Turkey is located at a crossroads, linking East and West, bridging the gap between Europe and Asia. As travel professionals, we as a Tukey DMC have a special role to play. We serve as ambassadors, welcoming visitors to our country.
Guests feel this when they receive a warm and even lavish welcome of the kind that only traditional hospitality can provide. But when they experience the efficiency and professionalism of our tours, transfers, conferences, incentives or shore excursions, they will know that Western values of organization, punctuality and precision are equally a part of the Turkish character.
This twinned spirit also breeds a special empathy and understanding of visitors' needs. Our approach is always tailor-made. We create original and creative itineraries and refine them through constant communication with our clients. What is born is a partnership and friendship that embodies the true spirit of travel: People from different cultures learning from one another, enriching themselves and making the world a better place. However serious and high minded this may sound, our Mediterranean nature and amateur spirit pervade everything we do.
