteous.

I think the tour operators which you chose were very professional and all knew their subjects, historical, and cultural.

On our last day we were fortunate that your agent [ Missilana Travel ] in Pamukkale had a group of 16 traveling to Gocek for a Gulet trip. They somehow arranged for the public bus to collect us in Pamukkale then to Denisli to the main bus station for the local passengers. when we got to Fethiye the driver left the local passengers off at the bus depot and then proceeded to Gocek !! where the 16 got off in the marina and we joined our yacht.

So many thanks once again for your help we would have no hesitation in recommending Jasminne Travel to anyone going to Turkey.

PS I met a Japanese lady today who is in Ireland for a few weeks then she is going to Istanbul from here where she has 5 days to spend.

I have suggested that she gets in touch with you to make arrangements for her tours.

We were met at the airport on Sep 6 and taken to the hotel, picked up for the tours the next two days and then taken to the cruise terminal on Wed.

I just wanted to thank you for arranging my Jewish Heritage tour and Sultana's outing in Istanbul. Everything was really wonderful. Bulent, my private tour guide, for the Jewish tour made me feel very safe and really knew his way around. It was such a nice add to my visit to Turkey because I got to explore things a little more "the norm" than the tourist way which was really nice since I was by myself. Thanks for accommodating me. My friend and I also enjoyed Sultana's -- it was on the touristy side but still very fun... I would not hesitate to contact you again if I come back to Turkey which I'd like to do someday. thanks

My friend and I were last minute inclusions on the Tour and you had to go to great lengths to ensure we made it, and you did.  You understood our desire to commemorate the occasion appropriately and in comfort and you realised our requirements through sheer hard work.  You were the perfect host and Phil and I are most grateful.
The DVD that I will send soon should go a long way to demonstrating how fantastic your tour is.  I know that you are striving to make your tour something special and not just the run of the mill.  You are prepared to make sacrifice and work hard to achieve a quality, value for money

Dear Erdal,

I write to thank you once again for all your help and for the tour, which was really great. I am hoping that we can stay in touch now, because of course I want to come back. You guys are all so kind and I am now full of this experience.

I would really like to add my assistance to you - to help you build up you business - in as many ways as possible. Your English is very, very good and it is plain you have excellent English speakers to help you with your various information brochures, but you never know, I might be able to help further. I have worked for a number of years on an annual contract for an author, as his copy editor, so I have experience in making things read simply and in an intersting and entertaining way. Also, we spoke of packaging this tour as 'THE Authentic Anzac Tour' and I have ideas about this, if you are interested. Perhaps we could all work together with Shane (Army Boy)?

Please let me know if you are interested in anything I might have to say about the tour and anything else.  You can always get other clients, British or Australian, to contact me as a kind or reference!

Hi Erdal

We are now safely back in Singapore. We must apologise for this late email because for the few days upon arriving back here, we were pretty much suffering from a bad case of jet lag & Turkiye-withdrawal-symptoms.

Anyway, both Lina & I would like to thank you very much for your superb tour program you had arranged for us. We enjoyed our tour of Turkiye very much. Our favourite is Cappadocia: Never before have we seen such a sight before. It was simply amazing. We had lots of pictures taken. Lina is now in the process of sorting & arranging them nicely into an album.

Really, thanks to you, our entire trip was without any problems at all. We were picked up, dropped off, ferried along for day tours & being lodged in hotels etc... all with precise timing & not a single hassle at all. But of course, if we were to count for the fact that we forgot to apply for a Turkiye Visa, then ok, only 1 problem... 

Also, we like to thank you much for your hospitality while we were there.

Absolutely, for sure, if anyone ever ask us about how to do a tour in Turkiye, we would just write this on a paper & give it to them: www.jasminnetour.com.

  We arrived home safely and I wanted to write and tell you again how much we enjoyed the trip and what a wonderful job you did in arranging everything. As I said, if you need a North American reference please feel free to have someone write to me.

  I think next November we will go to Greece so if you know someone to arrange the same sort of tour I would be grateful. Then my daughter will be old enough and I'm going to bring her to Turkey and hopefully go to see the eastern half of Turkey this time.

 Thanks again. We really enjoyed the trip and loved Turkey.

Faiz from Singapore says "Hello & Happy Eid-Mubarak!"

Assalamualaikum, my friends in Istanbul.

How are you Erdal & Hasan ?
I apologize for not getting in touch sooner upon returnng from that wonderful trip I had in your beautiful country.

I still think of Turkey quite a bit, all fond memories.

This is especially true as I remember the warm and generous hospitality of its people as exemplified by the the good people of Jasminne Tour - that means the 2 of you!

Thank you for your part in making that holiday a most enjoyable and memorable one.

My friend Mubarak and I sends you our warmest regards and greetings for this momentous days of Idilfitri.

Pls also extend my regards to Mehmet and the people from Atlantis Hotel.

Dear Erdal,
It has been a long time!  Just wanted you to know that I am sending you and Hassan a picture album today of St. Louis and some of the places we visited this summer.  Back in July I had promised to do that, it just took me a long time.  I hope that you are doing well.  I am, as always, trying to send business your way!  Matthew and I are doing great.   

