Dear Kazim


I wanted to thank Baltac tours for arranging the absolutely perfect trips to Cappadocia and Ephesus.  The Yunak Evleri was a beautiful hotel with great service and the Rock Valley tour company and Nehat (I’m not sure of the spelling of his name) was an amusing and interesting guide.  The Nisanyan Hotel was an unexpected paradise…one which I absolutely did not want to leave!  We also thank you for your recommendation of the Armada Hotel….it was perfect.

I am only sorry that we did not arrange a tour through your company for at least a day for the major sites.  I had already toured them with Sami ten years ago, but even my memory is not that good!  Certainly Topkapi Palace would have come alive with a professional tour guide!  But I did get to see the Topkapi dagger (from the movie of the same name) ….. something I did not see 10 years ago, because that area was closed….  But we traveled extensively by foot, by tram, and by boat…tasted the flavors of Turkey at every food stand, ate in some good restaurants and spent our last full day on the largest of the “Princes’” islands.  I did not want to return to New York!


Again, I thank you for the arrangements, suggestions etc. and I will certainly recommend Baltac to anyone remotely interested in visiting your Country.


Very truly yours,


Eleanor F.
