Never want to repeat this experience. This was the worse place to go to like hell nothing to do there and nothing to see even and so crowded it was. I don’t know why HolidayMe insistsed for us to go there and feel so bad.Reviewed On : 25 Jun`16
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.Reviewed On : 25 Jun`16

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?Reviewed On : 07 Jun`16

So far, it has been great, we covered Istanbul and Antalya, which is a beautiful place.

What a great trip planned by HolidayMe. It was so amazing to be in turkey. the package we got was affordable, and we also made some changes to it which they allowed also. Istanbul was the first city we visited and it is just so beauitufl. So out of this world. all the towers and minars and all are just like out of a fairytale. It is also a very clean city, and the food is just to die for. The schvarma here is unlike anything any where. The holiday me ppl were right, Istanbul is a fascinating place to visit.Reviewed On : 12 Apr`17
A cliché image of a ‘bridge between the East and the West’ aside, Turkey is the mesmerising mix of the old and the new, traditional exotic and the eclectic modern. Describing Turkey is like reminiscingthe age of orientalism, a cultural spirit which defines the evocative mix of Asian spiritualism and mysticism of the 18th and 19th centuries.With a history dating back to the Palaeolithic Age, Turkeyhas been shaped up by the numerous invasions and conquests by civilizations ranging from the Anatolians, Aeolians, Ionian Greeks, to the Byzantine Empire, including the golden period of Ottoman Empire.
The country still evokes the feeling of discovery and its antiquated charm is still preserved and served with a new dash of modernity and contemporary outlook in modern day Turkey. A country lyingat the threshold of Asia, Europe and North Africa, can be termed as the key civilization or geographical zone of human endeavours. Much of it is evident in its historic ruins, remnants of lost civilizations, cave dwellings and mystical rock formations, geological wonders and a culture which is refined over a period of 600 years during the Ottoman Empire.
Turkey is a modern secular republic with a progressive outlook and key regional player in the geo-political scene of Middle East, a dynamic region. The modern foundation of Turkey was laid after a violent First World War which effectively doused the last embers of already diminishing Ottoman Empire. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, a much revered figure of Turkey and world history, laid the foundation of a new, resurgent Turkey which despite losing its geo-political influence, charted its own course in accordance with international politics and economic.
Turkey is among the top most visited countries in the world and still manages to captivate tourists by its varied charms. Diverse landscape dotted with extensive mountain ranges, tranquil traditional villages, turquoise waters of Black Sea and Mediterranean Sea, glitzy sea resorts, white sand beaches, urban cities and amazing cultural experience; makes it a country with highly rewarding experiences for tourists.
Turkey is a melting-pot of ethnicities like Kurds, Arabs, Greeks and Christians. Majority of the population follows Islam (70%). The official language is Turkish, with Kurdish being spoken by minorities. English, French and German are also widely spoken in big cities and tourist spots. The climate in Turkey varies from temperate Mediterranean to a temperate Oceanic climate.
Turkey is home to a plethora of remarkable historic and archaeological sites, as well as beautiful churches and mosques. The heavenly Turkish cuisine, with culinary traditions dating back thousands of years is a food connoisseurs’ delight. Lamb kebabs, kofta, dolma, yogurt salads, and the world-famous Turkish delight are a few irresistible signatures of the Turkish fare.This is a land where people are highly cultured, respect family values and tradition and yet thrive on all the comforts of modernity. What makes Turkey an alluring destination is its range of cultural experience, its fabled hospitality and its exotic touristy offerings.
