Four new species on the life list and although Sezgin doesn't have a good handle on local birds (first birding tour in 2 years - no one comes here to find birds), the effort he makes to stop and find them is excellent. With the ebird apps, identifying was easy. Ebird hotspots were unobtainable as they were old and fenced... More

We were fortunate enough to do both Ephesus then Pumakkale with the most delightful, friendly and informative guide- Yeliz. From the moment we were collected at our Izmir hotel to our drop off on the first day in Kusadasi we were mesmerised by the sights and information. The following day we headed to Pumakkale and this even outdid the Ephesus... More

Hats off to Yeliz and Heli (sorry if I got the spelling wrong) of Castle Travel Day Tours. We booked our vacation through Effendi Tours and they sub-contracted the tours outside of Istanbul with other tour groups. For our trip to Ephesus and area, Aphrodisias and Pammukkale we were with Yeliz and Heli on a private guided tour for two... More

I spent 10 days exploring Turkey last Christmas and the best tour guide I must say is Feyzullah. He was very experienced and we kept laughing the whole day with his jokes. The stories he told about Eupheseus ancient city were enjoyable. At the end of the day, we were all satisfied and I promised to write him a review... More

Our trip arranged by Castle Travel was well planned. The pick-ups & drops were in time. Staff was very courteous and understanding! Hot Air Balloon ride was a memorable one. Accommodation at Gamirasu was excellent- a good property indeed! We enjoyed the Turkish meals as well. Bodrum Marina a nice place to walk & dine.

I am a retired travel agent. Castle Travel was very professional and helpful in organizing all details of my ideal trip. Were constantly in contact with me prior, during and after my trip to Greece. Rachael Salt is an excellent travel agent. I highly recommend Castle Travel.

Did 2 day trips with Castle, who were acting as the "agents" for the main company I used, Heritage Travel in Goreme Cappadocia (who I highly recommend!). It was a mixed experience. We were with Yigit (dude with Aussie accented English) for Ephesus area tour, and Yizil for Pamukkale area tour. The tours themselves were fine, and the logistics were... More

I booked a transfer from the Izmir airport to Kusadasi and then a tour to Ephesus. The driver was waiting for me as I exited the Izmir airport (he had a sign with my name). He told me he was waiting for 2 more people and then we would drive to Ephesus to begin the tour. The other 2 people... More
