Testimonials

    • Hi Burcu and Baris, As promised, I'm writing to let you know that our Ephesus tour went extremely well last week. The tour guide, Danis, was informative, friendly and flexible to changes in weather and the desires of our group. The driver, Victor, of course, got us everywhere we needed to be safely. Even though the weather was unexpectedly rainy, we still managed to have a great time and covered almost everything that was promised to us on the itinerary. I definitely think we all got an extremely fun and informative look at Ephesus and the surroundings of Izmir. We got to see historical artifacts, how people lived in a local village (which I think was our favorite part of the tour), and even got to walk a little bit around Izmir. I will definitely be recommending Unison Travel to any of my friends who plan to visit Istanbul and are looking for a fun way to see some parts of the country they may not otherwise be able to see. You all have a fantastic service, and my group and I definitely appreciate everything you did to make sure our day trip was a success. Many thanks and all the best, Zak

  • A huge thank you to Ozgen and Burcu!! The whole package of bellydance and sightseeing in Istanbul was fantastic. I can't believe how much we packed in to one week, no time wasted, very well organised, and flexible according to people's needs or the weather (or another shopping trip to the Grand Bazaar)! It was an amazing experience that touched my heart, and I'm so happy to have made new friends, it was a pleasure to share the week with you, we will stay in touch. Love, - Rachel Hislop

  • Dear Gursan & Nazan Thank you and Nazan for all you did for us well beyond the call of duty. I want you both to know how much your care was appreciated and all of the extras.
