Dear Kazim and Burcu, I just returned to Denver from Istanbul and am still thrilled over my trip to your beautiful country. I just wanted to let you know how much I really enjoyed the ElderHostel program in Turkey and will highly recommend it to all my friends, young and elder !. I wanted to especially say how much I enjoyed Burcu’s leading the tour group. I don’t think there could be a better guide. You were so well prepared, knowledgeable, warm, patient, well-organized, efficient, warm, kind, and entertaining. The list of compliments is endless. After your introduction to Turkish culture I felt very comfortable traveling alone in Instanbul. I wish you well and good luck on your future travels and I hope to return to visit Turkey again soon with friends. Thank you again for such a wonderful experience in Turkey. Russ Young
