    Istanbul
    Turkey offers a wide variety of safe travel full of unforgettable memories covering the mystique of the Past and the Attractions of Today.
    Let us take you into the time machine where you can travel through ages. You can walk in the footsteps of St. Paul and follow the trail of Alexander the Great. Explore some of the ancient wonders of the world: the temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Mausoleum of Halikarnassus at Bodrum. Listen to the speeches of Aristotle at the stoa of ancient Assos; stroll through the ancient streets of Troy; take a blue voyage along the Mediterranean and the Aegean following the ancient sea routes...

    Our  tours, either designed or customized, are set up to have an exploration of the past and present history and culture of Turkey. While our guests enjoy visiting the historical sites, they also find opportunities to walk through the streets of the modern cities and traditional villages. Our main concern is to make you feel as one of the locals rather than being a tourist. While our experienced and licensed local guides take you around, they also become your travel companions and share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you.

    The services are provided for our guests’ needs, but in all cases the advice conceded is based on the latest thinking from research. In case the tours do not fit you, your organizations and you have other requierements, we design you another appropriate one.

    The key point here is the more you inform us about your interests and needs, the more helpful we become.

Testimonials

We toured Western Turkey...

We toured Western Turkey with Sevil in 2004, starting in Istanbul then driving to Cappadoccia over the course of ten days. Sevil was an absolutely terrific guide, full of knowledge and extremely capable of managing the arrangements. Everything flowed perfectly, and we especially enjoyed Sevil's restaurant recommendations. Everywhere we went we dined at the best, most authentic places, avoiding the ordinary in favor of the extraordinary. We're looking forward to another trip soon, with Sevil as our guide.

Turkey is a wonderful place

Turkey is a wonderful place. It has far surpassed what I had imagined. The landscape, the history you bring the ancient past alive with your stories and your extensive knowledge. What a true pleasure it has been to travel in your country with you as our guide. The sea was a treat, the homestay a special time and the scenery just marvellous. Thank you.

Thanks so much for all your work and preparation

I have had a wonderful, wonderful trip through Turkey and its multi-layered history. Thank you so much because you were so much a part of the trip. I will always remember so much-our tour of Hattusa, the marvels of Cappadocia, our tour of Catalhoyuk with Basak, and our lovely visit with Himmet and his family in Kumbet. And there were first the highlights everyday and was filled with wondrous things to learn and see, and your information was the key to it all. Thanks so much for all your work and preparation. I have learned so much. I am sure you will be a success-you are gifted,caring, thoughtful person.

We are thankful for Cultural Trailsí organization. During September 2004, The Swedish Trade Council in Istanbul organized a three day seminar for the major customers of Scandinavia’s renowned banks, Scandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB). Our Guests were the major CEO’s of the Scandinavian companies, with exceptional and demanding desires and wishes. During these days Cultural Trails organized a tourist tour activity in Istanbul. The activity included total customer responsibility in guiding, transfer and printed information booklets on Istanbul as well as other practical issues around the event for the Scandinavian ensemble. Our guests were very pleased with the venue; hence we are thankful for Cultural Trails’ organization. We highly recommend their services.

Highly professional and very pleasant staff... Having arrived in Istanbul on business with only one day available to see the sights we were delighted with the personal tour which was well planned and organised by the highly professional and very pleasant staff from Cultural Trails. Their planning and organisation enabled us to ensure that we saw as many sights of key interest as possible and ensuring that we were both collected and returned to our hotel in complete safety.
