To My Turkey Advantage
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).
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.
Clothing: Casual clothing and comfortable footwear are appropriate
everywhere. However at mosques, shoes are taken off and ladies should cover from
shoulder to knee plus their hair.
Currency: The currency is the Turkish Lira. Exchange bureaus are abundant. Most merchants accept US dollars and major credit cards. ATMs are widely available throughout Turkey.
Electricity: 220 V / 50 Hz, round two prong outlets. Most hotels have US 110 V outlets for shavers only.
Group Discounts: We offer group discounts. Please select a tour or send us any itinerary for a quote.
Guarantee: Once your payment is received your tour and departure date are guaranteed. After your reservation is confirmed, any currency fluctuations and price hikes will be absorbed by us.
Hotel categories: The Turkish Tourism Ministry categorizes the hotels; the more stars, the more luxury and amenities are to be found at the hotel, a five star rating is the highest. For your comfort all of our preset tours use 4, 5 star and special category hotels. Since we concentrate on a few select hotels only, it enables us to offer more for less. Note, some less developed areas of Turkey may not have your hotel category, in that situation we use the best available accommodation.
