Coming back again
by Sahil Khan
We missed out on a lot of attractions in Turkey this vacation time. we coudnt afford to pay the high priced packages so we got a cheap one ,a dn we missed out on the hot air balloon ride, which was a huge shame. Other than that, we enjoyed ourselves a lot. We hope next time HolidayMe will think of others like us and start offering osme cheaper packages with cheaper hotels but same attractions. We enjoyed the most in Uzungol, which is close to Trabzon, where we had some good times as well. Never to forget memories for us.

What an amazing place turkey is, especially Pamukkale. But hey, Istanbul takes the cake when it comes to being amazing. There is superb food, and even the street food is rocking. It is like one whole party place in the city center, and the people are just so friendly, always ready with their smiles. The hotels we got from HolidayMe throughout our trip were all amazing, but the one in Istanbul was off the charts. There was a hot tub, and the rooms was huge and came with a well stocked mini bar, which was free for us. What could be better I ask you?

Izmir is such a beautiful place! I really want to come here again and again. I was here in last July and weather was extremely pleasant that time. I enjoyed touring the Roman buildings in the city. Also, I liked that there are so many beautiful parks in Izmir filled with a large variety of flowers.

Loved the trip
by Said Qasem
I really liked everything about Izmir. I went to Istanbul 2 years ago but never been to Izmir. Izmir is a great combination of culture, tasty food, and great sightseeing. The best thing I liked about Izmir is how it looks at night. There are beautiful lights all around the city. A must-trip by Holidayme.
