A beautiful gem
Sep 2021
Fez travel was a great company to travel with on my recent trip around Turkey. Everyone at Fez was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! Our guide, Chagmon was extremely knowledgeable and explained the history of area as well as any professor would. He made sure that everyone in our group had what they needed and wanted. He knew some of the best local places to get food and to shop. We were supposed to do a different tour when we arrived (2 of us) but another group had some cancelations so we were happy to combine groups and change up our itinerary. This gave us an extra day in Istanbul so Chagmon put together a wonderful day long itinerary around a part of the city we did not see the day before and took us to enjoy some delicious local spots.

Everything throughout this trip was very well planned out and taken care of to a great level of detail. I highly recommend this trip (Magic Carpet) or this company in general to anyone looking to travel to the area!

DEFINITELY USE FEZ!!!
Oct 2021 • Friends
IT WAS INCREDIBLE! I’m going back! I had a client refer me to Fez Travel because they did the tour and they’re actually doing a second one with Fez again- so I knew I could trust them. Everything was so smooth. They booked us an extra night at the hotel since we got in a day early. Fez arranged transfers to and from the airport which were timely and easy. The whole tour was fabulous. We loved our group, loved our guide, loved our driver. The FOOD IS INSANE!!! Seriously, just go for the food. The tour included breakfast and dinners at the hotel- never disappointed. We added on the hot air balloon ride, the Turkish Folklore Night (must-do!), and a flight back from Cappadocia for a total of around $300 extra. Such an amazing company. Good communication when I had questions via email. I’ll be back for sure and can’t wait to try their tours in other countries! I’m a single woman and would’ve felt totally safe doing this trip solo.

I Love Turkey
Jul 2021
Our tour was composed of eight of us in total (including our guide and driver). This ratio was excellent for delivering individualized attention. I had never taken a guided tour before this trip. I was not sure what to expect. It was a fantastic experience. It felt as I was on an educational field trip back at school. Our tour guide, Genghis Khan, was extremely knowledgeable on his homeland's history, geography, religion, archaeology, and culture. He is an exemplary ambassador to his country. I learned more in ten days than I could have imagined. He was patient with the many questions we had. He went out of his way to help us in the translation of food, purchases, etc. I can honestly say that I now have a new friend in this world.
The accommodations were excellent, the food was extraordinary—I can now count Turkish food as some of my favorites.
I am trying hard to think of anything that could have been improved this trip, and I cannot think of anything. Well, nothing worth mentioning. Small little things that have no significance and would be encountered in any tour. The positives outweigh entirely any negatives that arose in the trip. If I had to say one regret was that I did not speak Turkish, I would have loved to know Yilmaz, our driver. He did excellent job driving and being cheerful the whole trip. I truly loved my experience. My favorite was the camaraderie that we all shared on our adventure. Next year I am planning a trip to Egypt, and I am going with Fez.

Great Value for the Money.
Feb 2021
Had a great experience travelling during the pandemic. Our guide Genghiskhan and driver Murat went up above and beyond to make sure we got the most out of our trip. Special thanks to both of them. I hope Fez travel treats them very well and recognize their value.
Hotels were very good.
No complains, just a happy customer here.

An Unforgettable Adventure
Dec 2020
My partner and I travelled on the 10 day Magic Carpet tour in December 2020 (during COVID-19). We were apprehensive to book due to the uncertainty of travel currently, however Fez Travel allowed for a flexible payment option in case travel restrictions changed. Luckily, all went as planned and our tour was an unforgettable experience! Our guide, Çağman, was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Turkey and surrounding areas, which gave us all on the tour a great appreciation for the amazing sights we saw. If you have an interest in history or archaeology, I would highly recommend this tour!
Traveling during COVID-19 has its pros and cons. It wasn't too busy in most places, and some sights we even had entirely to ourselves. Seeing ancient ruins with no crowds was a once in a lifetime experience. The biggest downside was that some places were closed, but this was hardly an issue. Our guide went above and beyond finding good restaurants even during lockdown, and recommended lots of places to go when we revisit Turkey after COVID.
There is a lot of driving on this tour, since you are covering a lot of Turkey in a relatively short time. However even the long drives didn't feel too long, since there were plenty of stops to be made and our guide kept us busy with stories about Turkey's history.
This tour was a fantastic introduction to Turkey and its diverse cultures and histories. We can't wait to visit again!

Fez Travel, 10 DayMagic Carpet Tour, November 2020
Nov 2020
My wife and I took the 10 day Magic Carpet Tour with Fez Travel. This tour is highly recommended as an introduction to Turkey and a chance to see some of Turkey's world class highlights. It was a privilege to see some of the sights in Istanbul, Troy, Ephesus, Cappadocia etc.

With the current COVID situation the sights are not crowded which makes now an even better time to go to visit Turkey. On the day we took the balloon ride in Cappadocia there were approximately 40 balloons operating, while in normal times there are over 150!

We also really enjoyed our Guide Goksu Pamir (this guy really knows the area and it's history) and our excellent driver Seyfi, they were truly world class! We highly recommend getting them if you can!

For a recommendation on improving your experience we would suggest spending an additional day in Istanbul to visit some sights not covered during the tour and also spending an additional day in Cappadoia to be able to further explore this amazing area!

This tour is a good one, do it!

