G. Day Tours - beware of photograph scam!

Just arrived back from our holiday in Icmeler early June, 2015. The last day was of our hols was spent doing the Akyaka Tour from Icmeler with G Day Tours. At the end of the tour, we reluctantly agreed to pay L50 for a dvd version of the photographs and not L100 for dvd and photographs combined. This would at least reduce the financial risk if anything went wrong. We even mentioned how some tourists left Tripadvisor messages of being ripped-off by being given incorrect photos or none at all so we were reluctant to go there without some assurances. Despite all this and G Day saying they would honour the deal by bringing a dvd to our hotel that same evening at 10pm before payment was made, we discovoured when we got home, we were still palmed off with photos of another quite separate Jeep Safari and water cannon fight - not Akyaka nore our tour. Be warned and stay clear as they don't deserve your money.

Amazing how many people this happens to, but why, oh why, did you buy them ? I would have said no, as these things are usually poor standard.

Have to agree - heard so many similar stories over the years and wouldn't advise anyone to part with their cash for CDs or DVDs of any of the trips, to be honest. Hopefully a lesson learned and advice to others not to do the same.

We saw the photos on camera and were happy with them. Cameramen spent all day taking photos during the tour. He assured us we would get our photos when we discussed the kind of problems being reported on Tripadvisor. The only other assurances we could have taken was to insist on seeing our photos from the dvd before making our purchase on the the day of our departure. Perhaps people should just insist on not having photographs taken to avoid the temptation of buying!

We usually buy a cd type disc with photos on from Captain Bulls**ts boat trip and probably as you would expect you get what you pay for with no problems whatsoever.

The established Icmeler people would not risk there reputation for the sake of making a few easy quid.

These are based in the town and any problems , not that we have heard of any can be sorted the next day.

We have never had any problems getting photographs that we ordered in the 18 years we have been going. Do you think he sent you the wrong pictures by mistake?

To be honest we use eric at April tours on the main road along with a lot of members on here and have never had any problems

April tours is just one of thousands of tour operators, but the operator has no control over quality of service and Captain Bull#@% has its fair share of criticism, especially where All Inclusive deals are concerned. You get what you pay for applies to all trips as they are all priced the same based upon our enquiries. Tripadvisor will be the best judge of people's experiences, however, if any restorative measures do take effect, we will let you know.

You always have the chance to look at the CD before you buy it or take it home just about anywhere will have a laptop you can check it on.

Thats what we do anyway :))

Not looking to have a pop at you Rob.

Would agree with Sue, Eric is a 100% spot on bloke.

Regarding Bulls**ts trips, have heard the odd grumble about not getting a sunbed maybe, but certainly not any thing to do with cd discs.If the camera bloke let down the customers Bulls**t would not let him on the boat day after day.

As promised in the event of a more positive outcome of how the story began and ended a full week after returning from our holiday in Turkey. To get some kind of assurance of getting our dvd of Akyaka trip, I asked the camerman to give us details of his name, address, and contact information just in case. A slip of paper with hand-written name, address and mobile number was handed to us at the time we picked up the offending dvd from our hotel and parted with our money on good faith. Back in the UK, a series of text messages and a full week later, we had our

photos sent to us via e.mail attachments. No dvd which was the original verbal contract but at least we got our photos. It's difficult to see how such a mistake could have been made but that was our experience so take care.
