Dear Mr. Çiplak,
My wife and I had such a wonderful time at the Ephesus Boutique Hotel in September, 2006; we are so appreciative of your gracious hospitality, and learned so much on our tours, we have decided to seek your assistance once more for our travels.
We will be touring the Eastern Mediterranean on a cruise in October and November.
Our ship will deposit us on October 5th in Fethiye at 8:30 AM, and depart again at 5:00 PM; then we sail to Kusadasi on the 6th, arriving at 8:00 AM, and departing at 11:30 PM. The final Turkish stop will be in Istanbul on the 8th of October, at 7:00 AM till 5:00 PM.
We definitely wish to enlist your assistance while we are in these ports.
During our last trip, with your help, we explored some of the sites in the area around Kusadasi (Ephesus, Priene, Miletus, Didyma, and Mary's house). Certainly, there must be other sites of interest in this area, but we would not be unhappy to revisit some of the same places. We especially adored Hedia, so if she is available, we want to go wherever she wants to take us!
We have no experience with Fethiye, so we place ourselves in your hands.
Last time, we toured much of the old city of Istanbul on our own, but would like to discuss with you possibilities for tours there as well.
Additionally, the final stop for the cruise is in Alexandria, Egypt. While the cruise line offers a three-day Egypt extension to see Cairo and the pyramids, we thought we would inquire with you if you have any contacts in Cairo or experience yourself arranging travel and guides there.
We appreciate any help you can offer us, and look forward to placing ourselves once more in your capable hands.
Dear Mr. Ciplak:
Our good friend, Mr. Keith Wisbaum, who just returned from Istanbul, strongly recommended we contact you about our upcoming trip. We (myself, my wife, and two teenage children) will be in Istanbul from 15 August through 18 August, a very short time, and want to get the most of our visit. I wanted to inquire about both Istanbul drivers/guides and the possibility of a day or overnight trip to Ephasus. Would you be willing to recommend a package or daily rate for Istanbul highlights and a taste of Ephasus?
Any advice you can provide would be most appreciated!

Do you remember us? We stayed with you in 2004. We
are delighted to be returning to Turkey this summer. We would like your
advice and assistance in making our travel plans.
Jackie and Bill Low and Art Curtis and myself will arrive in Istanbul on
24 August. We have made plans to charter a gulet in Bodrum from 31 Aug
to 7 Sept. We will fly back to Houston TX from Istanbul on 10 September.
We want to spend 3 nights in Istanbul. We are looking for suggestions on
place(s) to visit on our way to Bodrum. We would not mind traveling by
train or private car. We want to spend 2 days in Bodrum, either before
or after the boat trip. Another couple will join us for the boat trip.
After departing the boat on 7 Sept, all of us (3 couples) would like to
stop in Ephisus on the way back to Istanbul. Except for the
international flights we have not made travel arrangements.
We will need a hotel in Istanbul. I looked at your web site and the
Celal Sultan Hotel would be of interest. We would like a small hotel in
Sultanahmet, with bright cheerful rooms and a rooftop terrace
restaurant. We will also need a hotel in Bodrum.
We are looking forward to hearing from you and to seeing you again.
On behalf of my friends and I, we would like to thank you for the great job done in preparing for our tour, booking of the hotels and making sure everything was done promptly. We never had any problems at all throughout our stay in Izmir and Istanbul and we thank you for making sure that everything went on smoothly. Our special mention also goes to Sevki and Kamal whom have been of great help to us in Ephesus Boutique Hotel. We also did enjoy our stay at your beautiful hotel, which was perfect for travellers like us.
We would also like to thank our tour guide Ersin, who is really one very knowledgeable guy. He took the extra mile to really explain to us the history of Turkey and also brought us to a local carpet shop where we learnt alot about carpets. By far, he had done a great job and was very patient enough with us as there were many toilet breaks taken during the tour :)
Last but not least, we would also like to thank the guys over at Turkoman Hotel for their great hospitality. Turkey had really made a lasting impression on us, a beautiful country and most of all with friendly and hospitable people.
Once again, thank you very much for your kind assistance and also being very patient with us with our constant requests and enquiries. We would definitely recommend you to our friends/families should they wish to travel to Turkey in the near future. Keep up the good work!
I'VE CALLED MY GUEST TO HAVE A REPORT ABOUT ISTANBUL... THEY REALLY ARE VERY HAPPY ALL HAS BEEN PERFECT YOUR ASSISTANCE, YOUR ORGANISATION AND THE GUIDE YOU'VE RESERVED FOR MR.AGUSTA AND MS. VALERIE VERY PROFESSIONAL
THANK YOUR FROM ME AND MY CLIENTS.
Just wanted to say hello from South Africa! We arrived safely back home, but our luggage didn't! After a big search and struggle at the airport we eventually located our luggage - thank goodness!
Thanks once again for all your help, friendliness and hospitality!
We had an absolutely fabulous time!

Thank you very much for setting up the 2 tour days. They were very informative and our guide was excellent. The other group was also good company. I would like the airport transfer tomorrow. Thanks again.
I just want to thank you for your help during my stay in Istanbul. Everything was so nice, the city, the peolple and the food! I miss the baklava so much! I really have to come back because four days in Istanbul is not enough and I'd also like to go to Ephesus and see the coast which is something I have been thinking about for a long time. Hopefully I will make it sooner or later!
I do hope to see you again and thank you very much . Try to relax a bit if you can!
