Editor’s Take

What to Look For in Turkey Tour Reviews

Most Turkey trip reviews tend to focus on some or all of these 5 key areas, not all of which may be relevant to you: the tour guide, travel company, service level, country or countries traveled in, and the trip itinerary.

Remember, just because you see a 1 star review doesn’t necessarily mean that person disliked the country.

It’s little wonder that we have seen consistently high reviews and recommendations from travelers to Turkey - this is a country that, while well developed and able to offer modern creature comforts - still serves up a hefty dose of ancient history, archaeology and culture. Straddling Europe and Asia, Turkey is able to offer a unique perspective to curious world travelers. 

From the reviews of Turkey tours and packages, it is apparent that the local, expert guides employed by the travel companies are of paramount importance to the enjoyment of the trip.

With language and culture barriers to grapple with, the reviewers were thankful for and indebted to their Turkey tour company’s expert guides, who acted as their North Star during a trip to a quite unfamiliar land. Without fail, these reviews were positive, some mentioning trip planners and local guides by name. Upscale tour companies operating in Turkey make it a priority to work with knowledgeable, enthusiastic guides and the work they put into finding these people has not gone unnoticed. 

It can be challenging to decide where and what to focus on during a trip to Turkey. This is where organized, all-inclusive tour operators shone in the reviews. The Turkey trip planners and, subsequently, expert guides, were able to take a varied and vast country and distill it down to its highlights in a manner that didn’t skimp on culture, cuisine, history or attractions, while never feeling rushed.

Reviewers with a good idea of what they wanted to focus on - outdoor adventure, ancient ruins - were the most happy with their itineraries. If you’re hoping to see a little of everything, look for small-group tours that hit the “highlights of Turkey.”

Alternatively, if you’re hoping to focus more on outdoor adventure travel in Turkey or Turkish cuisine, be sure to search specifically for those interests when researching a tour operator.