Your Friend,

Hello!! Erdal !!!

Just wanted to thank you for your special care with all the traveling arrangements. I appreciate your cheerfulness and patience with all of the questions I asked you in preparation for this trip. I had a wonderful time in your beautiful country. Every day there was new scenery and excitement to enjoy. Thanks again for making my trip especially memorable. I'll certainly recommend your company's services to my friends if they're traveling to Turkey. Besides, I will post a message on the forum on the travel information page to recommend your company as I promised you earlier. Again, thanks very much for your professional and customized services. ^_^

Best regards,


Finally, I arrived in Istanbul.
My ex-roommate,Young-A introduced me to her friend, called Yasemin who's living there. She & her boss Erdal came to the airport to pick me up. I was super lucky!!! (For an additional information, they are running a travel agency there. If somebody go there, visit them! I swear they are soooooo nice.^^)

Thanks to them, I absolutely enjoyed my trip. Thank Yasemin & Eldal, again.

ようやくイスタンブールに到着。モントリオールにいた時のルームメートが友達(コリアン)のジャスミンを紹介してくれて、空港まで彼女とそのボス エルダルが迎えに来てくれた。 2人はイスタンブールでジャスミン・ツアーという旅行代理店を経営している。かなり親切でアットホーム、絶対人をだますような人間ではないので、もしトルコに旅行に行く人がいたら訪ねてください。 2人ともこの旅の最後までものすごく良くしてくれて、彼らのおかげで貧乏旅行だったはずがなんと私はほとんど四つ星ホテルに泊まったのです。おまけに、イスタンブールにいる間はジャスミン宅に滞在。

Re: Cappadocia Tours

Dear, Erdal:
I have arrived back in Toronto safe and sound - and wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all of your assistance in preparing for my tour and meeting me at the airport. 

Cappadocia is incredibly beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there - and, everything went very smoothly.

I enjoyed chatting with you and regret that I was never able to stop by your travel agency - but they kept us extremely busy with the Summit - before, during and after.  I hope to return again to your country one day - and perhaps explore the East - maybe by then, you will have your tour over there set up.

Many thanks again for all of your assistance.

I wish you all of the best.

Thank You!

Dear Erdal and Hasan;
Just thought I'd drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for everything. I've had an incredible time out here and this has defintely been a holiday to remember!

You took care of me at every step and the whole trip was brilliantly organised: I got to see a heaps and throughout the hotels and tours were fantastic. I only regret I couldn't carry on going. But I am definitely coming back to Turkey again (later this year or next) and when I do, I will be definitely be giving you a call to arrange it!

BTW: In the meantime, I am definitely sending your details to two friends of mine who are thinking of doing the same thing either this year or next, so you might get an email from at least one of them shortly.

All the best!
Mark Tuban

PS:  Right now, I'm developing the pictures (six rolls in ten days!). BTW:  if you ever get that picture of us, faiz, mubarak and mehmet on your website, please send me a copy! (I'll turn it into a screensaver).

Hi Erdal,

 How are you? I'm back at work.

its april 15th now... so its the beginning of the season, huh?

 I really appreciate your help in Turkey. Had a lot of interesting

 experience, and I'll definitley recommend you to my friends.

Tell the truth, i made a mistake. My flight was at 1330, not 1100.

So, i sat and waited for a LONG Time at the airport. Gosh! That was boring!

When u called, i was RUNNING, literally. Cos i cannot find the check-in counter.

For a moment, i thought they have closed the gates! I panicked. Ha Ha...

thought it was funny.

So, i cut u short on the phone.

Apologies. H/w, i want to let you know i appreciate your call.

Again, i enjoyed your arrangement very much. My only regret was not able  to go the Greek Islands. I didn't know you cld get to Greek Islands from  Kusadasi. Thank you once again.

 I also remember u still owe me one dinner... at a local place... what's the name?? Doy Doy?

Best regards,

Ms. Ting, Lee Hoon

We hope that you had a blessed Eid.

We had a fabulous time in Istanbul and Efes, owed in large part to the wonderful tours. Thank you for organizing both the tours and our internal travel.

Hi Erdal & Hasan,

I couldn't find your business card but I found this old email. Attaching the picture of all 4 of us. It was very nice doing business with you. Thanks a lot for making our trip a wonderful adventure! We will definitely go back to Turkey. 2 weeks was definitely too short for us. We look forward to seeing you again :)

Thank you for the excellent tour in Cappadocia and Ephesus, PDM etc. All went very well, hotels good, transfers happened correctly. It was worthwhile extending the trip to see Nemrut Dagi, and I thank you for changing the tickets with Singapore Airlines .

Dear Erdal, dear Jasmin,
We came back well to Switzerland and we are working again. Here the weather became cold and cloudy, it's already the end of summer. But we have in mind our great holidays in Turkey, we are very glad that we met you, and we want to thank you again for your help to organize these holidays.
How are you in turkey, we hope that everything is fine for both of you. Have you watched the worldcup? I think that you had good time, both your team realized great results in Korea.

Maria will leave on Wednesday for 2 weeks to Korea to visit her parents.
We hope to hear from you soon,

Best regards,
Maria & Michael