Our observation was also that Turkey is a safer country (from a street crime perspective) to visit than Italy or Greece. The people there are fantastic and very friendly.

A chance to explore the Western half of Turkey
Oct 2020
I travelled on Fez Travel's Magic Carpet Tour during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

Sites visited

Particular highlights for me were
* Ephesus, more deserving of the title "ancient city" than any similar sites I've visited before
* Pammukale, not like the photos that first piqued my interested in visiting, but because I'd read about it in advance I was not disappointed
* Cappodocia

Some sites were under partial restoration, including Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the Grand Theatre at Ephesus. All worth viewing, but should be more impressive once restoration is complete.

I would have liked more time in Pammukale as I choose to visit both the calcium travines and the ancient/Cleopatra's pool. I swam in the pool, and took all the photos I wanted of the travines, but it would have been nice to have an extra 30min just to take it all in.

I was less interested in the shops. This tour included four.
* Carpets, including a couple of demos. The method used is one unique to Turkey, and has been handed down over generations.
* Leather, including a fashion show that was a bit of fun.
* Jewellery, including a chat about the stones unique to Turkey.
* Ceramics, including a demo. Also a business handed down multiple generations.

Ultimately each of these was intended to get you to spend your money. The sales people were polite and not pushy or intimidating but I would have preferred to skip both the leather and jewellery shops.

Optional extras

* Ancient/Cleopatra's pool in Pammukale
Unique experience, but it would have been helpful to know the arrangements for taking photos in advance. It seems unfair the pool do not allow people to take their own photos in the pool when they were offering photo services themselves, and couldn't even describe the photo services they were offering, I really wanted an underwater photo.

* Whirling Dervish show
Good to watch, but I feel some of the significance was lost on me as I don't understand the language of the songs played.

* Hot air ballon ride over Cappadocia
Incredible, the combination of coloured balloons, interesting terrain, and sunrise made this a very special memory.

Tour guide

Gurksu was knowledgeable, sharing with us the history, and geography of the country and it's seven regions. We learned the Turkish word and pronunciation for cheers, "şerefe", but it would have also been helpful to learn the same for "thank you" early on in the tour.

He answered almost every question we had, was polite, and looked after us by negotiating better deals for the shoppers and getting us extra dishes for free with our meals. His recommendations of particular points of interest at our tour sites, resturants, and dishes were good, and I never felt unsafe on any of our walks or stops.

His English was very good and he was friendly, but professional, though I would have felt more comfortable if he wore his face mask over his nose more often.

It also would have been nice to hear more stories on our drive. Maybe a fable or two from Islam, or stories of the Sultans, maybe even some of Rumi's poems.

Accommodation

Due to the pandemic our hotels were upgraded. They were a mix of styles, from a resort style hotel, to a cave hotel, to a homely city hotel, to modern hotels. It seemed as though across our group we got to take turns in having an especially good room, at the cave hotel my "bath" was more of a hot tub, large enough to lie in!

The food served was mixed, some hotels better than others, though none bad. Similarly the cleanliness, though none bad, was mixed, and a little more attention to detail wouldn't have gone awry. All the staff were polite and although perhaps not fluent in English, I had no trouble communicating with anyone.

The spa at Adempira Hotel in Pamukkale was excellent, and MDC Cave Hotel in Cappadocia really was something special.

Driver

Seyfi was always on time and I never felt unsafe as we drove through the country. He didn't speak English but was polite enough to join us for meals after we spotted him having his on his own and invited him to join us. He had a smile and a joke with us when Gurksu translated for us, and stayed behind at a restaurant when one of our group invited us to go ahead, to make sure she was okay and safe.

He always wore his mask while driving and was armed with hand sanitizer ready for whenever we ented the coach, which itself was fitted with a hand sanitiser dispenser by the door.

Overall

It was a very good experience, and the memories will last me a life time. Only a few niggles kept me from giving a top score, but it is no doubt achievable in the future.

Thank you Fez Travel.

Magic Carpet 10 day tour
Oct 2020
Fantastic tour. Covered just about every aspect of Turkey you could think of. Cultural, historical, natural wonders, cuisine, craftsmanship.

Started in Istanbul, then Cannakale,Gallipoli, Kusadasi, Troy, Pergamum, Ephesus, Pamakkule, Heirapolis, Konya, Cappadocia, Ankara, return to Istanbul.

Activities covered: Religious site visits, Bosphorous sailing (optional), Silk making, Rug making, Soft leather garment making, Hot air ballooning (optional), Wine tasting, Whirling Dervishes religious ceremony (optional).

First class tour support from Fez Travel with Goksu Panir (affectionally known as "G") as Tour Guide and Seyfi (Seyfullah) as his Driver. G has a great depth of knowledge on all aspects of Turkey, a fluent command of the English language and is a friendly, generous man. Seyfi is an exceptional driver and possesses awareness as I found out when he handed me my camera after I had left it on the bus by mistake.

Always full days, some long, all 4 star accommodation except Konya, a 5 star hotel, breakfast included, and 6 evening meals once the road journey began.

A superb value for money tour taken in good, mid-October weather. It rained on the tour day of Istanbul only.

I was lucky to meet 5 other wonderful tourists in my group and we shared many laughs, ate lovely healthy food and drank juicy local red wine as we enjoyed each others company.
