To My Turkey Advantage
Our tours are designed to give you the best exposure to the treasures of Turkey while providing a worry-free vacation from the time we greet you at the airport until the time you return. As per itinerary, our guests will be accompanied by a friendly knowledgeable guide who will bring to life and give details of the places visited. Our guides are bi-lingual, university graduates and are certified by the government. 

With us, there are no hidden fees involved, as everything is clearly stated on our web pages. Our regular tour packages use only 4 star, 5 star and special category hotels (as designated by the Tourism Ministry). When we say guaranteed departures, we mean it. So a couple taking a tour together does not need to worry about cancellations due to insufficient number of participants (many tour operators require a minimum number of people otherwise they cancel the trip at the last minute). 

Services
As our name indicates, we specialize in Turkey only and offer excursions to neighboring Greece. Our services can be divided into two:

Preset Tours offer fixed itineraries and are combined with other guests. 

Custom Design Packages are specifically made according to your needs. It can encompass anything, from modifications to an existing preset tour to a completely original tour.
